My student’s parents don’t speak English. Do you have any parent guides in Chinese that I can send them to help with onboarding?

Yes, one of the tutors, Sarah, from our wonderful Koala Go tutor community made a comprehensive parent guide in Chinese with both Chinese and English subtitles: https://youtu.be/A6ldHL-6ROY. She even posted the video on BiliBili, the Chinese video website, so that parents can access the videos without restriction: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1Dq4y1i7yc

How does the Koala Go invoicing system work? What are the benefits of invoicing using Koala Go?

Parents from any country can pay in their local currency, using popular local payment methods (such as credit cards in the US or WeChat in China). Tutors get paid through their preferred methods amongs PayPal, Venmo, or Square Cash. That’s how simple it is! Your business will be streamlined and you can focus on growing it. Tutor Caitlin made this wonderful video to explain the benefits and how to have the conversation with the parents. Video link: https://youtu.be/fjxmf24oj6Q

Why does it look like my avatar is walking in slow motion in Playground?
