When teacher Mary Anderson learned about 51Talk’s convenient and hassle-free teaching environment, she didn’t think twice about switching to the platform.
People prefer certain perks over others when looking for a new occupation. Some look for a higher salary, while others desire a better position. For teacher Mary Anderson, she realized that flexibility and convenience matter to her most. That’s why when she learned about 51Talk’s flexible teaching system, she decided to switch to teaching on the 51Talk platform.
Before teaching with 51Talk, teacher Mary Anderson taught for another EFL company. She learned about 51Talk from one of her classmates who is also teaching on the platform. She found it convenient that 51Talk allows its teaching partners to plot their schedule.
With her previous platform, she needed to send her schedule for the week in advance. Whenever there was an emergency, she would have to contact the team manager to close her open teaching slots. Learning about how 51Talk works, she was happy that she didn’t have to ask someone else to manage her schedule anymore. Aside from the flexible scheduling system, teacher Mary Anderson found that 51Talk only uses Air Class to teach. In her previous platform, she had three teaching tools to juggle, and it was a big hassle for her to switch from one tool to another.
After joining the platform, she has been teaching according to a more convenient and flexible schedule. She also noticed that she had a higher base fee, too. Now, she is 7 months into teaching with 51Talk.
Besides the platform’s flexibility, 51Talk also helped her overcome some personal challenges. Most people would come to know her as a quiet person. She admits that she is very shy, and she doesn’t know how to start a conversation. However, when she is with her family and friends, she is a cheerful person.
Since teaching on the platform, teacher Mary Anderson learned to open up more and overcome her shyness. She says, “When I started as an online EFL teacher, I got to talk to different students, and I think it helped me become more comfortable talking to others. I also treat my students as my family and friends, so that I have the confidence to share my knowledge with them. ”
She also didn’t expect to impact so many lives through the platform. In every lesson she teaches, she knows that she is adding more to her student’s knowledge. Additionally, the rate she earns allows her to help her parents pay their bills. She says, “It is a great feeling to be able to help others and enjoy your profession at the same time.”
Right now, what keeps her going are her regular and future students in 51Talk. She shares, “I know that I have the obligation to help my students to achieve their goals. After all, they are also the reason why I am fulfilling my dreams for my family. Without them, I will not be where I am now.”
For online English teachers who are thinking of switching to 51Talk, teacher Mary Anderson says:
“Do you want convenience? Do you want to earn and enjoy at the same time? If your answer is ‘yes’, then apply now to 51Talk. It will be a good opportunity for you to help yourself and other people just by teaching. It is a hassle-free environment. You just get to stay at home and do the things you have done before.”
