When I first met Barbara, I knew immediately that she would be a great teacher for my son. She seems to exude positive energy, and her passion for educating the whole child is readily apparent. I have been amazed at the progress my son has made this year. In no subject is this more evident than in reading. Barbara’s enthusiasm as a lover of literature has been contagious for him, increasing both his skill level and his willingness to seek out new books and authors. In addition, Barbara has fostered the personal skills and qualities that each child needs to develop: inquisitiveness, concern for others, taking care of one’s neighborhood, and presenting oneself effectively.
