Each module has a lesson that you will study at your own pace and an assignment that you will accomplish. When your assignment has been graded you will receive a notification and be able to view your grade, plus any guidance and feedback, in your online grade book. The grade book allows you to easily monitor your progress as you work through the lessons and complete the course. If you happen to fail a module, do not worry, you will be given the opportunity to retake after a little extra coaching. After 120 hours of online learning, you will experience 20 hours of teaching practice with workshop, lesson observations, lesson planning and observed teaching. Our training focuses on Peer coaching, a reflective approach to teacher development. Findings indicate that peer coaching facilitates exchange of teaching methods and materials, fosters development of teaching skills, and makes participants rethink their own teaching methods and styles. Our tutors will follow the INTESOL standards to correct your lesson plans and teaching with positive feedback. There are no final examinations. As soon as your last assignment has been graded you will be able to view your final grade in the grade book. Your final grade is calculated by taking the average of your ten grades for the ten assessed assignments. This will be the grade shown on your Certificate in TESOL with TEYL.
