A school is only as good as its teachers, yet it is common practice for schools to hire teacher’s right out of industry and put them in the classroom after one day of training. That is about as safe as putting your sixteen year old in the driver's seat of your new car after only talking to them about being a good driver. Teachers are entrusted with thousands of dollars of equipment and dozens of tuition-paying students who leave or stay in the school depending on the quality of the teachers and administrative staff. We are prepared to custom-design workshops and activities for your instructors' professional development, including:

• Developing appropriate classroom teaching strategies and techniques for practicing with your students.
• Designing techniques for enhancing information and skill transfer efficiency and effectiveness
• Assisting with course planning and preparation
• Providing guidance in creating useful course materials
• Helping design assignments and exercises that further course objectives and encourage student participation.
• Designing student learning assessment systems, tests and activities.

We look forward to working with you in improving your school.
