I started doing the modular Delta with Teaching House in 2015. Being able to take breaks between modules and doing some of it on-line was clearly what made it possible for me to take the most from the course. The platform Teaching House provides was really helpful and all my tutors were supportive, available and willing to do their best to help me learn, grow and, obviously, pass. I have a strong feeling that I wouldn’t pass anything if I had worked on my own…
Having the Diploma is a very good thing, but going through the process of observing peers, analyzing your own teaching, finding new ways of helping students so intensively is something you only get when taking the course. It may feel like twice as much work (or more…), but that’s when I felt I’ve improved the most. Before my presential lessons at Teaching House NY, I had only taught monolingual classes in my hometown in Brazil and I knew I needed to be challenged with something different. The course was well structured, my Tutors Lise and Paula were extremely competent (I kind of felt that just by looking at them on day 1 !) and I have nothing but gratitude for their dedication.
My very strong advice would be to sign up for the presential course if possible. But whichever way you decide, you will be sure to have very good support and guidance from your tutors.
