My son loves his afternoon tutoring. She makes learning fun for him and he is always ready to sign on and get started. His reading has improved so much that his grades have even improved at school. Ms. Barbara is a joy and a big help to my sons education.

She is great in finding area that needs improvement and working with kids on them. Easy with kids, but redirects them to focus when needed.

We are very grateful for many years to have a tutor like Ms Barbara for our 9 year old son. He is consistently doing an hour a day most days and performing at or above his grade level. Our son hasn’t had to enter into a school building yet and it’s heavily because of her methods and experience. She provides a great value for her rate and I wouldn’t want anyone else schooling our son. My son doesn’t dread school time with her as she helps your child to be excited to learn. She is amazing and I extremely recommend Ms Barbara to take any child to the next level and possibly out of the mainstream school system entirely. Sincerely, Violette Family

We absolutely fell in love with Ms. Barb from the start. My daughter can be quite a handful and standoffish to strangers, yet took to her like a family friend she knew for years. It was very difficult to get her to even try reading anything and from day one Ms. Barb had found a crack in the door. We would have kept going for years but unrelated circumstances had us end the tutoring. I recommend her to everyone though.

Details: Elementary school • Reading comprehension • General reading and writing • Native speaker • Improve grades at school • As recommended by professional • 45 minutes • I travel to the reading and writing tutor • The reading and writing tutor travels to me
