About Barbara

I have been an educator for 30 years. My focus is on English tutoring and College counseling. I have worked full time in a public high school setting my whole career. I also worked part time at a private academy with junior high school students tutoring English and SAT/ACT prep. I have always had a part time job as an English tutor. Currently, I tutor a junior in Honors English. I plan to be especially helpful to him during his senior year with college counseling and college essay writing. I am now retired from full time teaching and looking for more tutoring and counseling opportunities. In addition, I am an actress, comedy sketch writer, improviser and blues harmonica player, all of which I can also teach. I have been an educator for 30 years.
