I teach economics in the Minnesota State College and University System. Currently, I am a Community Faculty Member at Metropolitan State University, but have taught in the system for five years. I would like to help high school students prepare for either the Macroeconomics or Microeconomics AP exam. We will spend most of the time reviewing sample AP questions and answers to develop a competency for the material and a comfort level for the test. I provide relevant examples that makes material memorable, and, depending upon the time available, may conduct creative exercises. I also present a variety of approaches to studying that can help optimize learning.
About my teaching, one student from last semester wrote: "I was never interested in economics: however, Professor Barry changed that. He was able to take, what I had dismissed as a boring subject and make me genuinely interested. I am currently seeking my teaching license and am critical of my educators. Professor Barry was wonderful."

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.
