    Question What an ESL teacher needs for a home school? Please, help!!!

    Dear colleagues,

    Here is the deal. One of my friend who is a teacher too is about to start her home teacherís business to teach English to little kids in her house (ESL education + a day care) with my participation. This business although being a trend in the country is rather new in our particular town. And we both are a little overwhelmed with what to get for a better teachersí and studentsí experience. So I would really appreciate if you could share your experience on arranging this kind of a home school. Like what is to be available in teaching rooms, which equipment is the most practical, what tools are indispensable for a home-based educator, which ESL books are considered the best in the industry or for you personally. Any contribution is appreciated as we want to start a perfect business to attract parents (clients) right at the outset.

    Thanks for helping inexperienced teachers here!

    Some dedicated space, a whiteboard/flipchart, a computer hooked up to the internet (preferably) and comfortable seating would be a good start.
