I teach a range of levels, intermediate to advanced, & I help expand vocab for social & business purposes

Conversation Conversation
Business Business
Vocabulary Vocabulary
Tourism Tourism
My classes are both engaging and entertaining. They have a particular focus on enabling the students to sound as much like a native speaker as possible. I place a high importance on expanding vocabulary for real life and business situations. I have many business subjects to choose from these include general business, negotiations, meetings and presentations, emails, social situations, small talk
what should you expect from my classes:
I like to use current affairs, business materials and collocations for conversation in my classes. This helps in learning to use English in a natural way. Expanding vocab with collocations, helps with both grammar and greater confidence with talking to native speakers in both social and work environments
my teaching background:
I am an Australian EFL teacher who is currently in South America. For the past 2.5 years I have been working and living in Peru. I specialize in helping students gaining confidence in conversation with an increased vocabulary. I am also a senior English instructor with Berlitz Virtual Classroom
my background outside of teaching:
Before becoming a teacher, I spent numerous years in the mining, construction and hospitality industries. I have worked on gas plants, bauxite and various other mines. However, my interest in other cultures has always been present, as evidenced by my work on frequent indigenous housing projects.
native languages:
Berlitz Online Europe

    I really recommend lessons with Barney. He is a very good teacher You can talk with him about everything under the sun. Our lessons are always very funny but also very interesting and gripping - like a good book. After each lesson, I'm looking forward to the next one. If you look for a teacher who is funny but also patient and smart, you should choose Barney :)
