"Imagine, said Georgina. This is possible because of a community of people like you!"
Over the past two years we’ve been focused exclusively on online classes, perfecting both the growth and educational models so that teachers and students thrive while teaching and learning respectively.
The benefits of online learning are unquestionable in terms of measurable quality standards and to that we can add the convenience of time optimization and work life balance. The global trends show clearly that the future direction that private tutoring will take will be online. On the other side though, competition is bigger as well.
As for in-person classes, there will always be a local market of people that prefer in-person lessons and that is easier to cope with if we are strategic and don’t rely only on one particular individual to teach another individual in a one-to-one in-person class.
We have to rethink a solution for safe in-person classes that would provide the satisfaction of good quality classes but also ensure teachers making good income without implying an impossible increase in price for the students.
Collaborating as a community is the key to achieving it.
You may not be able to teach in person because you live in a different country from your students.
You may not want to travel before and after every class for one student only.
But you can have a solution to in-person class requests.
This solution is called CLASSES IN BARS (coffee shops, public places) where GROUPING is possible and it's key to making a good margin, while students learn pleasantly in small groups over a coffee.
Technology has made it possible to group people from all over the world according to their common needs and similarities in learning. This is what’s behind the success of open web classes.
The same concept is applicable to grouping students in bars.
Every student can choose the bar or public place where there is an open class and join.
And every teacher can choose to open a group in a public place and receive students of their own or students of other partners.
Each one of these interactions has a good benefit. Here are the economical margins from grouping:
The decision whether to keep offering online classes or add in-person classes to your offer is a prerogative of each teacher. In Oxinity we want you to base your decision on feasible parameters that would make you decide.
You can include in-person classes to your offer and use the infrastructure of the existing open bar classes to direct your students to them, in case they prefer that modality.
Or you can take the lead and open groups in bars where to teach your students and receive students of other partners.
Our technology is there for you and it's operating amazingly fine with both online and in-person classes.
The choice is yours and so are the margins!
