Key Information About Crystal Clear ESL

My purpose-built curricula supports online English language teachers. Use my grab-and-go lesson plans to minimize your prep time and maximize your income, all while delivering beautiful, content-rich, high-quality lessons to your students.

Anyone can create a lesson, but step-by-step, language curricula? Leave that to the professionals! I not only hold an undergraduate degree in English, but am also a qualified secondary school teacher (QTS) specialising in English Language studies. I have taught over 10,000 students to date, including in public and private classrooms in Japan, and 3,000 (and counting) online classes. I continue to use, test and improve the materials on a daily basis and appreciate all feedback about typos.

I am pleased to offer the lower four levels within the step-by-step General Curriculum, which are now available for online delivery. I’ll be working over the next months to complete levels one through four with an aim of doing so by Christmas 2021.

While a fantastic course of 50 themed Business English lessons is already on offer, look for a dynamic, interactive platform update of these, coming soon!

Also coming soon is Crystal Clear ESL’s first content hosting feature! Welcome Daniel Teacher and IELTS Made Simple, a course of 20 lessons complete with homework and assessment, launching in September 2021. I am very open to other complimentary hosting opportunities; if you’re a curriculum developer with some great step-by-step material to share, please get in touch!

Finally, I plan to start creating the General Curriculum levels five through seven early in 2022, so join my newsletter for exciting launch updates!

My curricula are carefully assembled to cover every milestone of English language acquisition, from complete beginner through to fluent user of English. I segment the material into manageable units of study, with plenty of built-in interaction, repetition and activities to ensure no student is left behind.

Start your students at their comfort level and ensure their progress with regular, built-in assessments. Not only will the assessments measure your students’ achievement, but they’ll provide regular opportunities to feedback with confidence and in detail to your client, enhancing your professional stature. I am constantly looking to improve and welcome your suggestions for developing assessment tools on the platform.

Not only can you give us a test run, but your students can too! Use my free trial lessons (available on the Home page) to get a feel for our online products, before you commit to a subscription. Continue to use them again and again to expertly recruit new students. Professional teachers can additionally use our trial lessons to evaluate students’ levels – they are the perfect placement tool for students new to our course!

Whether you are a casual tutor or professional online teacher, I want my online products to be accessible to everyone. I offer our courses in discrete bundles, so you only pay for those you need. The best part: use the materials for as many students, as many classes and as many times as you like each month, all within one simple subscription (Terms and Conditions apply). The pricing packages will grow and change as our course offering does, but current subscriptions will be ‘grandfathered in’ and Iwill always keep Crystal Clear ESL teachers at the heart of my pricing.

Using our courses and lesson plans couldn’t be easier! Simply subscribe to the required course, schedule your class over an interactive virtual platform of your choice, such as Zoom, click the first lesson plan in the series and off you go! Once you get the hang of my style, you probably won’t even need to prep! My lesson plans are designed to open in full screen, giving your classes that professional look. They are optimized to integrate seamlessly with the interactive features common to virtual classrooms, including a blank slide to use as you wish at the end of each lesson. For further ideas on how to adapt my classes and deliver them interactively, please watch out for my instructional video posts in ‘Resources’!

Once you have subscribed to the course or bundle that is right for you, use your private portal to teach those lessons as many times as you like, to as many students as you like (Terms and Conditions apply) for the duration of the subscription term! It is that easy!

There is no commitment! Make changes to or cancel your subscription at any time, ensuring you do so seven days before your payment date to make sure the automatic billing system has sufficient time to amend or deactivate your next payment. Unfortunately changes or cancellations made less than seven days before your payment date will not qualify for a refund.

Because of the incremental learning provided within the General Curriculum, it is difficult to precisely pinpoint a unit or lessson number at which your students will progress from one CEFR band to the next. Roughly speaking, we suggest the following matches:

pre-A1: Levels One and Two

A1: Levels Three and Four

A2: Levels Four and Five

B1: Levels Five and Six

B2: Levels Six and Seven
