As a private tutor and ESL teacher for over 25 years I have been able to see many students learn to converse with ease. My teaching style is very interactive using over 40 different teaching strategies that are proven, field-tested methods. Making learning fun and easy will help you learn to speak English fluently in the shortest time.

I work with students at all levels, from beginners to advanced speakers. Because I also have a background in business, specifically real estate, mortgage lending and insurance, I enjoy tutoring people in those fields who need to learn the language unique to those industries.

Free consultations are available to evaluate what your current skill level is as well as what your goals are. My only requirement is that you are a motivated student. While I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up options.

Please contact me now while I still have openings for new students and let's see if we will work well together.

Bible Studies

As a Bible teacher for 47 years I have 116 lessons that teach Bible accounts from the creation to the flood of Noah's day; the deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt to the birth of Jesus; the death of Jesus to his resurrection. The information in these lessons is designed to teach the Bible accounts in clear, easy to understand language that will enrich the life of the student rather than define their religious beliefs.

I also teach a series, detailing 133 lessons from Jesus birth, his early life, his ministry and final days, and his impact on the world.

These courses of study are designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of the Bible or the accounts of Jesus life respectively.


I have spent over 25 years in the teaching field and I am certified as a teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

Making learning fun and easy is important in learning a language so I use over 40 different methods to accomplish this.


I currently tutor individuals preparing for the IELTS exam and have found specific ways to teach that are most beneficial. All 4 areas need to be addressed, however, generally my students need the most help on the writing and speaking portions. Identifying the areas a student needs the most work in is critical. I conduct multiple practice sessions with the student to help them become familiar with, and most importantly, comfortable with the format of the exam.

Very professional! Irene takes care of her students, she encourages and makes them work everyday to improve their English. I wanted to take English lessons because I needed to take the IELTS exam.
