Virtual Hindi Teacher (Part-Time)
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
Hi - I am looking for a Native Hindi teacher to teach me Hindi. We will start as soon as possible.
I like structure, so you must be organised as you will need to plan, prepare and deliver 2 lessons (75 minutes each) via Skype per week.
I recommend that we follow a popular book/course - I am happy to purchase 2 copies - one for you and one for me.
I suggest that I do some preparatory work before each lesson so that you can correct my mistakes, constantly test me (from Hindi to English and English to Hindi), etc.
Lessons should act as building blocks and assume that I am fairly new to Hindi. I do have a reasonable understanding of the Hindi alphabet, numbers 1-100 and basic greetings.
I'm happy to commit 75 minutes on Skype on Monday & Thursday (between 07:30 - 09:30 IST) plus time for homework and tests.
I anticipate that 60% of our time will be teaching me to speak/understand Hindi and the rest of the time reading and writing. The sessions should also include recap/revision and new learning topics. I have bought an on-line Hindi course from rocketlanguages dot com which could be used in the early lessons to supplement lessons.
I am prepared to do 45 minutes of home-work twice per week which should include practical tests for me.
You must have:
* Fluent English speaking skills to be able to actively engage with me and explain concepts by translating during our lessons;
* Excellent internet & Skype connections with no background noises/distractions;
* Taught Hindi or be used to training people.
Budget per week = 4 hours
Budget: Less than $6 per hour.
As part of your application, please tell me which books/courses you would recommend that we follow.
If you ignore this instruction, your application WILL be deleted.
