Read previous students’ final reports:
“Before I knew it I was completely comfortable substituting, carrying out teaching responsibilities solo, and answering questions that a teacher would answer. As a result my self-confidence grew tremendously, enough to the point where I feel comfortable entering my career field.”
– Whittney Makepeace, Oregon State University
“During the first couple weeks I mostly assisted Juan Carlos, only really interacting with students on an individual basis unless I was reading aloud (a native speaker is important to hear). After I had mostly learned the students’ names, I began teaching while Juan Carlos observed me, and shortly after that, began teaching classes on my own. I most enjoyed doing listening and reading exercises, but the books we used everyday were surprisingly fun, so even the grammar lessons could hold the students’ attention.”
