We wish to make each of your classes useful, interesting and enjoyable!
Our teaching methodology is among the most advanced in the world and draws from many sources, as well as many years of experience in education. A teacher, writer and experienced educational consultant from the United States, Whitman’s Director William Marrapodi has designed an approach to learning in response to the specific needs of Chilean students of English.
Our teaching methodology has proven very effective in Chile and is premised upon one simple idea: The teacher has the primary responsibility in the learning process and must first establish conditions of emotional safety for each student. It is from this “location” that the student’s attention can be engaged sufficient to create new areas of cognition, i.e., English language skills development.
Whitman operates within a strict system of Quality Managementand has been certified by the Chilean National Employment and Training Service (SENCE). Each of our courses has met the requirements of Norma Chilena 2728 and has been designated with aSENCE code, enabling efficient administration through the government’s support system for English language training. (Currently, we are also preparing for an upcoming international certification viaISO9001.)
Our staff is experienced in working directly with OTICs, SENCE and human resource personnel on all levels, and is well trained to assist you in a polite and friendly manner. Most importantly, everyone at Whitman is committed to your continuous improvement in the study of the English language!
