About Barbara

I am a graduate of Dartmouth College and Cornell University, who has spent most of the last 15 years in business and would like to get into teaching. I have worked as a substitute teacher in New Hampshire Public Schools and also taught computer applications to state employees as an instructor for a local community college.

I particularly enjoy teaching languages, and developed my own curriculum for teaching my two nephews Spanish starting at ages 3 and 4, respectively.

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.
