EnglishClassViaSkype (formerly Break Into English) review
Formerly Break Into English, their new somewhat protracted domain name – EnglishClassViaSkype.com pay between $13 to $16.
Looking to branch into Asia, they teach both kids and adults using pedagogical approaches: constructivism, inquiry-based, reflective, collaborative and integrative.
Their ideology is to to maximize a students teaching time by keeping them constantly challenged through a series of debates, listening activities, action/phrasal verb exercises, telephoning, describing what you see etc. Reading and writing practice takes part mainly through homework assignments.
From a students angle they offer bespoke courses at 15.70 Euro’s a pop for 45 minutes – so you take 13 of that it seems.
They also offer a referral program to students, so for each student they refer who goes ahead and books 10 classes, in turn they receive one free class.
Trainee tutors undergo a training process that consists of grasping their BIE method so they are accustomed to using it fluidly and effectively.
Training only lasts 3 hours (1 hr prep + 2 hr of mock classes) alongside feedback from one of their instructors. You are not reimbursed for your training which takes place through Skype and email.
Scrolling through their current crop of foreign teachers they are a mix of all skin tones, ages and sexes, so positively progressive in comparison to many of the higher paying Chinese outfits, sadly.
