One of the hardest things to do when I was teaching enrichment classes and summer camps many moons ago was to know how to reach each of the children that I worked with effectively. Were they kinesthetic, visual or auditory learners? What did they enjoy doing and how do they respond to tasks and what were they good at? Each session, valuable time was taken up with learning about each child and learning to relate to them.
One of the newest tools that I have found will help you connect better with new and potential students and get to know about each indivudual is Kidzmet. With just 10 minutes effort on the part of each new pupil or participant, you can save a significant amount of time and effort!
You can screen each participant and you can also use it as a marketing tool! Once a participant creates their profile, they can print out trial coupons and even search out your business after creating their profile! Check out a detailed sample student introduction email that will give you an idea of what kinds of information you can collect and use to tailor your program to each child.
As a parent, I know that if teachers, tutors and camp counselors have this kind of info on my kids when they are planning their programs my kids will get more out of it! If you are a teacher or tutor who wants to connect better with new and potential students or a parent who wants to find a tutor who cares, you should check out Kidzmet!
