About Barbara

I would very much like to tutor English grammar and reading.
As a Peace Corps Corp volunteer in Morocco I was requested by The American Language Center in Rabat to tutor a student who needed to raise her English scores in order to attend Emory College in the United States. In addition, as a Peace Corp volunteer in Morocco I attended the Peace Corp education training program for three months. During that time I was prepared to develop lesson plans and exams. I received a position teaching English For Special Purposes at a school for health care careers in Marakesh, Morocco. There I instructed students in all phases of English, including conversation, essay writing, grammar,and pronunciation. It was necessary to develop my lesson plans, and exams having no written material. This position offered me a great deal of satisfaction and a great sense of accomplishment in seeing my students pass their final exams.

After completing my Peace Corp service I was hired by the American Language Center in Rabat as an instructor of English as a Second language.

When I returned to the United States after completing three years of service I became a resident of Sarasota, Florida, where I obtained employment as an English Tutor in a GED program. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience knowing I took a part in their successfully passing their exams and obtaining their GED's, some continuing on to college.

I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Barbara
