Welcome to TESOL Planet!
We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced essay-writing coach to help our IELTS students prepare for the writing part of the IELTS exam.
IELTS (an exam that students take to study or immigrate to English-speaking countries) requires test-takers to write a 250-word essay in 40 minutes on a given topic (e.g.
A person’s worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honour, kindness and trust, no longer seem important.
To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.
Since our clients are not native speakers of English and come from cultures with different writing norms and genres, they usually struggle with writing essays. Therefore they need help with learning to plan, organise their thoughts, write good introductions with a clear thesis statement, structure good paragraphs with good topic sentences and supporting details, writing a good conclusion, etc. They also need ESL instruction in grammar, articles, vocabulary, etc.
If you are a person who has experience with writing instruction to ESL/ ESOL students and who enjoys essay writing, we’d love to have you on board.
A bit about the school:
We are an online English school that provides one-to-one customized English lessons to (mostly) professionals from Russia and Ukraine. The school was founded in 2007 and has a solid reputation among students/teachers.
We don't believe in 'one-size-fits-all' approach, and therefore don't' have a set curriculum. Instead, our teachers have the freedom to design and customize lessons to meet the needs of a particular student. So working with us suits those teachers who enjoy an intellectual challenge of analysing the strengths and weaknesses of a particular student and tailoring lessons to these needs.
So, if you are not keen on the 'sausage factory' approach of many online schools that require you to follow set lessons plans, then working with us might be just the thing that you are looking for!
