About Barbara

Hello and thank you for viewing my tutoring profile! My name is Barbara and I'm a licensed high school physics teacher with 17 years of experience tutoring students, especially those who need an alternative way to learn the material. I take what the student already knows and build on it – I find that this makes them feel comfortable and confident that they can learn the material. In the beginning, I take time to find the student’s optimal method of learning, whether it’s by the traditional route of reading the material or if he or she can learn better through auditory, visual, logical, tangible or even mathematical methods. The student will understand the material on a highly intellectual level and feel great about his or herself.

*Please note that my fee is for high school college prep level classes. Honors-level classes are billed at $75.00/hr, as are first year college classes. Higher-level Calculus, Physics, and Organic Chemistry classes are billed at $100.00/hr.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Praxis

I've personally taken two different Praxis tests - one for general science and one for physics. These were a requirement for getting my NJ Physics teacher certification. The general science test was a comprehensive test that covered biology, chemistry and physics. The physics test covered all of the concepts covered in first year calculus-based physics. I passed both tests on the first try, which is particularly significant for the physics test, as it has a very high failure rate. I also have experience tutoring the Praxis test successfully.
