How Does It Work?
Our 3RealMates Program
Our program provides mentoring, in depth training and guidance. Tutors gets matched with students of similar age and interests in non-English speaking countries like China via an online video conference application (very similar to Skype or Zoom). With a basic curriculum template to follow the tutors are encouraged to build friendships with the students while teaching them basic spoken English.
3RealMates Peer Initiative Program Involves:
- A one-to-three tutoring of students located overseas who have registered to express their interest in learning English from a native English speaker.
- A tutor at 3RealMates will learn and develop vital skills in class management, work organisation, and appropriate interactions with those of the same age.
- 3Realmates moderator who oversees the class for quality and training purposes. This allows for customised training, coaching and feedback for all participants.
Our Tutor Growth Timeline
Here a real example of one of our tutors journey this past year with 3RealMates
Rachel Signs Up to 3RealMates Program
Mid-March of 2019, we met Rachel a year 10 student at a school seminar in Melbourne. After speaking to our team on the day she signed up for our 3RealMates program.
It was noted that Rachel was a quiet student who is highly intellectual but was not acing her classes as well as she could.
With the support of our tutor coordinators, Rachel was passing through the recruitment and training process with flying colors.
Within 2 weeks of signing up, she was ready to have her first trial class, and Rachel was more confident and outspoken than when we first met her in the seminar.
Rachel Attends Confidence Building Seminar
In late June after getting constructive feedback from us, Rachel decided to attend our Confidence building seminar to improve her confidence while teaching her students.
Rachel also informed her mentor that she has joined the computer club at her school, as she feels more productive and interested in exploring new areas.
Rachel is awarded 'Student's choice for most improved tutor'
In early August 2019, Rachel gained 5 long-term students and the feedback received showed that her clients had very high praises for Rachel's tutoring. She was also awarded 'Student's choice for most improved tutor'.
Rachel also discussed with her 3RealMates mentor that she decided to enroll into university after graduating. She decided that she wanted to have a career in IT in the future.
Rachel's Performance In School Has Improved Significantly
We checked in with the school to provide them with updates on their students' progress with our program and was told that Rachel has improved immensely academically.
Rachel is also a lot more extroverted and outspoken than when she first started the program. She was also voted top tutor of the month.
Rachel is Performing Well In School & In Our 3RealMates Program
Rachel is performing well in school as well as in our 3RealMates program. She is now more confident than ever and has told us that she is ready to start preparing for her ATAR subjects next year.
She is also thinking of starting a small business selling scented candles online and she felt very prepared with the process after attending our "How to start your own business" mentorship session.
