About Barbara

I am a certified teacher with over 22 years experience teaching children with learning disabilities available for tutoring English, math, reading/comprehension, decoding strategies, reading fluency, spelling, writing, challenging End of Grade test preparation, and general study skills.

I was trained by the International Orton Dyslexia Association to teach individuals with dyslexia and/or ADD/ADHD. I use the Orton-Gillingham, multi-sensory approach to teaching, which uses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic methods. Students will receive systematic, phonics instruction, which is an essential part of any successful, reading program. Let me help your child experience academic success, self-confidence, and a higher self-esteem.

Students are taught in my home and appropriate materials are provided.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have had training to teach dyslexic children and ADD children by the International Dyslexia Association in 1997.

Dyslexia

I have been trained by the International Dyslexia Association to teach dyslexic children. I was trained in 1994.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching elementary aged children K-8th grade math for 19 years. I have been a private tutor sub contracted through Cape Fear Academy.

Phonics

I am certified in teaching spelling, phonics, reading, study skills, and vocabulary. I have training through the International Dyslexia Association and experience teaching K-1 in the public schools.

Study Skills

I worked at Cape Fear Academy for 15 years, and one of my duties as a Learning Skills Teacher was to assist students with study skills. I don't feel as though I need additional instruction in order to teach it. Learning study skills goes along with teaching children with ADD, which is one of my specialties.
