About Barbara

Hello! I am an energetic and passionate PA-certified teacher (English 7-12, Reading Specialist K-12), a full time gifted support educator, literacy specialist in Bradford, PA, and a lifelong learner. I work in person as well as online with students of all ages on reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, comprehension, study skills, and test prep for the PSAT, SAT, and ACT.

I have been a teacher for 5 years and have experience with students at all levels and abilities. This includes students struggling with dyslexia and other reading challenges. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education and English from Clarion University of Pennsylvania where I proceeded to spend a year in AmeriCorps tutoring, mentoring, and designing an after-school program for troubled youth in Pittsburgh, PA. My passion for learning and literacy lead me to study Adolescent Literacy at St. Bonaventure University, where I earned my master’s degree. My intensive studies directly informed my literacy and tutoring techniques, which are both research-based and effective!

In my tutoring, I focus on the goals of the students. Whether you are looking to learn how to improve your reading, writing, and vocabulary in order to improve grades or earn a higher score on a test, I will find out how you learn best so that I can help you be as successful as you choose. It is my core belief that anyone can learn and personally improve!

I love what I do and working with students of any age. I take personal joy and satisfaction in seeing my students succeed at meeting their goals; feel free to messages me about yours, I’d love to speak with you!
