About Barbara

I carry an English minor with my Bachelor's degree. During that matriculation, my English professors often told me that I should have majored in it. I do love the English language and all it entails.

I wish to share that appreciation with my students. I have always found spelling to be my strongest subject. I won multiple spelling bees during my elementary education. I still educate myself on correct spelling to this day.

I enjoy helping people achieve their goals and find their strengths. I love turning a negative into a positive. I am grateful to those who remained in my life and helped me to overcome obstacles so that I could complete my education. I would love to pay that forward through tutoring.

The best thing about tutoring is sharing in the moment when the student understands something he didn't before or never did. I've always loved helping people and find it rewarding when I can help someone achieve something he never imagined. I love the English language.

I enjoy learning new words and concepts to strengthen my writing and speaking. I feel that appreciation for English and Grammar has fallen by the wayside in our day and age. I would like to share my love and excitement with those who need some assistance in this area.

My goal is to help students understand and value the subjects with which they require assistance. English is the backbone to all other subjects and degree fields. It can be intimidating when a person doesn't understand or comprehend what the next person does. This can affect self-esteem, which can prevent a person from succeeding. I would like the opportunity to help you excel in this area, as it will support all of your future endeavors. Please contact me today so we can start on improving your future.

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.

Grammar

Proper grammar is not taken seriously in today's society. I learned its value while working on both of my degrees. I plan to make this subject exciting and rewarding for whomever I tutor.

Reading

My love of reading as a child has grown into a daily routine in my adult life. I enjoy reading and researching topics for better understanding. This not only helps me in my current position, but with strengthening my writing and spelling.

Spelling

I have always found spelling to be my strongest subject. I won multiple spelling bees during my elementary education. I still educate myself on correct spelling to this day.

Writing

I write as a hobby. I had two articles published in 2014. I am working on another article as well as a book for publication.
