About Barri


Bio

My name is Barri M. I have a PhD. I have been an instructor for over eight years in online and traditional University settings. I teach for five different universities across the country and hold a Biblical worldview. My father raised me with the idea to always have an education on which to fall back. In 1985, I earned a Master's of Business Administration. In 2003, I completed the requirements for a PhD in the field of Biblical studies. With hard work, you can earn any degree that you...

My name is Barri M. I have a PhD. I have been an instructor for over eight years in online and traditional University settings. I teach for five different universities across the country and hold a Biblical worldview. My father raised me with the idea to always have an education on which to fall back. In 1985, I earned a Master's of Business Administration. In 2003, I completed the requirements for a PhD in the field of Biblical studies. With hard work, you can earn any degree that you desire.

I am an example of one person whose life was changed with education. Education changes the direction of your life. Every sacrifice that you make (except for family), will be worth it when you attain your desired degree or field of study. It would be my humble honor to tutor you. I welcome your questions. Learning is a partnership between the student and the instructor. One day at a time, one page at a time -- if you do the work, you will achieve the success you desire.

A good tutor encourages the students to do what they do not want to do and to attain more than they could dream. Many people have the will to be a success, but few make the effort to be a success. May I tutor you?

ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

I have taught many international people how to speak better English. It is a joy to see them be able to communicate better in English. My lessons are interactive and specialized to YOUR specific needs. Some students need help spelling; others need help with conversation. Yet others need help within the corporate environment. I realize how challenging it can be to not communicate. One woman who takes lessons from me was promoted after four weeks of being with me! Another student got a job, after not working for seven years. I would love the opportunity to help you or your loved one speak better English. I give my students documents for them to practice at home. The extra ingredient that I add to my lessons is JOY.
Greek,

Greek

I have completed my doctoral work and have a PhD in biblical studies. I did actually have to have a working knowledge of Greek in order to get my doctorate. My academic chair was one of my instructors and guided me through the process, as I have never had a Greek language class in my life. Biblical Greek is much different than conversational Greek, and I do have a working knowledge of Biblical Greek.
Hebrew,

I am an author of three devotional books on the Hebrew names of God. I bring forth Hebrew into the Sunday school classroom as well every Sunday at Mount Paran Church of God.
Proofreading,

Proofreading

As I have been a college educator for years, I am adept at spelling and proof-reading. Good grammar and paragraph construction make or break a good assignment. If a student needs to adhere to APA formats, I can give assistance in that area as well.

Reading,

Reading

It is an honor to help people learn to read. I work with students from age 8 the senior adult. For the younger students, we work through a reading system. The young students have a book room and I work with them in their reading. As they complete a book, they can take a short quiz that determines reading comprehension. The reading plan is graduated so they can see their own accomplishments. This is a wonderful reward tool for the student. I have used this system for international students to improve their reading as well. Learning is always a two-way street between the instructor and the student. It is my joy to help students of all ages learn to read better.

I have been an active fit individual for forty years. In 1993, I took up the sport of running. First I completed 10ks and then, in 1997, I completed the St George Marathon in St George , Utah. I have run one other marathon. (Marines Corps marathon) and several half marathons. One does not attain fitness overnight; it takes discipline and consistent hard work. Is running and exercise your passion? It is mine. I work out at least four times weekly and enjoy running, weather permitting. If you need someone who can counsel you on training, what to eat, what to wear and what shoes to buy, I can help and tutor you.

Amazing, inspiring tutor!

Barri is an amazing tutor, very dedicated and patient as well. She helped me to pursue some of my professional goals. Under her tutoring, I was able to score 108/120 points on TOEFL iBT. Barri provides plenty of material and is familiarized with new technologies such as e-books, cellphone/tablet apps and internet sources. Personally, I consider Barri a talented mentor and teacher. She truly finds joy in her students' achievements and puts great effort on their self-development. Thanks for everything, Barri!

Wonderful tutor.

I can't thank Barri enough for helping me. Barri is not only a tutor of mine but also a good friend of mine. As I get to know her and work with her, she has been very kind and supportive on everything that I did. I haven't met anybody that is so special and kind. Barri has an interest in everything that I did. I definitely recommend Barri for a tutor.
