Since this summer I have been tutoring a young women English as a Second Language.
I really like being her tutor because it has showed me how difficult English can be to learn. The English language is full of double meanings and confusing rules and is very tricky to explain. It’s made me very aware of my privilege of being a native English speaker.
I find people who are able to speak multiple languages fascinating and highly intelligent because that is not an easy task.

I’m glad I decided to become an ESL tutor because it has been such a fulfilling role for me.
