Barbara has taught Spanish professionally. She knows where students get hung up and confused and is able to teach these concepts. She shares additional handouts where appropriate to teach ideas not well explained in class or in the book. Because m son has a terrible Spanish teacher in high school, she is essentially teaching him the whole subject from scratch. He finally gets what is going on! She has good rapport with my teenage son and uses positive reinforcement. My son is doing very well with her help and feels much better about school and himself. I highly recommend Barbara!
Thank you Carrie!! It has been a joy to see how your son has improved. He is a wonderful student ' I am so glad that he has gain confidence .
It is a true pleasure to help students succeed. So often confusion about a topic is not the student's fault and all it take is clarification . As a certified Teacher I love making a positive impact in a student's life. I have taught Spanish for so many years I can easily recognize areas where students need extra clarification and help provide tools to improve understanding. Spanish is a wonderful language; learning it can be a joy as well as a lifetime skill .
My daughter has been particularly impressed by how well Barbara has been able to understand her, as a learner. She has also been quick to determine both the gaps in my daughter's Spanish 3 knowledge, and the particular steps that will take her to the level of mastery required for success in Spanish 4. Thanks Barbara!
Barbara was very positive and had several helpful ideas to get our tutoring started for my seventh grade daughter with ADHD. Looking forward to working with her!
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.
