Rennert's Diverse Teachers Bring A Class to Life
It is difficult to describe a typical instructor at Rennert. Each teacher brings a unique approach
to his or her classroom, drawing on a variety of training, experience and personal interests. What unites all the
instructors and makes them exceptional is their dedication to their students and their dynamic approach to
language learning using the R.E.A.L (Rennert's experiential approach to learning) method.
Rennert instructors are highly qualified native speakers. Many hold Master's in TESOL. Others have more than 15
years of experience teaching English as a second language. While all the teachers possess certification and
experience, many have come to English language teaching from other careers, from law to film, making Rennert
a dynamic meeting point for people of all ages, interests and professional backgrounds.
Each classroom is a small international community. Rennert instructors fit right in: Most teachers have traveled
or lived abroad, and most of them are language students themselves. They can relate to the students and help
them adjust to and take advantage of their stay in the U.S. It is a privilege, teachers often say, to facilitate
and learn from the rich cultural exchange that takes place every day in the classroom.
At Rennert we use the R.E.A.L (Rennert's experiential approach to learning) method - a special communicative approach
to language learning in all of our courses. From conversation to Future Professionals to TOEFL Success, we believe that
learning any grammar point or vocabulary item requires that a student understand these structures in a real-world context
and experience. By engaging their classes with relevant topics and interactive activities, Rennert instructors make the language learning
process meaningful and therefore successful.
