Description: There will be an article below to show you how to navigate the vipkid teacher portal and several other information about the sample classes, trials as well as the teachers.
I made this video to help you navigate the teacher portal. At the beginning, it can seem a little daunting, so I’d make this video to help you through it,here’s your login screen, go ahead and login and of course enter at least for all anointing verification every time and it takes you to your screen, your schedule when you get in there in this teaching center, it has everything that you could possibly want to know about classes and sample classes and how they structure things and trials and all sorts of stuff.
If you went through the whole hiring process and you took all your courses or you took a bunch of level courses so that you get certified for something,how do I teach level 4? this is where you want to go, because it will tell you everything you need to know.
If you’re not sure what to do at the bottom, you have a my show with summer campus how about really looked into that yet going to you and teaching skills and the reward systems and you have right here, some pretty cool stuff, all the printable PDFs of all the reward slides they have, so if you really want that booth Alex, but you could use it, you have the hello and goodbye songs, so all for your viewing pleasure, because you were so awesome to watch my video.
I’ll sing you a song.I’m just no learning, but the kids don’t care, they think it’s cool, when you go over here to bookings, you’re going to get back to that original page that we came into your schedule, because it’s the very end of the week and I am on my last video classes, this one just got cancelled, so I had some free time, I’ll make a video, I will move to the next week.
They would enjoy that.I am in Hawaii time Honolulu Pacific, whatever so our peak hours are from 12:00 a.m. to 3:30 a.m., they are in the light pink down here on Friday and Saturday which is Beijing’s Saturday, Sunday you have peak hours from 3:00 p.m., all the way to 11:30 p.m. and then again from 12:00 to 4:00. Basically,all of those are peak nights in the dark,these are your peak hours, those are when you have the most bookings or the easiest to get booked.
If you’re starting out,I love bookings open, all those peak slots that will give you your highest rate for highest chance of getting booked which is possible, once you get booked, you have these little green boxes, you can rest your mouse on top of them and it will tell you the time for Beijing like this one is 6:30 p.m. Beijing but 12:30 a.m.
You can click on it and it tells you a little bit of information about that class, you can go to the classroom or you can cancel it in order to open a class, you just select the box and it will pop right up that tells whoever that wants to book you that you are available for that time, if you check this little box that’s a 24-hour box check it, only if you know you’re going to be able to teach that class, because you don’t want to check it, forget about it and miss a class, because that would stink, so the 24-hour box while awesome because if it books under 24 hours,you get two extra dollars. if it books say on Thursday and you’ve checked the 24-hour box on Sunday and this slot fills up you don’t get the two bucks, you only get it if they book it during that time.
If I know these two thirty spots can book and I’m not sure I want to stay up till 2:30. I’ll wait till the day before to open it and select the 24 hour button and then if I will stay up that late.
I’ve heard lots of horror stories and people complain about phantom bookings, let me explain where they come from, you’re sitting here and you’re on your computer or a laptop,it’s going to be the people who have laptops. I’m sure that is going to see it, but it can happen either way.
You’re scrolling on your little touchpad and you’re looking at Monday over here and your fingers, just resting and accidentally double clicks BAM five o’clock, just opened up. I don’t have anything. Monday, I’m going to select this and turn it off and I go to a different page at 5:00 p.m. spot now says that you’re willing to take a class below.
It will book and you had no idea, you selected it,you weren’t paying attention to that side of your screen, make sure before you click off of your screen that you look over your schedule and make sure all the times that you have selected are times, you actually want to teach, it’s so easy to click those little things, but that’s where the Fanning fan time booking comes from.
They magically decided to book you, you selected it you didn’t realize it.I have a bad habit of sick clicking on this to look up the information and then wanting to click off it and clicking over here to make it go away.
I’ve opened that 3:00 p.m. spot, so I’ve taught myself, if I click something to see, I will select up here to turn it off or you can just click back on the box, but for some reason I can’t remember to do that, go figure.
Once you have your bookings, they will show up here in York bathroom tab, every class that you have booked is going to show up, it will give you the lesson number, the lesson name, the students’ name is scheduled time, that’s important.
Obviously, if it’s a short notice and in the status over here, some actions classroom will take you to the classroom, that’s how I go and get into every single room my classroom since I come here materials shows you what material you’re going to be using.
I’ll do another little video to explain that student information tells you about the student, it just gives you their name, how many classes they’ve taken before if they’ve taken the computer.I like to look it up and give myself an idea.
If the student is taking anything,you’re also going to see, any feedback from teachers in there speaking of feedback when you’re finished with a class, it will say feedback if the feedback has this little empty thing around it, that means you have not entered feedback for that class.
I don’t have to because if you see here it says student no-show, so this didn’t show up,there is no feedback necessary for that spots, so I don’t have to do anything some people do, if you choose to read a quick little,we missed you in class today.
