Hi! My name is teacher Justine. I’ve been teaching English as a Second Language for quite some time now. I am an English teacher with English for Kids and Exam Preparation certificates. I gained a variety of teaching techniques.
Acadsoc: Ms. Justine, how long have you been working at ACADSOC? Do you have teaching experience before?
Justine.O: I have been working at ACADSOC for 1 year and 2 months now. This is my first time working in an online ESL company. And before that, I had worked in a Call Centre for 4 years, which trained me to speak fast and request me to speak in America accent.
Acadsoc: We have a Tutor’s Level System at ACADSOC. It is unbelievable that you took only one year to reach B level. How did you make it?
Justine.O: Hardworking. In the beginning, I just opened my slots as many as I can. I start working from 6 o’clock in the morning, creep from my bed, brush my teeth, wash my face and then prepare breakfast for my family. When they wake up with sleepy-eyes, I am already in class with students. But right now, I have already reached the goal that I got B level, not to earn money for survival only, I cut off my working hours but take my time to enjoy the personal life.
Acadsoc: Do you prefer to be a VIP teacher or to take trial lessons?
Justine.O: To be honest, I was afraid to take trial classes at first. With only 25 minutes, the teacher needs to adjust their teaching styles to suit the student’s capability. However, I feel excited now with the trial class every time. It is a challenge, and it will improve my ability at the same time. The best part of being a teacher is the personal satisfaction in seeing your students learn from what you taught and later on becoming a successful person. Telling you how much you’ve helped them to become confident English speakers.
Acadsoc: Would you like to share some impressive stories of your students?
Justine.O: Can I tell you about my first complaint? It was from a college student due to I spoke too fast in class, with the speed I used to be in the call center. That’s the time I realized that as a teacher you must speak slowly to make sure your student can catch your words. To avoid complaint, I prepare a lot before each lesson. Once I thought there would be a kid student, so I wore a cartoon headband. Suddenly, a college student showed in class. I took off the headband in one second and we laughed together. I also made a T-shirt with ACADSOC brand logo. It makes me look professional and reliable. Sometimes, students will send me a message like “I like you. I’m gonna miss you”, even we only did one lesson.
Acadsoc: Your keyboard looks awesome. I heard that you can touch type.
Justine.O: Hahahahahha. Yes, I can. Every time I do touch-typing, my student will get shocked and ask me about it.
Acadsoc: Besides working as an online tutor, do you have any other roles?
Justine.O: Not only a teacher, I am a marketing staff and administrator at ACADSOC. Time is like the water in the sponge, you’ll always get it if you twist it. What’s more, I’m also a mother. Once I found that my children sang the song I taught to Chinese students. It’s amazing that my own children are also learning and unconsciously influenced by my class.
