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.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

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.

Religion

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! ...
