About Barbara

I love challenging students and when students finally get “it” it is cause for celebration! The fact that I have the ability to impact the way they look at themselves, life and the world around them is exciting and helping them to achieve their goals is exciting and gratifying.

It is important to recognize that students have individual learning needs and styles and I view myself as a facilitator, motivator and cheerleader.

I incorporate methods that are engaging and relevant to the students interest and current events.

I believe my job is to help students to succeed not place roadblocks in their way. I motivate students to dig deep to recognize and use their strengths and encourage them to work with me on their opportunity areas.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

I studied Anthropology as part of my Sociology degree requirements and incorporate subject matter into my Sociology courses.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked as a volunteer tutoring young children through my church and community organizations and relate to them in a very positive way. I have taught 5th and 6th graders as a visiting teacher in Manatee County.
