I'm so glad to hear from other TutorABC teachers. I know there's lots of us out there, but I don't get the chance to talk to any others, really. I'm curious about your teaching methods. What are some of your tricks and ideas that help students learn better? Do you all get through the slides each time? What kind of time do you allow for discussion? Do you have the students read the slides all the time?

I have students read questions to each other and answer them. I have them read some slides to themselves and have one summarize the page. I use the web browser a lot when I can.

Taoxue8. You can set your own tuition. Usually the students are willing to pay up to $20 per hour. If you prove your skills to them, they're willing to pay more.

This is their site. ?????????????-Taoxue8

They're looking for tutors at the moment to join the team. I would really recommend this school to interested online tutors. Anyone interested in an online teaching position should definitely check this one out! I've heard many positive things about it. I'm currently a tutor here and the school does a great job on marketing and finding serious language learners. The learners are mainly in China.

The pay is an hourly rate (not very high), and then they give you a "bonus" based on how much the students liked your session, which ranges from about $0.50 to $2.50 or so per session. Sessions are actually only about 45 minutes, but with the progress report you have to fill out for each student at the end of the session, and having to log in before the session begins, you are working for an hour.

Students are mainly from Taiwan, and the max is 5 students per class. Base wage is $8.25 per hour, I think.

I don't know about any differences in pay among the different nationalities of teachers.

Default Interview

I just scheduled my interview for 2 days from now. What can I expect the interview to be like? How long does it last? And, how long after the interview will you know if you've been hired?
