For Teachers

Hey, ESL teacher! Glad you’re here!

My name is Bethany Anderson and I’ve been teaching adult ESL for the past decade plus (and I’ve pretty much loved every minute of it)! I have an M.A. in TESOL and I’ve taught for nonprofit organizations, businesses, and community college programs.

I started Anderson Language Center to equip Spanish-speaking adult learners to use English in their daily lives.  In addition serving students, I provide resources for teachers “in the trenches”, inspiring you to be the best version of your teacher self! I want to share some of the tools I have developed as well as good practices and tips from other great teachers. Sound good? Have a look at some of my resources for teachers below.

Teacher Entrepreneurship

Have you thought about going solo with teaching English? Or are you curious about the makeup of this growing segment of the field of TESOL?

This presentation will give you a quick overview of what teaching English as a business can look like, as well as introduce you to a few TESOL professionals who are doing just that. This session was originally presented at the MIDTESOL 2023 conference.

Teacher Entrepreneurship: Trends, Methods & Misconceptions

Marco Polo for asynchronous English speaking practice

Are you interested in exploring a tool to help your students practice listening and speaking outside the classroom? These slides (originally presented at MIDTESOL 2021) walk you step-by-step through how to use the Marco Polo app to provide your students with additional speaking practice.

Marco Polo as a Tool for Conversation Practice

A fabulous freebie just for you!

I haven’t met a teacher in my life who would ever turn down a free lesson plan, and I want to send you a packet of 8 lesson plans that I wrote! The lesson series is called Real Life English and it’s focused on “everyday life” situations (ordering food at a restaurant, scheduling a doctor’s appointment, finding a book at the library, etc.) that adult students routinely encounter in their daily lives.

Just provide your name and email below and I’ll send you the Real Life English lesson plan packet and I’ll also periodically (once a month at most!) send you resources that I think will be helpful to you as an adult ESL teacher. (If you don’t find these emails relevant or useful, you can unsubscribe at any time!)

Enter your info below and I’ll send it your way!
