When I look back at my life, I realized that many of the people who changed my life were teachers. I thought becoming a teacher would be a tremendous way to pay them back. I’m still amazed by the unselfishness and fortitude of the teachers I work with (and the one I’m married to).
The most rewarding part of teaching here is the satisfaction of the caretakers and students who earn great grades. I love teaching students online because a lot of them feel more comfortable here and can truly flourish in this environment. They can be themselves and not feel the pressure they may feel at a brick-and-mortar school.
One way I foster engagement and interaction among students is by incorporating their interests—including books, films, TV shows, and music—into my face-to-face LiveLesson® sessions. Also, I love to hold talent shows where students can showcase their art, play an instrument, or show off their hobby—some even display their gaming ability.
