SARAH HEATHMAN

I was looking to make a career change when I signed up for the TESOL Cert course in January 2011.  I wanted to gain a qualification that would allow me to work and travel and I have certainly done that.  I now live and work in Hong Kong as a kindergarten teacher.  I’m enjoying every second of my new career and I couldn’t be more thankful to the entire SGI team for helping me to get here.

The course had been recommended by a friend and I was warned that it would be an intense few weeks with a large workload.  They weren’t wrong!  But it was completely worth it and I am still amazed by how much I learnt in four short weeks.  With no prior teaching experience I was hoping that I would enjoy the course and enjoy teaching, but by the end, I was delighted to discover I had found something I loved doing!

Taking this course was, without a doubt, one of the most positive learning experiences I have ever had.  The support and knowledge that all the teacher trainers impart is totally invaluable.  As a team they were so friendly and supportive that going into college, even when I was totally exhausted, was a pleasure.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course to anyone interested in developing or discovering their teaching skills.
