Pirmkārt, tie ir bilingvāli cilvēki vai tādi, kuru angļu valodas zināšanas vērtējamas kā izcilas, jo viņi dzīvojuši angliski runājošās valstīs un ieguvuši multikulturālu pieredzi
Mūsu komandā ir vairāk nekā 50 pasniedzēju, kuri ir profesionāļi savās jomās, kuri aizrautīgi vada mācību procesu un izcili pārvalda angļu valodu.
Viņi ir izturējuši stingru atlases procesu trijos kritērijos:
Angļu valodas zināšanas
Zināšanas par mācību priekšmetu
Mums ir ļoti svarīgi, lai cilvēks būtu profesionālis savā jomā – spējīgs, jauns zinātnieks, talantīgs mākslinieks, doktorants – entuziasts, kas ir uzticīgs tam, ko viņš dara, un kas ar savu aizrautību spēj iedvesmot bērnus
Psiholoģisko un pedagoģisko testu rezultāti
Kandidāta sniegums intervijā mums ir svarīgāks par viņa pedagoģisko pieredzi. Visi kandidāti kārto sarežģītu pārrunu un testu sistēmu, ko izstrādājuši profesionāli psihologi, ar mērķi pārliecināties, ka kandidātam piemīt radošajam darbam ar bērniem nepieciešamās rakstura īpašības
Pēc visu atlases posmu nokārtošanas, kandidāti piedalās striktās profesionālajās un psiholoģiskajās apmācībās, kas palīdz orientēties dažādās pedagoģijas metodēs, lai vēlāk pasniedzējs spētu izvēlēties atbilstošu pieeju katram audzēknim
When I was a child, my dream job was dependent on my daily activities. When I came home from the
hairdresser, all my dolls had to change their hairstyles and I was their lead stylist; when I came home
from the dentist, all stuffed bears had to go through a dental exam administered by me. Since I went to
school more often than I had a dentist appointment, frequently I would dream about being a teacher.
And, of course, since I was a basketball player, an early goal was to become a WNBA player.
I didn’t choose Mathematics, Mathematics chose me. I always had a knack for solving most challenging
Math problems in lessons. When I realized that few people are as excited about Mathematics as I am, I
recognized I have a special relationship with the field and should utilize the opportunity.
My first “teaching” was tutoring my younger sister, then tutoring my study mates at the university and
finally, after graduation, doing private lessons with high-school students. I realized I love communicating
Mathematics and explaining it in a way that everybody can understand it, which finally led me to look
for a more formal job in teaching.
The best thing about being a teacher is the moment when you see understanding in student’s eyes after
they get a concept they have been struggling with before. That brief second when you can literally see a
spark go off in their eyes is why I teach.
I think that to become a professional teacher you also need to understand education, not just be a
subject matter expert. Thus, I think a teacher becomes a professional when he has deepened his
understanding in the field of education, knows how to deal with issues that arise in organization of the
study process and class management.
When I look back at my years of education, there were some amazing teachers who each had their way
of making me interested in a subject I may never had imagined I would fall in love with. I think it’s the
idea of inspiring others by building their confidence as they start to truly understand how learning the
language could help them express themselves playfully and professionally.
I’ve always had a natural curiosity how some can teach with such conviction and inspire others. Yet, my
education wasn’t directly related. It was an idea I’ve tinkered with but never took seriously. Until, that
was, I wanted to move to Latvia. I realised this was a chance so I studied CELTA to find out. I had no idea
at the time just how much difference it would become my new passion.
Teaching is my main job now, though since I started teaching, I slowly understood the connection
between communication through visual means (design & art) and language. I feel blessed that from time
to time, I get to write commissioned blogs and copywriting.
The best thing about teaching, to my mind, is having the chance to make a difference. Realistically, I
know this comes with a whole set of challenges. But the satisfaction I feel when I observe some students
grow and become empowered, regardless of age, is just priceless and irreplaceable.
I think that you become a professional teacher, when you’ve made enough mistakes that you’ve learnt
from. I’m not really sure what would be considered as professional but my guess is that it’s an effective
teacher who can tailor the lessons to the student’s specific needs at times on the spot.
