I am a public speaker and love to zap anyone with the "I can do it" attitude about life long learning.
B.S. in Mathematics -- MATH and reading are my passions!
Prior tutoring successes have included algebra 1 tutoring of a flunking student who not only passed that course, but became an engineer because he found he liked math and science. Another student was flunking trigonometry. He came to me the NIGHT BEFORE the final, stating he had to pass that exam with a B or better. He made an A...

Knowledgeable, insightful & patient tutor.
Barbara is extremely knowledgable in math & computer science. She is extremely creative in her approach utilizing a selection of exercises, puzzles, practice problems & timed drills to accomplish necessary skill mastery and encourage “out of the box” thinking. She takes the time to really understand how my child thinks and processes information as well as how he responds to successes, challenges and failure. In the course of a one hour session she somehow manages to introduce stimulating, growth producing content in a multitude of ways, reinforce & improve fundamental skills and helps my son recognize when stress becomes problematic & counterproductive. She then introduces a way of approaching the challenges from a different perspective reducing or eliminating negative stress. My son always returns from his sessions inspired and motivated to learn more and with his confidence bolstered. Working with Barbara is the high point of his week.

Great Experience!
Barbara really helped my daughter understand Geometry. She was also able to assess what Lily needed to work on and gave her more practice. I will definitely hire her again for a tutoring session. Instead of flunking again, Lily made a B on her last test. Lily had a huge improvement in skills and confidence.

Awesome First Session
My son was very comfortable with Barbara and she provided a website for him to practice his skills outside of the tutoring. I look forward to him reaching his goal with her help. Very thankful we found her.

Great tutor!
Mrs. Barbara taught me to be prepared for the writing section of any standardized test by having a universal template ready. As for what to write about, she told me to have about 20 examples from sources that I am familiar with or that I have a lot of knowledge about. Mrs. Barbara helped me create a practice plan to get better by telling me to write at least 5 practice essays in preparation for my next test, with time limits set starting from a longer time to eventually having less time than the test actually gives you to be more than prepared. I liked how she gave me real examples of essays to show me how it is done.

Outstanding Math Tutor!
I can't say enough about what an exceptional math tutor Barbara is! We were very lucky to find her to help my 14yo son study Algebra 1. Barbara is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and direct. She quickly pinpointed the areas he was struggling with and always emailed a report of what they had worked on with a list of skills he could practice in his own time. My son gained the confidence & skills he needed from working with Barbara & I would strongly recommend her!

Great tutor
Barbara was very thorough and patient with my daughter. She developed lesson plans to address her weak areas. She also provided separate test taking strategies for each exam (SAT and ACT). These helped my daughter to increase her scores. Thanks for a job well done.

Extremely patient, but firm
Barbara consistently manages to get my child to participate in an area of study that creates high levels of frustration for her. She is excellent!
