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.

I loved her systemic approach to tutoring my kids. I just hate the fact that it we both had to drive far to meet in the middle. Still looking for a conveniently located tutor that is near her level of expertise.
