I am a certified teacher with over 22 years experience teaching children with learning disabilities available for tutoring English, math, reading/comprehension, decoding strategies, reading fluency, spelling, writing, challenging End of Grade test preparation, and general study skills.

I was trained by the International Orton Dyslexia Association to teach individuals with dyslexia and/or ADD/ADHD. I use the Orton-Gillingham, multi-sensory approach to teaching, which uses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic methods. Students will receive systematic, phonics instruction, which is an essential part of any successful, reading program. Let me help your child experience academic success, self-confidence, and a higher self-esteem.

Students are taught in my home and appropriate materials are provided.

Great 1st Session

Amazing...looking forward to watching my daughter push herself to her full potential. My child had a great time and came out of the first session feeling great about herself.

Thorough, Patient, and Kind Tutor Certified in Orton - Gillingham!

My 9 year old son started with Barbara over the summer to help him with his phonics. We were looking for someone who was certified in the Orton-Gillingham program and was happy to find Barbara. While he resisted the idea, he quickly took to her after just a few minutes allowing me to feel comfortable leaving him to learn from her right away. I love the fact that she is not a full-time teacher and, therefore, is not burnt out and seems to take on all of her students with as much energy as if they were her full-time students. My son had his own cubby and notebook where he recorded all of the new material he learned. She took the time to really know him and even tailored his lessons around. For example, he has a fear/fascination with thunder and weather so she sought out reading passages that involved that. In addition to teaching phonics, she also realized the importance of him learning vital study skills such as highlighting facts in passages and incorporated writing skills. I also appreciated the notes she wrote up after each lesson so I knew what they worked on and her willingness to talk with me outside of the hour to address any concerns I had. I truly believe that the work that he did this summer will greatly benefit him during this upcoming school year in third grade. In our last lesson, she helped him write a speech for class when he decided to run for his Student Council. When I asked him what he could suggest that teachers at his school do, he said "they should teach the "Fzsl spelling rule" like Mrs. Barbara does! Can't ask for a better testament!

Sincere & most helpful!

She really helped my high schooler break down the fundamentals of writing, allowing him to learn through his ADHD and excel in class with excellent marks!!!! We are very grateful and plan to go back to her when the next English class is scheduled.

Engaging tutor who helps reluctant readers build their confidence

Barbara is phenomenal! Not only was Barbara creative and patient, and but she made it fun. Our reluctant reader couldn't wait to get to Barbara's tutoring session each week. After working with Barbara intensively over the summer, our child is now not only enjoys reading, but is reading above grade level. The skills and tools that our child learned have made all the difference in her confidence and abilities. So much so, that she no longer needs additional tutoring. We've had an amazing experience, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Barbara!
