Our Method:

GnoKids uses an entirely original, detailed curriculum. We have original textbooks and videos for homework. Our classes are based around Project Based Learning, meaning lessons are structured around a project theme to give context to the language we’re teaching. We strongly believe in ‘learning through doing’ and our classes are very hands on.

 

At GnoKids, our ideal is true team-teaching. Classes have two teachers who should be equally involved in teaching a successful lesson. Having two teachers provides chances to model natural English exchanges to the students, create a fun atmosphere, and give the students more individual attention. We have small class sizes, with a maximum of 10 students per class and maintain a 1:5 teacher to student ratio to maximize students’ opportunity for production and teacher interaction.

 

Part-Time positions also available.
