Very knowledgeable
Barbara is great at providing analogies to help explain concepts. She came prepared knowing exactly what the material was that was being studied and what was going to be on the upcoming test. She knows the curruculum and knows how to explain it many different ways.

A great teacher of math
Barbara has the knowledge to teach math at every level. She understands how a step by step approach allows the student to comprehend and eventually become able to do it on their own. She prepares ahead of time by bringing practice sheets based on the lesson. She even gave a follow up phone call to make sure one particular area was clearly understood. Thank you Barbara. See you again.
