I was quite worried about getting a job as an English teacher, even though I’m proficient, I’m a non-native English speaker. I’ve heard too many stories about how non-native speakers need not apply!
Vantage quickly put me at ease. They have their own dedicated jobs coach. Not only did the help me in creating a Power Resume, but I was also coached on interviewing techniques and specifically how to handle the NNES objection. They also reached into their network and I secured an interview and hired with a short time after graduation. The good news got better as this school isn’t far from my home.
The entire Vantage training team is highly professional. Their expertise was more than helpful in turning my initial hesitation about teaching English into a budding self-confidence.
I lot of this was developed ‘on stage’ in a real classroom. I had 7 hours of observed teaching to non-English speaking students. The feedback I got after each teaching session was crucial in building my confidence so I could live to teach another day.
My classroom experience was a huge component in the development of my teaching skills
I can’t say enough about my experience at Vantage. If you’re looking to learn how to teach at a highly successful level, you’ve found the right place.
