Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction to online teaching
10:46
In this class you will discover how I got started in this business and I'll show the reasons why you too should become an online teacher.
14 pages
In this class I will share my experience with online teaching platforms and my opinion about the ones I have tried.
Section 2: Which tools should I use when teaching online?
13:59
Remember I told you in the first class that nobody had taught me how to teach online? That I had researched about the topic and the suggestions people gave were: scan the materials you already have and email them to your student? Remember I told you that it didn’t make any sense to me? Well, I kept teaching and experimenting until I found the Google Apps (Google docs, Google calendar, Google hangout…). Now, it doesn’t mean I stopped looking for new things, as an online teacher we can never stop looking for new tools, because there are always new ones coming out. It’s just that so far I haven’t found anything so useful that is free!
In this class you will learn how to create and share a Google Doc. I will also show you some cool features that will help you have live interaction with your students, correct their homeworks and make your classes more interesting.

Instructor Biography

Luisa Costa De Oliveira, English teacher as a second language

I have always been a teacher (I used to teach my teddy bears and dolls), but I started teaching for real when I was 17 after living one year in the United States and taking a Teacher’s Training Course for English teachers.

Then I went to college and I got a degree on Physical Education, which helped me discover that being a teacher is a vocation, and that reflects on my dynamic way of teaching.

I did my graduate studies on Psychopedagogy, which was fundamental in my formation as a teacher because it allowed me to develop my knowledge on learning and teaching aspects.

I worked in many schools, most of them bilingual ones with kids of all ages (3-13 years old) and in some language courses too, where I worked with adults and teenagers. I also had my own little school where I had small groups and some private students too.

I have been teaching through Skype for 3 years now and I love using the technology to improve my classes.

I developed a website, which is like a window shop of language teachers who teach online. Each teacher has their profile, schedule and prices posted on the website and the students choose the one that best fits their needs. I developed this website because I wanted to create an environment,where teachers have more freedom, feel more appreciated and  can do what they do best: to teach! I believe happy teachers teach better, therefore students learn more, so everybody wins!

I am Brazilian, so I speak Portuguese and teach Conversation Classes of Brazilian Portuguese. I also speak and teach English. I speak Spanish but don’t teach it. At least, not yet!
