Course Feedback

"Tutors were excellent. Constructive support throughout. Always ready to listen and to help. Readily available through email and Twitter. Very supportive on a personal level too. "
, CELTA student,
"This is a wonderful course for teachers-to-be. The tutors are professional and patient, the classmates are nice and helpful and the "students" are cooperative and inspiring. And I like the teaching methods very much. Sometimes you might think that you'd learnt little, but actually the knowledge had already been yours because the tutors didn't just give lectures but to take you as students and allow you to experience such teaching methods yourselves, and then you would use what you've got to "teach" your students, which made it more impressive and gave you some thoughts about its feasibility. And the part of commenting mutually was also good for improvement since they always gave practical comments and suggestions. Although many teaching techniques learnt are not feasible in China, the general methods and basic knowledge inspire me a lot. And of course no matter in which context, teachers should be flexible all the time. All in all, I love this course and benefit from it a lot. Maybe one day I'll go back to have the DELTA course when I need inspiration and promotion in teaching."
, CELTA student,
" Our amazing tutors Helen and Pete: Have fun! Are on time and prepared. Are friendly and acknowledge students when they arrive. Encourage the student to develop good examples/discover examples provided in the text. Let the student do the work. Ask leading questions to help students learn and understand the material. Are patient and provide appropriate "think" time. Provide encouragement. Are aware of their nonverbal communication. Are aware of and acknowledge cultural differences while treating tutees consistently and with respect. Relate successful study strategies to the tutee. Use questioning rather than answering strategies. Pay attention and are sensitive to the self-esteem issues of each tutee. Are able to explain concepts from several different angles. Focus the session on the process of learning rather than on the correctness of the answer. Rotate around the room spending time evenly with students. Conduct themselves in a professional manner. Provide a safe learning environment. "
