“Tutor Barbara is an excellent tutor. She is calm, attentive, helps in correcting the pronunciation. She is super interested in guiding me to drive correctly–at 46, I am getting my first driver’s license. She does an excellent job helping me to raise my level in English. I recommend her.”
Amy, 9 years old
from China
“Barbara is a wonderful teacher! I like to talk with her, and I especially like it when she guides my writing! She helped me write about my wonderful, new toy.”
from Finland
“This was the best class I’ve ever had. I was very depressed when I went to Teacher Barb’s class. By the end of the class, I felt very calm and peaceful. I knew that I had improved my English and would continue to improve.”
from Italy
“Teacher Barb is an excellent teacher. She is very easy to talk with. She politely pushes me to talk, to take part in the conversation. Our conversations are always useful and pleasant. She has a vast knowledge of many subjects and willingly shares what she knows.”
