  • you’re a volunteer teacher seeking to work with Young Learners
  • you’re looking to start up a TEFL business for yourself
  • some of your teaching is likely to be with one-to-one adults 

Why this course

Specific sections deal with one-to-one methodology, materials and resources, student motivation and how to set yourself up as a freelance one-to-one teacher in this fast moving sector of the TEFL industry. There is help from experienced TEFL professionals, as well as sections on making use of technology in your classroom and how to teach one-to-one with minimal resources.

Written by EFL professionals with a wealth of experience in planning and delivering practical one-to-one English classes, this course makes creative use of video, podcasts, images and text, with links to websites where you can find materials suitable for adaptation to the one-to-one classroom environment.

During the course you'll be sourcing material for your own one-to-one lessons, thinking about course design and creating tailor-made lessons for your one-to-one students. Upon completion you will receive a free one year subscription to Handouts Online to provide you with online materials for your one-to-one classroom.

This course is for existing EFL teachers who wish to enhance their career and learn more about teaching in this specialised area of 1:1 teaching. Applicants should already hold a TEFL certificate and have some experience in teaching EFL.
