About Barron


Bio

Hi there!

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I got my start tutoring with Kaplan teaching the MCAT in Athens. From there I moved to Atlanta and joined the Princeton Review and C2 Education teams, where I taught MCAT as well as SAT and ACT prep courses. What this means for you is that if you want a traditional experience, starting with an assessment, followed by a detailed plan, and subsequent periodic reassessments, I can deliver.

However, that type of rigid process is not for everyone....

Hi there!

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I got my start tutoring with Kaplan teaching the MCAT in Athens. From there I moved to Atlanta and joined the Princeton Review and C2 Education teams, where I taught MCAT as well as SAT and ACT prep courses. What this means for you is that if you want a traditional experience, starting with an assessment, followed by a detailed plan, and subsequent periodic reassessments, I can deliver.

However, that type of rigid process is not for everyone. Since leaving Princeton Review for a Scoring Analytics position with Pearson Education, I have tutored privately, and while many students perform well following the traditional test-prep program, others fare better with a more flexible approach. This can be especially true for those students who need help in their subject courses at school. Whichever scenario best fits you, rest assured that I do not work via the assembly line method - in other words, I will remain flexible, adapting my approach to achieve the best result for you.

Finally, as important as subject and organizational mastery are to being an excellent tutor, for me, attitude is even more important. I think that demonstrating productivity, engagement, and positivity for students is a crucial part of my work. The ability to to reinvigorate a dragging student, or to energize the atmosphere near the end of a long day, is critical.

I am extremely passionate about teaching, partly due to the role tutors have played in my life, and also because the satisfaction I feel when helping students cannot be matched. I look forward to helping you!

Genetics

I majored in Biology in college, and due to my own interest in Genetics, I focused much of my upper level coursework in that field, taking advantage of the University's fantastic genetics dept. An example of such focus would be the small group discussion/presentation Genetics forums, led, in my case, by the evolutionary aging researcher Dr. Daniel Promislow.

Encourage open dialogue

Helpful pointers with chemistry and physical science No question goes unanswered and no matter the topic he is great I found he does not say no to a tutor session

Lily, 26 lessons with Barron

Good pace and consistent

Barron T. Assigns appropriate amount of work to the student. Keeps her interested and engaged for the entire session. Works at a good pace to keep it interesting. Extremely helpful

Amy, 13 lessons with Barron

Great teacher.

Barron really helped me understand the core concepts for math, and also taught me simple strategies on on how to work through some of the equations. He made sure to go over the material until I understood it. I will most likely do another session with Barron in the near future.

Antonio, 1 lesson with Barron

Strong tutor for GRE math

Barron is very good at explaining complex math and ensuring that you understand the different ways to solve problems. He helped me become more efficient through teaching me new methods.

Philip, 24 lessons with Barron

Barron is GREAT!

My son loves Barron's patient, easy going style and truly enjoys his math tutoring. Barron is great at teaching technique, strategy and building confidence with a student who struggles with math. Thanks Barron ;)

Rebekah , 18 lessons with Barron

Excellent Tutor!

Barron has been an excellent tutor for our daughter in two subjects. Our daughter absolutely enjoys every tutoring session with Barron.

Sam, 22 lessons with Barron

Excellent Relating to Student

My son instantly bonded with Barron. My son, who has difficulty concentrating on boring tasks, would work for two hours straight and fully enjoy his sessions.

Lois, 47 lessons with Barron

Great help

I sent out an urgent request to help my son do his summer math packet, since he'd procrastinated all summer. Barron responded quickly and provided almost daily guidance for several weeks to complete the work. It was truly a summer's worth of problems completed in 2 1/2 weeks. Thanks to Barron's flexibility and guidance, my son was able to start the school year off ready to learn.

Marianne, 13 lessons with Barron

Nice

Started out very reliable but was unable to make very critical sessions when it was coming closer to the test.
