Advice on being a teacher?

Unread post by Puppet »

Hello all

My name is Joe and I am currently taking a Tefl course hoping to one day become an English teacher. My reasons are due to wanting to transition and try new things, and teaching has always been a part of my interests but do not know where to start.

As someone who is undertaking a teaching course, and not have enough confidence yet, is there any tips, advice and personal experiences that will help a newcomer along the way?
