As a newly certified goFLUENT teacher, you help train business professionals in English. You will teach a variety of customized lessons based on the professional needs and interests of each individual learner (finance, law, sales, IT, etc.).
These one-on-one English training lessons are taught via live telephone. This combines the educational benefits of a personal face-to-face English lesson with the flexibility of a long-distance lesson. Each session lasts a minimum of 30 minutes to a maximum of 90 minutes.
Workshops and video conferences for groups are also offered by goFLUENT. The types of assignments you receive will vary according to the company’s needs at that time.
There is no need for you to find your own resources and create your own lesson plans. goFLUENT takes all the weight off your shoulders. The company’s support system is available around the clock. The company also offers a vast amount of resources for lessons. All you need to worry about is showing up to teach!
While teaching your lessons, ensure that you’re patient and encouraging. Learning a language can often be difficult and frustrating. The more friendly and motivating you are, the more successful you and your students will be.
At the end of each lesson, you will need to provide progress reports to each of your clients. These reports summarize the lesson with detailed corrections, additional training materials and homework for the next lesson.
