We Tutor You works with students who are interested in both development and enhancement programs. Our development programs allow students to grow in their academic endeavors through tutoring that addresses whatever an individual may be struggling with. Once they've excelled in our developmental education programs, students are ready for enhancement programs that encourage individuals to go above and beyond their academic level. There's a program for everyone at We Tutor You – call today to get started.
Do not expect your students to be English majors. Understand that they don't all share the love of reading and writing and all things literary. If you understand that; if you meet them where THEY are (not where you expect or want them to be); if you are flexible with your time and your resources; and if the curriculum is not always the stuff the kids NEED to know, you'll be just fine. Also, keep granola bars in your desk drawer for the kids who didn't get breakfast (or for when you forget your lunch on the kitchen counter), let students stand up and move around a lot - literature is really, really boring for some (I know, weird, right?), and even honors students can try your patience daily.
For people looking for information on how to teach English online, the process can often be intimidating. There are seemingly countless online teaching jobs out there with different rates of pay, requirements, and students. While many schools and jobs are straightforward, we have received more than a few messages complaining about how the details seem to change from one job to the next.
Answer: Teachers in public schools must typically hold state certification and subject area endorsements in English language and literature. Many states offer alternative pathways to certification for career switchers or those who hold a bachelor’s degree that did not include coursework in teaching. Your state Board of Education or college program can provide further details on certification requirements specific to your state. You can also check out our traditional certification and alternative certification guides.
Is there a place in the world you have always wanted to visit? A culture that has always triggered your curiosity? This is your chance to expose yourself to that culture and contribute in the most meaningful way possible. The teaching projects require a commitment of at least one month. You can easily stay longer which will give you the chance to build a more profound relationship with the students but also start to understand the culture in a completely different way than you would as a tourist. Have you always wanted to learn Spanish or Chinese? What are you waiting for? This is your chance to make that dream reality and start as a volunteer teacher in a country where you can learn a new language as well!

'Module 5: Online Assessment Strategies' discusses the notions of formative and summative assessment in online contexts. We will also explore benefits and considerations that you'll need to keep in mind if you're considering adopting an online assessment strategy in your own teaching, and how using technology can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the assessment process.
