About Barbara

I graduated from Humboldt State University with a major in English - Secondary Credential Emphasis. I enjoy teaching high school and upper grade elementary students most. I also have an A.A. degree as a Special Education Aide from Cuesta Community College. I tutored two adult students with learning disabilities. I currently homeschool my two children and have been homeschooling them both since Kindergarten. My oldest child is now in fifth grade. His last independent test (Terra Nova) for third grade measured him at 8th grade reading level and fourth grade math. His overall test score measured 5th grade level. Those results speak for themselves. I'm located in the Corbett area. I am patient and flexible in my teaching style and work with the student at his or her own pace.

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.

Cooking

I can teach you to cook! Don't be embarrassed that you have never cooked pancakes, eggs or any kind of dinner. Whether you are a teenager or an adult, I can teach you basic recipes, how to measure, what tools to use, basics for temperature and more. My specialties are pancakes, biscuits, country sausage gravy, burritos, cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip cookies, enchiladas, pot roast and lumpia. Have a special recipe you've always wanted to learn to make? I have been cooking great food for more than 25 years. Let's try it together!

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently homeschool my two children and have been homeschooling them both since Kindergarten (six years). My oldest child is now in fifth grade. His last independent test (Terra Nova) for third grade measured him at 8th grade reading level and fourth grade math. His overall test score measured 5th grade level for third grade! Those results speak for themselves. I am patient and flexible and work at the student's pace.

I also have an A.A. degree as a Special Education Aide from Cuesta Community College

Microsoft Outlook

I have been working with Windows Outlook for at least 15+ years. I can teach you how to use contacts, forward mail, send attachments, send to One Note, use the calendar and tasks and more.

Phonics

I have a B.A. in English with a Secondary Credential Emphasis and an A.A. as a Special Education Aide. I have also been teaching phonics to my two children for six years for their homeschooling studies.
