    Default On-line Teaching

    I'm wondering how you do on-line teaching?
    I hope there are on-line teachers who could tell me how they do this.


    * How long do you have the class in one session?
    * What do you teach your student in one day?
    * Are you specific about them learning the grammar rules or do you simply give corrections to their errors?
    * How about the mode of payment? How do you do it?
    * Could you please me more tips on teaching on-line?

    The first problem is how you get your students. I teach academic writing over the net- I don't do fixed times and not necessarily every day. I don't simply correct- I often record comments over a piece of their writing, then meet online and discuss the points via VOIP or messenger. However, it is not always easy to find students- I have noticed that a number of sites that went up offering online lessons have gone down; contacts are the most useful IMO.

    So did you find your students, Tdol?
    How long do you handle a class? and what do you do in each class?
