“To get started, I filled out an online application and heard back in two days. Qkids prepared me with everything I needed to know before participating in a demo class, which I was paid to do. It went well, and two more demos followed!
“Now I teach about 25 halfhour classes a week for $ 20 an hour. I prefer the early morning and late-night classes, though you get to choose your shifts.
“I work with one to four students per session, and each lesson is assigned online and requires no prior planning on my part. We do speaking exercises, interactive games, animations and skill assessments. My main job is to guide the students, giving them encouragement and lots of smiles!
“What I love most about this work are the ‘ light bulb’ moments, when students go from confused to proud—there is no better feeling! It’s these moments that motivate me to wake up early for class.”
