Here's a good forum...much overlooked topic in many places.

I can't think of a type of class that requires more varied skills in a teacher. In 5 years in Mexico City doing many private tutoring gigs, I've really taxed myself in keeping on top of my own training. GMAT prep, TOEFL prep, business writing, translations, interpretations, finance, avation, there seems to be no end to the ESPs (English for Specific Purpose) programs to tailor to the one student.

Whoa! So that's what that means, huh?

And here I was signing up for that class so I could learn to teach them private students ESL via telepathy. Embarassed Now I know why that joker looked so incredulous when I demanded a refund (imagine me giving that fella the "Christopher Walken" handshake from that movie The Dead Zone).

So much for extra sensory perceptions.

Say, is a teacher of ESP in the TESP field? (looks like an anagram of pest).

Laters,

Pete
