About Barry

I have worked at a senior level in the Engineering, Construction and Financial fields and am able to draw on 30 plus years' experience when tutoring adult students in Business and General English.

My Alma Mater are the Universities of Kwa-Zulu Natal and Cape Town where I graduated BSocSc and BCom(Hons) respectively, and I've  completed the 300 hour TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course. I've been teaching Business English and General English to adult students on a freelance basis at their business premises in Cape Town, South Africa. 

My passion is to meet new people of all nationalities and to help them achieve their learning goals in a fun and interactive way.

I make a great tutor for adult learners as my approach is to prepare my students for the "real business world", having been there myself.
