About Barbara


Bio

I am new to North Carolina but an educator for over 20 years. Love working with Pre-Kindergartners (4) and Kindergartners. I have tutored and taught to 5th grade. I believe that education is very important and that it is a team effort. It Takes a Village to Raise a child. I love working one on one or small groups with children it allows me to give them that personal time they need to really focus and learn the concept they are working on. Some children learn better in smaller groups.

I am new to North Carolina but an educator for over 20 years. Love working with Pre-Kindergartners (4) and Kindergartners. I have tutored and taught to 5th grade. I believe that education is very important and that it is a team effort. It Takes a Village to Raise a child. I love working one on one or small groups with children it allows me to give them that personal time they need to really focus and learn the concept they are working on. Some children learn better in smaller groups.

I have an Elementary Education degree from the University of Phoenix. I take the time out to get to know the child or children I am working with because all children learn differently. I differentiate the learning materials so it works for the child and develop their skills to where they should be. I make the lessons fun for all students so that they don't become frustrated. Children are like flowers the soak up a lot of information and blossom through out the year.

English is the hardest language and in order for our children to understand and learn it they need to know the basics. I believe that knowing the basic letters of the alphabets and sounds it where English begins. Knowing how to blend and sound out words is the beginning steps to reading. Teaching students how to comprehend stories, learning the different parts of the story and being able to recall what you read lets me know that a child is developing the skill and understanding what the read. Then I began to instill the grammar portion through games, work sheets and online activities.

I have learned many ways to teach children about letter sounds, word parts, syllables, consonants, vowels and much more. With younger children I believe if you keep the children interested and make the lessons fun they will learn and enjoy learning.

I make spelling fun by incorporating all different types of activities they can do to enhance and learn how to spell. In the lower grades I may have them find the letters of certain words in magazines to spell out there spelling wor
