This summer, I became a certified adult ESL tutor. Over the summer, as part of an ongoing project to promote literacy, I decided to tutor a few third level ESL students at the Council of Literacy. Having this opportunity to teach adults as opposed to children really revealed some things to me, especially through one of my students in particular. Said student was an elderly lady in her 60s. She was from Mexico, and had a hard life growing up. When she was an adult, she immigrated to the United States to support her grandchildren, and eventually found her way down to Texas. 

After meeting her, I was inspired by her story. She had struggled throughout her life, but at the end had come out of it as an optimistic adventurer who loved to explore. It was clear that she was truly motivated to learn English despite her age, and she has said that because of her travels, she feels younger than she really was.

All in all, my tutoring at the Council of Literacy gave me a fresh outlook on how to approach my goals, as well as furthering my passion for literacy. I realized that, despite how cliche it sounds, you are really never too old to learn. I hope to eventually bring this view and passion to others struggling with learning a second language.
