Our teachers are the heart of Helen Doron English.
We are very proud of our teachers. Their daily interaction with students brings to life the unique Helen Doron Method for learning English as a second language (ESL). Our teachers bring to the lessons fun, creativity, and a love of learning that kids so naturally relate to. With their guidance, learning English becomes a delightful experience, that not only serves them well throughout their lives, but also provides fond memories to cherish forever.
Helen Doron English teachers receive intensive training in the proven method for teaching English to children. Once qualified, they join a worldwide network of elite Helen Doron English teachers dedicated to making a positive difference in the education of their pupils.
Words from Teachers
“I give my students a lot of freedom to be who they are, and I praise them for their contribution to the class. That’s what positive reinforcement means. I have seen shy, problematic kids bloom during the course of a year with us.”
“I was and still am happy to be part of the Helen Doron magic. If a year ago somebody told me that I would run my own Helen Doron English classes in a little, high-mountain town of about 6,000 citizens, I probably would not have believed it.”
“It really helped my self-confidence. My teacher was a very nice person. I very much liked to talk to him as a person, not only as an English teacher.”

Words from Teachers
“Helen Doron English is today the top and leading programme in the world not just because of its methodology, not just because of its materials, but because we have the TOP TEACHERS!”
“I have been a Helen Doron English teacher for 7 years. . . . I knew I wanted to teach children a foreign language, but I didn’t know how. School was so rigid and boring, and in contrast, I discovered this wonderful method where children learn just by playing and enjoying themselves. I still think it is just amazing!”
