Even if I have my own personal problems, when I am teaching, I forget about them because I believe my students deserve a fun lesson every time.

He used to be a part-time videographer and content writer, but he finally realized a love for teaching when he joined 51Talk two years ago.

Teacher Marky Jess is so awed by the level of commitment his students have. He wants to reciprocate it by giving them the best learning sessions he can possibly give. “Even if I have my own personal problems, when I am teaching, I forget about them because I believe my students deserve a fun lesson every time.”
As a work-from-home teacher, Marky Jess is looked up to by his friends and family. He in turn, is inspired by the fact that he gets to touch the lives of his students. “I see my students grow and improve their comprehension skills. When they grow up, they will recall that at one point in their life, a 51talk teacher taught them and laughed with them. The opportunity to leave an impact, a legacy even in a small way, is a great reward.”
