Student Success Stories!

This course helped me to just show up each day and do something to keep moving forward. This course gives you two vitally important ingredients for success, a framework for getting things done and a supportive, like-minded community. This is quite possibly the best money that I've spent in quite some time.

Tim is the ultimate cheerleader. I always felt comfortable and welcome to ask questions and offer comments. I referred to this class as the Launch Crew because it felt like one big supportive coffee club. This is a reflection on the leadership!

Grace Gilbert

Tim, this course was so helpful! I feel confident that although I may be much slower than everyone else in the Launch course at getting started, that eventually, I will be able to teach online independently. You will never know how much your support and encouragement mean!

Angie Olivarez

Tim did an excellent job delivering a course that was hands-on and made for the real world of teaching online. This course is from his experience so it is tested.

Finn Blackmore

Before Tim's course, I was completely overwhelmed and did not know where to begin. The course helped me to get organized and showed me step by step how to get my private teaching business started. Tim is a great coach! It gave me the motivation I needed to get started and Tim was always there to answer questions and help along the way.

Susan Kronner

Launch was pivotal in giving me the confidence I needed to make the move to going solo! The modules, the tutorials and the support of Tim and fellow participants all worked to provide me with the guidance and encouragement to take the leap! Thank you for getting me fully ready to Launch!

Crystal Hopkins

Tim does an excellent job presenting all of the things that you need to start a teaching business, in a way that makes everything seem less overwhelming. The timing was perfect and I sold my first package of 30 classes during the training by using the skills I learned from Tim.

    Questions Answered...

    Is this only for online teachers?

    Yes, this course is geared towards online teachers who are wanting to teach their students privately. Essentially, the course is for anyone who wants build their online teaching business. with the Chinese market.

    Do I need to already have students waiting?

    This course will help you move faster if you already have a couple of parents asking about private classes. However, we will be covering marketing and Bonus #1 will help you with finding your first students.

    How much work is involved?

    That question is hard to answer as some will work more than others. It just depends on where you are at and what time you have available. A suggested work time framework would be to work on your business for at least an hour / day.

    Is this for teaching ESL to adults or children?

    While my experience is teaching ESL to children, much of what we talk about will be applicable to adults. However, most of what we cover is geared towards teaching ESL to Chinese children.

    Do I need to have WeChat?

    While you do not have to have WeChat, it is the primary method of communication with Chinese clients. We can help you get verified and up and running with WeChat in the course so don't let that prevent you from joining!

    Is this only for the Chinese maket?

    Yes, this course is focused on the Chinese market. However, a lot of what we cover in the course will be valuable if you are focusing outside of China. That being said, most of what we are talking about is through the lens of teaching Chinese students.

    Is the course self-paced?

    Yes, it can be self-paced as you will have access to after the course finishes. I do recommend to go through it as the trainings get released if you can. The community and accountability you will get by going through it "Live" with the others will be invaluable! However, if you want to grab the course and go through it, you will have all the trainings and recordings so you won't miss out on the content.

    How long do I have access to the course?

    You have lifetime access to the course! Even though it is running "Live", once the course finishes, you will still remain in the course and can login at any time to access all of the content. The only reason you would lose access to the course is if I decide to remove the course permanently.

    After you purchase, you will receive a confirmation email of purchase. You will also receive an email with your login details for the course. In addition, you will receive a series of emails from me over the duration of the course.

    Throughout this course, I will be available on Slack, our Launch communication tool, and through email if you have questions. I will not be available for one-on-one calls but there will be 3 live coaching calls included :)

    Will you be talking about marketing outside of China?

    The short answer is no. However, a lot of the strategies and techniques are applicable to social media channels outside of China.

    I cannot wait to guide you over these next few weeks...

    Teaching online has literally changed my life. I was a former Brick & Morter classroom teacher and loved it all. However, I knew I was made for more and I felt "stuck". I felt stuck in a profession that was not giving me the joy it was giving me when I first started.

    When I found online teaching, I knew I was in the right place! Then, companies decreased their pay and many shut down. I was forced into private teaching and I started my business from the ground up.

    And I want to share with you how I did it and to assure you that anyone can do it too. I want you to experience the same freedom I have. 

    Will you give it a shot? If fear and doubt are in your way, I hope you can push it aside and trust me!

    See you soon,
