All of our teachers have a Bachelors and/or a Masters degree in their chosen field of education and some hold a California State Teaching Credential. Additionally, our teachers are TB tested. They take care to bring each student personal success.

About Mary & Ken Bartelt

Pastor Ken and Mary opened the Bartelt Education center in 2002, located in the Raley’s Shopping Center. They were the first tutoring center to come to Yuba City. They strive for excellence in order to give each student their own personal success. The Bartelts have a strong background in Christian Education from the Lutheran Church school system. Ken was principal and a teacher and Mary was teaching and serving as Pastor’s personal assistant.

They participated in the Title One “No Child Left Behind” program for many years serving the Marysville, Yuba, City, Live Oak, and Gridley school districts. They have served the Children’s Hope Family Services as a charitable outreach for many years.

Mary was raised in the Napa Valley, where she met Ken who was the Principal of the Lutheran School. Ken is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and was raised in Santa Ana, California. They have three children, seven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

Their ministry in the Lutheran Church has taken them from Napa, to Southern California, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Texas, Iowa, and Australia.

They enjoy: traveling the United States, visiting friends, sports, cooking, reading, gardening, garden railroading, and, best of all, teaching.

They plan to continue serving this community with the great team of teachers they employ for many years to come.
