Steps

Stage 1
«Life BEFORE» or «How I became a teacher in Skyeng»

We all have one thing in common — we work in a cool English school. But what was “before”? Where did you work before? What experience have you gained? How did you hear about Skyeng and decide to join our team?
Maybe you have traveled around the world, worked in the University of Physics, volunteered, or taught English to children in China?

Maximum possible score for the first stage — 80

Stage 2
Working with student’s goals

When starting lessons with a new student, a teacher will certainly ask, “What do you need English for? What’s your goal?”
The whole further learning process depends on the answer. To identify a real student’s goal and motivate him to achieve great results is the task for real pros.

Stage 3
Working in a team

In this stage you can decide which variant out of two you want to complete. The points only for one variant will be taken into account.
We want every teacher to choose the task they like.

  1. Show your town
  • We work remotely that’s why it might sometimes feel like we are all alone in the whole world. But it isn’t true! We make common cause side by side with like-minded people in dozens of countries and hundreds of cities.
  • We suggest our teachers to team up and tell us about their cities. Unusual sightseeings, the best places to work remotely, must-visit and just your favorite spots in town — tell us about it in the video.
  1. Hold a workshop
  • We are absolutely sure every teacher has unique professional experience in his possession. It’s time to start sharing!
  • We suggest you speak as an expert and share your most interesting and valuable knowledge in the world of teaching with your colleagues.
