Career Coaching

It's a good thing to have questions. It's even better to get them answered. Ask a teacher, and get advice straight from the source. Attend group sessions or talk one-on-one.

Schedule a Coaching Session

What’s teaching like day-to-day? How do I get certified to teach? Which teaching program is right for me?

If you’re thinking about becoming a teacher, you might have some questions. And there’s no better way to get answers than to talk to an expert.

The beauty of developing relationships with teachers is that you can ask questions specific to your own situation and get advice that works for your unique path.

Here are a few ideas:

  • What’s your favorite thing about teaching, and what’s the most challenging?
  • What do you wish someone had told you before you started teaching?
  • What should I look for in a teaching program?
  • Which tests do I need to take to get certified, and when should I take them?
  • What resources do you recommend, like books, articles, podcasts or websites?
