Episode 113 When to move from 1:1s to group teaching

Posted on

Listen to it on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Sooner or later many language teachers start to think about moving from offering only 1:1 lessons to group programs. But it’s not as simple as grouping together your 1:1 clients based on their CEFR level and telling them „see you on Tuesday at 6 PM”. 

First of all, I’m not a fan of creating offers and marketing them based on language proficiency levels. I believe learning languages is not about jumping from one level to another. It’s much more effective to create group programs for clients with similar challenges and needs. 

Before you start to create and market your group program you need to do the foundational work – know your audience, then create a minimum viable product and use information from your students to run an effective marketing campaign launch the best possible course. 

That’s this week’s episode of Get richer, teacher podcast I talk all about creating and launching group programs.

Hey, I’m Ola!

For the last 2 years I have been helping language teachers like you build online brands, connect with their perfect students and make more money. I used to be a teacher, a teacher trainer and even ran my own language school in the past, but I am now focused on coaching teachers full-time (and I love it!) So far I have helped over 400 language educators from all over the world and my mission is to see the world where teachers thrive, enjoy the hell out of life and their job and have a great impact on their students lives (without burnout or selling their souls).
