The Essential Qualities for Modern ESL Teachers - TEFL Blog


Mon, 20 Jan 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences The Essential Qualities for Modern ESL Teachers I believe teaching English is a very important job, one that has a large impact and takes great care to do well. As teachers, we are the vessel through which our students receive information and how we present it can have a great impact on what the students learn, how much they learn and how thoroughly they learn it. Part of what makes teaching so challenging is that all students learn differently, a strategy that may help one student, may not resonate with another. Therefore teaching requires not only that a teacher is engaging and effective for one student, but that they find ways to reach every student. I believe a big part of achieving this as a teacher is the personal qualities...  [Read more]
