On Demand Classes5-min and 10-min classes

The On Demand Class series is designed to let teachers help students review a lesson they just learned by themselves. The On Demand Class series features three exciting lesson types:

1. Review Classes (5 minutes)
2. Language Points Lesson (5 minutes)
3. Reading Lesson (10 minutes)

Teaching time for this class is quite flexible. You simply log in during our online hours (Monday to Friday 18:00 to 23:00 and Saturday and Sunday for the whole day) and take a class whenever you're available.

Flexible teaching times.

As easy as making a phone call.

1-on-1 Class25-min Class

The 25-min Class consists of both 1-on-1 (pre-booked and Live) and 1-on-4 classes. Each class is 25 minutes long and can be scheduled through the BOXFiSH App based on your availabilities. Our system will automatically match your time slots with students who are free at the same time as you. A class will then be added to your schedule. The teaching material can be downloaded through the BOXFiSH App. Due to the length and the more varied content of this type of class, we give priority to teachers who are capable of varied teaching methods, class management, and are familiar with TPR.
We recommend that teachers sign up for the 1-on-1 pre-booked class as this is the most popular and welcomed class type among young Chinese students. The 1-on-1 classes also allows teachers to track their students’ progress.
