More SkimaTalk

Ok, so I just signed up with SkimaTalk. I had to make a profile, upload a high quality headshot, record a short audio sample of me talking about why I want to teach with SkimaTalk, and provide a link to either my LinkedIn or Facebook for verification. Finally, I had to take a 19 question quiz on SkimaTalk. All the information for the answers is located within the text of the questions. Be careful to read everything, as you need to achieve a score of 100% to be considered. However, you can take the quiz as many times as you need to pass. Now, I’m waiting for my profile to be reviewed. If everything’s ok, you can begin by teaching 3 lessons for no charge. After, you will make $9/lesson. Once you’ve taught 10 lessons and get at least 2 ratings of 4.0  or higher, you can charge whatever you’d like. The only other things you need are Skype and an internet connection. Sweet deal, right? Check it out for yourself here.

EDIT: Just got approved to teach online with SkimaTalk!

120 hours. And then some.

I have officially completed the first 120 hours of my TEFL certificate! When I signed up, I was also allowed to pick a supplemental course to take (I chose one-on-one teaching) which I have completed as well. Yay!

This is super exciting and I’ve already gotten the PDF version of my certificate. The next step is taking the remaining 20 hours of my program at a two day in-classroom course in New York City.

I can’t believe that this is becoming a real thing right now.

Also, my application for EPIK has been officially submitted so now I’m waiting to see if I get an interview.

Fingers crossed!

SkimaTalk?

Has anyone had any experience with SkimaTalk? I noticed that I can sign up through my TEFL program (i-to-i) to teach with SkimaTalk and supplement my income.

It looks like teachers can make $15/hour and must be available a minimum of 10 hours/week. Potentially, I could make $600/month doing this which would be awesome, like woah.

If anyone has done this before, please let me know about your experience! Or, if you know of any other similar programs, I would appreciate that, too!
