Ten Effective Tips To Help TEFL Teachers That Are Feeling Tired

Thailand – March 4, 2016 – No matter how much you love your profession, there will always be days when it can get quite overwhelming. The fact is that when you constantly do the same thing every single day, chances are you would get tired of doing it. The same goes with TEFL teachers. No matter how much they love teaching English to their non-English speaking students, they can also get exhausted or tired especially when they have an overwhelming workload. But if you are a TEFL teacher and you get tired of your work, it doesn’t mean that you should give it up. You just have to rethink your working strategies and renew your passion.

Here are some tips to help tired TEFL teachers.

  1. Tidy your desk. If you are feeling exhausted from all the work and you can’t seem to think properly, then maybe it is time to clean out your desk. Having a cluttered working space can definitely add to the stress that you are feeling. Allocate 30 minutes of your time cleaning out all of the unnecessary junk on your table or desk. Just leave out all the important items and sort them out.
  2. Make your lessons more fun. Whenever you are working on your lesson plan, make sure that it is centered on your students. Add a little bit of fun into your lesson so that your students will become more engaged to learn. When your students have fun, you too will start to enjoy the class. Seeing your students learn and have fun can work wonders on you.
  3. Get a new perspective. If you are feeling a little tired, then maybe it is time to look at things much differently. Come up with a different teaching approach. Observe your colleague’s teaching styles. Find out how they differ from you and what you can do to make yourself better.
  4. Brainstorm fresh ideas. Make an activity grid to make sure that you have tons of great activities for you and your students to do. Seek help from your colleagues and brainstorm ideas together. Remember, the more engaged you are in TEFL Thailand, the less tired you’ll be.
