The criteria for instructor selection at North America Technical Institute ESL (NATI ESL) is specific: professional competence in the areas of instruction offered by the school, proven ability and dedication as a teacher, and commitment to the educational aspirations of a diversified student body. NATI ESL instructors combine the best of two worlds—years of academic training with years of professional work experience. They are dedicated to the mission and vision of the school, knowledgeable in ESL, and interested in the continuing language development of their students. Added to their professionalism and experience is one key factor: their willingness to assist students in attaining individual goals. Student evaluations of instructors assist NATI ESL in maintaining quality instructors as does the school’s emphasis on continued professional development.
