About Barbara

As a high school teacher and private tutor for over 25 years, I have the experience and skills it takes to help students of all academic levels and abilities achieve success. The part of my job that I like the most is interacting with students individually and developing a relationship. I believe that students need to feel confident and comfortable knowing that I am able to help them achieve their goals along with their help. I place great value on a student's needs and learning style knowing that each person is different requiring a unique and individualized approach.
Some of the services I provide include speaking and writing practice, vocabulary and grammar instruction and practice, pronunciation and listening activities, as well as computer based activities providing immediate feedback. I can say without reservation that the students I work with improve their skills and learn valuable learning strategies which can help them become better independent learners.



I have a Masters Degree in Spanish literature and have spent time studying in Spain. I have been teaching AP Spanish for 9 years and have taught all levels of Spanish in high school and also first and second year of college Spanish.

I normally tutor out of my home after school or evenings ( I am still a high school teacher), however I will consider meeting at a library or coffee shop at a mutually convenient location.
Although I require a 24 hour notice for cancellation, on occasion I may be able to reschedule a make up session.

First tutoring session — Barbara was very patient and helpful with the topic and understanding my reluctant teenage son! She gave him some good pointers to help with upcoming quiz/tests as well as information about the material to remember going forward. ...
