Barbara T. - Howard

BSc Hort, MI Hort. Trinity Cert TESOL

An accomplished, highly experienced tutor with outstanding lesson management skills and a genuine passion for helping children and adults of all abilities reach their full potential.

Having successfully worked within the horticulture sector since 1997, in 2011 I retrained to teach English and ever since I have taught at a wide range of schools across the UK as well as in Spain and more recently online. I have undertaken numerous positions within my self-employed career which has enabled me to build an extensive skill set that allows me to deliver engaging lessons, rigorous management and impressive results.

Throughout my career I have always looked to excel in everything that I do. I am self-motivated, creative with a strong work ethic. I am an all round professional with a proven record of success. Diligent, organized, reliable and proactive, able to establish and sustain strong relationships with clients and fellow team members, and dedicated to ensuring my work is carried out to the highest of standards.
