About Barbara

Montessori math in particular is hands on, sensorial, sequential and actually fun. From counting to algebra and geometry, the Montessori methodology allows students to develop a deep and clear understanding of mathematical operations and ideas. I have many of the Montessori materials as well as the rigorous Montessori training for using the materials. You will have a whole new level of understanding mathematical concepts, and as a consequence, you will LOVE math!
Montessori materials for language are equally ingenious; they work for English as well as foreign languages. Since I am German, I have learned several languages and am well qualified to tutor German, Latin and beginning French. I love grammar (no wonder, I used to work as a linguist and lexicographer for a company that developed translation software)!

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.

Flute

I have studied flute for 10 years and played in various orchestras, chamber groups and bands in Germany as well as the US. I have participated in intensive music camps. While working on a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, I studied composition and music theory at Washington University, St. Louis. I have also taught flute and recorder to children and adults.
