Recently, college student Zhang Xia (not his real name) told China Youth Daily Zhongqing Online that he worked as a tutor online part-time for three months and earned more than 10,000 salaries. So far, he has not got it. His part-time online education platform, known as learning hegemony one to one (hereinafter referred to as platform), was exposed to financial crisis.
For a long time, for many college students, part-time tutoring is an important way for them to work-study, social practice, and also a window for them to contact and understand society. Tutoring is also a good choice for many teachers majoring students to train their professional skills ahead of time.
With the Internet online education industry becoming more and more popular, the supply and demand relationship between parents and college students has become more smooth. More and more parents choose to let their children receive the second classroom education online, and many college students become tutors on the war line.
Zhang Xia is now studying in Computer Science in a 211 university. When he entered school last year, he saw a part-time advertisement for his long hair in the recruiting group. With the idea of earning some pocket money, he added the senior.
Mr. Zhang Xia was brought into a group specializing in online tutoring part-time work, in which there were many people from educational and training institutions. Send your resume first, then attend the interview by recording teaching videos, and receive two weekstraining in the Wechat group. Finally, take the work rules and regulations examination. Zhang Xia became an online tutor in December last year.
According to Zhang Xia, the platform has a special Curriculum Consultant and class teacher to guide parents to sign up. Parents list their childrens demands for grades, supplementary courses and what schools they want their students to take classes. The head teacher then transfers the parentsdemands to tasks and publishes them in the family education work group to let the students tutors claim.
Zhang Xia told reporters that most of the friends of the head teacher on the platform circled persuasive words such as now you are reluctant to invest in the education of your children, tomorrow you have to pay for the failure of your children, with inside information, the price of the courses will rise, you can buy more classes.
When I first came in, there were about hundreds of mission information in the group every day. Zhang Xia introduced that after taking over the task, parents and students should also attend a trial class. If the other party approves, they will become the tutor of the student. Parents pay for the customized class hours.
It is reported that in addition to parents telephone consultation link, platform registration, fees and so on all communication is completed online. Parents can also increase their fees and choose the students of the prestigious prestigious schools to teach their children.
Usually, Zhang Xia takes three studentsmath lessons, seven or eight hours a week, and can earn more than 2,000 yuan a month. There are people who are more diligent than me, who spend hours in class every day, and spend tens of thousands of dollars a month.
Zhang Xia told China Youth Daily Zhongqing Online that both students and teachers need to download an online video conferencing software on the computer or mobile phone, and then log in to the conference room through the user name and password software to conduct one-to-one online teaching. Parents can see the class situation on the mobile App in real time. Teachers should report in the system of the platform after each class, which is equivalent to punching in attendance to facilitate the settlement of wages.
It is reported that students in 211 universities and 985 universities pay 70 yuan per class and 85 yuan per class. Some better universities and top 100 students abroad can get 100 yuan per class, which only accounts for 60% of the tuition fees paid by students. The rest of the fees are owned by the platform.
For novice teachers, the most painful thing is to try to listen, which means that in 30 to 45 minutes of listening time, you must let your children like you, let parents see the advantages of online education. Yue Shanshan, a sophomore in a university in Anhui, introduced that after each class, waiting for parents to finally decide the time to buy classes made her very difficult.
Later, Shan Shans experience was gradually enriched and his class was relaxed. Over the past year, Shanshan has earned 7,000 yuan, because she feels that it affects her roommates relaxation. She also buys some food for her roommate when she gets her monthly salary.
I still like to talk closely with students, zero distance communication, so that more sense, online teaching, explaining the difficulty of the subject will feel unnatural. Shan Shan said.
In class, Shan Shan is more strict, but after class, she and the children get together. Shan Shan will give advice to the students like her elder sister, and share some small stories of life with them. Sometimes, when students have something to do, they will turn the class time late, and Shan Shan will wait.
Shanshan took a senior high school student with her. When she took over, her children had poor English proficiency. The 150-point test paper could only get about 70 points, and they had a serious degree. By the second year of senior high school, the childs English test can reach 100 points, Shanshan will assign self-study tasks after each class, so that she can understand that to learn self-learning, can not rely solely on remedial lessons.
I also brought Xiaoling (pseudonym), a senior high school student from Shaanxi Province, but her family condition was not good and she dropped out of school after more than a dozen classes. Shan later learned that Xiaoling was introduced into the platform by his relatives.
Xiaoling doesnt have cell phones. He often calls me to ask for knowledge. She is actually very good at learning. Maybe children with poor economic conditions cherish the lessons they spend. Shan Shan said.
Through chatting, I learned that some tutors just for money, casually download a few PPTs from the Internet, read about the PPT, fool parents and children, which is also the reason why many children complain that their grades have not improved. Shanshan told reporters that some teachers were punished by deduction of salary or dismissal from the platform because of conflicts with their children or improper words and deeds.
Children are in junior high school. Math and English are very bad. Its harder to get in high school. Ms. Wei of Fuzhou bought 160 classes of tuition fees for her children at one time. Ms. Wei feels that the online platform can select students from famous schools as teachers without having to pick up and deliver children. She can also see the class situation and feel more at ease.
Shanshan told reporters that many parents feel that the tuition fees are expensive and they cant afford so much cash for a while. Teachers in charge of classes and course consultants will also guide them to make loans in some loan companies to buy classes for their children.
Ms. Li of Guangdong, under the persuasion of the head teacher, borrowed 20 thousand yuan from her husband, and paid 200 tuition fees. Now if the money does not come back, I dare not tell my husband, if he knows, I will be scolded to death.
The Regulations on the Implementation of the Law of the Peoples Republic of China on the Promotion of Private Education (Revised Draft) (submitted for examination) regulate online education, and stipulate the implementation of academic education, training and education online and the provision of educational services through the Internet platform. According to the draft, institutions that use Internet technology to implement online training and education activities, vocational qualification training or vocational skills training activities, or Internet technology service platforms that provide services for online implementation of the aforementioned activities, should obtain appropriate Internet business licenses, and may not implement the need to obtain school licenses. Education and teaching activities.
Xiong Bingqi, deputy dean of the 21st Century Institute of Education, believes that online education and training, like off-line entity training institutions, mainly focus on subject education, and most of the teaching revolves around examination-oriented education.
He suggested that parents should pay attention to the legitimacy of the qualifications of educational institutions while paying attention to the teachers, specific courses and quality assurance system. At the same time, relevant departments should strengthen supervision over online educational institutions.
According to the Notice of the Ministry of Education on the Effective Management and Reform of Off-campus Training Institutions, teachers engaged in disciplinary training in training institutions are required to have teacher qualification certificates, and most part-time students may not be able to meet this requirement. Xiong Bingqi said that students can work part-time to study, but on the Internet, part-time must choose legitimate institutions and posts, and abide by legal norms, avoid entering into fraudster institutions, let themselves involved in it, no way to protect their rights.
Many parents believe that education will change their fate, they dare not slack their childrens education, and even compare with each other. They feel that if their children do not make up for the lessons, they will have self-blame mentality, which has led to the growing popularity of online education institutions. Wang Yunfei, an associate professor at the School of Society and Politics, Anhui University, believes that many online educational institutions aim at the market and attract parents to sign up by playing the marketing card of famous teachers teaching. At the same time, Wang Yunfei believes that many college students have insufficient social experience, even a thorough understanding of the nature of education. He thinks that family education can make money, so he invests in it and realizes what he learns through family education. He suggested that college students should shoulder more social responsibility when online tutoring students. They should not concentrate on money and neglect the cultivation of studentspersonality quality. Source: China Youth Daily editor: Su Hong _NBJ9980
