Completing the feedbacks and reports

There are 2 types of feedback which we ask the teachers to complete:

  • feedback after a trial lesson
  • feedback about a student’s progress after 5/30/60/90 lessons

Feedback after a trial lesson

After a trial lesson with a new student, the teacher gets a small feedback to fill.

The unfilled feedbacks appear right in your Dashboard above the schedule:

The report is very small:

  • Choose how the lesson was finished: «Everything OK», «Technical issues», «Student didn’t show up», «Teacher didn’t show up».
  • Define the level of recommended syllabus for the student (not his current level, but what you are going to study). When you define the recommended level in the report, the mother of the student gets the same syllabus description as you can see in the table.
  • Write a short comment about the lesson for the parents. Try to be positive: note the student’s strong abilities, his attention and interest; write what would be best for the student to focus on, etc. The comment can be very short, but this is the most important part. Write the comment in Russian if you speak Russian, please.

*if you choose «Technical issues» please describe them in the comment.

ATTENTION! This report is obligatory to fill. Writing the comment is also obligatory. If you don’t write any comment and close the report, it will still be visible above your schedule during 7 days from the lesson. Then it will disappear, but you will still be able to find the lesson back in your schedule, click on it and press «finish» to write a comment.

ATTENTION! According to Terms and Conditions if the teacher has 3 or more unfilled feedbacks about trial lessons by Monday, his salary will be delayed for 1 week, until the feedbacks are filled.

 

Feedback about the student’s progress

After the student completes 5/30/60/90 lessons at AllRight school, the current teacher gets a feedback to fill.

This report is a bit longer than the one after a trial lesson, but in general it takes around 5 minutes to fill.

These reports also appear above your schedule in the Dashboard and stay there during 30 days:

The report itself should be also completed in Russian (if possible) and includes feedback about the student’s language skills and the topics covered during the lessons:

After the report is completed, the student gets a colourful letter about his success based on the teacher’s report. This is really important for the kids and they are looking forward to getting a certificate which is inside this letter (the certificate is generated only after 30/60/90 lessons):

ATTENTION! This report is obligatory to fill.

ATTENTION! According to Terms and Conditions if the teacher has 3 or more unfilled feedbacks about students’ progress during 30 days, his salary will be delayed for 1 week, until the feedbacks are filled.

Why is it great to teach Speaking Club classes?

 

  • self-advertisement: when students meet you at Speaking Club classes they may «fall in love» with you and want to have regular 1-on-1 classes with you as well;
  • paid classes and additional earning: a new teacher usually experiences troubles during his first weeks having lots of trial classes, so Speaking Club is a good way to earn more even during your first weeks;
  • prepare 1 lesson plan — teach many lessons: teachers prepare their own lessons for Speaking Clubs, but the good thing is that you can teach one and the same topic throughout the whole week: e.g. your topic is «Weather» so you can teach 5-6 classes on this same topic to different groups during the week;
  • diverse experience: some teachers like teaching small groups and upgrading their teaching skills this way;

 

FAQ

 

Payment: according to the teacher’s payment rate for regular classes (same price as for 1-on-1 classes); the size of payment depends on the lesson duration (30 or 60 min, see the table below)

Age: the teacher chooses the age group he wants to work with (younger groups are more popular) — see the table below.

Level: students are divided into groups not according to their level but according to their age (at this point our system allows us to do only this way). Yet, there is some general understanding that the older the group is, the higher its level is — see the table below.

Age Group size Class duration Recommended level
4-6 y.o. 6 students or less 30 min Charlie Preschool, Charlie Starter 1 (complete beginner)
6-9 y.o. 7 students or less 60 min Charlie Starter 1, Charlie Starter 2 (beginner)
10-12 y.o. 7 students or less 60 min Charlie Mover 1, Charlie Mover 2 (elementary)
13-16 y.o. 8 students or less 60 min Charlie Flyer 1, Charlie Flyer 2 (pre-intermediate)

Day: Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday

Time: the administrator will choose a green slot in your schedule

Topic: the teacher chooses the topic and prepares the lesson himself; try to choose interesting topics (superheroes, fairytales, lego, minecraft — they are superpopular) or invent a nice topic yourself

Important: you need to make a list of 4-5 topics for a month in advance and tell it to the administrator of Speaking Clubs on Monday; the lessons are planned in your schedule from Wednesday to Wednesday (for 1 week every time), but it would be better if you give the administrator several topics in advance so that she can plan a little bit ahead.
