If you choose an in-class TESOL certification course or an online TESOL course with tutor support, you need to be sure that the teacher trainers you will have contact with are experienced, qualified and knowledgeable in all areas of English language teaching. At ITTT we pride ourselves in only employing trainers who we know can tick all three of these boxes as a bare minimum. We are fully aware that taking a TESOL course is a serious commitment in terms of your time, effort and finances, so it is only right that we provide you with the very best tuition and guidance possible.
In-Class TESOL Course Trainers
Our in-class certification courses run for 4 weeks straight and in that time our trainees spend many hours in the classroom receiving instruction in a wide range of topics, from teaching methodologies and classroom management to lesson planning and activity design. During the input sessions you will be under the guidance of our professional trainers who have many years experience as classroom teachers and teacher trainers. As well as being highly experienced and qualified in the field of English language teaching, our trainers are dedicated to guiding every trainee towards successful graduation by providing all the individual support they require.
Another important aspect of our in-class TESOL course is the time spent in a real English language classroom attended by genuine language students from the local area. In the early part of the course you will have the opportunity to observe our trainers delivering English lessons in this authentic classroom environment. This is a great opportunity to pick up tips and get a general feel for how a professional, experienced teacher operates in the classroom. Once you have found your feet and the course is well underway, you will then teach several lessons of your own which will be observed by a trainer. On completion of each practice lesson you will receive extensive feedback on the areas where you were strong and any areas where you could make improvements for future lessons.
Online TESOL Course Tutors
If you choose an online TESOL course you will have the option of completing it either with or without the help of an online tutor. Choosing a tutored course is highly recommended if you are unfamiliar with distance learning or if you feel you work better with the support of a professional tutor. While you will not receive the hands-on guidance that is available during an in-class course, our online tutors are equally experienced and qualified and will be there to support you from start to finish of your chosen course. If you have any problems or questions, no matter how small, you can email your tutor who will promptly reply with all the answers you need to move forward with your studies.
