I have just finished the content portion of the TEFL certification course. Of course, there is a requirement of practical hours, which can be met with a mix of observation and tutoring.
I would prefer to observe prior to tutoring to get a better feel for the flow of an ESOL classroom and techniques for making the online tutoring experience fun and effective for students. In the age of COVID, finding these opportunities locally is very difficult.
I’m new here but I read the forum rules, and sincerely hope this does not count as self-promotion — I just want to see great teachers do what they do best!
