About Barbara

I tutor beginning and intermediate level students who would like help with their English language skills. Lessons may include a focus on comprehension, speaking and pronunciation, vocabulary, spelling and writing or all of the above depending on the student's needs and goals.

I have been tutoring for five years with a local literacy group. My background includes undergraduate and graduate degrees and work as a professional writer and editor.

My schedule is flexible. I meet with students at the local County libraries. I am generally available Tuesday through Friday from 10 am-8 pm and Saturday mornings between 10 am and 1 p.m. My base rate is $40/hour.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I've worked with many adults learning English. Some are beginners and some are more advanced. By listening closely to each student I can assess their stronger skills and other areas where more assistance is needed. Each lesson will be tailored to the students' learning needs and goals. I have been tutoring for ~5 years with students from many countries and at a variety of levels.

Handwriting

Handwriting skills remain an important skill in today's world. I am proficient in printing and cursive writing. I have taught many of my students to write and I point out subtle differences in the letters that many of them do not notice.
