About Rene


Bio

I'm Rene. I have an M.A. in TESOL, a B.A. in English, and more than 25 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL). I have taught at colleges and universities in St. Louis, Missouri and in Nanchang, Jiangxi Province, in the People's Republic of China. I've worked with complete beginners and students with very advanced English skills. I have taught people from ages four to sixty. I love teaching ESOL/EFL because I get to meet...

I'm Rene. I have an M.A. in TESOL, a B.A. in English, and more than 25 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL). I have taught at colleges and universities in St. Louis, Missouri and in Nanchang, Jiangxi Province, in the People's Republic of China. I've worked with complete beginners and students with very advanced English skills. I have taught people from ages four to sixty. I love teaching ESOL/EFL because I get to meet interesting people from all over the world!

I am able and willing to teach all aspects of English. My specialties, though, are writing and pronunciation. I especially enjoy teaching accent reduction. It gives me great pleasure to help a student who struggles to be understood become of aware of his or her pronunciation issues and learn to self-correct!

My greatest assets as a teacher are extreme patience and the ability to explain things in ways that non-native English speakers understand. If I have to say something five different ways or give ten examples before a student understands, I will.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I will respond withing 24 hours.
