About Barbara

Does your child need a boost in math (through Algebra I), reading, writing, or language arts?

I’m a former teacher of preschool through middle school, with a proven track record of helping students to achieve significant gains, resulting in improved self-esteem and academic confidence. While teaching in public school, my students in small groups (1-4 students) achieved an average increase of 2.8 grade levels in math, in one academic year.

I’d love to help your child become more-successful.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I'm a former teacher of grades K-8. I taught Language Arts (reading, writing, and English) to grades 6th through 8th. I also taught all subjects to grade 6. My particular focus in teaching math was to help students who had been performing below grade level develop an understanding of math and increase their self-confidence.

I also served on curriculum committees at the school and district-wide levels. Prior to that, I taught Title One math to students in grades K-6. I helped students achieve an average gain of 2.8 years in one year of modified instruction.
