About Barbara

While I am a new tutor at WyzAnt, I am a highly experienced and committed ESL teacher. My work has given me the opportunity to travel all over the world and get to know many different cultures. Teaching is my joy and passion, and I believe that building up good relationships with my students is key to their success in learning to communicate in English as a Second Language. I believe I have the ability to motivate and to inspire, and develop each student to their highest potential.

I specialize in tutoring English and preparing students for IELTS examinations. I have extensive experience in teaching Aviation English to Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers - and preparing them for language testing. I have also taught Business English, and recently graduated (summa cum laude) with an MA in TESOL. As I have several degrees and have studied in diverse fields (business, psychology, and education), I can assist with study skills and develop remedial programs for students who are experiencing difficulties and underachieving in their studies.

My initial consultation is free. During this first consultation meeting, it is my policy to do a thorough needs analysis and be sure there is a good fit between the student's expectations and what I have to offer. If the student or parent is not completely satisfied, there will be no obligation to continue.

My work is of a very high standard, and I tailor each program to the specific student's needs. I assign homework, and do periodic assessments and progress reports. I also ask for personal feedback at the end of each session.

I look forward to meeting with you and helping you achieve your goals.

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.

Writing

I have extensive experience editing MBA dissertations at a Business School for international students. I attended Wits Business School in South Africa.
