Barbara Gersh provides Private Tutoring at Home for Students K-5
After retiring from teaching after forty two years, I found myself missing the children so much that I decided to reach out to students in grades k-5 to renew my passion. I began my career in NYC teaching exceptionally talented and gifted students in grades K- 5. After thirty years I decided to retire to pursue my other passions. Within two months, I was offered a position at Old Greenwich Elementary School teaching fourth grade. I never expected to stay for twelve years but enjoyed the children and community so much, I couldn’t leave. After retiring, I decided to reach out to the community to help students achieve their goals and began individual tutoring. During the pandemic,I worked virtually with a few students and provided them with a full year of appropriate lessons to keep them on grade level. Many of them returned to school the following year significantly ahead of their classmates. I continue to tutor young children in grades K-4 to this day. They bring me joy and very often we become life long friends. I will also provide you with references from local greenwich parents and my previous supervisors, who still work in the Greenwich schools. I look forward to meeting new families every year and still keep in touch with my previous students and families to this day. – Barbara Gersh
