About Barbara

I love tutoring professionals and ambitious Advanced English level students from various countries. I can help you with conversation English, idioms, vocabulary, pronunciation and writing. If you want to improve your presentations, resumes and emails or improve your college application essays, contact me. Let's work together to help you feel more confident and competent. I've taught Business Communications, ESL and American culture courses at community colleges and language schools in NY and CA. My goal is to get results.

I've worked in the business world as a marketing, content & communications manager for stellar companies. These include CBS, Harcourt Brace, Scripps and Microsoft. I've been the regional manager of a national thought leadership project and mentored for the Afghan Women's Writing Project. I published in newspapers, magazines and online. (I also wrote a novel that attracted Hollywood interest.) I've given keynote speeches to over 500 people. I have a BA in English from Barnard College/Columbia University and I'm the mother of a son who graduated from Stanford University. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

Besides giving corporate presentations, I've been a keynote speaker for the UC San Diego's Women’s Conference and Spirit of the Barrio corporate fundraiser (over 600 in each audience); UCSD International Women’s Day and Women’s Executives International. I also was a speaker for The Millionaire Girls’ Movement panel, Whidbey Island Writers Conference and San Diego Writers and Editors Guild.

I therefore know about how to put a speech together and effectively present. I've also created curriculum and teacher materials for publishers. And I have been an instructor, tutor and teacher for The Afghan Women’s Writing Project, Universal English (NYC), Language and Culture (NYC), UCSD Extension, Mira Costa Community College, San Diego Golf Academy, ELS Language School and Language Studies International.
