Many people enter into the amazing world of education because they feel becoming a teacher is a calling. It is a way to give back to not just the community, but the whole world around them. But there is much more to education than just working with kids regardless if you are teaching in public schools, private schools, or operating your own small teaching business.
Working with students is merely one aspect of education. For instance, as more small businesses are centred around providing educational services such as music lessons, tutoring, language learning, or even physical fitness, there are other things that have to be considered. If the management of the school is not on point, then no matter how many students have enjoyed your services, there is a good chance that the school will eventually fail. However, there is a school management system that can help prevent this from ever happening.
If running a business where you are educating kids was just about teaching, it would be a whole lot easier. But if you have your own business, you know that you spend at least 20 hours a week performing administration duties just so your company can keep operating. It doesn't have to be this way though. It is time to simplify with a cloud-based management software
Teach 'n Go has everything covered for your school. It is already being used in more than 30 countries with numerous small education businesses absolutely raving about it. Listed below are just a few areas where Teach 'n Go will make your school administration a lot easier
When you have countless students walking in and out of your doors at all times of the day, it can get a bit confusing. And the confusion extends to everyone. Parents get mixed up when their child is due for their lesson and the teacher may have their times off as well. This is where a simple management system like Teach 'n Go can ensure everyone is on the same page. Parents will have access to their child’s schedule through Teach 'n Go, and educators will know exactly who is coming in for the next lesson and when. This will cut your downtime dramatically as there is no more missed lessons or people waiting around.
Plus, an added bonus through the parent portal for Teach 'n Go allows teachers to inform parents on just how their child is doing and their behaviour during the lessons. This is sometimes hard to communicate in person when the child is being dropped off and picked up so quickly. But now after every lesson, a student and teacher will be able to communicate much better. School management made easy!
Trying to track down a student payment can be as difficult as finding a leprechaun's pot of gold. Either the payment was never made (even though they are insisting it was) or it was misplaced and entered into the Twilight Zone. In any case, they can stop worrying about student billing when using Teach 'n Go student management software.
You can simply set the fees for the lesson and Teach 'n Go will take care of the rest. A beautiful invoice will be sent to the student and then they are able to pay for everything entirely online. No more cheques and cash being handed to management at busy moments. The payments will be recorded in the student information system and you will be able to know exactly who is up to date and who is falling behind. No more having to play the role of a loan shark when you want your money. Just send out an automated email when the payment is past due. Our management solution is built around simplicity - manage, track and ensure payments are made in the platform with a click of a button. Simple.
One of the most frustrating aspects of running a small teaching business is trying to stay in contact with teachers students and parents. Whether it is a quick phone call or email, it can seem like an impossible task. Playing phone tag is no fun and you never really know if text messages are read or not. Trying to stay in touch with those that are bad about communicating can eat up a good portion of your day.
With our student management system, you have several ways to make certain everyone understands what is happening. The Teach 'n Go system provides constant updates, emails can be sent out quickly and efficiently by management or teachers, and course material can be shared with the parents and student well ahead of time. No wasted time trying to relay messages or track people down. It is all contained in the online software.
If you are trying to enrol more students in your teaching business, the best way to go about it is through making the company look as legitimate as possible. If you have a website that appears to be thrown together by someone that didn't know what they were doing and random flyers hanging up around town, you probably won't be getting the clientele you want. But using Teach 'n Go's software, your business will appear to be as professional as possible. And when parents are deciding to pay for extra lessons outside of public school for their child, professionalism can go a long way in helping them make the decision in your favour. Use a school management system that best showcases your institution.
As your school admissions increase, naturally your student data will begin to grow. This is where tools like Teach 'n Go can be key to manage student data that continues to scale. Attendance, reporting, enrollment and grades all become more difficult as education institutions input data on different spreadsheets. Administrators face a daunting task of ensuring files are locked, and GDPR regulations are being met if based in Europe. This is where a fully integrated platform like Teach 'n Go can help store vital growing information as your scale. Teachers and students data can be found by a simple search in the management software. No need to worry about lost grades or missing attendance with our online software. Institutions have a solution that has all of the key features required to help you manage your school.
One of the best features of Teach 'n Go is you are only paying for what you use. You are paying just one flat fee a month based on the number of student who use it. In fact, the amount you will pay is probably less than what you charge for one lesson per student. Think of it this way: If a student management system helps you land just one more tutoring session a month, then it pays for itself. No matter if you have 30 students or 500 students, Teach 'n Go will have you covered at a very reasonable price.
