Do it yourself, 3D hand
A fun activity for your students!
You could get them to write up a set of instructions for how to do this (Procedural Essay).
First, draw around your hand.
Secondly, draw horizonal lines across your hand, making curved lines to connect the left and right sides of your hand and fingers.
And so on….
Have you got any other ideas about how this could be used in an English lesson?
One of the best ways to make money as an English teacher is by giving private lessons, and there is a huge demand for this in Turkey. Many potential students of English have busy family and work lives which prevent them from attending an English course at the weekend or in the evenings.
However, they are keen to learn English and they may actually need to learn English for career development. This need can be addressed through private lessons and many students will pay a serious premium to be taught 1-1 in their own home.
A great deal of money can be made this way, but starting from scratch isn’t easy. That said, if you know a few secrets and learn a few tricks of the trade you can make an excellent living, while at the same time staying in control of your working hours.
The challenge is that many teachers find that they get the odd private student here and there but they don’t stay on that long, and its hard to make a full time living. There is a solution to this problem and there is a way to create a full time income that you are in control of. Everything is explained below.
