About this tutor

I started my working life in customer service for hospitality and travel. I learned a lot about how people react, how they think, what their needs are. My sister has been an elementary teacher for over 30 years and she always told me that I would be a great teacher. I moved to New York and started teaching. She was right. I love children. I love how they think and speak and work so hard. I always want them to feel safe and comfortable.

Every child is so different, so every session is different! I love to be creative, to make the children have fun but still learn. I love being artistic and giving them positive feedback. If there is ever a problem, I like to get it solved and move on. I honestly feel that it is a gift to be able to work with children. I want them to meet their goals and go even further!

    Barbara is amazing. So kind and patient with the kids. Also her education style is that of teaching via art projects, singing, stories, etc. HIGHLY recommend.

    Ms. Barbara Zats is an exceptional teacher. She is so dedicated and passionate about teaching and it shows while she is working with the children. She makes learning fun and my child could not wait to go to school. Her patience and love for the children is second to none. I would highly recommend her for any teaching position.

FAQs


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

I introduce myself, tell the student a bit about myself, and I ask the student about themselves, in terms of what they like to do in their spare time, if they have siblings, pets, what their favorite subjects are in school, what they would like to learn to accomplish better work. I want to make the students feel comfortable and safe, and to know that I will work with them in a fair and understanding way.


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

I have a B.A. in Speech from the University of MN. I am also certified in TESOL and TEFL. I have over 8 years of experience in Education.I have worked online and in classrooms with students ages 2-15 years. I have also been a substitute teacher when needed. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The usual charge is between $12.00-25.00, depending on the length of the session and the needs of the student. 


How did you get started teaching?

My sister has been a teacher for a long time and she has always loved it. I had been in customer service, and loved working with people in general. After I had my daughter, I volunteered at non-profit organizations helping children in different teaching environments. That is how I discovered how much fun it is to teach! 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students ages 2-15 years, of all different learning styles.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was working online with a small class, and I turned the lesson into a fun learning experience, with music and crafts. At the end of the lesson, all of the students answered questions about the topic, and they each got 100 percent of the answers correct! Plus, they had so much fun while they were learning!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

It is most important that the student feel comfortable with the teacher. They should read the reviews, make sure the teacher knows what the students needs are, and also, to see if their personalities are a good fit, 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

They should figure out what they are trying to accomplish. This way the teacher can better help the student achieve.
