Teacher training courses are conducted much like the Helen Doron English classes. They are fun, held in small groups in a responsive and engaging environment, and are designed to expand trainees’ joy in teaching.
Candidates can choose to become Helen Doron Early English (HDEE) teachers or Helen Doron Teen English (HDTE) teachers, depending on their preferences and previous teaching experience. For teachers who have successfully completed the full five-day HDEE course, a short two-day seminar focusing on HDTE is available.
Length of Courses
The HDEE and HDTE Teacher training courses are each five-days. Each one is divided into 2 stages. First is a two-day introduction and evaluation. Candidates have a chance to take a closer look at the materials and methodology while trainers evaluate participants. After day two, suitable candidates advance to the second stage, which includes and in depth understanding of the methodology, practical demonstrations, and written assignments.
All Helen Doron Early English teacher trainers are professionals with proven competency and years of experience teaching the unique Helen Doron English method to new teachers.
Trainees must complete the course requirements in order to graduate. In addition to the course participation hours, a minimum of one hour prep time is required each evening outside of class to prepare for the next days’ lesson.
