Review of the One-to-One workshop/seminar on 5th May 2018

What a success! The room was full to the brim with many familiar faces keen to discover more about teaching on a one-to-one basis. 

Almost everyone had some experience in this type of class and every discussion was wonderfully experience-rich with practical advice floating around the room. As well as learning from the presenter, participants found they had a lot in common, and learned a great deal from each other.  

The day's programme touched on these areas: rapport and trust, differences between teaching groups and individuals, needs analysis, planning and reflecting, goal-based lessons, flexibility vs planning, the importance of dealing with emergent language, responsibility for learning, teacher 'hats', adapting materials, correction and upgrading. The follow-up session takes place on 12th May 2018.
