About Barbara

I have a Master's Degree in Education and have taught grades 2 through 5. I bring over fifteen years of education experience to tutoring sessions which focus on Reading, Language Arts, and Writing. I am very familiar with helping students gain more confidence academically so that they experience increasing levels of success in their own classrooms.

I also tutor adult students who are learning English or improving their level of English conversation. I am a native English speaker. In these language lessons, I include topics which are of interest to the student in order to make learning more engaging and relevant, as well as exploring American culture. I allow student necessity and interest shape the lesson and content; therefore, each tutoring experience is unique.

I love a variety of teaching and learning! Whether providing academic or language tutoring, the lessons I create become a powerful and meaningful experience because I take time to get to know student needs and help set realistic learning goals. These goals are reviewed periodically and adjusted as learning increases and interests expand.

I have a teacher's heart and the expertise to help students of all ages grow and succeed. I am eager to assist students on their own learning journeys.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have also been teaching adults who are English language learners in group settings and as a private tutor.

Proofreading

I have proofread peers' professional writing, a Master's Thesis, a blog and 'ordinary' communications documents.

Writing

I have a Master's Degree in Education with a concentration in Language Arts. Pieces I have edited for others include blogs, professional communications and documents, as well as Master's Thesis.
In addition to education, I worked within the medical field for over ten years and have a lifelong interest in medical subjects.
