ESL teacher mentoring

TESL Toronto is testing out a new Mentorship Program for interested TESL Toronto members.

Running from September 2016 through to our annual conference in May 2017, matched up mentor/mentee partners will attend a strategically crafted series of events throughout the year to facilitate discussion and encourage connections.

Capacity will be based on the number of accepted applications received. Please read the application thoroughly before submitting as your commitment for the full term is required for a successful program.

Mentors and mentees will be matched according to the needs and strengths submitted on the application.
