Our daughter was having a hard time grasping the school taught phonics based reading program. We decided to go the tutoring route outside of the school program. We found wyzant on the internet and searched thru a bunch of profiles. Most tutors say they can tutor in reading but we were looking for a tutor that had experience in tutoring students with learning disabilities. We found barb L. and contacted her about our daughter. She responded right away and answered all of our questions. Barb was able to get her setup with tutoring sessions right away. Our daughter has now had several weeks of tutoring sessions and we can honestly say we have seen a big improvement in our daughters reading skills and also her desire to be a better reader. Barb has given us the tools to be better helpers at home. It used to be a struggle to try and practice with her at home but now she is excited to study everyday. We like the fact that we can sit in on the tutoring sessions if we choose. Barb is also very patient tutor and obviously has a lot of experience as a tutor. We would highly recommend Barb to any family that has a struggling reader like us!

"Anyone can learn to read--and to read well."
My specialty area is working with kids with learning disabilities. However, when I work with some of my kids with learning issues, they also need help with tutoring specific subjects. Algebra 1 is one of the subjects that my clients have wanted me to teach. Algebra is my favorite subject and although I am not a math teacher, I have a lot of fun tutoring Algebra and the kids I work with seem to really enjoy it too after working with me for a few weeks. I'd love to work with your Algebra 1 student, too. ... More
"I have a love and passion for teaching, especially tutoring. "
While teaching online classes through Central AZ College, I discovered a love of teaching. I love tutoring because it gives me a chance to work with students on a one to one basis and focus on "issues" they may have. I have an understanding of the many students today who face the special challenges of being "visual" and "hands on" learners. Things must move so fast in the general education environment that it is easy to get behind or confused. I think one of the most important things lear... ... More

I just had a lesson by John with my E-10 Olympic camera and found him to be very patient and fun to work with. I learned so much from him and now feel I will be able to go out and use my camera with confidence. I appreciated all John's help and feel he would be an excellent choice as a teacher. I would recommend him to anyone.
