How do I sign up?

To sign up, simply fill out the following form, and we’ll get in touch right away! The process includes paying the fee, filling out a brief application and conducting a brief video interview (on your own time) to allow us to see who is going to be joining the sessions.

The application form includes the usual personal information, your teaching experience and your teaching goals. The interview will ask you 4 questions about your teaching style to get you to start thinking about teaching style before you enter the sessions. We want you to maximize the benefit of these sessions and know what to look for when you’re observing. Since you’re only going to be a silent observer, we want to make sure that you are looking at the right things from teaching style to lesson planning, persona, activities and student behavior.

How many sessions can I observe?

The number of hours available to purchase can be found in the form above. We assign you to one pair (student and teacher) to observe. You can purchase as many hours as you'd like.

The more hours you sign up for, the more you’ll be able to see a student’s progression. The hours you purchase must be completed within one month's time. They can’t be rescheduled or made up at a later time (unless the session is missed due to a student absence or otherwise).

Who will I be observing?

You will be observing those with online ESL teaching experience as they teach their students. You will not be able to choose whom to observe or their level of experience. We will be assigning you into sessions with people that have more online teaching experience than you. You will be a silent observer and will have strict instructions to stay hidden so as to not interrupt the session.

When will the sessions take place?

The sessions you will observe will be ongoing sessions at Nevy's Language. Our sessions are held at a consistent time on set days. For example, Mondays to Fridays at 3pm. In the intake form you will indicate your times of unavailability, and we will do our best to accommodate them. For example, if you are unavailable during the day because you work a 9-5 job, we will assign you to evening sessions. If your availability is sporadic, we will not be able to accommodate it, and any missed sessions that are assigned to you will not be made up.

Who can observe?

All beginners are welcome! Whether you have no experience, some experience or in-person experience (and want to see how things are done online), all is welcome. If this service provides value to you in any way, we are happy to help.

Other considerations

You have to turn off your camera and mute your mic for the entire session. The name you choose to enter the Zoom meeting with must be Nevy’s Language and nothing else. If we receive a complaint, you will lose access to the rest of your sessions.

If any of the above rules are violated, you will lose access to the remaining sessions and no amount will be refunded! This is a very delicate service we are providing, so we have a zero-tolerance policy for a lack of respect of the rules.
