Math in English Teaching Accreditation (META) is an introductory course in teaching Math to English-speaking students for candidates with little or no previous Math teaching experience as well as those with experience but little previous training. As the first qualification of its kind, META offers the work-study model in which the candidates get to actually work as Assistant Teacher to directly apply the knowledge and techniques that they learn from the program’s modules into real classroom situations. This approach intensifies and shortens the amount of time each candidate needs to prepare before pursuing a career in Math teaching.
The program runs once a year during summer from June to August for 14 weeks at Everest training centers in Ho Chi Minh City. It covers a wide range of professional trainings and hands-on activities so that, upon successful completion, the candidates are fully qualified and ready to teach Math in any English-speaking environment.
Key teaching skills and qualities that they gain includes:
- Understanding various international Math curricula and systems
- Learning the principles of effective Math teaching
- Practicing teaching techniques in real classroom context
- Building authoritative classroom presence
As META compresses the 18-month-process to become a Math teacher into 14 weeks, it certainly requires commitment at the highest level but, at the same time, will provide an amazing sense of achievement and a concrete foundation for candidates who are passionate about a career in Math teaching.
The 5 Learning Modules to be covered in META are:
- Understanding Math curricula, systems and teaching methodologies
- Creating engaging student-centered lesson plans
- Effectively managing students and their learning goals
- Applying theories of language presentation
- Presenting knowledge and concepts clearly across grade levels
- A Bachelors Degree with strong academic performance
- A certification of English proficiency (IELTS 7.0 or equivalent) if you are not a native English speaker
WHY META AT E2
Everest Education is the leading institution in Vietnam in teaching Math to students using international curricula. Recognizing the need for a qualification of Math teaching, our team of experts condensed years of experience in serving thousands of students from various international schools such as ISHCMC, BIS, SSIS, AIS, VAS, TAS, etc. and knowledge in teaching American, British and Singaporean Math programs to create META. Its content is based largely on teaching techniques, methodologies, and products that have been proven to be effective not only by our teachers but many students and their families. The fact that its Math program has grown for 23% within the past 12 months demonstrates how E2 continues to become a trustworthy partner to learners and international schools around Vietnam when it comes to Math study.
As E2 is incredibly proud of its Math program and META is the essence of everything that it has to offer, the content of META is constantly solidified and improved. The teachers that we train will not only be extremely skillful and knowledgable, but also possess growth mindset and a great sense of innovation. We aim at nothing less than the highest level of excellence in our teacher training program as we understand how impactful just one good teacher can be. We are determined to raise the standard for a “good” Math teacher to a new height and inspired to support as many candidates as possible to achieve such standard.
