About Helen

Even though I am a trained music educator and also an editor, I have found great satisfaction in teaching English to Spanish speakers. I am married to a man from Mexico so have lots of experience teaching conversation as well as grammar and reading. Especially rewarding for me is teaching teens or adults who want to assimilate into the U.S. culture through jobs and school. I have taught ESL to individuals and small classes for almost a decade. We have fun as well as studying hard! Learning English is hard and requires dedication. If you really want to learn, I'm here to help.

I also work part-time as a copy editor, so have great interest in helping people improve their writing through better organization, grammar, and spelling. Whether you speak Spanish and want to boost your English or are an English-as-a-first-language person, I can help you be a better communicator! I look forward to seeing you.

What makes me a good tutor is that I care about you and your success. Seeing people learn and improve, and being happy doing it, is very satisfying.

I have five years of formal education in Spanish, but didn't really learn to converse until I married my husband of thirteen years. Immersion is the way to learn! I also taught elementary school Spanish for a year and lived in a community that was about 35% Hispanic.

Investing in your education is one of the best things you can do. Let me help you, especially to be a better communicator. You will land a better job, get along in your community, and feel more confident in your abilities. Please contact me so we can get you started on a road to increased success.
