About the lesson
If you are looking for IELTS success, I can help you to understand the test requirements and develop proven strategies to help you achieve the band score you need.
I also specialise in assisting with your Academic Writing and can help you to improve your results through proof-reading, editing and meeting assessment criteria.
Together, we will diagnose your skills and abilities and design a program that targets your weaknesses, but also helps to build on your strengths.
They keys to success in IELTS are understanding the test and understanding what the examiner is looking for. I can help you in this area.
However, to ultimately be successful in IELTS, you will also need a solid study plan, with step by step targets to help you achieve your ultimate goal. Hard work and a clear plan to help you develop your understanding of the English language are key elements to achieving your goals. I hope I can help you on your journey.

I have been an ESL teacher for more than 10 years. After graduating in Journalism and working in small business, I decided to train to become an English language teacher. This was the best decision I have ever made, as I love being able to share my knowledge and help others grow theirs.
I worked for five years teaching English in Vietnam, before coming back to my hometown of Melbourne to continue my language teaching journey here. I have taught students from so many different countries and I love learning about the cultures and customs of my students.
I like to create fun lessons with a variety of activities to make my lessons interesting and rewarding.
I hope to be able to share my strategies, knowledge and ideas with you soon.
Perfect! Barney is more than helpful along the way to my ielts test preparation.
I definitely recommend him as a teacher..
- Barney's response : Max was very clear on what he needed help with and gave me direction for how our lesson should proceed. He indicated he requires help to improve his reading and writing to prepare for the IELTS test and gave me some examples of his writing so I could accurately diagnose his issues and work on a plan for improvement.
Perfect! Barney is very patient and friendly. He helps me to correct my grammar for my essay even outside of lesson time. I really appreciate it. Will definitely recommend him as a English tutor.
- Barney's response : Kathy was great to work with. She quickly described her needs and we were able to work together to provide a good outcome.

I taught ESL English and IELTS with Barney for over 6 years in Vietnam. He is a versatile and gifted teacher, who personally motivated many students to achieve their very best. I thoroughly recommend him to any students seeking excellent results, sound advice and genuine support from a talented teacher.

Barney is dynamic and effective. He taught me and some of my friends and we learnt well with him. He has good methods and helped me achieve my goals.
Barney has a love of life, language, his family and sport. Barney has taught students from all over the world with great success. His patient and caring attitude and dynamic lessons help his students develop their English skills and abilities and to achieve their goals. I was aware first-hand of his teaching in Vietnam where he was second-in-charge of school there and was highly regarded by the students, the parents, Principal, and the other teachers.
Barney is a great English teacher.
He makes class not only serious and effective but also fun and enjoyable as using some tools, videos, and talking about his unique experiences.
While I was learning IELTS from him, he always helped me, corrected my writing and speaking assessment attentively, and encouraged me to be motivated.
I really thank him for everything and recommend him everybody who wants to learn English.
Barney is so patient and his lessons help me to understand English better. He is a fun teacher and super friendly and helpful.
