Candice tells us how she uses teaching online to find her potential and live life to the maximum.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live to your fullest potential? To seek something with your heart, then find it when you are least expecting it? My name is Candace Hicks, and this is my story.
I am a stay-at-home mom to two wonderful toddlers, while also studying at college full time. Throughout my journey, I realized that I was missing something. I wanted more for my life than just to live every day with the same routines. I began searching online for jobs that I could do while being at home with my children. This is when I found the ESL world. It's more than just working with children in China to teach them a new language. It's investing yourself in the future of the world. Qkids has quickly shown me that they have gratitude for their teachers as well as their students.
I have been with Qkids for 5 months and I have enjoyed every second I have spent teaching these children. I had previously worked in a modern school and the comparison to teaching online is minimal. Online teaching can bring you employment, it can allow you to stay at home with your children and it will be the reason that you fall in love with teaching all over again. Teaching online brings smiles and giggles from these children that will make you remember the reason you chose this job every day.
One of the main reasons that I love Qkids is because it provides you with a sense of accomplishment when you end the class knowing that you have made a difference. The impact that you can make on the students' lives is remarkable. Not every student will desire to learn, but with a few prompts from a smiling teacher that could change their entire aspect of learning! I have found that this job fuels my purpose, my passion and my desire to become a stronger teacher than ever.
Not only did I find my purpose with Qkids, but I have also become a role model for a couple of the most amazing kids on the planet. My daughter LOVES watching me teach and at the age of three has decided to become a teacher in her future. So many great things have come from this job. I have no idea where I would be without Qkids!

Preparing Your Teaching Background Hi Qkids teachers! Hope you are having a good week. Today Momo wants to share with you some helpful tips about how to set up your awesome teaching background. Many of you already have great props to attract students' attention; however, your teaching background is equally important since students see it for the entire class. A messy, unorganized background will not only distract students but also negatively impact your teacher rating. Your teaching style, outfit, lighting, and background all factor into your overall class rating. Below are some points you should pay attention to if you want to improve your teaching background: 1. The room lighting must be bright enough for students to see you clearly. You should try out different angles in your room and find the sweet spot . Do not point your camera toward the ceiling or light since it will be too bright for students to look at you. 2. The ideal class background
