Another activity that's kept me out of mischief lately is tutoring ESL. My student has been coming more frequently lately. I hope that in September I'll have more students. I enjoy teaching ESL. It's wonderful to make a positive difference in someone's life. The only trouble is that it's like gardening: you can only plant the seeds and try to offer nurturing care, and hope that the seeds take root and grow. I can only help the student with his/her English, teach what is needed and help whenever possible, and just hope the person learns and grows with it.
I like teaching ESL better than gardening, though! :)
