An innovative TESOL/TEFL training course to help you work with students in a one-to-one setting as part of a mission placement. Including video, audio and written materials, this unique course allows you to study at your own pace, with up to 6 months to complete.


Ideal if:

  • you’re TEFL qualified and want to specialise in 1:1 teaching 
  • you're interested in freelance English teaching and want to know how to create bespoke lessons for students with various needs and maintain paying students
  • you’re looking to start up a Teaching English business for yourself
  • some of your teaching is likely to be with 1:1 adults
  • you’re already in a mission placement setting, where you are teaching 1:1

Why this course

Specific sections deal with one-to-one methodology, materials and resources, student motivation and how to set yourself up as a freelance one-to-one teacher in this fast moving sector of the TEFL industry. There is help from experienced TEFL professionals, as well as sections on making use of technology in your classroom and how to teach one-to-one with minimal resources.

Written by EFL professionals with a wealth of experience in planning and delivering practical one-to-one English classes, this course makes creative use of video, podcasts, images and text, with links to websites where you can find materials suitable for adaptation to the one-to-one classroom environment. 

During the course you'll be sourcing material for your own one-to-one lessons, thinking about course design and creating tailor-made lessons for your one-to-one students. Upon completion you will receive a Global English course certificate.
