Being the founder of an elegant, no-nonsense website for private tuition, I was impressed when I came across Canada-based resource for English language tutors, Off2Class. Here’s why:
We believe that all high quality ESL teachers have the ability to generate independent income – independent of school administrators, school districts or online tutoring portals (www.off2class.com/about).
It’s rare for a company to celebrate the independence of tutors as their starting point. With that in mind, Off2Class has got to work in building a library of lesson content tailored for English conversation classes either face-to-face or online.
The idea is to help tutors reduce their preparation time, create a high quality learning experience and deliver a professional look for their business – without trying to monetize the tutor-student interaction itself. It’s a hands-off approach which strikes a chord with The Tutor Pages’ ethos.
English language tutors can trial Off2Class for 30 days, and then subscribe at low cost on a monthly basis if they like what they see.
The subscription doesn’t just include lesson plans: there are homework assignments for students, teacher notes and a clever system of tracking students’ progress.
