About Barbra

What I love about tutoring is working with students one-on-one. Every student is a unique individual with his or her own strengths and weaknesses. In working with students one-on-one, I am able to get to know students as people and determine what they know and how they learn in order to reach their goals.

It is extremely rewarding to support students and witness their progress - and to be a part of their success. Everyone has the ability to read with great understanding and to write well. For some students, it just takes a little individual attention and a focused approach to unleash their potential.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Iowa and a Master's of Public Administration from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I also worked for four years as an editor in the Publications Department. I have taught developmental English at Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) and served as a tutor at the Jamestown campus of GTCC, as well as the director of the tutoring center at the High Point campus. I have held quite a few different jobs over my career where I have spent my days writing reports, proposals, and numerous other communications. I am an avid reader in my spare time and am familiar with a wide range of English literature.

I look forward to hearing from and getting to know students in order to help them meet their educational goals.

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.

Writing

I have a BA in Economics and English and a Master's of Public Administration. I have worked as a university editor and have taught English at the community college level. I also served as a tutor for community college students. In addition, writing many different types of documents has been a key responsibility for me in most of my full-time positions.
