About this tutor

I have a proven track record of turning students into high achievers. I am passionate about making a difference. I have been tutoring for 15 years, have a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree, and excel in analyzing the difficulty that a student is experiencing and devising ways around it. I am very result-oriented.

I really enjoy working with children and young adults. I love the expressions on their faces when they overcome their difficulties and do well. I enjoy the challenge of changing a student's mind about a subject and feel satisfied when the student develops confidence and poise in handling a subject that was difficult for him. I enjoy pleasing their parents with outstanding test results and grades.

    Liz Ramsey - N. Y.We hired Barbara to prepare our son for the upper level ISEE, math. He has difficulty and gaps in his math education. Barbara quickly pinpointed them and resolved everything. His score rose 60% with a few months with Barbara. We highly recommend that you consult Barbara. You would be very fortunate to have her as your tutor. She responds quickly, communicates very clearly, and is always on time.

  • Brian Nardone

    My 4th grader needed gifted math and English work and my 2nd grader needed remedial math and English work. I hired Barbara. My son went up 2 grade levels in reading and 2 in Math working with her for 3 months. My daughter is now 1 year above grade level in math and 2 years above grade level in reading, and the special ed folks at school couldn't accomplish this. Dealing with Barbara has been joyous.

  • Angelique Flaherty

    I hired Barbara to supplement my daughter's education in pubic school. Barbara taught her science, math, English, grammar, writing, Spanish, social studies for 9 hours per week. My daughters math levels increase by 2 years in 12 weeks and her writing skills because terrific. Her reading comprehension went up 2 grades. I was thrilled with the experience of working with Barbara

  • Liesel Steinmann

    While homeschooling my children, I hired Barbara to teach math, science, STEM, social studies, Spanish, and English. They were behind and she brought them up to grade level and beyond in 8 weeks. I wholeheartedly recommend Barbara for your tutoring needs.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I ask the student which topic in the subject he or she is having trouble with. I then give the student a problem or question on that topic and ask that he or she solve the problem or answer it and show me, or describe to me, the step-by-step work. I then evaluate and address the problems.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Bachelor's and Master's degrees and 15 years of proven, effective experience with excellent references.
