If you want to enjoy learning how to speak English, how to pronounce so you can be understood, how to understand the vastness of American culture and how to converse in practical and professional situations, then call me. I have spent 17 years as a missionary teaching English as a second language. I have had the opportunity to train others how to teach English and have seen how a little encouragement and a lot of listening can help the learner be more comfortable in their learner experience and this increases their confidence. I have taught Cultural Awareness in combination with teaching ESL during those years, living in 5 different countries and visiting several others. I have kept up my skills these last two years of moving back to the States by teaching English at a local manufacturing company, teaching ESL at the local Community Center and taking workshops. My life experience working with other cultures can bring much to the table. I am very respectful of other beliefs. My goal is to help others get past their fear of using English in everyday situations. My passion is pronunciation, conversation and phonetics. The rest is up to you!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have had 30 years experience teaching ESL overseas and am currently an ESL Teacher / Clerical Aide at the local Adult Education program in New Braunfels, Texas. I have been with them for two years so far. I teach the lower beginner level and in doing so, we start from the beginning with how to make sounds, how to recognize letters that make the sounds and then how to produce those sounds with your tongue and mouth so the students can be understood. We then begin short stories, conversations and comprehension skills. We have a lot of fun doing it because I believe if you can't have fun doing something or learning something; then it takes much longer than it normally would. Each student has a different personality and it is the teacher's job to understand and work towards getting the student, no matter what age, to enjoy and feel comfortable that they are not afraid to make a mistake as they make an effort to learn.
