We recommend enrolling onto this session alongside or after completing a 120+ hour TEFL course. Happy TEFLing!
Before the live session, you'll be asked to complete a short preparation task. This includes watching a short clip from an online lesson and giving feedback, reviewing some teaching resources and planning a mini lesson on a choice of topics. When it's time for the session, you'll then discuss your task with the tutor and your fellow tutees.
The main aspect of the Online Teaching Practice Session is the 2-hour, live Zoom session with one of our experienced and highly qualified TEFL tutors. With up to ten tutees in total, you'll first discuss each others' preparation task with the tutor, then take turns practising your online teaching skills and finally, take part in an informal Q&A session with your tutor - your chance to ask any of those niggling TEFL questions!
During the session, you and each of your fellow tutees will get that all-important teaching practice. Using the 5-minute lesson plan you created as part of your preparation task, you'll deliver a mini lesson and then get instant feedback from the tutor. A perfect way to build your confidence and get you ready to deliver your first official lesson!
After the session, we recommend completing the reflection task we'll provide for you. This involves reviewing your feedback and setting yourself some achievable goals to improve your teaching prowess. You've got this!
On successful completion of the Online Teaching Practice Session, we'll provide you with a detailed feedback form for you to share with potential employers when you kick-start your online TEFL job hunt! This will prove that you've taken part in online teaching practice so that employers can be confident in your newfound teaching skills - and it'll boost your employment potential. Win!
