Foundations for Private Teachers – a CPD opportunity

“Can you recommend a (course) book I can use, preferably one with a teacher’s guide so I can follow?”

“Does anyone know of websites where I can find resources for this business class I have to teach?”

“I’d like to know how you prepare your (online) lessons. Do you prepare presentations? Do you use apps?”

“Can you give me a few tips on how to prepare conversation lessons for an upper intermediate student?”

If you follow social media groups for teachers like I do, chances are you have seen (heard) these types of questions quite often.

After talking about it with a dear friend of mine, Beth Mattei, a teacher with decades of experience in the classroom and as a private tutor, we decided to collaborate on a project.

We’ll be carrying out a series of online classes starting June 27th, aimed at teachers who are thinking about going solo, and for those who do not have much experience, but do have a lot of questions.

This post is to proudly announce this collaboration.

In order to answer the questions we’ve most frequently heard, we’ve prepared a quick and flexible foundations course to give teachers the tools to prepare for this new environment.

The course consists of 6 modules that can be taken separately or together, and it’ll be carried out 100% online.

Module 1Teaching one-to-one: problems & solutions
Module  2Needs analysis/ Placement tests: defining your learner’s level
Module  3Assessment (Testing your learner’s progress) &
Communication (Using Google apps)  
Module  4Choosing your class materials (course books & beyond) –
How to choose materials for online lessons  
Module  5Planning a lesson – Part I (Different approaches)  
Module  6Planning a lesson –  Part II – What to do when all fails (Alternative ideas)
