So here I am planning on the follow-up course which will keep helping students from a total beginner all the way to be able to understand and form basic conversations in real life as well as to build their confidence.📚👩🏫✏️💪👍💕 It’s really fun to create online courses and help students around the world whose I’ve never seen in person. 💯🇹🇼🏡👩🏫📙

This year, I’ve just completed “ Total Beginner’s Pronunciation Course” which helps students to grasp the knowledge of Pinyin system and the basic knowledge of Chinese grammatical structure.
The next follow-up course will be “ A Complete HSK 1 Course for Beginners” which is the next milestone after pronunciation course. 👍💯🎉
I’m also planning on finishing “Simplified Character Course for Beginners”. ✏️📙👩🏫
Each course on my online school 🎯 targeting a specific goal and they are sold separately.
And all the courses are one time purchase, life-time access. You can go back and review as many times as you want💕📝📚

It's been about almost 5 years since I started teaching online with video lessons and via Skype.
It never has been easier as I thought it would be since the world of online business is changing and I have to constantly learn new things to improve the quality of my lessons.
Recently, I've got a couple of new challenges.
One, looking for a quiet place for work and life.
Recently, I need to find a new apartment for myself, the one I'm staying right now which I've been living for 3 years is getting a bit loud for me. It's no longer a suitable a quiet place for online Skype teaching. Even my students don't really feel so much about that, but I still decided to look for a better environment for myself.
A quieter place is better for me working on Skype and filming video lessons and a better place require more money which means I have to work extra harder!!
Two, people keep mailing me for FREE lessons or bargaining.
This makes me really frustrated since I've already offer so many good video lesson online. Teaching Chinese is my only income in life, I try to help people as much as I can. But I do need to offer my course with a reasonable price.
Many people mailed me said that they are poor or they can't afford my video lessons (the lowest rate on Patreon is 5 USD a month). I don't understand what kinda of people can't afford 5 USD a month but can afford electricity, a computer and Internet to mail a bargaining email to me?!
I've been feeling that I'm being used or being taken advantage of by those people who don't understand my handwork and don't value my profession.
It's okay that people just watch my YouTube channel for free lessons. It's also okay that people think my courses are not good enough, not helpful so they don't want to join.
But it's NOT acceptable that people think they can lower the value of my course and asking me doing free lessons for them.
I'm very sorry that some people are just in a poor condition and can't afford my lessons, I'm really sorry about that, but it's not my fault that they are poor. I work very very hard to support my own life, I'm not rich! Being poor is not the reason for you to take advantage of other hard-working people.
In order to keep my online teaching career going, I have to work long hours, I have to switch to a more expensive place for work, I have to spend money to learn new skills, I have pay and get a upgraded web-page for my online school.
So I guess I'm trying to say is...teaching online isn't as easy as people think it is. In face, I know that there are lots of jobs out there are more challenging than mine, and I do pay lots of respect for people who work hard to get what they want.
Anyway, I'll try to ignore people who want to take advantage of me and my hardwork and focus on the people/students who really value what I do then try my best to give them the best quality of my courses.
Btw, don't forget to check out my platforms :)
Wow....I just love this sooo much!!!! It writes right into my ❤️ heart I’ve never asked for a discount when enrolling a program because I know if I really want to learn something. I’ll do whatever it takes to get the education even it’s expensive for me. 💪💯 But over the years that I have been receiving requests asking me to offer my profession and expertise for free or with a low price so they can afford. I felt guilty at first for charging the price that I think I should deserve. Also, there’s another voice in my head that I’ve been taken advantage of by those who ask for a free program. Speaking from my own experience, people who usually ask for free services are the ones who will not only take granted for your hard work but also won’t genuinely appreciate your talent. And I’ve certainly work with some people like that during my teaching career. I realized that I’ve done lots of free lessons on YouTube which I’m happy to do so. And I’ll be continuing to do it. Therefore, I should really follow my heart, charge the price that I think I should deserve and work my ass off, bring out my A game for the students who really, truly, genuinely appreciate my work and benefit from it. Serving people who genuinely would value my talents and my expertise and happy to pay for my hard work is something wayyyy much more valuable than money. It gives me the fuels ⛽️ that I need to keep working and serving good lessons. It’s definitely an organic growth for my teaching career and my students. Education is priceless because it gives you the future and opportunities that you want!! So if you think education is expensive, try ignorance.

I would stay E-commerce has really benefit influenced me and my career a lot. And never did think one day I could make money at home from the internet! Of course i still have to work, but my workplace is never limited in a certain place or time. My students is not limited to my geographic location only.
I get students everywhere around the world and I can get my job done as long as I have the internet.
Well..everything comes with a good and a bad side of it. When you enjoy the freedom of being your own boss, on the other hand, you have to take the FULL responsibility for yourself and the business. As a result, you probably eventually work much more than 9-5 office people who can just punch in and out on time because taking care of your own career is much more than you can imagine. But my love for freedom and the passion for teaching manage to conquer all the downsides of being self-employed.
So far...so GOOD😊
