About Barbara

I am a retired teacher with many years' experience in all elementary subjects. I have taught in both private and public schools in Lubbock and the surrounding area. I love to work with students one on one, or perhaps, in a small group because I find it very rewarding to see, up close and personal, their growth and accomplishments. I currently work in my last school district doing substitute work, testing, and tutoring in math and language arts. I hold a Lifetime Texas Teachers Certificate in Elementary Education, and I've taught all the major subjects in grades K-6 as well as some upper level math.

I retired a bit early and have found that, as a retiree, I miss school! I now substitute at various schools and at all levels because I simply love working with children, and I love teaching.

I prefer working in person, but I would consider online learning. My hourly fee is $30. School is upon us, and it's time to refresh our brains!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 27 years of experience in teaching, primarily in the elementary classroom. I hold a lifetime Texas Teacher Certificate. In the eight years since my retirement I have tutored reading and math in grades 3-5 in a public school setting, as well as administering Texas achievement testing.

English

I've been teaching many subjects over the last few decades. English is one of my fields.

General Music

Upon entering Texas Tech with a voice scholarship I spent the next part of my education pursuing a degree in elementary education with music as my major teaching field. I taught public school music for ten of the twenty-seven years of my career. In addition, I have sung in many local musical productions as well as choirs. I also have a background in piano after taking lessons or 10 years.

Music History

As a freshman in college I was a music major. I was required to take two semesters of music history and made "A's" both semesters. Then, as a senior, I was required to take advanced music history. As a senior I was also doing my student teaching and my grades in music history did not fare so well, but I did make passing scores. Because I found it interesting, I kept my college texts and have them to this day.
