At some point during your teaching career you will probably be approached to give one-to-one classes. In many ways, one-to-one teaching offers benefits to you as the teacher, such as the ability to tailor learning to the specific needs of the student. On the other hand, teaching one-to-one can be physically and mentally exhausting for both you and the student. Here are 6 things that you need to consider when teaching English one-to-one.
2013 was a great year for OnTESOL as we celebrated our 10th anniversary with new courses, books, and job assistance services. We want to thank all our trainers and trainees for helping us grow and improve once again.
In March, we launched the new 20-hour Teaching Business English Course (TBEC). Now trainees can take the 120-hour Specialized TESOL Certificate, which combines our standard 100-hour TESOL Certificate program with their choice of 20-hour TBEC or Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) specialization.
This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary! OnTESOL was launched in 2003 to offer high quality TESOL training in an online format. Our first course was a 200-hour TESOL certificate, which was developed using Coventry House International’s 5-week Trinity CertTESOL/TESL Canada Standard 1 syllabus. This course was later upgraded to a 250-hour TESOL Diploma in order to qualify for TESL Canada Professional Standard 2 accreditation. This program has been adopted by many Canadian language schools who trust OnTESOL to train their teachers, and has gained great popularity throughout the world, especially in countries like Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, and United Arab Emirates.
