ABE teachers are Adult Basic and Secondary Education teachers. These specialist teachers are committed to teaching out-of-school youths or adults in remedial education classes, English as Second Language classes or preparatory classes for the GED test. They observe and evaluate students with different needs and abilities, and adapt regular teaching methods so they are customized to their students' requirements. They may instruct students individually or in a group setting and also prepare and administer tests and issue grades.
A bachelor's degree is the minimum educational qualification required to become an ABE teacher. Most employers will also require applicants to have considerable first-hand work experience. You can obtain the necessary work experience by completing an internship under the supervision of an experienced ABE teacher. ABE teachers must be creative, patient, and empathetic, with excellent communication, analytical and teaching skills.
