Math and Algebra Tutor with 30+ years experience

I have been teaching basic math through Intermediate Algebra for 30+ years. I have become acquainted with the new school curriculum and am comfortable teaching Secondary 1, 2, and 3. I have taught Math in Junior High, High School, College and Sylvan Learning Center. I love to help students understand why a problem requires certain steps, yet allow the student to be creative in their approach to math. Math must make sense in order for a student to remember it as a later time. Students must learn the basics in order to understand the Algebra.
At the same time, I have been involved with tutoring math students. I have tutored students in their homes, in my home, at their school, and at Sylvan Learning Center. I clarify concepts through question and answer and observe student work to identify what they know and what they need to learn. I teach using manipulatives, drawings, and charts. I will use my tutoring time to check homework, correct quizzes and tests, and work on "what if" problems, or anything else that is needed. I have puzzles and worksheets that help students work on their multiplication facts, fractions, and decimals. I will make the session fun and fulfilling.
I believe in Team-Based Learning and am willing to tutor either individuals or small groups of three or less. Let me work with your student(s) and bring their math skills up to grade level.

Worth Every Penny!
If you're looking for a highly knowledgeable and very patient tutor with a great attitude, Barbara is it. I would have never made it through my algebra classes without her help. Not only did she find ways to help me remember difficult math concepts, she continually boosted my confidence which I really needed as someone who has struggled with math her whole life. I highly recommend Barbara as a tutor for elementary students, adult students and everyone in between.Amy, 29 lessons with Barbara
Barbara is always upbeat and willing to help my kids with whatever homework or help they need. She's patient and understands how to help them individually with their concerns. She makes math fun for my younger children, and takes time and is so knowledgeable in helping my teenagers with their needs. I highly recommend Barbara!Jodie, 59 lessons with Barbara

Barbara is a great help to my son who is trying hard to understand and catch up with some back assignments. She is able to explain things in a way that is easier for him to grasp the concepts. Thank you Barbara!!Amy, 20 lessons with Barbara

Knowledgeable and very patient.
Barbara was able to work through some math with a somewhat resistant child. She engaged my daughter and helped her feel like she understood what she was doing by the end of the lesson. Great tutoring.Camilla, 1 lesson with Barbara
