Do you find classroom management tough? Are you teaching a new level or age group and need help with the transition? Do you feel like lesson planning is taking over your life?
Choose what skill, or skills, you want to develop, based on your own ideas of your strengths and weaknesses as a teacher or on previous feedback. Get specified support that is only aimed towards helping you feel more confident as a teacher.
Once we have talked about your needs, current position and aims, we will work together to plan out the next steps of your teaching skill development.
This can be done over almost any time frame, to suit your busy schedule and to work with your life.
We can provide as much or as little support as you personally feel that you need. If you change your mind, and want more time or support, we can work together again to create a plan that really does suit you and help you.
Get help whilst developing your teaching skills.
Who you are:
If you are an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) Teacher who wants to improve their teaching skills then this is for you.
The problems you may be facing:
Classroom management is overwhelming to you and it is sucking all of the joy out of your teaching. You just need some help getting your classes to focus on the excellent lessons you spend your time preparing for.
You want to be a better teacher and need a bit of help getting there. Maybe you have recently started teaching a new age group, level or technique that you are still unfamiliar with.
Perhaps, the future of your current job role relies on "making an improvement" but no one seems to have the time to help you on that journey. The thought of your next observed lesson fills you with dread.
You simply need someone to professionally and confidentially support you whilst you improve on one or two key teaching skills.
How we can help:
We offer 1:1 teaching skill mentoring services via video call, for anyone whose job role is within EFL Teaching and who wants to invest in their own development. These are priced at £35 for a single 30 minute session, with discounted rates available for purchases of 2 hours or more when purchased in a single transaction. These sessions are usually most effective if spread out over several weeks, allowing time for further reading and for you to try out your new skills with your classes.
You also have the option to add 10 days of messaging support via Voxer on to your mentoring sessions. This means you can get unlimited tailored support by message to any questions that come up in this time frame. You can purchase multiple 10 day messaging support packages which are priced at £70 each. Discounted rates are available for purchases of 20 day blocks or more when purchased in a single transaction.
