TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Jo Ann


Jo Ann took the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support from ITTT. In this TEFL review video Jo Ann tells how she completed the course in six weeks and despite not needing the tutor support, was glad that is was there if necessary. Jo Ann is now volunteering her time as an English tutor at her local library and plans to move to Santiago in Chile for a year to teach English. It should be noted that volunteering your services as an English teacher at your local library or community centre is not only a great way to do something for your community, it is also an excellent means of gaining classroom experience to add to you CV or resume before heading out to teach English abroad.

In this unit, I learned about the four present tenses: Present Simple, Present Continuous, Present perfect and Present perfect continuous. I learned some important grammar points and how to cover them in different areas like form, uses, typical students errors, activate stage and teaching ideas.This unit taught me the importance of a lesson plan and its usage. It helps keep a log of lessons already reviewed, as well as learner goals that would be needed to be finished by the end of the lesson for student benefit. Also, helps monitor teaching progress and what would be needed to improve.Wow, tenses are hard for me. Not using them when speaking just putting the names to the right tense. I pray I did well on this test as I went over the information again and again. It was well presented, although still mind boggling. I know I can teach it correctly. I learned a lot from this unit.
