Course Reviews

“What sets this course apart from others is the combined expertise & methodology utilized by Paige & Minji. Both have vast experience in the field of online education, & how to guide individuals to success as are independent teacher from a business & educator mindset. …I have implemented several of the strategies I learned in this course in my independent teaching with positive results.” – Respectfully, Alyse Bukoski, M.A., M.Ed., CAGS

“I highly recommend this Udemy course. It’s been carefully designed to cater to teachers. It helps them understand how to embed their methodology and teaching into a business strategy. Teachers feel comfortable teaching, but when it comes to setting up a business, most of us step back and hesitate because business isn’t what we can do. This course shows how to overcome that mental block and make a step towards setting up a sustainable teaching business.” – Ann

One of the aspects of this Udemy course by Paige and Minji that has made the greatest impact on how I approach teaching independently is my shift in perspective and how what I thought I knew has been challenged and re-shaped. This is not your standard ‘how to get started’ course. Paige and Minji have created a course that helps us as educators to focus on finding our unique ‘educator/teacher identity’, and using our strengths to set ourselves apart from other independent teaching services. As much as I love being an educator, is as much as I dislike the business side of it all. However, this course has made the necessary theory relatable, and I have experienced it as an empowering guide on how to move forward in growing your own sustainable business. Minji and Paige have managed to apply their knowledge and experience in a personable way that made it easy to understand and apply.
