Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : June 8th 2017 Contents were alien to me until I started the training
course. During training, I definitely saw why
the observation process was necessary. One
of the best and most important parts of the
training was learning how to teach the vari-
ous skills of listening, speaking, reading and
writing and knowing the approach needed to
teach each of these skills effectively.
One of the highlights was when I had the
chance to teach my fellow trainees as if they
were Alta students. This experience was very
intriguing as we learned to work together just
as we will be doing in the Alta classroom.
Alta's founder, Paula Lucie-Smith and her
team of facilitators made many efforts to help
us feel relaxed and confident and this had a very
positive impact on how I feel about being in the
Alta programme. I would like to warmly and
deeply thank all trainees and my colleagues for
the unforgettable and enjoyable six sessions
that we spent together. Our journey has just

Becoming an Alta Tutor
Every year, between the months of April and
May, Alta runs a six-week training course for po-
tential tutors. The training course is known to be
intense but extremely beneficial for prospective
tutors, readying them almost completely for the
The theoretical aspect of the trainingis completed
in six sessions but the practical aspect is completed
over one academic year in Alta classrooms around
the country. At the end of this, the trainee is certi-
fied as an Alta tutor. One of Alta's trainees, Savita
K-Mohammed who attended the recently complet-
ed training course in San Fernando this year, put
pen to paper to share her experience with Alta over
the past six weeks.
My first experience with Alta started with an interview
at their San Fernando office. I could not understand how
I could be nervous and anxious for a position I was vol-
unteering for. Thankfully my interviewer's soft-spoken
and calm manner relaxed me. After a positive pass, the
next step was the observation process.
I had to observe an Alta class in action for eight ses-
sions. On day one at the Princess Town Library, I had
a huge learning experience. First, I didn't know how I
would feel, how to react to the students or how they would
react to me. They seemed quite intrigued by a new person
in their classroom and a burst of laughter broke the ice
when I mentioned how nervous I was. I instantly, went
from being anxious to feeling confident.
During the observations I was amazed at the meth-
ods and skills used in teaching. The Alta tutors were very
encouraging and enlightening. By the end of the eight
observation classes, I realised that the ability of the stu-
dents was a lot higher than I expected and their ability
levels also varied. They participated enthusiastically in
the lessons and those who completed their exercises with
ease helped others who lagged behind. In this way, the
tutors did not face the challenge of managing the large
At Alta, students follow a set process of learning and
move through these stages in a logical order. I observed
that the challenges of teaching go beyond the obvious
lesson planning, marking work and report writing. Alta
tutors are required to plan according to the various ability
levels of the students and anticipate the different respons-
es the students may have toward activities. The tutors
seemed to complement each other while teaching and
adapted the lessons for students of varying literacy levels.
