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 a public school, private school, or operating your own small teaching business.
Working with the students is merely one aspect of education. For instance, as more small businesses are centered 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 managing of the business is not on point, then no matter how many students you have enjoying your services, there is a good chance that the business will eventually fail. However, there is school management software 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 does'nt have to be this way though. It is time to simplify.
Teach 'n Go is a school management software program that has everything covered for your small teaching business. 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 life a whole 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. 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 behavior 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, parents and teachers will be able to communicate much better.
Trying to track down a student payment can be as difficult as finding a leprechau'ns pot of gold. Either the payment was never made (even though their parents are insisting it was) or it was misplaced and entered into the Twilight Zone. In any case, you can stop worrying about student billing when using Teach 'n Go school 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 parents and then they are able to pay for everything entirely online. No more checks and cash being handed to the teacher at busy moments. The payments will be recorded in the software 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.
One of the most frustrating aspects of running a small teaching business is trying to stay in contact with everyone. Whether it is the instructors, parents, or the students themselves, 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 Teach 'n Go school management software, you have several ways to make certain everyone understands what is happening. The Touch 'n Go dashboard provides constant updates, emails can be sent out quickly and efficiently, 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 school management system software.
If you are trying to enroll more students in your small 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 did'nt know what they were doing and random flyers hanging up around town, you probably wo'nt be getting the clientele you want. But with Teach 'n Go 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 favor.
One of the best aspects 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 students you use it for. In fact, the amount you will pay is probably less than what you charge for one lesson or class per student. Think of it this way: If Teach 'n Go 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.
