Patient and Experienced Mathematics Tutor
I have been working as a professional tutor for over 10 years. I studied mathematics at the University of Arkansas with a focus on pure and applied mathematics. I went to high-school at ASMSA, which is a two-year residential program run by the U of A that offers college level classes. My professors along with the unconventional courses offered from this school gave me the motivation to become a tutor.

I have been working as a professional tutor for over 10 years. I studied mathematics at the University of Arkansas with a focus on pure and applied mathematics. I went to high-school at ASMSA, which is a two-year residential program run by the U of A that offers college level classes. My professors along with the unconventional courses offered from this school gave me the motivation to become a tutor. I believed that since I was pursuing a higher education in math it was important for me to solidify the fundamentals. What better way to do this than through teaching it to others? I enjoy tutoring because it gives me a chance to share something that has been so important to me while also getting to watch students discover how truly beautiful math is. My top goal is to have my students look forward to the next session as they might not the class or especially the homework!
Throughout my years of experience I have worked with students from 1st grade to those in a master degree program. I have also homeschooled students and helped adults who are returning to school. I've had students in each US time zone as well as internationally so I'm familiar with the spectrum of teaching styles and standards in the field as a whole.
My approach to tutoring is to begin by evaluating the current math level of a student and then setting a series of goals to achieve going forward. From there I encourage consistent and disciplined study. I am open to reviewing a student's work outside of sessions and going over any mistakes or points of interest I find in the work. I can present any given problem in numerous ways until we find one that works best. My strongest skill is being able to really pay attention to a student and see problems from their perspective. I can tell if they actually understand the material or just happen to be nodding their head along. Not only do I strive to make them understand their current material but I'm constantly focused on how it will show up later.
Excellent geometry tutor
Excellent mastery of subject matter (10th grade geometry). Covers a lot of material during the lesson with an encouraging and constructive tone and enthusiasm. My daughter is looking forward to working with Barton.Peter, 9 lessons with BartonTutor responded:
Thanks for the feedback Peter. Geometry has been working it's way up the list as a favorite topic, and I always enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for it!
He has been very helpful to my daughter who is studying for her first calculous test in college. He’s very flexible and is good at explaining complex information! We highly recommend.Twila, 4 lessons with Barton
Super patient and knowledgeable
Barton is super patient and a genius at Cal. He helped me with lots of examples and I got an A on my final! Cal makes so much more sense thanks to him. Best tutor I've ever had. Definitely recommend him!Mallory, 1 lesson with Barton
Helped with my AP Calculus problems. Extremely informative and helpful. Went over limits and continuity as well as holes and other problems regarding the Unit CircleYusuf, 1 lesson with BartonTutor responded:
That's kind of you to take the time to leave a review. Much appreciated and glad I could help!
GREAT MATH TUTOR
Barton has gotten my son through Finite math and now is helping him in Calculus. It is an online class and if it were not for Barton, he would really be struggling. Barton truly cares and is always willing to help my son. I can NOT say enough about him. Great great math tutor!!!Katie, 28 lessons with Barton
Very helpful and understanding.
Barton always tries to relate what he is teaching to what I'm interested in. He isn't hesitant to show a better way of solving a problem. He has really helped me grasp some things that are difficult. He always makes sure we're on the same page and I've grasped the concept that he's taught me.Monique, 17 lessons with BartonTutor responded:
I've enjoyed working with you too! It's always a better experience when we can relate math to other topics in ways you don't normally have a chance to in school!
Very Helpful Tutor
Barton helped me understand slope intercept and was very patient, informative, and helpful. The thing I liked most about Barton is that he wrote the problem and explained it step by step and in detail so that it was easy for me to comprehend.Melinda, 7 lessons with BartonTutor responded:
Thanks for the feedback and I'm glad that you found the session beneficial!
So patient and clear! We are so grateful!
Mr. Barton has been amazing! He has been working with our VERY shy 11 year old daughter in math. She had an academically rough year last year and started this year seriously lacking confidence especially in math. She wanted to excel but felt like she was too far behind to catch up. Mr. Barton is so patient and encouraging with her. There is no pressure, he will go over the same thing as many times as is necessary and will explain it in different terms until she get it. He speaks her language! She has made all A's this year and is feeling very positive. I hear from her now that she "gets it" she "can do this"! She even asks him questions! THAT IS HUGE!! What an awesome change! I am so grateful!Christine, 15 lessons with BartonTutor responded:
That makes me very happy to hear! She's a wonderful student and a pleasure to work with.
Thorough and listened well
My daughter's first lesson went very well. She liked how Barton explained things a little slower than her previous tutor which helped her grasp things a bit better. We will be using him again!Heather, 4 lessons with Barton
Knowledgeable Trigonometry Tutor
Barton has been able to explain the subject in a way that has helped with testing and grades. He is our preferred Trigonometry tutor after working with several other tutors.Jack, 5 lessons with Barton
