About Barbara


Bio

I have taught university level courses in 2 Big Ten universities, Wayne State University and Madonna University over the past 17 years, especially in the discipline of Social Work. I am passionate about student learning and consistently rated extremely high on student satisfaction surveys. Part of my success comes in my ability to meet each student where they are, set reasonable goals and objectives, and facilitate their learning on an individual basis.

I have taught university level courses in 2 Big Ten universities, Wayne State University and Madonna University over the past 17 years, especially in the discipline of Social Work. I am passionate about student learning and consistently rated extremely high on student satisfaction surveys. Part of my success comes in my ability to meet each student where they are, set reasonable goals and objectives, and facilitate their learning on an individual basis.

My graduate and doctorate education coupled with my university level teaching in Social Work programs makes me an outstanding tutor in all the social sciences.

Successfully co-authoring writing peer-reviewed articles, dissertation, writing strength, APA proficient, and penchant for catching grammatical and spelling errors makes me an outstanding tutor for students seeking writing support.

Teaching and learning is my passion and I have experience teaching at four different university settings. Whether high school, community college, or higher education - my experience will support independent learning and success. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your tutoring needs.

Knowledgeable and insightful tutor

Barbara has been very knowledgeable, understanding, and workable throughout the tutoring process. She made suggestions I did not think of right away and was especially helpful with APA formatting, something with which I still struggle.

Knowledgeable and Encouraging

Mrs. H has taught me how to broaden my critical thinking and gives clear examples in the process. She is knowledgeable and encouraging making sure you are clear and understand the material. I am taking an online class this is my second semester and will continue using her services. I accomplished a policy report which I found very challenging and demanding for me with the assistance of Mrs. H.’s tutor. I worked very hard on the paper, and the graded reflected that. She was easily attainable and gets back to you in a very timely manner. I highly recommend Mrs. H.
