||TEACHING KIDS.... EEEK!
"I have been teaching adults for three years now and the school where I am working is seeing a dramatic increase in the number of children enrolling for classes. This has meant that I have been asked to teach the bulk of my timetable to youngsters between 7 and 12 years of age.
I have absolutely no experience in teaching this age group and am at my wits end to know how to handle them, let alone teach them. Do you know of any shortcut to tooling me up quickly for this type of teaching?"

If you are concerned about divulging your home address in your resume,
consider using a post office box or similar forwarding address.

with the situation or the person/s you are dealing with, walk away. Also

Always let a friend know that you are attending an interview, when and
where. acquaint yourself fully with how to get to the interview and how
to get back.

If the job appears to be "too good to be true", it probably is. Fully
research the employer via web forums, search engines and previous
employees. Most reputable employers should be happy to put you in touch
with previous/current staff.
As previously stated, no reputable employer will ask you for money
(even for a visa, work-permit etc.). If a tefl.com advertiser does ask
you for payment, refuse and contact us immediately.
