TTELT: Teaching Tips for English Language Teachers

TTELT (Teaching Tips for English Language Teachers) is a program of the Rhoades Education Foundation, consisting of podcasts, YouTube channel, workshops, and Professional Development courses for English Language (EL) teachers. Podcast episodes include quick tips that can be implemented in your classes, immediately. In each Episode, we share our own tips for engaging your students and interview expert EL teachers. We focus on one topic per episode/podcast, so that you can choose the episodes that will benefit you and your students most.

Our founder, Dr. Gena Rhoades, created TTELT because, as a fellow teacher and teacher-trainer, she recognizes the need for ongoing professional development. In today's world, English is a gatekeeper to employment, globally. English teachers know how important it is to be well-trained, offering the best for their students to learn English, competently, to obtain future employment.

The Research Shows

Research (OECD, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2013) consistently states the importance of ongoing teacher training and development.
