Barb is the best. Period. If I were to imagine the perfect tutor, she would surpass my dream. She is more than someone who has vast experience tutoring kids. She has great knowledge of specific programs that WORK for kids who struggle with reading and writing. I cannot believe how much she accomplishes in each lesson. She works on so many levels: basic reading skills, handwriting, fluency, power sentence and paragraph writing. That was what I asked her to do.
Then she noticed he needed help with organization, planning homework deadlines, essay writing, and added that to his lessons.
The day after she found out he had ripped a homework assignment in two in frustration, an index card appeared on our fridge door: "Things to to when stressed", with a list of stress-relieving activities that did NOT include ripping one's homework. Or yelling at parents!
My son has made incredible progress in the months she's worked with him. He looks forward to his sessions with her, and sees great improvement. He's proud of what he's accomplished. He himself says he's learned more with Barb in a few months than in the past two years at school. I agree completely.
Barb is very professional and always follows up with us on my child's progress throughout his sessions. I love the thoroughness of the reviews she provides. My child really enjoys his visits and looks forward to each session. I, as well as his school teachers, have noticed much more enthusiasm and engagement from my child while learning since he has been seeing Barb. I truly appreciate all her help, expertise, and professionalism.
