Even though most Americans speak English, it’s a core subject taught in schools because many people have trouble with reading, writing and comprehension. You will need these skills in order to succeed in college and beyond. If you’re looking to teach English to junior high and high school students, you’ll need to meet some strict standards, especially if you live in Michigan. The state of Michigan has high standards for academics and therefore requires that aspiring educators become certified by taking the MTTC English Exam.
