Sarah was one of the best candidates on the recent SGI part-time certTESOL
(15 Sept to December 2015). All aspects of her teaching were outstanding.
Her planning was thorough and imaginative. Her lesson delivery was clear
and engaging. All Sarah`s lessons had clear linguistic aim which were
invariably achieved. She was very aware of student needs and tailored her
lessons accordingly. Her classroom management was also excellent.
Sarah`s written projects were of a particularly high standard. These
included tests in grammar and phonology and an individual student profile,
which involved analysing the needs of a particular student, designing a
lesson and teaching this lesson one to one. Sarah was a good team worker
and got on well with tutors, colleagues and students. She is a very
likeable person and would be just as good as a class or individual tutor.
SGI certTESOL does not involve young leaners, but I have no doubts about
Sarah`s suitability for this type of work. SGI would employ Sarah and I
would not hesitate to recommend her for employment.
