Barbara tutored my daughter in her college MicroBiology course. When my daughter first went to her, she was struggling with the course and was just about passing. Having always done very well in school, my daughter was beside herself. Her first test right after the first session, she got a 90!. Barbara took the time to show her study skills, "tricks" for learning the material, and most of all the confidence she was lacking. She met with Barbara a total of 4 sessions. This being a summer course, there was quite a bit of material to cover in a short amount of time. In the end, my daughter went from a C- to a B in the course! I was so lucky to have found Barbara and highly recommend her. She is very professional, patient, understanding of the student's needs, and very proficient in her subject area. Barbara always responded quickly to any e-maiI or phone call. I will definitely use Barbara again if there is a need. To sum it up, Barbara was "awesome"

"Physics, Biology and Math"
Hello and thank you for viewing my tutoring profile! My name is Barbara and I'm a licensed high school physics teacher with 17 years of experience tutoring students, especially those who need an alternative way to learn the material. I take what the student already knows and build on it â€“ I find that this makes them feel comfortable and confident that they can learn the material. In the beginning, I take time to find the studentâ€™s optimal method of learning, whether itâ€™s by the traditional ro... ... More

"For the Love of Words"
For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with words. When I first read Coleridge's poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" in 8th grade, I fell in love with language, the manipulation of words as a means to affect an audience. Whether we manipulate language to communicate with one another or to compose a specific piece of writing, we start with words. Through words, we make our entrance into the world; through words, we chronicle our experiences, our ideas, our understanding, and som... ... More

We could not have wished for a better tutor! Thrilled is not even accurate! We know we will be speaking Spanish fluently in less time than we imagined, but hope for a long tutor-student relationship with Liz.

"Recent College Grad Looking to Give Back"
I have been helping my fellow students informally since the start of high school. After graduating from MIT I feel like I can continue to assist others with a desire to learn and excel. I understand that some, if not many, students benefit greatly from a more one-on-one learning approach and I look forward to passing on my knowledge and the study skills I have learned to the next generation.... ...
