Use Zoom & Do a Practice Run with a Friend or Family Member


Many Independent teachers use Zoom for their classes.

Zoom is a great tool with loads of options for interactivity.

The NearPod files that come with the Kid-Inspired ESL Curriculum included with the Independent Teachers membership integrate really well from Zoom.

A good way to rest your nerves a bit before your first independent lessons is to get a family member or friend online with you so that you can practice using the tools you plan on using for your classes.
