About Barbara

I have a great deal of experience teaching and tutoring at all levels. I have taught elementary, middle and high school in the public school system in L.A. I've taught ESL at private schools for college aged and adult students for over five years. I have experience teaching in ESL community schools for adults. My skills in any area of language arts (writing, reading, speaking, etc) are excellent. I am also competent in tutoring other academic areas.

I love both teaching and tutoring. I love tutoring because I can work with students one-on-one and develop a program that is specialized to their style and needs. I am equally at home and inspired about tutoring ESL and general academics / language arts. I love children and adults and I very much enjoy interacting and exploring ideas in a learning atmosphere.

I am extremely patient and kind. I appreciate different learning styles and I am happy to work with students in developing a program that meets their unique needs. I have years of experience in both ESL and all areas of English including grammar and writing.

Please contact me with questions or for further details. I look forward to hearing from you and scheduling our first session!
