My son is going into his third year of college. He took a semester off from Spanish since he was studying abroad. He wanted to review the material since he will need to take another two semesters of Spanish. Barbara listened to his needs and got right to work. They accomplished a lot in one session. Looking forward to the next one!
Barbara is helping my son for few months now and I have noticed a significant improvement in my son's Spanish ability. My son did not know much Spanish coming into freshman year and within few months he can speak and write Spanish. He is getting excellent grades in Spanish honors. Barbara's patience and her tutoring has helped my son to an extent that he is looking to take Spanish AP. I am convinced that Barbara will be a great tutor for anyone who wants to learn and excel at Spanish.
Ms. Barbara is an amazing tutor. She is very patient and understanding. Kudos to her, learning Spanish became easy and a lot more interesting.
Thank you Ankita, I enjoy working with you!
Barbara came very well prepared with handouts which she used to teach the alphabets, numbers from zero to ten and the colors. The children enjoyed the lesson and are looking forward to the next one.
Thank you Anupurba.
The girls are a pleasure to work with and I look forward to further lessons with them.
Barbara and my son Sam hit it off well from the start. Sam enjoyed his Spanish lesson and looks forward to working more with Barbara.
Thank you John, I enjoy helping your son review for his Spanish 2 class next year. He is a very nice boy.
Barbara is a very warm, approachable, friendly tutor. My daughter felt comfortable with Barbara straight away.
Barbara was able to help my daughter understand all the work she was having trouble with quickly and easily. She explained all the work they had done on each visit. We will definitely be asking Barbara back if we should need her help again.
Thank you Treena. It was a pleasure to help your daughter.
Barbara is an excellent tutor! My daughter was struggling in her freshmen Spanish class, and Barbara has helped her understand more than her classroom teacher! She is patient, thorough, and she is always in contact to see how a quiz or test has turned out. Without reservation I would recommend Barbara as a tutor.
Thank you Nadia
It was a pleasure tutoring your daughter
Barbara provided tutoring for Spanish over the summer at a college level. She was very thorough, patient, knowledgeable, and my student loved working with Barbara. Barbara was flexible in scheduling and very responsive to my student's needs. Her expertise in Spanish combined with her experience as a teacher and mentor was invaluable! My student feels very prepared for the upcoming school year. Thank you Barbara!!
Thank you, Florette! I wish her the best success in all her studies!
Brought my son's grade up from failing to an 82. Excellent! He said she taught him more through tutoring than he's learned in the entire year at school.
Thank you Jane and Colin. I hope Colin has a good school year in Spanish class.
Barbara was extremely accommodating of my schedule and needs, providing lessons tailor-made to my preferences. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to improve their Spanish skills, in or outside the classroom.
Thank you Joe - it was a pleasure to work with you!
Barbara is an AMAZING Tutor and a wonderful person! We met Barbara in early September when my daughter realized that Spanish 3 was going to be a struggle. She ended up with a solid B for the year! We couldn't be happier. Barbara worked around my daughter's schedule and was always available. I was also extremely happy with the WyzAnt process which I was a little nervous about. Thank you!
Thank you, Lisa and Kayla. I'm so happy Kayla did well in the Spanish class.
Barbara is a great tutor. She helped my eighth grade daughter in Spanish when my daughter was struggling in school. She helped my daughter to improve her grades and I will highly recommend her.
Thank you Sangiv. I'm glad your daughter did well in the Spanish class. I hope everyone enjoys the summer!
My daughter tells me on a Wednesday afternoon she needs a Spanish tutor for Friday's test. With not much time to find one, I Googled Spanish Tutors in Freehold area. A website came up, and WyzAnt
gave me info on tutors and their qualifications etc. I immediately emailed a hand full with what I needed: Immediate service for the following day!
I was not feeling very hopeful but was delighted to hear from Barbara R that same night. We made an agreeable time & place for the following day. (Yes you must register a credit or debit
card with the WyzAnt tutoring site before final time & place discussed. This was totally secure and was the same card that the tutoring session was charged too. No cash exchanged hands at tutoring session.)
Long story short, my daughter used Barbara for 100 minutes (just charged for the time she tutors), and I sat in the same room and observed everything. My daughter got a 92 on her Spanish test. We were thrilled!
Thank you so much Barbara R for your fast response and GREAT Help!!!
Thank you Linda and Nicole. I'm glad I could help Nicole and I'm happy she got an excellent grade on her test.
My son has been struggling with Spanish this year and his self confidence was lagging. In just one visit with Barb, she was able to identify the areas he needed help in and begin correcting the issues. And even more impressively, his confidence in his ability to do well in Spanish is now very high. Barb is pleasant, enthusiastic and encouraging. I highly recommend her.
My son was struggling with Spanish 3 and we requested Barbara to help him. In just few sitting his grades in the subject started to improve now. She will definitely continue to help him in improving his grade this year. Thanks Barbara.
My daughter took private lessons from Barbara in preparation for traveling abroad in Spain in the Fall semester. My daughter has studied French and Italian, but never Spanish. In just a handful of lessons, Barbara was able to teach my daughter the essentials that she will need to make her way around Spain. This included greetings and introduction, vocab related to traveling and eating at restaurants, basic verbs, etc. Barbara is an excellent tutor. She is very knowledgeable, patient, down to earth, and readily tailored her lessons for my daughter’s needs. Barbara even provided her with traveling tips and Spanish learning materials (books, pamphlets, notecards). I would highly recommend Barbara as a Spanish tutor.
Barbara is an amazing tutor and is extremely helpful. She has taught Spanish for many years, and she is excellent at what she does. Barbara is a huge help on the homework, that prepares me for tests/quizzes. She helps go over all the areas, and material I am having difficulty with. Every week I am progressing and becoming stronger in those areas. I am doing extremely well on tests and quizzes thanks to Barbara's help. I would recommend her to anyone that is struggling in the subject. Barbara is a huge help and is helping me excel in Spanish.
Barbara has been a great help to me in studying and preparing for my Spanish 1 course. She has made herself available to me with any free time that she has. She has been very helpful in building my confidence to get through Spanish.
Barbara does an awesome job as a Spanish Tutor. She is very kind, compassionate and willing to accommodate my son's busy life to find the time to tutor him. He feels much more confident and I think he will be able to pass the Spanish class. Thanks so much for having Barbara with your service and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for help with Spanish. Thanks so much!!!
Barbara is a great Spanish teacher, and a very kind and down to earth person. My grandson who is in the eighth grade had been struggling with Spanish, and was feeling quite upset and discouraged. I am so glad we found Barbara through WyzAnt! From the first lesson she was so very helpful, encouraging, and patient. She goes above and beyond bringing additional materials for him to work with from the curriculum she knows so well. The manner in which she teaches has totally changed his attitude to one of "I can do this and I can do it well!"
I recommend Barbara without any reservation. She is truly wonderful, and my thirteen year old grandson thinks she is "cool", and looks forward to her help.
Barbara is a great teacher, she is very knowledgeable and really cares about her students success. Since our first lesson Barbara made my son feel comfortable and provided him with the proper guidance towards accomplishing his goals.
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.
I've been a New Jersey certified Spanish teacher for 15 years. I have experience with at risk students and K-12 experience. I am Spanish 1 through Spanish AP qualified.
