How long is each class?
Each class needs to be 25 minutes in length, however, each time slot is 30 minutes in length. This gives you a 5-minute buffer just in case the student is late and allows you enough time to head into the following student’s classroom. (if you have classes back to back)
How can I schedule my time?
You can use the scheduler in order to schedule your available time. You just select the time slots you are available to teach from within your teacher portal. It is recommended that you select your available time slots at least 48 hours prior to the class time to increase your booking rate by the students. You may book your availabilities for the month beginning with the current week.
What hours should teachers be available to teach?
Teachers select their own hours, so there is no requirement for specific hours that teachers need to teach. With that being said, there are times in which more students will be on the platform and thus you are more likely to have a class booked by the students. The times in which most students are using the platform are 7-9pm on weekdays and 9am-9pm on weekends.
Is there a maximum number of hours a teacher could teach?
Gogokid sets no limit on the number of hours a teacher can teach within a day, however, we do recommend placing breaks throughout the day so as to ensure class quality and performance from our teachers. You have full control over your schedule, but strive to ensure you make it to the class if a student books a class with you in order to avoid credit score penalties.
What do I need to prepare for the classes?
You don’t need to prepare teaching materials. However, it is strongly recommended that you have your own teaching props ready in order to better facilitate the classes and that you read and review the class slides before the classes.
Will I need to communicate with the parents?
In a way, you will need to write up some feedback within 12 hours of the class ending to describe how the class went. It’s recommended that you write what you covered in the class, what the student did well, and what the student need to practice more (and give directions on how to go about practicing). This will be your only required communication with the parents.
Will I always teach the same students?
We cannot guarantee that you will always be teaching the same students, nor that you will have a stable stream of students. Trial students are likely to take your classes, and if they like your classes, it is very likely that they will sign up and rebook your classes in the future. It’s also possible that a paying student may just book a class with you to see what your teaching style is like. Basically put, you may not always teach the same students, but if a student likes you and your teaching style, then there is a good chance you will see them again.
Where do the classes take place?
The classes will take place in our virtual classroom which is accessible via the teacher portal 30 minutes before the start of each class.
