Information about Barry
I teach business English to non-native speakers, and I offer advanced music theory lessons to undergraduates and adult learners. I offer one-to-one and group lessons in person and via Skype/Zoom.
I teach on a one-to-one basis on weeknights and weekends. I teach in person, not online. During a students first lesson, I assess their needs and determine their level in order to select a syllabus thats both appropriate and challenging; I prepare a plan for each subsequent lesson in line with the syllabus and the student`s learning goals.
I encourage my students to take the lead, to think for themselves, and to challenge me.
