English Tutoring

On Sunday evening a lady that lives behind me came over. I have helped her younger boys with their english homework before. That has always consisted of me writing a short (2nd grade level) story in english and the boys illustrating it! Easy, and kinda fun!

She has a niece that is in prepa (High school) her and her friends needed help prepping for a high english exam this week. They wanted to know if i would be willing to help them for a few hours on monday. Sure!

Monday came and five youth showed up (on time- thats how i knew they really needed help!)

They had 200 pages of a workbook they need to finish and get ready for this exam. gesh!

Three hours later we got a dent in what needed to be done.

Tuesday they came again.... for five hours (7am-12).

Today they are back... and tomorrow too (their exam is friday).

Right now, they are writing short essays. The instructions said, "write a short essay on... The Benefits Of......". One girl is writing on the benefits of foreigners in Mexico! HAHA

English tutoring is not something I consider myself good at and not something that i usually enjoy. But, I have had a lot of fun with these kids! They are funny, work hard trying to understand the english rules, we have drank a lot of coffee and ate a lot of tamales.

I do wish they lived in Jesus Maria.

Anyways, i wasn't expecting to do this all week, but it has been fun! I hope that they pass this english test! They have also asked a lot of questions about why i am here, what i believe etc. I hope that now that they heard the Gospel that they will think about what they have heard!

  1. Tina! That's awesome that you're tutoring these girls and using the time to share the gospel with them :). I hope they pass their test too, but I hope they keep coming back :)
