About Joren

With 27 years of experience and passion-driven learning about the culture, language, countries and faith/beliefs of various Spanish speaking peoples, I bring that with me to my work as a tutor of both Spanish and TOEFL or TESOL. I also bring the wisdom of a mother of two grown and multi-lingual adult children and a devoted wife of 39 years to this same tutoring experience. I am an avid reader, traveler, teacher, and learner with a great love of people.

My main passion and life's work has been a teacher of the Bible. However, to expand our ministry as a family, we chose to add Spanish to our lives in 1993. Since that start of that family project, I feel that I not only have gained immeasurably in knowledge of the language, but sensitivity to the peoples and cultures involved. Now, I am actively learning Albanian and will soon add this as my third language. I would love to help my students learn the richness of both Spanish or English as a second language.

The years involved in learning, as well as the finest source materials for learning both the language and proper grammar have equipped me. Also, the amazing techniques gained by both practical application and the Institute where I was trained innovative methods of tutoring.

A lifetime of speaking and studying American English is the first qualifier. The second is the training I received at the Canadian Institute of English in Toronto in 2007. This was outstanding and is an interactive approach taught us by Professor Harry Cotton himself, our instructor.

I will be very happy to meet you and help you. We will enjoy our learning and teaching experience!

Excellent, knowledgeable, engaging

We use tutors from Wyzant and some are just okay. Annie is great! She taught my son more Spanish in two hours than he had learned all year at school. Very personable and professional. Highly recommend her!
