Bio

I have been fortunate enough to grow up speaking different languages. I have studied in Spain, in Salamanca and in Firenze, Italy. I travelled and lived in Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico and Italy. For the past 18 years I have lived in the USA where I have worked as a translator, teacher and travel organizer.

I have been fortunate enough to grow up speaking different languages. I have studied in Spain, in Salamanca and in Firenze, Italy. I travelled and lived in Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico and Italy. For the past 18 years I have lived in the USA where I have worked as a translator, teacher and travel organizer. I tutored students of different ages: from young children, High School students and also adults that need to learn another language while relocating overseas or want either pass Goethe Institute exam or just learn the simple communication phrases when going on vacation. Teaching languages is my passion, my lessons are vibrant, energetic, filled with conversations and I make sure I will make you talk very quickly. I am very efficient and I make it fun for you. Because of my extensive traveling, I also have the knowledge not only of the language, but also the culture, history, food and all additional aspects that you will learn. Learning the language goes along with the other cultural aspects. German is my native language, but my Spanish and Italian are excellent. I lived and studied in Spain, in the city of Salamanca where you learn the best Spanish - Castellano.And later I lived in Firenze enjoying the beautiful landscapes of Toscany. I love what I do and I have fun teaching languages. I am good with people, I adapt very quickly to everybody's level and I know everybody is different. I guarantee you, you will learn to speak German, Spanish or Italian quickly and you won't be bored. Barbara

(five stars) Wunderbar Privatlehrerin!

I had a great experience with Barbara in the few months I had with her. She is a native speaker and is also fluent in Spanish so she is attuned to effective language learning. Lessons with her were always a pleasure, as she is very personable and patient, which is necessary when working with complete beginners like I was. I highly recommend her to anyone who’s just starting out in German! Lucienne

Knowledgeable and fun!

This is my first introduction to German. I live in Germany part of the year and am taking an immersion class so that I can speak to My neighbors and shopkeepers, etc. I am confident I will meet my goals with Barbara.

Fantastic!

Ms. Barbara is phenomenal! She arrived on time, very professional, very kind and respectful, and is extremely well versed in the Spanish language. Not only did she thoroughly help me understand and practice several key spanish concepts, but she also helped me to feel much more encouraged and confident about the class! 5/5, would recommend to anyone!

Great first session!

I really enjoyed our first tutor session because it helped me make sense of something that I didn't understand and couldn't figure out how to properly complete my homework. Thanks for helping me understand it better so I could finish the assignment!

Helpful and effective

Barbara has been working with my daughter (Spanish III) since the beginning of the 2015-16 school year. My daughter finds Barbara's academic support tremendously helpful and effective. As importantly, my daughter truly enjoys her sessions with Barbara. She describes Barbara as extremely supportive and understanding. All in all, we highly recommend Barbara as a tutor and mentor.

Melissa, 45 lessons with Barbara

added a new way to help learn vocab words

Barbara did reading and translating paragraphs this week, a good way to help with vocabulary words and with "new" words by providing them in a context rather than just as a vocabulary list.
