My name is Barbara and I may be the ideal tutor for you!
I am happy to be a new member of Wyzant. I recently obtained my CELTA Certification(Cambridge Certificate of English Language to Adults), the Gold Standard of accreditation.
The course provided me with experience teaching actual adult students learning English as a second language. I have also been a teacher for the past 30 years in the tap dance world, traveling to 20 countries. I have coached many of my dance students in ESL over these years, because I've always enjoyed languages and of course, teaching. I am proud to now be officially certified!
I'm available to tutor students in grammar, reading, writing, vocabulary and pronunciation. My specialty is pronunciation. Having a musical background, I have a keen ear and a unique talent for drilling sounds, words and phrases.
I believe in a student centered style of teaching, where you, the student is actively involved in the learning process. It is a proven method to successfully achieve your goals.
My lessons are engaging, fun and of course productive. I am enthusiastic, encouraging and always sensitive to the needs of my students.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
