Here are a few “Bonus” tips to get everyone started online:
- Continuity is king. Keep everything the same as much as you can. Same time, same price, same students, same content. The only thing that changes is the lack of a commute & the location from classroom to your own warm, comfortable front room.
- Remember the magic phrase for current students: “Don’t worry, I won’t charge you any more for the online lessons”
- Use the Genki English community: exchange videos with other schools, join each others’ classes as guest teachers, join your whole zoom classes together to play and practice, The VIP Facebook Group is the place to shout out to other amazing Genki teachers.
- The Flipped Classroom works even better with online lessons. Students learn at home then practice with you in the zoom classes.
- Just about all the Genki English curriculum games work great online too. Bring in toys, teddies and friends as game partners to make it even more fun! If in doubt, ask the kids how to modify the rules for online. They come up with some crazy ideas! (Do share the best ones with us!)
- Your market is now the whole country, so yes that means more competition, but it also means you can choose exactly the students you want. Parents are desperate for great teachers like yourself and will pay handsomely for it!
- We’re heading into Winter so a positive Genki Attitude and lots of fun with the Genki songs and games will be a life saver for desperate parents this year!
- Remember you are AWESOME! You’re scared but you’re doing this anyway. And we’re all here to support you!! 🙂
Good luck, enjoy the video training above and enjoy!
