This is for those that only want to observe sessions. You can jump into sessions running at Nevy's Language and observe the learning in action.
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.
We follow our session durations and packages when adding you to observe. The number of sessions available to purchase can be found in the form and reflect the packages of sessions students carryout with us. You can purchase as many observation sessions as you want.
The more sessions you sign up for, the more you’ll be able to see a student’s progression. These sessions have to be completed in a month’s time. They can’t be rescheduled or made up at a later time. You will not be able to communicate with the teacher or the student in any of the sessions. You are simply a silent observer.
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 putting you into sessions with people that have more online teaching experience than you.
The sessions you will observe will be ongoing sessions at Nevy's Language. They may be held at any time of the day and any day of the week, we are not able to offer the choice of which sessions to join and what time or day in which they are held. Once we assign you to sessions, it is your responsibility to attend. There will be no make up sessions.
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.
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.
