Janet & Beatriz

Matched January 2015

After almost a decade with English in Action, Beatriz is now a proficient English speaker and has become a vibrant member of the community. When Janet & Beatriz began their partnership five years ago, Beatriz spoke in a soft voice that was difficult to hear. Now she is speaking with more confidence and has even spoken to large groups in English. She has recently joined English In Action’s student leadership group and Board of Directors where her steady and calm guidance has been invaluable. Janet feels proud of Beatriz’s increased confidence and willingness to take risks. Originally from El Salvador, Beatriz moved to the valley in 2006. Janet lives in Woody Creek and has tutored nine students since she joined English In Action in 2009.
