About Barbara

I have many years of Substitute Teaching experience in the Lake County, Florida school system. My degree is in Journalism with a Minor in English and I have a lot of experience with reading and writing.

I have helped many students over the years to learn phonics and improve their reading and writing skills.

I have taught all subjects in elementary levels. This includes math and science.

At the higher levels I have passed the teaching tests for English and Social Studies.

I had a background check, drug test and fingerprinting done at the time I was hired by Lake County schools.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a minor in English from the University of Florida. I have been a Substitute Teacher in Lake County, Florida, for the past 5 years and have subbed in many elementary school classes.

I was a volunteer in the Broward County, Florida school system when my daughter was younger and I helped with all subjects.

My strengths lie in English, reading and Social Studies, but I did take the Florida Teacher Certification exams back in 2008 and I passed all the subjects for K-5 as well as the Social Science 6-12 test.

Social Studies

I have been a Substitute teacher in the Lake County, Florida school system for the last 5 years. When I started subbing, I took the Florida Teacher Certification Exam in Social Science for grades 6 -12. I passed this exam on the first try.

I have substituted in many Social Studies classes over the years. I am also very interested in History, geography and economics, so I have a good understanding of these subjects.
