About Barbara

I have twenty years in the accounting/bookkeeping field and I am a Certified Payroll Specialist and Certified Professional Bookkeeper through the NACPB. My desire to teach math, personal finance, and other subjects comes from homeschooling my children (now teenagers) for 6+ years. My oldest daughter is now a proud Penn State student and has received a full scholarship! I have coached her in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, and College Algebra. I continue to homeschool my younger daughter and have taught Personal Finance to students (ages 13-17) in a cooperative environment.

Besides tutoring academics, I also tutor college students in QuickBooks software and accounting.
I own a bookkeeping company, in which I assist: my own clients with their bookkeeping/accounting needs, CPA's with their client's books, and other bookkeepers who have bookkeeping needs/issues that they can't resolve on their own. I have studied Business Management and Marketing Management (I have degrees in both with a Certificate in Marketing), and continue to educate myself to enhance my career.

I believe ALL students (at any age, really) can learn a subject. Finding the way to help the student learn is the key!

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.

Accounting

I'm a certified bookkeeper for over twenty years. I am also certified as a payroll specialist and QuickBooks advisor through the NACPB. I own a small bookkeeping company and work with clients in different industries.

Algebra 1

I've been a homeschooling mom since 2005, but my daughters are older now (one is at Penn State on a full scholarship) and the other is a 9th grader who works pretty independently. I have been a WyzAnt tutor for approximately a year now and I also tutor through other sites. I also have my own bookkeeping company, in which I service my clients' bookkeeping needs.

Business

I have a BS in General Business. I have an AS in Management and a Certificate in Marketing. I belonged to Delta Epsilon Chi in College (DECA business clubs) and have studied Marketing, Salesmanship, Advertising and Management in college. I have also worked in the retail, service and not for profit industries as well.

QuickBooks

I have used QuickBooks 2010 and 2011 in my previous employment of 8 years. Prior to that, I worked in CPA offices, in which I have used QuickBooks 2001 through 2009. I have worked in the accounting and payroll field for over 20 years. I am a Certified Bookkeeper and Certified Payroll Specialist with the National Association of Certified Bookkeepers. Last year, I started my own small bookkeeping practice, in which I use QB online and QB 2015 with my clients.

Reading

I've been a homeschooling mom since 2005, but my daughters are older now (one is at Penn State on a full scholarship) and the other is a 9th grader who works pretty independently. I have been a WyzAnt tutor for approximately a year now.

Voice (Music)

I was a professional singer for over 20 years with a company called Sound Relations DJ's and Entertainers and was the lead singer in a few local bands. I had professional singing lessons in Miami for a year and a half during my late teen years.

I have always wanted to coach so I held a class for elementary school children teaching them breathing exercises, singing techniques, how to hear harmonies, microphone techniques, and so on. I would like to go back to coaching, since singing has always been a part of my life.
