Step 1: Apply to Palfish here .
After you apply, I will connect with you. My username is Jillian S. If you have any questions regarding the application or interview process, please message me through the app. If you don't see me connect with you, go to your setting and enter my referral code.
Step 2: TESOL Course
If you don't currently have a TESOL certification, the one I am currently recommending is this Groupon course. It's currently $19, meets the criteria for acceptance, and is also the easiest one that I've seen people do. The price for this changes sometimes, because it is a Groupon deal, but it is usually $19.
Step 3: Schedule your interview.
If you haven't completed your profile yet, log on and do so. Once your profile is completed, you will be able to schedule your interview.
Step 4: Practice
You can log in early. Once you do, go ahead and check out the slides. Make your family laugh at you a little by practicing teaching. Dance to the song, use some toys to assist you, grab a puppet if you have one, and just get used to the classroom and material! Play with the filters, located on smiley-face on the far bottom right of the screen.
----Other Interview Tips----
-SMILE. A lot! People like HAPPY :) teachers!
-Search videos on YouTube about TPR. That stands for Total Physical Response. In a nutshell, it's using your hands and body movement (and getting them to do the same) to assist in teaching. This is NECESSARY to be a good teacher.
-Join the Facebook Group. I run this group, and will be happy to answer any questions you have at any point.
Step 5: Quiz
If you pass your interview, you'll be given a notification within a day or so, along with a short quiz. You can find all of the answers in the FAQ.
6. If you pass all of these steps, you will be accepted as an Official Kid's Course Palfish teacher!
