I’d probably go for Google payments if I was doing this kind of thing – since 1.) it’s google so probably super simple and intuitive, 2.) it’s google, so pretty much everyone has a google account, 3.) it says there are no fees unlike Skype.
Although the one reason why I wouldn’t use google is because it’s google and they probably already know more about me than I know myself!
I am in my final year at university and would like to teach only 2 hours a week. Is there a website where to find students?
I’m more or less focused on students that want to learn English but for a specific field such as Business or Gym.
Thanks a lot!

Teaching Online: Key Tricks
Online teaching is the future of modern education. Between MOOCs, long-distance classes and a culture of taking unknown and unique courses in pursuit of passion, online education has grown exponentially in the past few years. In this day and age, online learning has become the future of education. Here are a few steps to take when you are delivering online classes. These are the few tips that should help you understand the online teaching process in greater detail.
Avoid one-sided lectures when teaching online. Make a point to have not more than five minutes of speaking time followed by a small question-answer session. The main point is to make sure that the student does not zone out and become monotonous. Make sure that you talk for small portions of time and then as them to explain back what they have learned in the listening session. This will lead to clear concepts and they will also revise their topics hand in hand.
Have a social media group for all the students you are teaching online. Have interactive study tips, discussions and other exchanges regularly so that they feel engaged in the class. This is a good way to make sure that all the students are at the top of their workload and there is no confusion at all.
Innovative Study Plans:
The modern study plans cannot be simple and old lectures and feedback style. Make a study plan that asks them to exercise their learning in many ways. Do not ask them to repeat what you just said. Instead, ask them to answer a complex and practical question regarding your topic of focus.
Get in Touch:
The best course of action is that the students should always stay in touch with your teachers. So text them on IM regularly and make sure that they are up to the mark on everyday lectures. You need to make sure that they are up with the lectures, study plans and you need to help them out personally. Most students do not inform their instructors when they are having a difficult time. So you have to personally ask them every day.
All in all, there are few ways to make sure that the students are keeping up with all the study plans and they should work for you as well.
