My teenage daughter has been tutored by Barbara for several months now and has made a great deal of progress in her writing skills. Barbara is extremely knowledgeable and a great motivator. Since Barbara has been working with my daughter, my daughter both reads more and has taken a heightened interest in writing more effectively. Barbara has developed an excellent working relationship with my daughter and my daughter looks forward to their sessions each week. As a parent, it is wonderful to see your teenager committed to improvement and excited about the progress she is making. As a result of Barbara's work, my daughter's reading score on the ACT exam has also improved. I would highly recommend Barbara as a tutor. She is courteous, professional, good-natured, and exceptional at what she does.
Barbara J H. exceeds our highest hopes. I have homeschooled my three children for 7.5 years now, and when I was faced with a serious at times debilitating illness, I decided to lighten my load by hiring an English tutor to work with my 3rd, 5th, and 8th graders. Barbara J H. is highly qualified, experienced, kind, and enthusiastic. All three of my children love working with her, and the assignments she gives are providing excellent learning opportunities for all three children, while enjoying themselves and gaining a greater appreciation for language. We hope to work with her for many years to come.
I have to admit going into on the tutoring program I was very leery because I didn't know what to expect, however this is my third session and I have to say not only does my son love it, I love it as well. I think my decision in picking Ms H. is remarkable. We love her sincerely and I mean this from the bottom my heart this is the best tutor I have run across in a very long time.
What has struck me most about Barbara is that she is an educator who genuinely loves teaching. She patiently listened to the issues that we reported concerning my daughter's academic challenges. She then conducted a formal assessment of her own and charted a very clear road map to hone in on specific areas. Barbara has taken a student who was not very happy about tutoring and managed to get her enthused about putting in the extra time to learn how to more effectively read science, poetry, history, etc. It's been great to see the light bulb turn on for my daughter, thanks to Barb's infectious love of learning. It has been a pleasure to work with Barbara and I would recommend her to any family who wants to see results from their investment in tutoring.
Barbara is an amazing tutor. She made me feel comfortable with understanding the material. She gave me the confidence that we are going to succeeded with my English skills. Her approach is very unique. I enjoyed that she allowed me write about my self and then grade it. She will be getting an idea on me along with my writing style. Highly recommend her as a tutor!
We have been using Barbara to help our son with high school english. She not only is a great tutor in helping our child improve his writing skills, Barbara also addresses the emotional side of the equation by giving him confidence in himself and his ability. She is truly an amazing resource to help your child!
Barbara is fantastic! She was so enthusiastic about her work and so attentive to my needs as an individual. She provided me with everything I needed and, thanks to her, I got my dream score on the AP English Exam and can now skip two college courses in English!
Ms. Barbara is amazing! She was able to motivate my son who was really very down about his writing skills and doubtful of his ability to make any meaningful improvement in such a short time. He is now engaged in active reading in his spare time and has dramatically improved his writing. What I truly love most about her is her genuine love and commitment for helping young people reach their ACT Reading/Writing goals and to encourage scholarly behavior overall. You could feel her sincerity which is only surpassed by her unique ability to effectively engage students and quickly get them on track. If there was an "Apple Award" for the WyzAnt Tutors, she would win hands down!
She was able to raise my son's scores dramatically. She inspired him to read more! And, he enjoyed his time with her, even requesting an extension as he felt his time with her was so beneficial. I offer her my highest recommendation
