OMG I loved your article, is really amazing :)
Great article Altini! Thanks so much! I love the last part! :-)
Awesome article, thanks Altini! I'm sure if students pay attention to your recommendations, teachers will benefit from it as well ;)
“4. Be punctual & respectful!”
Some of you didn't show up sometimes. Most of the time, they apologized, so it was ok, but at least 1 or 2 people didn't even say sorry. A bit painful experience on italki. But the other people I talked to were perfectly on time regardless of the prices and the student.
Thank you all for reading my article! I really appreciate it :)
Massaya, I'm very sorry that you had a bad experience on Italki. I understand that things happen, and sometimes we can't help emergencies; but, if a teacher or student repeatedly does not show, without any explanation, I find it very rude and unprofessional. Fortunately you can leave feedback and/or report a problem after every session.
There's a lot of good advice here - thanks for writing it out!
The students I've enjoyed teaching the most (online and offline) are the ones who prepare themselves and have a clear goal. I definitely agree with trying several teachers if you can - it's just like having a balanced diet, isn't it?
