"Language Tutor - English and Greek"
With what the Germans call Sprachgefuehl (feel for language), I have an intuitive grasp of the grammar and structure of English. I can tell if something doesn't sound right when I am listening to the English language. Like a musician with music, I hear all the mistakes. When I am writing, the grammar and spelling come easily, and, as with spoken English, I quickly spot printed mistakes. I am quite a good proofreader. I am not an expert in English lit, but I am very good at grammar and spellin... ... More

Barbara was the best thing that we could have done for our son. When I was looking for a tutor for our third grader, I saw Barbara's profile and knew that she was the right tutor to bring confidence and pride back to his math skills. Barbara came prepared to his first session and worked patiently with him to get through his fractions and help him succeed where he felt he was failing. Our son made an A on his next test and even asks for Barbara to come back and help him get through word problems. Her calm voice and gently demeanor just puts your child at ease where the learning environment is easy and positive. We have a lot to thank Barbara for, our son is happy, excited about math again and most importantly not scared. Thank you doing such a great job!!!!!
