Hi there. I have a BA in Philosophy and Religion (double major) and a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have one year of experience teaching Oral English at a university in southern China, and one year volunteer teaching part-time at an adult language school for immigrants in Minneapolis. My goal is to find a paid position like that volunteer position: teaching ESL in the US. I'm interested in a Masters, and have recently started looking at online programs. (I'm currently unemployed and could just go to an on-campus program; however this year I missed the deadlines for financial aid, and next year, ESL programs in my area don't seem to start until fall, which leaves a time gap that I don't like.) On this forum, I see great heaps of information regarding online programs and their cost. But I'm wondering how you all propose that I should use that information. I know I can contact as many schools as I like, but I'm not comfortable relying solely on what I'm told by people who are working to persuade me to buy in to their program. And, maybe I'm just daft, but as great as your lists of programs and there costs are, I don't see a comparable part of the forum where you all come together and discuss the relative quality of those programs. If such a thread doesn't exist, can you tell me what sites or rankings you prefer to use when it comes to evaluating and comparing the quality of different programs? Thanks.
