What We Do

ELL Made Simple currently provides online professional development and coaching that specifically recognizes the challenges that teachers are facing as they have shifted to a digital environment. We also understand the additional challenges that teachers may face when providing a virtual education experience directly to EL students.


3 Steps to Success

The key to successful language acquisition and high-level student engagement for EL students is ensuring that the learning environment is seen as a variable rather than a barrier. ELL Made Simple's virtual PD cohorts follow a 3-stage process to give teachers the confidence and competence they need to become fluent virtual teachers.
