Growing Stars is looking for qualified and committed tutoring professionals who are interested in teaching online. The company looks for friendly and patient individuals with excellent organization and communication skills. If you hold a Masters Degree in your subject and have a passion for teaching then this is the opportunity for you.
Of course, online tutors work online. You’ll need an up to date computer with a reliable Internet connection so that you can effectively communicate with all your international students. Growing Stars also recommends having a microphone, headset and webcam so that you can be seen and heard properly. You should also have access to a quiet and private room where you can hold your tutoring sessions. You want to make sure that you don’t have any distractions while working!
Once you meet all the requirements, head on over to the Growing Stars website and complete the short online tutor application. You’ll need to fill out some basic information such as you contact information, address, education and qualifications. If you have it, be sure to include any relevant work experience, too. Any past teaching or tutoring gigs will go a long way!
Don’t worry if Growing Stars takes a while to get back to you. You should be prepared to wait a couple weeks after submitting your application before hearing anything back. The company gets hundreds of applications each week so it may take a while before they get to yours. Once you’re approved as a Growing Stars online tutor, you’ll receive email confirmation as soon as possible.
Once you’re approved as a tutor, you will be notified by Growing Stars when there is a student that needs help with your subject and who you can accommodate based on your availability.
Growing Stars assigns an ‘education manager’ to each student. You will work with your student’s education manager and his or her parents to discuss learning goals and other important issues. Next you will customize a learning program and schedule weekly sessions.
Once all that is finalized, it’s on to the fun stuff! You will meet with your student on a weekly basis in private, one-on-one sessions, teaching from the very same textbooks that the student uses in his or her classes at school. Tutoring sessions are conducted using Skype and Growing Stars’ online whiteboard software. It will feel like you and your student are in the same room, no matter how many miles are between you!
Be sure to maintain a friendly and upbeat attitude when tutoring. Your students are more likely to learn more while they’re enjoying themselves. Who says learning can’t be fun?
