About Barbara

I love tutoring and am grateful for the learning opportunities it's given me and for the people I've met during my work. Among other projects, I've worked with tutees on academic papers, theses/dissertations, college and scholarship applications, scholarly articles, and (once) a young adult novel.

I'm an experienced tutor with three years of college teaching experience and four years of experience tutoring writing at the college level. I have an MFA in writing from Washington University in St. Louis and an MA in English from Tufts University, where I'm pursuing a PhD.

I tutor high school, college, and adult learners at a college library near my Medford home. For students who can't travel for their session, I also tutor online. (Full disclosure: I'm still getting used to WyzAnt's online interface!) I have a 24-hour cancellation policy for both face-to-face and online sessions, with full payment expected for sessions that are cancelled on short notice.

Please contact me if you think I can meet your tutoring needs. I'll look forward to meeting you!
