About Barbara

As a certified teacher, I have taught all elementary subjects for 12 years in a classroom setting, in both New Jersey and Arizona. I have also tutored students in grades 2 to 12 and also adults in reading, writing, phonics and math. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Rutherford NJ, where I graduated with honors. I have a Reading Instruction Specialist Certification from Academic Associates Learning Center, La Quinta, CA.

I am a knowledgeable and patient tutor. I am passionate about teaching students to read and become life-long learners. I will provide individualized instruction for your child in reading, phonics, spelling, writing, vocabulary, math, and homework completion. If you wish, I will contact your child's teacher to help supplement classroom instruction. If your child is falling behind, if homework time is a nightmare, or if your child's grades are causing anxiety, I can get your child on the path to success. I can tutor weekdays after school and Saturday mornings.

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 taught students in K-8 in AZ since 1997, and before that in NJ. I have tutored students of various ages and skill levels for over 20 years. I have a Reading Specialist Certificate. I teach reading with an emphasis on phonics. I also teach and tutor math up to 8th grade. I graduated with honors from Fairleigh Dickinson University in NJ.

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting for several years to second and third graders. I have beautiful handwriting myself, even though I am left-handed. It's a shame that schools are beginning to omit this important skill.

Phonics

I have taught and tutored in phonics in AZ since 1997 and before that in NJ. I have a Reading Specialist Certificate and have always taught reading with an emphasis on phonics. I have over 20 years experience in this field. I graduated with honors from Fairleigh Dickinson University in NJ.
