After working with hundreds of students in a school setting for more than 20 years, Louise Borden founded Best Fit English to work with ESL students individually. She became a certified ESL Exam Prep Coach, Level 1, through English Success Academy’s training and certification program and signed up for the Bridge Page that is funneling students towards her. Read about her experience below.
“I recently completed the How to Teach Exams Level 1 training with Jaime Miller at the English Success Academy. Although I have been teaching ESL students of all ages and levels for many years, I did not have sufficient knowledge about the TOEFL exam to feel comfortable teaching it to my online students. I found the 16-week workshop conducted by Jaime as well as the interaction with ESA materials and other participants very useful. After each session, I was able to put to use many of the strategies and techniques that we discussed in the online sessions immediately.
Now that I have completed the training, I set up a Bridge Page with the English Success Academy so that prospective students looking for a qualified TOEFL tutor can link to my website. Since the Bridge Page was published, I have noticed a huge increase in requests for information and several students booked lessons right away. The How to Teach Exams training and the Bridge Page have definitely been a worthwhile investment in my online teaching business, as I now have a full roster of exams students and the skills and confidence to work with all of them effectively.”
