Teaching Special Groups in ESL - Teaching Individuals (One-to-One)


The next category we are looking at in our series on teaching special groups in ESL are individuals. Teaching individuals, or one-to-one, forms a large part of the ESL market. Find out the positives, negatives and tips in this video.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This last unit was the most confusing of the grammar exercises. Quite nervous for this one, as I'm not sure that these words make sense or not anymore! Might be better to let the brain rest. That said, feeling rather relieved that the grammar portion of this exam is almost over!This introduction unit was a great insight, knowing now what lies ahead, I'm so excited to start. I really love the idea of working with children. They love to have fun and don't take things so seriously. Also knowing the different terminology around the world is really helpful.Most of the information in this section I knew already, having been a teacher in a UK school for almost two years and having used most of these resources myself. It was useful to have all of the information in one section but not much of the information and advice was new to me.
