I have been fortunate enough to grow up speaking different languages. I have studied in Spain, in Salamanca and in Firenze, Italy. I travelled and lived in Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico and Italy. For the past 18 years I have lived in the USA where I have worked as a translator, teacher and travel organizer. I tutored students of different ages: from young children, High School students and also adults that need to learn another language while relocating overseas or want either pass Goethe Insti...
My daughters are learning so much! The variety of exercises and activities is very helpful. They are challenged and having fun. Thank you Barbara.

I had a great experience with Barbara in the few months I had with her. She is a native speaker and is also fluent in Spanish so she is attuned to effective language learning. Lessons with her were always a pleasure, as she is very personable and patient, which is necessary when working with complete beginners like I was. I highly recommend her to anyone who?s just starting out in German! Lucienne

My son needed extra help with Spanish 2. Barbara is a very patient and understanding, knowledgeable and does an excellent job explaining concepts and adapting the session to my son's needs. I highly recommend Barbara as a tutor.

This is my first introduction to German. I live in Germany part of the year and am taking an immersion class so that I can speak to My neighbors and shopkeepers, etc. I am confident I will meet my goals with Barbara.

Ms. Barbara is phenomenal! She arrived on time, very professional, very kind and respectful, and is extremely well versed in the Spanish language. Not only did she thoroughly help me understand and practice several key spanish concepts, but she also helped me to feel much more encouraged and confident about the class! 5/5, would recommend to anyone!

I really enjoyed our first tutor session because it helped me make sense of something that I didn't understand and couldn't figure out how to properly complete my homework. Thanks for helping me understand it better so I could finish the assignment!

Barbara has been working with my daughter (Spanish III) since the beginning of the 2015-16 school year. My daughter finds Barbara's academic support tremendously helpful and effective. As importantly, my daughter truly enjoys her sessions with Barbara. She describes Barbara as extremely supportive and understanding. All in all, we highly recommend Barbara as a tutor and mentor.

Barbara did reading and translating paragraphs this week, a good way to help with vocabulary words and with "new" words by providing them in a context rather than just as a vocabulary list.
- Fallon F. from Bellevue, WA
Barbara is a fantastic teacher! I had my first lesson with her this past week. I was looking for someone who would help me immerse in the German language. Barbara is skilled at making German easy to follow, while still being fun!

I have a large team in my business that is in Spain, and wanted to learn Spanish. I knew I couldn't do it on my own and needed a tutor. I was fortunate to find Barbara. She has made the learning process fun, and has helped me a lot in only several months. Every session has built on the one before it and is very well planned and I love her handouts that allow me to practice and study on my own. I began with trepidation and doubt whether I could even learn a foreign language, but Barbara has made me believe that I can do it. I plan on continuing my lessons with her until the day I can speak fluently. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone! I think I will impress my Spanish team with my progress when I travel to Barcelona in a month!

Barbara has a great personality. She is reliable and flexible with her schedule to meet our tutoring needs. She understood immediately what my 15 year old needed to grasp in order to maintain passing grades in Spanish. She knows how to engage my son - passing on her knowledge and helping him retain the information. She always checks in during the week to ensure the date of his lesson is confirmed and inquires what topics they are covering in school that week to make sure she is prepared for his lesson. We appreciate everything she has done and we enjoy working with her.

I cannot imagine a better tutor than Barbara. She is a pleasure to work with, patient and has an extensive knowledge of the German language and the German culture. She has the ability to teach in accordance with my learning style and makes it each class energetic and fun.
- Albert W. from Alpharetta, GA
Learning from Barbara is fun and stress-free. She is so sweet and patient. Barbara is a native speaker of German so over time it's easy to get a feel for the genuine pronunciation and inflections. I also feel like I've learned a lot about German culture through our lessons. Her teaching style is less "textbook" and more natural - vocabulary and grammatical concepts are introduced as part of a topic (family, food, travel, shopping, etc) and most of our time is spent in practice conversations. I started with no prior knowledge of the language and this has been very effective for me!
