a. BREAK THE ICE
Students are strangers to each other, a warm greeting (in Line group of your classes, and when meeting up in the first lesson) is always great! Students attend our classes also for socializing, so spending a little time (10-15 minutes in the first lesson) to break the ice can effectively improve their satisfaction. Good questions are: Please introduce yourself? What are your passions? Why did you sign up? Have you taken other classes with MDT?
b. DON'T PREPARE TOO MUCH!
We don't do lecturing so please don't try to make your own "classes", it's too much work and it's not what the students want. Instead, try to make your classes play the main roles, no need to make handouts/volcabulary sheet/PPTs, etc. Best teachers at MDT see themselves as facilitator not lecturer. Again, people hate lecturing :P
c. ADVICE FROM MDT TEACHERS
If you want to know more, please check advice from MDT teachers.
- The hourly rate is at $800/hour NTD.
- We will deposit payment on every 30th. If a class starts on the end of the month, we will deposit the payment for all the 3 lessons in the month that the class starts. For instance, a class starts on 4/21 so three lessons are on 4/21, 4/28, 5/5; we will deposit NTD3600 to the teacher on 4/30.
- If teachers decide to host their classes in their own place we will offer subsidy as NTD300/lesson.
- If teachers decide to host their classes in cafes or bars, we will offer subsidy as NTD100/lesson. (Aside from our classrooms, we have cooperation with few cafes, too)
