This course emphasizes a critical approach to examination and selection of literature for K-16 school settings. Review and analysis of theories establish a foundation upon which to critique examples of literature, to view personal practice, and to adjust instructional approaches. Candidates will explore and identify literature selections to generate a stronger connection for all learners.
Parents typically wish to book many months of lessons upfront. Though you set your own availability and schedule, teachers with consistent availability to teach in the same time slots week to week for several months will get the most bookings. This is based on the parents’ preference for the same teacher to instruct their child for the duration of their 5 month course. If teachers continue to be available thereafter, some parents may even wish to book him or her for an additional 5 months for their child’s second course. We offer supplemental fees for repeat bookings, usually a fee of $1.00 per hour ($.50 per class) when you teach the same student each week.
Many business owners don’t have the time to make consistent updates to their social media profiles, or to respond promptly to customer requests made via social media. That’s why so many businesses today are looking to hire social media managers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a 10 percent job growth rate is expected for social media marketing managers between 2016 and 2026.
While you don’t necessarily need much experience to become a researcher, earning the best pay comes from specializing in an area you have some expertise in. And while you may find the research easy, know that you will likely have a set of guidelines to follow. Get the details on my Get Paid to Be A Know-It-All post, and see if the following are hiring:
User testing is another one of those prime easy remote jobs! All you have to do is look at a website or mobile app, complete an activity as requested or just look around, and then give your thoughts on the website or app. Sometimes, your screen will be recorded while you complete the test and speak your thoughts out loud. Other times, you may be asked to write out your brief thoughts. Either way, the only real technical requirements are to have a home computer (that you can install the screen recording software on) and high-speed Internet access or particular type of smartphone.
Wow! This is a tough one. Honestly, don't do it if you cannot stand kids/young adults. Don't think that a high school class is going to be anything like your LIT 451 class - you know, where all 15 of you sit down with the professor and discuss Frankenstein through a Freudian lens. Don't think that all your kids are going to like reading Jane Eyre because you like it. Know that parents are going to blame you for every horrid grade/missing assignment. Know that when you finally get used to one lesson plan format or standardized test, that the state will change it and you'll have to learn something new. Understand, quickly, that the bad days will probably outweigh the good ones, but that it only takes one student to grow to love reading to make you feel accomplished and appreciated. Understand that students rarely will understand why they have to read classics and why your class is important when they know they want to major in Biology, but that in a few years one of them will send you a letter in the mail thanking you for all you did for them.
With English taking hold as the international language of commerce and culture, hundreds of millions of students across the globe are participating in English language classes each year. From Seoul and Shanghai to Milan and Santiago, there is an unprecedented demand for English instructors. While many people worldwide confront the most challenging job market in generations, teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) provides both viable and accessible job opportunities as well as a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the world while gaining invaluable work experience.
Ask your course creators if the system has special tools and functions. Is there a way to simultaneously poll all of the students to gauge their understanding of a topic? Can students type thoughts or questions into a chat or discussion while another student is speaking and save time on the additional verbal back and forth? You don’t want to discover special capabilities halfway through a course!
If students work ahead, they do not have to wait until they see their tutor again to see progress. The Thinkster tutoring app provides video tutorials that explain multiple strategies for solving math problems that are similar to the ones in the worksheet. The tutor then provides daily grading and regular feedback on each unit completed, encouraging students to keep learning on their own schedules.
“TEFL” is the acronym for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, or simply, English language instruction for non-native speakers. Also known as Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or English Language Teaching (ELT), the field of TEFL/TESOL is one of the fastest growing educational fields in the world, presenting thousands of excellent professional opportunities in all corners of the globe to native and fluent English speakers who achieve their TEFL/TESOL certification. These terms are essentially interchangeable in the international English teaching market, our certifications list both terms.
My students do well! I am a chemical engineer. I know math and science well. I have tutored students after work for 12 years. I know students well. I work with a student to find the knowledge holes that cause problems. I explain the missing concept and then explain it again from a second angle. I work through the problem with the student and watch him do it again. When we find and correct holes in the student's knowledge base, he is caught up and ready to excel in his class. He often finds that he doesn't need a tutor any more -- not great for my business model, but definitely my goal. ... View Profile
With online learning, it may be more difficult to get to know students’ learning styles on an individual basis (this guide to online teaching from NEA can help). Try to include a variety of assignments and course materials to make sure every student has an opportunity to learn in the way that’s best for them. This is another area where knowing your LMS can help you track class performance on different types of assignments and gain a better understanding of how students are learning the material. Keep in mind that some demonstrations involving a whole classroom of people cannot be done when students are all in different places, but you do have the opportunity to include videos and tutorials that may not have been used in the classroom.
The best services require their tutors to hold valid teaching credentials — proof that they have the knowledge and skills to help you learn. If a service's tutors aren't licensed teachers, it should require them to hold some form of official certification (usually obtained through a series of reference checks, background checks, and training courses). Services that require teaching credentials scored the highest in our review, with services that require a certification scoring slightly lower.
