Biography

James M. Peters (Jim) – I have a bachelor’s degree in political science (1970) and a doctorate in jurisprudence (1976). My first experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) was working as a Peace Corps Volunteer (See: https://www.peacecorps.gov/) for two years on Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. Later, I learned the need for clear articulation and pronunciation of the English language during my 38-year career as a lawyer where I tried hundreds of cases before juries and taught continuing education courses to lawyers and other professionals all over the USA and Canada. I have been active in sports my entire life, first as a competitor and later as a coach. As a young man, I taught swimming and coached competitive swim teams, and for 23 years I was a volunteer youth soccer (futbol) coach.    

Testimonials

Volunteering for ABVN since December 2017, I have seen 265 Vietnamese learners as of 9/3/2021, ranging in age from 11 to 69-years. Some of them I saw only once, others I have met more than 100 times online and many of them in-person during a visit to Vietnam in 2019. My "official" contribution to ABVN is helping students build confidence by improving their English pronunciation, but there is so much more. As we meet week after week and share the "ups and downs" of our lives, student and teacher develop friendships, gain a deeper understanding of our respective cultures and share our multi-generational experiences. It is worthwhile and fun! For prospective students and teachers, if you are ready to try something new, give ABVN a try, it could change your life.

Focus of teaching

Speaking/reading fluency, listening, and pronunciation.
