Our Minhou location is the only location at York English that currently practice co-teaching. This means you will alternate teaching each class with a local partner. There are still Teaching Assistants in each class, just like in our other locations and we are using the same curriculum. Some of the benefits of co-teaching are:
having an experienced partner as a co-teacher can mean there are two sets of hands trying to improve the class.
You can share experiences and ideas, building off each other’s successes with a class.
You get to see a greater variety of students.
