Hi. My name is Barbara. Teaching is my passion. I grew up the youngest of 10 children, and couldn't wait to go to school. I had a chalkboard in my house and I used to pretend to play school. It's no wonder that I am a teacher and tutor! I have worked as a tutor for years and I was even a tutor for the athletes at the University of Maryland. Currently I am a professor at Northern Virginia Community College and I have also taught middle school and high school. My students would say that I am patient, that I can break things down so that they are easily understandable, and I make learning fun. I hope to hear from you about the possibility of helping you realize that MATH CAN BE FUN!
