Most instruction is one-on-one and there are many instructional, environmental and assessment accommodations made to the curriculum without modifying the curriculum expectations. Interns will get the opportunity to develop much closer relationships with the students than what is possible in a class of 25 students and thus be able to gauge almost instantly the effectiveness of their teaching methods. This internship would be a great experience for interns looking for something other than what they may have already experienced during their practicums.
