Walk The 51Talk Davao
On December 5, 2015, 51Talk, the number one online English platform in China and the Philippines, held the third leg of the Walk the 51Talk home-based teachers conference in Davao City. 51Talk is the largest online English teaching platform in the Philippines with more than 4,000 home-based online English teachers across the Philippines. The conference was well-attended by hundreds of 51Talk teachers, both old and new. The teacher came from all over Mindanao, not just from Davao but from Cagayan de Oro, Surigao, Negros, General Santos City, and Zamboanga. They learned the best practices in order to succeed in their home-based online English teaching career.
VP of Philippine Operations, Jennifer Que, started off the learning conference with an emphasis on the habits that will enable teachers to take control of their career as home-based online educators. She said, Teachers who survive and thrive in this business are those who embody the 51Talk teacher standards. Being home-based is more difficult. You have to have very strong self-discipline and you must invest in your technology, your home office, and yourself. It is your business and your success is in your hands. Training Director Hyw Davies then gave an inspirational message about how the teachers of 51Talk are changing the game of online English education in China and how teachers can continue making an impact on their students.
Teachers Novie and Tiger, 51Talks top teachers in Mindanao, also shared enlightening speeches with their co-teachers on how to succeed as a home-based online English teacher.
Getting the teachers together in a conference helps us all understand that we are one piece of a huge puzzle and how much we are affecting and making life changing experiences for people of a nation who dont speak our language, said Teacher Jason O Connor, a native speaker who has been based here in the Philippines and teaching with 51Talk for more than a year.
Teacher Yesannie, who had been borrowing a friends laptop for 8 months in order to teach with 51Talk, walked home with the biggest prize of the daya brand-new laptop just for her.
51Talk has a lot more in store for its home-based teachers in the coming year to help pave the way for their success as game changers in the online English education industry. Future activities will also ensure that the 51Talk online teachers continue to walk the 51Talk.
