About Barbara

I am a dedicated educator and I excited to help all students reach their full potential. I have taught in an elementary school setting for 6 years. During those 6 years, I have tutored students both before school and after school. I love the smile I see on students and parents faces as we watch the student reach goals that previously seemed unattainable.

All students can be successful...it just takes the right tools. What are the right tools, you ask: everyone on board and willing to put in the time that it takes; realizing that we are a team, parent, tutor and student; and acknowledging that no one is perfect, and be willing to working with each other.

Success should be measured in small steps and we must learn to celebrate even the smallest victories.

I am a certified ESL teacher. Teaching students the basics of the English language and reading is very important. It is my goal to ensure that both parents and students are prepared to work hard, because success takes teamwork. I work with students at their level and guide them so they realize that they can achieve their goals. Sometimes both parents and students are frustrated with the reading process. Together, we can make sure that success is on the horizon.

I have a love for students and education. It is my job to help both parents and students learn to enjoy school and tutoring. Handwriting and spelling can be fun....we just need the patience and realize that it can and will be done. In this day and age, handwriting and spelling have taken a backseat to computers and spell-check. It is my goal for students to enjoy reading, handwriting and spelling.

I look forward to starting our sessions and watching our growth and progress.

I am so excited to help everyone feel successful and realize that they can do anything they put their mind to.
