Mum's view

Name: Latife Zugurt

Location: Cyprus

Family: One wonderful son

How often do you work?
I work 6 days a week for 4 hours a day as this works well around my family commitments.

How does the job fit around your family life?
You teach and earn money from the comfort of your home. Flexible schedule is an excellent advantage. It means you have time for work and most importantly for your child. I can clean my house, prepare dinner and give lessons when my son is at school and as soon as he comes back from school, I can have some quality time with him; we play, we study, we have fun together.

How much time do you commit?
I have 24 contracted hours a week and I spend about three extra hours a day to prepare my lessons, but that`s because I like to change the materials provided.

Where do you carry out your work?
I teach at home.

Do you need a car?
I have my own car but I don't need it for this job since I teach at home.

Do you get support/training?
You get constant support from the team. The team is very professional but also very friendly. They keep motivating their teachers making us feel part of the family. All materials are provided but you are free to use extra materials and you also have the freedom to adapt these materials. There are also continuous training sessions and seminars for teachers on how to develop as teachers.

Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
You teach and earn money from the comfort of your home. You do not have to get up early to get dressed for class. I wake up in the morning, prepare my son's breakfast and send him to school and then get ready for my lessons. Briefly the flexibility allows me to be with my kid when he wakes up and after school. It’s comfortable, convenient and easy for everybody involved :-)

Do you advertise?
Not written advertisements but I tell my friends and my students in Cyprus about this company.

Are there any downsides to the role?
I cannot think of any downsides to the role since I'm extremely happy with it.
