Question 2 of 20
How often do you take work home with you?
Professional Answers Preview
"I make sure to utilize my work hours very efficiently so the only time that I take my work home is when there is an extremely stringent marking deadline. I would say that, overall, I take my work home maybe once per week. It's all about being diligent with your time in the classroom!"
The majority of teachers will work overtime hours or take work home with them on occasion. Talk to the interviewer about how frequently to take your work home.
More Answer Examples
Experienced Example
"I take my work home with me whenever it is necessary. Some teaching positions I have held, I work from home nearly every day. Other roles, such as my current position, I work from home just a couple of times per month."
Entry Level Example
"I fully expect, as a teacher, that I will take my work home on a regular basis. I understand it's par for the course when building a curriculum and a new teaching career."

Question 3 of 20
We are asking for 8 years of industry experience and you have just 5. Why do you think you are qualified for this position?
Professional Answers Preview
"Although I have 5 years' experience vs 8 years' experience I can absolutely do this job well. In my previous role, I was outperforming colleagues who had 12 years of experience. To me, it's all about drive and ability to be a quick study. I have all of these qualities and more."
To many employers, the number of years' experience is flexible - so long as you have the results to show for the years that you do have. Talk to the interviewer about your major career successes. This is the time to sell yourself. Make no apologies for your lack of years!
More Answer Examples
Experienced Example
"Along with my 5 years working as an adult educator, I have worked in related industries my entire career. Also, I hope that my masters degree gives me a little boost in experience over the required bachelor's degree for this opportunity."
Entry Level Example
"I may not have the desired years' experience; however, my experience does match all of your must-have's for this role. In addition to this, I have an elevated degree which accounts for a lot. I am confident in my ability to do this job very well."

Question 4 of 20
Give me an example of a time when you went above and beyond for a student or fellow teacher.
Professional Answers Preview
"Last week I noticed that one of my students needed some extra tutoring. He was struggling with a particular module. I offered to help him after class so that he felt more confident going into the next learning module. We worked together for a couple of hours that day and were able to catch him up on everything. It felt good to help."
Display to the interviewer that you are able to do more than just the bare minimum when it comes to the success of your students. Show that you are able to react appropriately when you see that your students need more from you.
More Answer Examples
Experienced Example
"I often go above and beyond what is expected of me. Most recently, I agreed to cover for a fellow teacher who was on short term medical leave. I worked 10 hour days for 2 weeks so that her work did not suffer any setbacks."
Entry Level Example
"I enjoy going above and beyond for my students. During my practicum I really observed some of the ways that I could go the extra mile for my students. I could do this in the way of offering practice tests, tutoring hours, and arranging study groups."

About ABE Teacher

September 2nd, 2017

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.
At your interview, the interviewer will want to know more details about your work experience. They will also ask you questions to gauge your suitability for the role. The key to a successful interview is to answer confidently and convince the interviewers that you are the best candidate for the job. One way to do this is by preparing your answers to some of the more commonly asked questions. You can find these listed at Mock Questions.
