My daughter is excited for Algebra again!

Barry helped my daughter by guiding her through problems... seeing where she was getting the concept wrong and redirecting her efforts. She hasn't stopped gushing about how much fun math is again.

Kaitlyn, 3 lessons with Barry

Great tutor!

Barry has been wonderful in tutoring me for my college algebra course! Was able to pass it with an A which is a big step for a girl who has never been good at math! Barry was very patient and made me look forward to learning something new each lesson!

Ashley, 11 lessons with Barry

Super helpful, and always available! He’s helped me with online school from the moment it started, he re teaches the lesson and then helps you get the correct answer on homework!

Great Tutor

Barry has been teaching my son Algebra 2 concepts and my son has been improving in his class. We have tried two other tutors through Wyzant and he is the best. We plan on using him in the future.

Michael, 4 lessons with Barry

Authentic and qualified

My son has been struggling with Geometry Honors since he started high school during the pandemic. I hired a tutor, a teacher from his high school, but after a month I saw no improvements. We connected with Barry and I watched my son tune into math. After 1 week, he passed his first Geometry test of the year. I immediately booked Barry for the rest of the school quarter. I feel fortunate. I HIGHLY recommend Barry.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Barry is patient and clear in his instruction. He has made all the difference with my son this year. He is supportive, knowledgeable and inspires my son to enjoy math. I am so grateful that we found him.

Very helpful! We will be using again!!

My son was at melt down level in Algebra. We found Barry and they immediately connected. Barry was relatable, encouraging, and kind. My son enjoyed the lesson and said he learned more from Barry than he had all year so far with his math teacher.
