Progressive Learning Institute has had the privilege of educating and guiding students of all ages. In fact, the need for critical learning skills manifests at a very young age. It is no mistake that the earlier progressive education can be demystified, the better chance the student will have at excelling in the future. More importantly, PL Institute educators know that every student’s interpretation of information is unique. It is paramount that an educator recognizes this and caters to the individual with that insight.
We are proud to recognize that education is an extremely layered process. Often, people unfortunately assume that learning can be achieved by sheer repetition or discipline. These mundane and outdated concepts do not properly reach students on a fundamental level. Education should be comprehensive. The hope is that no matter what the students are learning, the experience should be purposeful.
We are looking for an ESL tutor who is patient, empathetic, kind, professional, and thoroughly experienced. A fitting candidate must be able to teach ESL and/or foundational English from grade school to first/second year university level.
We are firm believers that students who seek additional help need encouraging learning environments to feel motivated to learn. Too often, educators are solely focused on the material and insufficiently attentive to the human being behind the lesson.
We advocate progressive learning where perfection is never the goal. What we strive to do is help the student(s) feel more confident in the subject in order to make lasting improvements. We want our students to feel empowered and sure above all else.
