Prospective online students are naturally curious about who their online teacher will be:
Who will my online teacher be?
All our online lesson teachers are professionals who have significant teaching experience and usually speak reasonable English. We interview new teachers online before accepting them, and brief them thoroughly regarding what our clients need and expect. In the unlikely event there is anything (at all) that you’re not happy with, our teaching admin team is your first point of call. Whatever the problem is, they’ll sort it out for you.
Why can’t I choose my own online teacher?
“I’d like to get to know your teachers before I decide to take lessons with you. Why don’t you publish a directory of your teachers with photos and some biographical information, so I can choose?”
We run a successful online teaching businesses precisely because we don’t rely on students to select their teacher from a line-up of the usual suspects. Walk into any professional language school in the world and they will assign you a teacher that they trust to deliver the service you are paying for – entirely without your input on who that should be. That’s their job. In contrast, use an online platform (there are many) and the responsibility is entirely yours.
Does the online teacher speak English?
It’s one of our requirements. But we’d strongly advise you not to use English as the ‘lingua franca’ for your lessons, as that rather defeats the point. Start in Italian (or whichever language you’re learning), continue the same way. It might feel strange at first, but you’ll soon get used to it.
Changes of online teacher
Our policy is to leave a student with their teacher, especially when they renew, unless students themselves request a change (which is fine!) But we can’t guarantee that the teacher will always remain the same – sometimes switching teachers may be unavoidable. As with any language school, teaching staff come and go. Younger teachers may be offered their dream job elsewhere, others may have to reduce their commitments for family or other reasons. When that happens we will let you know when and why the change will take place, and put you in contact with your new teacher. Our teaching management team will be available to help smooth the transition, if necessary.
What if it’s the student that wants to change teacher?
That’s fine. Just let our teaching admin team know and they can organise that for you.
Can I work with multiple teachers at the same time?
If you think that would be helpful, why not? Let the teaching admin team know your preferences.
