Date posted:2014-06-30 | Writer: Compass Education | Email: [email protected]

Compass Education has opportunities for TEFL certified teachers who are available for starts between June and September 2014. We operate a ‘Teacher Placement Program’ whereby local schools in and around Ho Chi Minh City can readily access highly qualified native level English teachers. If a school requires English teachers then we can also provide the curricula, the necessary resources and assessment procedures to deliver the right product. Our partnerships with various schools together with working in conjunction with TEFL International enable us to provide assorted opportunities for teachers. Variation and the tailoring of schedules by way of teaching at different schools can be rewarding. Interacting with students of diverse levels of English language competency is also interesting. We require enthusiastic, dedicated teachers who have authentic English pronunciation and who want a teaching position with a difference.

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.


I was kind of disappointed with the unit material. Maybe giving some more examples of games to use for certain lessons would have been more beneficial than a few pictures?. I don't think a teacher can go wrong with games and flashcards as it can be adapted as needed. It might be more difficult to teach teenagers as a lot of \"things\" are childish to them. I would prefer the young starters.These two videos are incredibly helpful and eye opening.We can clearly see the drastic difference between those two videos.Also in the second video we can see more of the teacher's positive attitude towards students that made them open up and participate regardless of their skills .In the first video we can see that the students are so confused and show no interest to participate in the lesson.
