Verbling Teacher Code of Conduct
1. Be a Verbling Ambassador
Maintain a positive attitude about Verbling at all times - this means never making negative or disparaging comments about the platform. Remember, for many students, you are the face of Verbling!
2. Be professional, respond quickly
It's important to consistently ensure that Verbling students have a great experience with you as a teacher, so always remember to maintain a high degree of professionalism. Most importantly, make sure to respond quickly to incoming requests and messages from your current students.
3. Attend all classes and arrive on time
It’s important to maintain a 100% attendance rate and to avoid unscheduling and requesting to reschedule. Of course, unforeseen circumstances do occur, but as a rule, please keep attendance at 100% and keep unscheduling and rescheduling to a minimum.
4. Make every effort to help
New students might encounter technical difficulties. Please be patient and utilize the steps in our troubleshooting article to help them solve the issue.
If all else fails, encourage them to contact Verbling Support at firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Retain your students
Learning a language takes time and requires persistence. To help your students in their language learning journey, encourage your students to take lessons as frequently as possible. Try to turn your lessons into a habit for your students, and always suggest a next lesson.
6. Provide a reason for any lesson change
If you cancel, request reschedule, unschedule, or make any other change to the lesson, it is required to communicate with the student and explain why you are making the change in the box provided.
