How to teach
Hallo has 1M+ students from around the world, which means teachers can teach anytime, anywhere. To reach their fullest potential as soon as possible, we recommend that teachers teach live classes for 60-90 minutes on a regular basis at least three times a week at the times that work the best for their schedule. However, if you’re not finding much success during a certain time or day, we recommend switching it up! The teachers we have noticed that gain the most subscribers tend to have a set schedule and stream at least 3 times a week.
For teaching private lessons, we recommend setting your available schedule and checking your notifications and schedule often to see who has booked lessons with you. Most students like just having 1 25-minute private lessons, but some students may want to book 2 25-minute lessons with you back-to-back. As you focus on teaching to your students’ needs, understanding their goals, and helping them make progress to achieve them, students will be more likely to want to continue to learn with you. Don’t be afraid to assign homework and ask students if they would like to continue to learn 1 on 1 with you once or even twice a week!
Although Hallo has its own curriculum anyone can access here: hallo.tv/curriculum, many of our teachers use or create their own. Some of our teachers use a mix. On Hallo, you have the freedom to choose!
Teachers can stream any topic related to their brand as long as the overall goal is to help people become more confident and fluent in English and as long as the content is acceptable under our Code of Conduct and Terms of Service. We recommend creating lesson plans, regularly asking students for feedback, and focusing your lessons on your students’ needs. Other than that, the choice is yours! Use quizzes, videos, music, games, cultural experiences, props, whiteboards, etc. to engage your students and help them best learn English.
For courses particularly, teachers need to use our official curriculum designed for courses.
Live classes: teaches can start their lessons either on the home page via their computer or mobile device.
Private lessons: teachers can join their private lessons on the schedules page on their mobile device.
Live courses: teachers are required to teach courses on their computer, and they can start their classes on the home page of the web app.
Either teachers can tap on a comment of a subscriber or subscribers can send a request to hop-on. Hop-ons are one of the most valuable benefits of subscribing to a teacher, so we recommend teachers to utilize this feature as much as they can.
Most of our students are 18-30 years old English learners from around the world that are wanting to study abroad or get a better job. Some of our top countries are Indonesia, India, Turkey, Egypt, Brazil, and etc.
