Hi Gladysathome! I really do love my job. Every day, I learn something new. I created this business when I realized that no one was going to give me the work hours I needed in order to spend time with my little boys. Now, I am able to make my own hours!

I find that it is imperative to use my camera when speaking with my mostly Japanese students. So much of English is said nonverbally with our facial expression or body language! Conversation is so much more than words to me.

I TOTALLY know what you mean by slowing down the conversation technically, though. Skype is already a really large program. Adding video to a call can bog it down if you don't take a few steps to lighten the load on your computer. I usually stop all other programs if connection speed is bad, Internet explorer, any sidebars running. It seems to help improve our call.
