About Barbara

My teaching background is very diverse. I have taught middle school and high school students in a variety of subjects; however, my specialty is English grammar and composition. I have also had the opportunity to work for a large corporation. This employment stint gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and experience in business writing; it also gave me the additional insight needed to teach Introduction to Business classes at a local high school. I am currently employed as a high school English and Composition teacher, but will transition in the fall to teach for a local homeschool establishment. My tutoring experience includes summer and after school English grammar to high school students. Recently, I was able to help a student obtain a higher ACT score in the language section of the test. My highest degree is a Masters in Business Administration. My teaching background is very diverse.

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 phonics as a reading program for the past 30 years. I believe it is the best type of program by which to teaching reading to students. My current position is the principal at a small private school in Laingsburg, Michigan. We teach our students to read using the Abeka Phonics Program.

A real blessing!

Barbara Vincent was a true godsend to our special needs son, Kyle, and to our family. She was patient and kind and possessed the skills needed to teach someone who has difficulty with learning. Although Kyle didn't really mind doing schoolwork/homework in the past, he was never excited about learning as he is now, thanks to Barbara. He is reading and he enjoys reading! Every parents dream. :) Tha
