Dear Students and Parents,
I am a graduate from Rutgers University, for my Undergraduate and Master's degrees. I have completed my Doctoral degree at Drew University, in Madison, NJ, in Historical Studies.
If you do not like history or English, ESL, elementary math, I am the tutor for you. I can make it fun and a great learning experience through different types of media, including:
reading, writing, film and internet games.
I am a former Substitute Teacher in Westfield, NJ and my studies have taken me away from teaching, which I enjoy and miss.
Now that I am finished with getting my degree, I have more time to devote to teaching again.
If you want to know just few personal comments about myself...I love animals, art and history. And of course teaching.
I am well versed in K-6 education, as my Substitute Teaching License allowed me to become familiar with the subjects taught in the elementary grades, K-6. If I am certified in grammar, writing, literature, spelling and history, etc.; these are the subjects that are included in Elem. K-6. My Substitute teaching license is certified for K-12.
As a student during my Master's program I studied religions of the world, with emphasis on Islam, Judaism, Christianity, and other Eastern religions. I am graduating in May with a Doctoral degree in Historical studies, with a major concentration on religion. My dissertation subject is on the monotheistic religions.

We love her!! — I found Barbara to be very engaging and super encouraging to my son. She came prepared and dove right in! She has a great personality as my son observed and she's fun. He regarded her very bright personality and I think this was important to him. I loved her approach and we look forward to meeting with her weekly! Thank you Barbara! ...
