“How to Teach Exams” Course

It’s hard for you to know if your tutor knows how to teach exams like TOEFL iBT or IELTS. The purpose of this page is to help you assess the qualifications of the tutor who you are considering studying with.

You may be surprised to discover this, but the industry for English as a Second Language (ESL) is highly unregulated. In the area of preparation for exams like TOEFL iBT and IELTS, there is even less regulation and quality control.

Anyone can say they are a “TOEFL teacher” or an “IELTS teacher.” Unfortunately, at schools from America to Taiwan, it is common for schools to hire teachers who have 0 hours of training for ESL exam preparation. A teacher’s bravery is often the main qualification in getting a job teaching ESL exams.


Comparing Tutors’ Options for Getting Experience

Only very dedicated teachers choose to enroll in organized training programs. Here are some of the available training programs.

Amount of Training Organization & Training Name
4 hours ETS’s “Propell Teacher Workshop for TOEFL iBT”
20 hours Canadian College’s “Teaching TOEFL Preparation Certificate”
40 hours Oxford Seminars’ “Teaching TOEFL Specialization Module”
90 hours English Success Academy & Jaime Miller’s Course “How to Teach Exams”

As you can see in the chart above, there is a lot of variation in the depth of training that is offered for ESL exam preparation.
