Being an I.T tutor

Posted on March 27, 2015 at 1:22 am

Are you great on computers? Even if you don’t have any qualifications you could become a self-employed I.T tutor for people wishing to brush up their I.T skills and join the modern computer operated society.

It’s something that many people struggle with and for some people they just need someone with enough experience of using the internet and various popular programs to take the time to show them how things work.

As a tutor you could offer one on one or group sessions where you can show people how to use social media sites and how to set up email accounts to allow them to communicate more effectively.

As long as you have a good knowledge of popular systems and you have the patience to teach people in a way that suits their learning styles then you could really be on to a winner.

The key to this is where you advertise, your best bet would be leaflets or posters up at your local library/post office to attract people who tend to be a little technophobic and are looking for a bit of help.

There are many learning and training courses and qualifications that can now be taken online. These types of courses have many advantages and are becoming more and more popular. Often you may find that learning in this way is less costly than having to attend a college or university as there are fewer overheads involved so they can bring the fees down.

Becoming an Entrepreneur

Posted on April 3, 2014 at 11:57 am

Starting your own business can be quite intimidating. But it need not be as stressful as you may think. Maybe you have an idea of a new product you want to launch or maybe you have been working in an industry and noticed an area that you think could be improved or has not yet been developed. Whatever your idea is the basics are the same for most.

First of all you need to create a business plan of your idea and then detail the market for the product or service. Once you have this you can then start to work out costs – overheads and materials and then what you plan to sell it for. This will allow you to see if you can make money in what you are proposing.

Many people are not happy in their current job and becoming an entrepreneur allows you to be your own boss.

Teaching Evening Classes

Posted on February 18, 2014 at 11:32 am

Teaching, depending upon the role, doesn’t always equal a full time job. In these instances, an opportunity presents itself, for teachers to supplement their employment with an added source of income. There are various ways in which teachers can go about doing this, one being evening classes. Just like any other class, an evening class requires face to face education, which some teachers may find more palatable than teaching via internet correspondence. If a teacher wants to fulfil a similar role in their second job as in their normal job, then teaching evening classes fits that role, with one exception. This is that the majority of the students who enter an evening class program will be adults. In some ways, this presents a unique experience for teachers, who are more used to having to deal with children and adolescents. Working and tutoring people who amount to your peers can require a different attitude than what teachers commonly assume when teaching children, but the experience still has the potential to be spiritually rewarding.

Post Interview Feedback

Posted on December 21, 2013 at 7:23 pm

Many people will always talk about the build up to a job interview, but there’s not a lot said after interviews, especially unsuccessful interviews. However, there’s no way to improve on your interview technique without knowing where you’ve gone wrong.

This is why post interview feedback is important and all it can take is a telephone call or an email; asking the interviewer why he or she decided against employing you. Feedback can make sure you improve important areas, and ultimately do better in your next interview, potentially gaining a job.

In cases where there are high volumes of interviews you may not always be able to get relevant and helpful feedback. You should always be fully prepared when asking for post interview feedback, and it’s important to make sure you use any negative comments to push you in the future, rather than let it get the better of your confidence.

Creating a Cover letter

Posted on November 6, 2013 at 9:47 am

In our daily living, we will have to send out a resume on several occasions. Every time one requires sending their resume, they will need to include a cover letter. This is mainly because the cover letter is the most appropriate way of introduction to the potential employer. Therefore, an individual will require following some rules before sending the resume along with the cover letter.  Before writing the letter, it is important to consider your experience in relation with your potential employer. In addition, a cover letter should follow the right format. It should follow a standard business letter and should not exceed one page, and the information provided should follow a systematic order. The information should include how one came to learn about the job, qualifications and mention the resume. Finally, it is important to proofread the cover letter to correct common mistakes, which might stand in the way for a successful application.

Teaching Assistants – More important than some may think

Posted on October 18, 2013 at 10:54 am

As many of you are aware, it is not always a case of teachers being the only individuals left in control of a class, some have their own assistants, and these individuals can be extremely important to a child’s education.

Teaching assistants tend to be found in primary school classrooms, and their job doesn’t just include making a cup of tea for the teacher, they often have to impart their wisdom, and help the students engage and learn.

Often, teaching assistants will have their own selection of students to teach, occasionally those who have trouble concentrating, or those who may be falling behind in terms of the level they are at. In some cases teaching assistants are often given the children known for misbehaving and disrupting the class, but whatever collection of students they work with, they have to stay in control.

This can be difficult, because even young children can notice orders being given from teachers to teaching assistants, and they may feel less of an obligation to pay attention, perhaps they may have less respect, and this is why being a good teaching assistant is an extremely important job.

Being a teaching assistant is now becoming a career; rather than a job as a platform to becoming a teacher, and UKElearning now how important they are, so if you’re a teacher, a student or a parent, familiarise yourself with your teaching assistant (or your child’s teaching assistant), and treat them with the respect they deserve.

Fun Primary School Teaching Activities That Make Learning Really Fun

Posted on October 11, 2013 at 11:05 am

Primary school are the most important years for all kids going to school. This is because primary school is what lays down the educational foundation for these children to build off of for the future. They are not only developing their literacy skills. They are also nurturing motor skills and math skills that they will continue to grow with for years to come. Therefore, primary school should be made very fun and challenging, and the way to do this is with the use of fun primary school teaching activities that make learning really fun. When learning is really fun, kids will want to return to it, again and again.

Some very fun primary school teaching activities do include the following. One of these very fun primary school teaching activities involves writing down some different things that students have done in their lives or things that describe children. They should be a list of simple sentences that kids can read and understand. This little game is called facts about friends and it meant to encourage students getting to know each other better. Students are able to sign their names next to the sentence that best describes him or her. Then the teacher makes copies of all the lists once they are signed by students. The students then must write something extra and descriptive about themselves next to the original sentence that they signed their name off on originally. Forming relay races between the kids in the class to learn the alphabet is also another fun concept. Divide all of the students in the classroom into teams of three to five kids. Give each child a piece of chalk. Each student, one at a time, should go up to the chalkboard and write a letter of the alphabet. Each student that goes up to the board must continue the next letter of the alphabet and continue to build it on from there. Whatever team ends up writing the entire alphabet correctly by all letters does win the alphabet relay race.
