About Barbara

I have been an elementary teacher for 39 years at various schools at the K-2 level. Most of my experience in teaching language arts was using the whole language approach. This approach is an integration of reading, writing and spelling. During my last 15 or so years of teaching I taught using the Reading and Writing Workshop method.

I earned most of my post graduate credits in reading and writing. Recently I was part of our school's MIBLISE team, which was an initiative for reading and behavioral support. Throughout my career reading and language arts were a priority to me. I have attended many Professional Development classes to keep myself current with the new trends in education.

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.

Phonics

I have taught for 39 years in K-2 classrooms. One of my main goals was teaching my students phonemic awareness in order to become better readers. In my classrooms I have used Fountas and Pinnell, Sounds and Letters and other phonics based programs. I also incorporated phonics in my spelling and word work classes. I have taken many professional development classes in this area.
