About Barbara

I love teaching and helping students demystify science.

I am a College professor with experience in high school and college chemistry at several schools. Some of the schools I have taught at are; Purdue University, Western Michigan University, Valparaiso University, University of North Carolina, Kalamazoo College and Parkland College.

I have consistently ranked in the top 10% of professors in college and university student surveys. My passion is the teaching of science and demystifying the subject. My background allows me to tutor anything from the Natural Sciences to Physics to Graduate Level Chemistry courses.

I can provide student and university recommendations upon request. I also have worked in the industrial sector as a Business Manager responsible for businesses at Dow Chemical Company and Henkel which gives me experience in the "real world" needs of professional chemists. This allows me to coach students that are preparing to enter the professional chemist work force.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
