5 Overall Experience    Experience rating
Both students and staff are very committed to learning.

 I am tutoring both an ESOL student (from Morocco) and a Basic Lit student (dyslexic). They are both extremely pleasant to work with, hungry for learning and for communication skills. I am challenged to come up with lessons that are interesting and helpful for them. As an editor, I am personally more aware of the meaning of language and all of its nuances when I meet with my students; grammar, idiom and even cultural matters figure into our lessons. Helping another person to understand English enhances my own appreciation of the language that we all take so for granted.
