About Barry

I have been teaching and tutoring English, writing and reading skills for over 35 years to elementary middle, high school and college students. My students come from a wide range of backgrounds and skill levels. Their learning needs may differ but they share the common goal of wanting to succeed and they are willing to devote the time and effort to achieve this goal.

I feel passionate about tutoring because it is extremely gratifying to know that I am making a positive difference in a student's life. There are very few occupations as rewarding as teaching and I feel my life is more meaningful and satisfying due to my work with students.

I have a Master's Degree in Reading and Learning Disabilities. I am also New York State certified in reading and learning disabilities. I also have NYS certification to teach social studies grades
7-12. This, combined with years of experience teaching and tutoring reading and writing skills at all levels, makes me highly qualified.

I am extremely organized and take my work very seriously. Students will find me very positive, devoted and enthusiastic. I accept my students as who they are and help them set clear and measurable goals. My years of experience allow me to serve as both tutor and mentor.
Please contact me to learn more and schedule an online appointment.
