About Barry


Bio

Hey, Barry here! Thank you for taking a great leap forward. It’s hard to admit you need an extra boost, but it shows you’re willing to do whatever it takes to be successful. We share that commitment to success. At Notre Dame, I graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 GPA, receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Science-Business. With a near perfect score on the MCAT (523, 100th percentile), I was accepted to Johns Hopkins for medical school. Throughout high school, college, and medical school,...

Hey, Barry here! Thank you for taking a great leap forward. It’s hard to admit you need an extra boost, but it shows you’re willing to do whatever it takes to be successful. We share that commitment to success. At Notre Dame, I graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 GPA, receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Science-Business. With a near perfect score on the MCAT (523, 100th percentile), I was accepted to Johns Hopkins for medical school. Throughout high school, college, and medical school, I have enjoyed meaningful relationships with my tutors and professors. I know firsthand what a difference a caring, engaged, and thoughtful tutor makes. Deeply committed to making the same difference for younger students, I tutored Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Statistics, Biochemistry, Microbiology, and Calculus as a STEM Ambassador for 3 years at Notre Dame. During the summer in medical school, I taught science to high school students as part of the National Youth Leadership Forum.

Alongside teaching, I am passionate about mentoring and helping others move confidently and swiftly towards their goals. I was the President of College Mentors for Kids at Notre Dame and Curriculum Coordinator for BASE Mentoring at Johns Hopkins. Both of these activities involved creating and implementing lesson plans for high schoolers and providing needed mentorship. I founded Pathways to Success and was a Building Bridges mentor, two programs focused on taking college students to the next level.

My score on the ACT was a 35, which is in the 99th percentile. My score on the MCAT was a 523, which is in the 100th percentile. I am qualified to tutor for the MCAT and ACT, as well as provide coaching for both college and medical school admissions.

Excellent Tutor!!!

Barry is amazing as a tutor. He is super personable and was able to establish a rapport with my son and daughter very quickly. He does a great job of explaining what is complex or hard to understand for some---in a very simple way that is easier to digest. At the same time, he is very encouraging and supportive as a tutor which helped my kids to feel more confident about what they already knew and the material that they were learning or reviewing with him. Cannot say enough good things about Barry. I would highly recommend him to others!

Very Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor.

Barry is a very knowledgeable and patient Tutor. Takes his time to well understand the problem and comes out with useful suggestions and advise. He has very good understanding of the college admission process and gave us some very nuanced suggestions, that my son found very helpful. I will highly recommend Barry. I would like to thank him for his time and valuable suggestions and advise.

Excellent teacher!

He started working with my son and now my daughter switched over to him also! Both of my kids are tutored by him weekly and progressing quite well. He leaves feedbacks after every lesson on what they covered and how they’re doing. Again, great tutor!
