About Barry


Bio

I love to see my students achieve their goals so that they do not need me anymore in a tutor/student relationship. I was an ESL teacher in a Haitian cultural center in New York City. It was an exciting and challenging opportunity for me as all my students were at different levels of English acquisition. Some were illiterate in their native Kreyol which brought new challenges.

I love to see my students achieve their goals so that they do not need me anymore in a tutor/student relationship. I was an ESL teacher in a Haitian cultural center in New York City. It was an exciting and challenging opportunity for me as all my students were at different levels of English acquisition. Some were illiterate in their native Kreyol which brought new challenges.

I am very patient. If my student does not grasp a concept, I will implement another approach. Real world applications always make the lessons interesting.

I believe in a lot of contextualization as most of us are very visual creatures. I encourage my students to be like actors and play a part which in turn will help rid them of their inhibitions. I also believe that gently introducing grammatical concepts is necessary for good conversational skills.

My minor in college was Spanish. I have lived in Mexico twice. I am thrilled with Spanish grammar and I want you to be also. ¡Vamonos! The great thing with Spanish unlike English is that it is a phonetic language...we write it as we hear it and vice versa.

As an American speaker of Spanish, I know firsthand which road blocks other English speakers encounter on their journey toward language acquisition.

I am a personable and patient tutor who will find a way to knock down any walls that might otherwise hinder your learning. If you have any question, please feel free to contact me.
