About Barbara

I just retired from teaching for 35 years and I am still enthusiastic, energetic, and interested in helping elementary students learn, grow, and shine. I love working with students and my strength lies in finding creative and innovative methods to engage them in the learning process. I believe in hands-on experiences, not dull worksheets. I am a proven teacher and I have received my National Board Certification in Early Childhood Education as well as being nominated for several Golden Apple Awards. I have been teacher of the year twice. My teaching experience has been with students in kindergarten through fourth grades.

I have taught students kindergarten through fourth-grade reading skills. I have taken many, many workshops on effectively teaching foundation skills, phonics skills, comprehension strategies and increasing reading fluency.

I know the Common Core Standards and are very used to addressing them in my daily lessons. I love teaching math and science. I use manipulatives for math and work on developing math number sense. I believe using experiments to teach science concepts.

I work well with students and parents. I can help your child improve their reading, math, science, or study skills. I can also develop activities for parents to implement on non-tutoring days.

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.

Common Core

When Common Core was rolled out I participated in a two year English/Language Arts cadre of teachers who met monthly for a day of training. We took this information back to our schools and trained our teachers.

Study Skills

As a teacher and a tutor I have coached students on ways to study that will help them with readiness for tests. I have many strategies for them to aid in learning of material.
