About Barbara


Bio

I admit it: as a published author and an English teacher, I'd rather be reading and writing than doing just about anything else. But don't let that scare you. Reading and writing well aren't skills just for geeks like me. Whether you hope to be an astronaut, a stockbroker, or an entrepreneur, strong reading and writing skills will help you achieve your goals. I love working with students to show them how being a more adept reader and writer will ultimately make them a better math or science ...

I admit it: as a published author and an English teacher, I'd rather be reading and writing than doing just about anything else. But don't let that scare you. Reading and writing well aren't skills just for geeks like me. Whether you hope to be an astronaut, a stockbroker, or an entrepreneur, strong reading and writing skills will help you achieve your goals. I love working with students to show them how being a more adept reader and writer will ultimately make them a better math or science student, too.

I have taught English at a mid-sized suburban high school for over ten years. During that time, I have taught all grade levels at the high school, including courses such as SAT Prep, Creative Writing, and AP Language and Composition. In addition, I am also the chairperson of the English Dept., grades 7-12. I am well-versed in all aspects of the new Common Core State Standards and the updated SAT.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you meet your goals.

Great Tutor

Excellent tutor we were extremely satisfied with her ability to teach SAT prep. Knowledgeable and caring, she communicates very well and I would highly recommend her.

Knowledgeable and Prepared

Barbara has been tutoring my 2 sons (6th and 11th grades) in reading this summer. She's extremely knowledgeable and always prepared. I am very pleased with the job she's doing and will continue the lessons during the school year.
