I have a bachelor's degree and PhD in Chemical Engineering and held a teaching license for high school chemistry and physics. I have tutored students in math and science from 4th grade through adults. I've taught high school chemistry, physics, physical science, and electricity. I've also taught college courses in engineering and math. In addition to teaching, I have worked as a chemical engineer in product and process development, in the food industry and with chemical processing.

Barbara has brought him up to date in his school work. He turned on all his work, and he feels good about his progress. He has informed me that he understands pre-algebra, and feels like he will be okay in algebra. However, he feels like he should have another 6 weeks with Barbara to feel more secure.

Barbara helps my daughter with Algebra 1. She knows the material but more importantly she knows how to teach it, patiently and step-by-step. We are lucky to have found Barbara.

Barbara's experience shows. She tutors both my daughters and can adapt to each individuals style of learning. I have one daughter with high functioning autism and Barbara has a gift at getting the info across to her ! She is easy to relate to and the girls like seeing her . We will continue using her as my oldest is a sophomore and a lot of her classes junior and senior year Barbara is knowledgeable. We plan to start ACT tutoring with her too. I definitely would recommend her !

Barbara has helped my son a great deal with his Algebra 3 class. Thank you for everything you have done.

Barb put in a very long day to meet w/ my daughter the night before a test. She could've easily declined due to a hectic schedule but made time later in the evening. This meant a lot. Barb is very effective and very no-nonsense. We have had some tutor "drama" in the past and appreciate her professionalism. We are getting good results as well.

My 17 year old son has struggled with Algebra and math in general for some time. At first, he wasn't thrilled when I told him I'd hired a tutor, but now he enjoys his time with Barbara. He really appreciates that she takes the time to explain the problems and will do it several different ways if he doesn't understand. She's a no nonsense person who gets down to business and my son's words were, "I really like her a lot, she doesn't talk down to me or get frustrated with me if I don't get it." His face actually lights up when I ask him about math because he's finally starting to make some headway! Thanks Barbara!!

Barbara is a wonderful tutor. She helps you with understanding concepts, and by not doing the homework for you. She is very patient, and is very easy to reach. I would recommend her for physics especially. She is great to work with!

I am a college student who desperately needed help in calculus based physics I & II. After contacting her, we were able to meet less than five miles away from my house to begin our tutoring session, this was very convenient! Barb was able to clearly and concisely present the material in a way that made complete sense. She would even bring in props to help me better understand the certain properties of physics. If you need help with physics...this is the tutor you want and need!

My daughter found Barbara very smart and helpful! Barbara helped her figure out that she really understood more in Algebra II than she thought she did. She got a very GOOD grade on the math test she took following her tutor session!! We will definitely use her again!

I had a tough project that two other "excel experts" were not able to accomplish but Barb figured it out. She was professional, focused and determined. Thank you Barb!

Barbara tutored my son for his ACT and he brought it up 6 points. It was awesome. She did a great job!

Barb has been very good with me during my lessons. She is patient and knows how to help me. She compliments me on what I know and works hard to help me understand. She treats me with respect and encourages me to do my very best. Tutoring with Barb is an awesome experience for me!
