Barbara's experience working with students with special needs makes her an excellent tutor because she knows how to explain concepts multiple ways.
Barbara tutors my daughter for algebra and my daughter's grades have increased greatly. My daughter says that Barbara teaches her the math in terms she can understand. Barbara is very knowledgeable, patient and really down to earth. She really cares about her students and how they do on their tests. She is also very accommodating to people's schedules which is important for kids involved in extracurricular activities. Her experience in teaching, knowledge of the subject matter plus the rapport she has with my daughter surpass any other tutor that we have tried and the proof is in the grades that my daughter has been getting. Do not hesitate to try a lesson with Barbara.
Update on Dec 21, 2012- My daughter had her test today after meeting with Barbara last evening and scored a 99!! This helped her confidence level greatly!!
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.
More and more colleges are accepting ACT scores each year. Make sure you have the same advantages as every other applicant. Take the ACT.
I am a certified NY state middle and high school math teacher. I teach high school math in Flushing. Consistent prep for any test is the key to success on that test.
