CARLA BARRY

Carla Barry, a University of Miami graduate, has worked in the test preparation industry for the last decade. She believes that all students are capable of scoring well on the SAT or ACT when they receive the proper instruction and put forth effort outside of the classroom to reinforce new concepts and strategies. Carla devotes her time and resources to identify the best methods for standardized test preparation so that she can assist her students in becoming expert test-takers. By integrating critical thinking techniques into concept-based instruction, Carla teaches students easily understandable strategies to break-down wordy and complicated SAT and ACT questions. She enjoys sharing her knowledge to help students achieve their best possible scores, often leading many into the 99th percentile and procuring Bright Futures scholarships. Nothing brings Carla more joy than helping students to achieve their full potential on the SAT or ACT so that they may submit college applications with pride and confidence. 

Carla Barry also has extensive experience mentoring students as they complete their high school journeys and apply to competitive universities. From assisting with completing forms correctly to giving useful content and precise grammatical feedback on personal statements, she guides students through the daunting process of college applications. With her expert advice, Carla’s students have been accepted into Ivy League schools, seven-year special interest/accelerated programs, and every university in the state of Florida. Carla works privately with a select number of candidates during each college application cycle; however, she also periodically offers her knowledge and skills to a wider group of students in the Tampa Bay Area at the Safety Harbor Public Library so they can thrive during the first stage of their odyssey into becoming adults and learn the best tips available to successfully navigate the tumultuous waters of the college admissions process.

"Excellent tutor. I took an advanced SAT class with her, and instead of counting the questions that I could have gotten right, I started counting the ones that might have possibly been wrong. My SAT jumped 300 points, which is pretty decent when you're starting at a good place already. Carla was very professional and I partly attribute my admissions (and subsequent career) success to her thoughtful guidance.​"

"Carla was an excellent and highly qualified SAT and ACT prep tutor of mine. She helped bring my original SAT score up by at least 300 points.... I was referred to Carla from a friend who also had outstanding score improvements from her SAT and ACT testing. I couldn't imagine a better or more qualified tutor than her and I'd hire her again in a heartbeat."

Carla has been tutoring my two daughters for years now. She is not only highly competent and capable in any field she tackles, but she also has an uncanny ability to discern what exactly a child needs to do in order to help her achieve. Carla is incredibly intelligent and she has a kind soul that my children connect with. She is always patient and knows that each one of my girls has different needs and she adapts her tutoring accordingly. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this young lady. She is always on time, she is trustworthy and gentle and amazingly in tune with each one of my children. I recommended her to several of my friends and they are all very happy. They always give her rave reviews. Carla is a gifted teacher and you would be most lucky if she tutors you or your child.
