Teaching

How many students do I teach in each class?

All Ensquare classes are one-on-one to ensure we meet 100% of each student’s needs.

Do I need to prepare for lesson materials?

Yes, especially prelevel teachers. Although Ensquare curriculum team has already designed materials for every class, teachers are expected to prepare prelevel lessons for the handcraft materials. Also, teachers must prepare for class by reviewing the class materials beforehand to ensure we deliver the high quality classes.

Do teachers always teach the same students?

Yes, Ensquare teachers will have fixed students to better track students’ progress and ensure teachers are familiar with students.

Do teachers need to communicate with students' parents?

No. Ensquare staff will communicate with students’ parents.

How long is each class?

Every class is 25 minutes. However, we leave 5 minutes for you to write feedback for students right after the class.
