About Barry

I truly enjoy applied Linguistics. I have many years of experience teaching and tutoring English as a Second Language and Spanish as a Second Language around the world. When mentoring a student I seek to identify his or her unique learning style and adapt lesson plans to better address individual needs.

I have an M.A. in TESL and a Teaching Certificate in TESL. I have 7 years of experience teaching vocabulary, reading/writing, grammar, listening/speaking, pronunciation.

I lived, worked and studied for 5 years in Indonesia.

I am available for contact if you have any questions or would like to schedule a meeting.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Master of Arts degree in Teaching English as a Second Language and a Graduate Certificate in the same. I have taught all skill areas of ESL for 7 years both here and abroad predominantly at the University level. In Mongolia I taught at the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Language Institute as well as the Polytechic University. In Indonesia I taught Government employees from various Agencies such as Forestry, Marine, etc. I also taught groups (often on site) from oil companies, radio stations and banks. I have also tutored privately to Corporate CEO's and the daughter of the Uzbeki Ambassador to Indonesia, for example.

Indonesian

I have an M.A. in Applied Linguistics. I lived and worked in Indonesia for 5 years teaching English as a foreign language at the University level. During that time I became fluent in Indonesian which is a language based on Malayu the language of Malaysia. I also taught in Mongolia, Spain and the U.S. I have extensive experience teaching in the classroom or tutoring one-on-one.

Spanish

I lived in Spain for over 2 years. During that time I learned to speak, read and write Spanish fluently. Afterwards I studied Spanish at the University where I also lived/worked as a Resident Assistant of multi-lingual dormitories for two years. In addition I taught Spanish in the classroom for 2 years.

TOEFL

I have a Master of Arts degree in Teaching English as a Second Language and a Graduate Certificate in the same. I have taught all skill areas of ESL for 7 years both here and abroad including TOEFL preparation. In Mongolia I taught at the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Language Institute as well as the Polytechnic University.

I have also tutored privately to Corporate CEO's and the daughter of the Uzbeki Ambassador to Indonesia, for example. I understand the skills needed to pass the TOEFL exam including test taking strategies such as recognizing when the test makers are trying to trick the test taker into choosing the incorrect answer.
