The following is a review by Gogokid Teacher – Andy Grow.
As you have probably noticed, the world of online teaching has caught on fire in the last few years. Online teaching is becoming more popular and and even a full time career for some teachers.
This growth of the online teaching industry will, of course, also bring many new companies. If you search for “Teach English online” on the internet and you will probably see, what it seems like, hundreds of online companies, that probably will include ‘abc’ or ‘kid’ in the name! But which one is the best for you? If you have a Bachelor’s degree and have a desire to teach English online, you will want to read the rest of this article!
Today, I will discuss 3 reasons, why I, personally, love working for Gogokid.
Now, every teacher’s circumstances is different. Some would like to have a set full schedule every week while others just might need some part-time work on the side, but there schedule may change weekly, so won’t be able to have a set schedule.
I fall into the latter category, and that’s my first, and most important reason why I like working for Gogokid.
1. No minimum hours! (Pick your own days and hours)
You can open or close your availability anytime you choose! (Note: You may close an opened slot only if that class has not booked by a parent of a student.) You may even choose the option of ’24 hour booking’! This is great, if your week seems to be uncertain and things could change at any time.
2. Incentives and bonuses
Let’s preface this by saying: As with other companies, incentive and bonus plans could change at any moment. So, without being too specific on the current incentives and bonus plan, I can generally say, that the more classes you work at GogoKid, the more likely you will receive more incentives and bonuses.
3. Fun and Interactive Lessons! (NO lesson planning!)
At the previous online company I worked at, there were NO interactive lessons. Yes, they did prepare content for you, but some of it actually looked like they just photocopied pages from a book! And if that’s not unprofessional enough, some content was obviously written by non-native speakers that included glaring spelling and grammar errors… trust me, you would know it if you saw it!
This made it very difficult to not only teach, but you also had to think of creative ways to extend the lessons and keep the lessons interesting. Now don’t get me wrong, you will most likely still need to extend some lessons at Gogokid too, but it’s much easier to because the material and content is very fresh, fun and interactive!
What do I mean when I say ‘interactive’?
The team at Gogokid do an amazing job at making colorful content that moves and speak when you click on certain parts of the pictures!
They have different clickable activities and games that the student can interact with. They have a cast of fun characters too, like a little boy named Jack, Alex, his sister named Hannah, a unicorn named ‘Uni’ and a dragon named… well… Dragon, along with a lot of other characters that bring the lessons to life!
Why should you choose Gogokid?
Choosing the right company is one of, if not, the most important step(s) that you will take to either start or continue your online teaching journey! I hope this article helps you make the decision a little less daunting.
In a nutshell, the 3 reasons why I love teaching for Gogokid are:
- No minimum hours
- Incentives and bonuses
- Fun and interactive lessons
