Volunteers love our training!

"I found the ESOL Home Tutor training provided by ELP to be both professional and friendly. The ability of the teachers to structure the course so that we learnt everything required to be competent home tutors and not make us feel uncomfortable while doing so was outstanding.
I would and have recommended ELP to other people considering Home Tutoring."  Chris G.

ESOL teachers also train as volunteers

"Having taught English for nine years here and in Japan, I didn’t think I needed to do the ESOL home tutor training, but politely turned up anyway. As it turned out, I was very impressed with the training programme and learned to approach English teaching from a whole new perspective."
“As a trained English teacher with many years’ experience teaching high school students, what could I learn from the volunteer ESOL Home Tutor training course, I wondered? Plenty...!
