eTeacher’s virtual classes are conducted via live video conferencing. Students can see the teacher through a web cam. They can talk with the teacher and other class members using a complimentary headset & microphone from eTeacher. The lesson materials are presented via a multimedia application on each student’s computer screen.

With eTeacher, you learn online in small groups or in private sessions (one-on-one). Classes are scheduled based on students' locations, time zones, and personal preferences. The group classes are based on one of two intensity levels, depending on the needs of the group. For the higher intensity program, classes take place twice weekly, while the lower intensity course is comprised of one class per week. Students may submit homework and learn new words before each class. The private program (one-on-one tutoring) allows students to progress at a pace and intensity suited to their personal skill level.
Using eTeacher’s advanced technology, you can now enjoy learning from the best teachers without leaving the comfort of your own home. All of our teachers undergo comprehensive training courses to prepare them for online teaching. After each session, students are asked to rate the lesson, enabling us to maintain our standard of teaching excellence.
