Hi, everyone. Long time no blog, but I’m still teaching. I’ve been working most days and I was able to take a vacation for about 7 days. 🙂 I’m planning a review video of my latest adventure on my fun2test blog very soon.
Summer was a great time to get students, because I got to teach every other night a couple of classes. Peak times run from 9pm -10am EST every day from July-August !!! I even got Sunday Night classes although VIPKID did recommend it. 🙂 I made over $1000 in July because of the option to have night classes and catch up on the classes I was going to miss. I can plan better for next summer as well.
VIPKID even introduced there new summer classes. The TESOL classes were very different with a lot of independence on the child’s part. Very little talking from the teacher. It was for them to observe, do, reteach if necessary. Then at the end a free talk. That was fun! Then they had summer camp, which allowed younger and less experienced students to freshen up on free talk skills and some fun topics to cover.
At this moment, I have a 4.96 apple standing with 92 parent feedback reviews. This is so important and so many parents forget to give you a rating. I try to think of creative ways in my feedback in order to get the parents to give me feedback back. 🙂 My apples are so important to me.
I had a 5 apple rating up to my vacation, but I accidentally was too tired from my cruise and started yawning in class and rubbing my eye subconsciously. Oops! It will take me now 100 feedbacks to get my 5 apples back. 😦 But I’m trying hard and doing different teaching techniques that I saw from Nancy Taylor recently, to get more students to sign up and stay with me.
Most of my students are regulars now! Yippee. I love my regulars and I always get them to laugh and laugh.
In my next post, I’m going to post about the Peak Times that will be best based on your time zone and some groups to join once you get started. 🙂
Don’t forget to follow to stay up to date on the latest. I’m going to try to post more often. 🙂 If you would like to sign up please click my link here (My Code is: 028RC8) and also snap me an email, if you need more information or feel a little nervous. If you sign up and join VIPKID, I’ll send you an information packet email jammed packed with information in order to succeed in the interview.
That is all for now… Happy Teaching!!!
