Having trouble getting started on Cambly Kids? We have quite a few students looking for a wonderful tutor just like you, but sometimes, it can be difficult to make your profile stand out. Don't worry, we're here to help!
Here are four Pro Tips you can follow to increase your bookings on Cambly Kids!
1. Create a Kid-Friendly Profile
Marketing yourself to children is a little different from marketing to adults. Your profile photo and video should still be professional, but don't be afraid to get a little silly! Use your profile picture to show off a puppet, colorful background, props, or your teaching personality. Here is a helpful article about how to set up The Perfect Cambly Kids Classroom.
2. Make the Lesson Fun
No one likes sitting through a lecture, especially in a foreign language. Make your lessons engaging with props, reward systems, and whatever else you can think of! Use TPR to overcome the language barrier and get your students excited about learning English! These Best Practices Videos are foundational in teaching a successful Kids lesson. Remember, you’re making a serious difference in someone’s life by being silly! What’s more fun than that?
3. Impress Parents
The number one thing I hear about from parents is feedback! Sending a message of feedback and encouragement after the class is a fantastic way to show a parent you were focused on their child, and that you are able to meet their academic needs. Here's a quick example of what your feedback might look like:
"Hello! Great job in class today! You did really well with [lesson activity] and with your pronunciation of [lesson vocabulary]. Amazing! Make sure to keep practicing your pronunciation of [other lesson vocabulary]. You'll get it in no time! See you in the next class. :)"
4. Keep an Open Schedule
Parents love to see consistent schedules. If you can open at least 20 hours at the same times every week, you're bound to get regular students in no time! Our peak times are roughly 9:00 – 15:00 UTC. You can find more information about that here. You can also schedule your availability for these times as "Cambly Kids Only" if you'd like. Remember to message your students before their class to cut down on no-shows!
5. Update Your Regional Accent
If you select your accent/dialect this will increase your bookings as you will be more discoverable by parents! Go to Settings on Tutor Profile and scroll down to Spoken Languages or follow this step in this video below!
