Kings summer is a thriving division of Kings Education. Each year we recruit for a number of roles to work in our Residential Summer Centres, and in non-Residential posts in our year-round schools.

Students attending our summer schools receive a combination of English language tuition and a comprehensive programme of activities and excursions. We are now looking to recruit enthusiastic, professional EFL Teachers for work starting in late June/early July.

Our New York Residential Summer Center is located on the safe, attractive campus of Concordia College in the affluent village of Bronxville.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.

 

This unit contained a general overview of the various parts of speech that make up a sentence. It also drilled down into the various parts (i.e. Adjerctives - comaparatives - superlatives). In each section it gave relevant words, examples of usage and exceptions etc.. It was very comprehensive but did state that some parts of speech would be looked at again later due their complexity.I learned how to make lesson plan and how it is important to have a lesson plan. It was so helpful that it provided me with the samples of the plan and it also provided me with the self evaluation form. I did not know that I also need to do self evaluation but after reading the outline I realized that it is also part of important things. I wish to teach students better after this lesson.
