Resources for Building Your Personal Brand http://www.tutorsloop.net/resources-for-building-your-personal-brand/ http://www.tutorsloop.net/resources-for-building-your-personal-brand/#respond Sun, 07 Feb 2016 23:36:34 +0000 http://www.tutorsloop.net/?p=2166 Everyone knows what a brand is and why it’s good for large businesses, but why would you want to build your own personal brand? Whether you are self-employed or working for someone, whether you are a freelancer or a business owner, you can benefit from having your own personal brand. It reflects what you really are about and allows you to build a social platform and a network. In more practical terms, it shows your abilities, increases your chances of positive exposure and allows you to market your skills or business.

The first thing that a prospective employer or a potential customer do nowadays is look you up online. Often, the chances of you getting that job interview or that offer depend on what they find about you on the Internet. By building your personal brand, you can show the best of yourself and present yourself as a professional with unique and trustworthy skills. You want to be in control of the impression other people have of you.

You don’t need to be self-employed in order to start building a personal brand. You can do it in your spare time and not necessarily stick to things that reflect your organization or your boss’ ideas. Rather, you can create your own unique presence.

What can you do to succeed? Let’s take a look at some tools that are at your disposal.

• Networking in real-life

While the bulk of what you do might be online, building your own brand means you have to interact with people and make networks with them in person. Meeting people can help you make useful connections and show them your best side in person. That impression is going to be supported by an online presence, but that does not replace real-life networking yet.

• Social media presence and your website

The social media gives you an unprecedented way of reaching out to others. You can choose the social media sites that adjust better to your needs. In general, it’s better to have several online profiles, although it’s likely that you will be focused on keeping two-three regularly updated.

You might choose to have your own website and promote yourself through social media. In general, these tools can be adapted to your needs. LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other websites can be used to great effect to create a presence. It is important to post regularly and to make it a habit, but it is also very important to offer quality content that is engaging for your audience. While constancy is important, in general, quality matters more than quantity. It’s better to have a single thought-out post daily than to post several times a day without much substance.

You might consider what sort of content you want to post; however, it’s a good idea to have photos and videos in order to engage your audience, to draw their attention and to make the content easier to share. While articles, posts and tweets are great content, it’s a good idea to complement them with visual content as well.

In general, social media offers many possibilities. In order to build a good presence, you need to focus on several profiles that will be updated more or less regularly.

• Other Internet resources

Most people stick to real-life networking and to social media, as well as to their own websites. However, this doesn’t mean that there is nothing else to be done. There are different strategies that can help you separate your personal brand from other people’s. The solution is to do thing and use resources that few people have tried. This speaks of your creativity and innovation.

One example is to sell and share your knowledge and expertise, as well as to be able to reach out many people. You can do this by using sites like www.tutorsloop.net, which allows you to create recorded sessions that you can sell and to hold live sessions which allow you a direct contact with your audience. This shows your skills in actions and it allows you to demonstrate your initiative by starting new projects and by applying what you know and sharing it with others.

4 Myths about Online Education http://www.tutorsloop.net/4-myths-about-online-education/ http://www.tutorsloop.net/4-myths-about-online-education/#respond Sun, 07 Feb 2016 22:59:45 +0000 http://www.tutorsloop.net/?p=2190 You wish you could, but you can’t. Your constant apprehension gets in the way each and every time that thought of advancing your education through an online medium comes to your mind. Why your apprehension didn’t come as a surprise, the myths that gave birth to it are simply unbelievable. But I’m here to clear your doubts. After reading this, you will have no reason to want to wait to find the best online program that‘s suitable for you.

Below are the top 4 myths about online education.

Myth #1—You must stay glued to your computer screen
This is exactly the opposite of what’s being preached here. If the truth must be told, once you get yourself enrolled in an online program, you can work at your own pace; regular campus university lectures are predetermined by the professor, so also can you fix your own schedules. For online programs, the classroom could be anywhere—home, vacation, or work; the decision is entirely yours!

Myth # 2—Most employers won’t accept online degrees
Before now, online degrees were relegated to the background and considered unaccepted by most employers, but times have changed and in this day and age, they’ve gained credibility, owning to the high quality associated with the system. The system is designed with the needs of a working class adult learner in mind. And also developed with the consultation of experienced professionals that ensure that students learn what is required to succeed in a working environment.

Myth #3— Online education is very faster and less credible
Online degrees can happen so fast, but truly, and for the most part, it takes as long as a campus degree. When you consider the work schedules of most students, you’ll quite agree it is impossible to devote all day to their online degree programs. But this has got nothing to do with its credibility— not less credible than an on-campus degree.
According to carreerbuilder.com, employers are quite impressed by the fact that an employee has taken the advantage of the internet to expand his knowledge and advance his career forward.

Myth #4—The virtual classroom is not personalized in any way
For the fact that you’re not in a classroom with your fellow students, and also a teacher, it does not mean that personal attention is relegated to the back ground. So many online teachers, most often than not leave questions and comments in the appropriate section at the end of the lesson, and also provide students with their email address for students to contact them.

Don’t let these myths deter you, advance your career in the best way you can, as you exploit the opportunities an online education brings to the table.

6 steps to increase your self-esteem And Self Confidence http://www.tutorsloop.net/6-steps-to-increase-your-self-esteem-and-self-confidence/ http://www.tutorsloop.net/6-steps-to-increase-your-self-esteem-and-self-confidence/#respond Wed, 03 Feb 2016 23:16:08 +0000 http://www.tutorsloop.net/?p=2154 High self-esteem or self-confidence, is not something some lucky people are born with, a lot of it lies in our upbringing, and how our self-image have been build up through life. If we want happiness, success and fulfillment, we need high self-esteem. If we appreciate ourselves, and look at us as worthy of whatever we find important, we will automatically have high self-esteem and a strong self-image, which is our conception of our beliefs about ourselves.

In fact how we see ourselves will always influence our thoughts, actions, feelings and behavior. And all that put together with our abilities and from that comes the results we produce in our life. So if we have low self-esteem, we will have an inner image of ourselves as some sort of a failure or defeat, and we will see ourselves as not very worthy, and probably feel like we are a victim of circumstance and bad luck.

People with high self-esteem, are not beating themselves up when they fail at something, they go right back to being optimistic, and see what some might see as failure, as a success, much like Thomas Edison described it when inventing the electric light bulb. “ I don’t’ see myself failing 3000 times with this, I am certain that it will work, and I am 3000 tries closer to success.” Not quite accurately what he said, but I think you get the point here.
From this we can also see that high self-esteem people have a sense of direction, and a feel for what they do as important. When things don’t work out right for them, they usually stand back, and look objectively at their results, and find what they can correct in order to produce another result, as opposed to low self-esteemed people, who often do the exact same thing to get the exact same results, and they don’t have a clue why.

So, what is the secret to high self-esteem? Basically, it is accepting the self, and then peeling off the layers of conditioning and lies that have caused self-esteem and self-confidence to decrease and be buried.
What we can do to increase our self-esteem and confidence?

1. Accept where you are in life, and don’t keep beating up yourself when you fail at something.
2. Get at peace with your past, your weaknesses and your strengths.
3. Don’t take yourself so seriously, we all make mistakes, and it’s not the end of the world every time.
4. Work on loving yourself for what you are, we are all unique persons, and we all have a worth in life. And try to understand that you are here for a purpose.
5. Remember and cherish your successes, no matter how small they are, it will help your mind learn that success is a part of you. Praise yourself when you achieve something, it is you’re achievement, and praising yourself for your success is quite the opposite of beating yourself up for failing.
6. Finally, set goals for yourself, plan your successes, and reward yourself, at least emotionally by praising yourself whenever you achieve some sort of a goal, make it small achievable goals to begin with, it is a great confidence booster to achieve a goal, no matter how small it may seem to others, this is your life, go out and get it.

Do these 6 steps regularly, take action, and you will be well on your way to more self-esteem and self-confidence, put your all in it and take back the life you deserve.

Developing Countries And Online Education: Are they catching up? http://www.tutorsloop.net/can-online-education-help-the-developing-countries-catch-up-with-developed-countries/ http://www.tutorsloop.net/can-online-education-help-the-developing-countries-catch-up-with-developed-countries/#respond Wed, 27 Jan 2016 21:37:48 +0000 http://www.tutorsloop.net/?p=2181 Academics in developing countries not еngаgіng оnlіnе tеасhіng оn a dаіlу bаѕіѕ are mаkіng a рrоfеѕѕіоnаl mistake. Undoubtedly, thе rеѕultѕ оf dеер cuts tо public education budgеtѕ make thіѕ idea plausible since thеrе ѕееmѕ tо no visible end to the tеасhеr lауоffѕ on thе trаdіtіоnаl саmрuѕ. Obvіоuѕlу, аnу еduсаtоr with аn еаrnеd grаduаtе dеgrее or any teacher wіth a bасhеlоr dеgrее who іѕ wіllіng to enroll іn grаduаtе ѕсhооl аnd еаrn a master dеgrее can асtіvеlу аddrеѕѕ this situation bу lеаrnіng how to tеасh online fоr the thоuѕаndѕ оf роѕt-ѕесоndаrу academic іnѕtіtutіоnѕ thаt offer оnlіnе соllеgе сlаѕѕеѕ to thеіr enrolled college and university students.

Addіtіоnаllу, new and rеturnіng соllеgе ѕtudеntѕ are very еnthuѕіаѕtіс about the convenience of bеіng аblе tо еаrn an асаdеmіс degree frоm thеіr реrѕоnаl computers at home оr аt wоrk because a growing number оf students еnrоllеd іn community colleges аnd fоur-уеаr ѕtаtе unіvеrѕіtіеѕ are nоn-trаdіtіоnаl students with family аnd еmрlоуmеnt оblіgаtіоnѕ that mаkе traveling to a remote рhуѕісаl саmрuѕ at odd hоurѕ of thе dау оr еvеnіng a рrоblеm.

Thіѕ means that educators соnсеrnеd аbоut the future of their professional lives should tаkе a hard look at the bеnеfіtѕ of an online tеасhіng schedule that саn bе сооrdіnаtеd from рrасtісаllу аnу ѕроt on the glоbе thаt рrоvіdеѕ ассеѕѕ tо thе online соllеgе dеgrее рrоgrаmѕ lосаtеd оn thе Intеrnеt.

Addіtіоnаllу, the lack оf аnу nееd tо bе рhуѕісаllу present оn a раrtісulаr саmрuѕ literally increases thе numbеr оf post-secondary іnѕtіtutіоnѕ аn online teacher can wоrk for аt аnу gіvеn tіmе.

The nеxt соnсrеtе step to take аftеr сrеаtіng thе аррlісаtіоn schedule is tо lеаrn hоw nаvіgаtе thе Internet ԛuісklу аnd ѕmооthlу frоm a реrѕоnаl соmрutеr so that іt іѕ роѕѕіblе to еntеr аnd exit thе vаrіоuѕ роѕt-ѕесоndаrу асаdеmіс wеbѕіtеѕ on a dаіlу basis.

Undoubtedly, mаnу соllеgе іnѕtruсtоrѕ in developing countries wіll bе ѕhосkеd tо have thеіr nоtіоnѕ of traditional academic еmрlоуmеnt dеѕсrіbеd аѕ a рrоfеѕѕіоnаl mіѕtаkе.

Why is it important to transfer knowledge? http://www.tutorsloop.net/why-is-it-important-to-transfer-knowledge/ http://www.tutorsloop.net/why-is-it-important-to-transfer-knowledge/#respond Tue, 26 Jan 2016 20:38:14 +0000 http://www.tutorsloop.net/?p=2148 We live in a world of information. Today, more than ever, we have an unprecedented capacity of sharing what we create, learn and establish with others through the Internet. We can communicate with people from all over the world and make our knowledge available for them to learn from. However, why is it important that we transfer our knowledge to others?

The world is undergoing a quick process of globalization, that is, we are more closely connected than ever before. Today, there is a real possibility to help people from all over the world to benefit from the knowledge base that is being developed everywhere. Different people can contribute to that knowledge base and anyone can learn from it. Transferring knowledge from one person to another allows many individuals to reap the benefits, to communicate it to others and to share the knowledge.

For example, positive psychology is a relatively recent branch of psychology. However, it is a branch that many professionals have tried to share with others. Since positive psychology focuses on the study of happiness, sharing their achievements and knowledge about how a person can improve their life helps many people improve their lives. What is more, each person who benefits from their knowledge can further share that knowledge, helping more and more individuals.

For many centuries different countries were cut off from each other. People in Australia had no idea what people in Egypt were doing and vice versa. So, positive developments could take years to reach the other side of the planet. Now we can share our knowledge quickly and efficiently, an arrangement that benefits us all.

In general, transferring knowledge in today’s world is very important. It would seem that as we become more connected, we can also do more to help each other and together to build a joint base of knowledge.

5 tips for finding the perfect tutor http://www.tutorsloop.net/five-tips-for-finding-the-perfect-tutor/ http://www.tutorsloop.net/five-tips-for-finding-the-perfect-tutor/#respond Sun, 10 Jan 2016 02:56:25 +0000 http://www.tutorsloop.net/?p=2175 At TutorsLoop, we have many lessons on everything from how to speed up your WordPress install to lessons in basic algebra, but just as we have many courses on offer, we also have hundreds of tutors and, of course, students.
Every course is different, every tutor is different and every student is different. Which is why finding a tutor that suits your style of learning is important.

Here are five tips for finding the perfect tutor:

1. What is their experience?
If you can’t contact your tutor directly, be sure to read about their background and experience. You’re here to learn and you can only learn from someone who is experienced in the field they’re teaching in. So, be sure to look at their practical experience in the area as well as any previous teaching experience they may have had. Experience truly counts when it comes to teaching any topic!

2. Check your tutor’s references
While TutorsLoop is all about online learning, when it comes to face-to-face tutoring, take the time to do a little due diligence before handing over your money. Ask your tutor for references and take the time to check those references. It may just be a via a quick email or a two-minute phone call, but check to see what sort of experience your tutor’s former pupils have had. Don’t forget to ask about whether they met any learning goals they would have set when they started.

3. Male vs female
While a tutor’s gender doesn’t have anything to do with their ability to teach, or their overall knowledge in an area, it may make a difference to the student, especially younger students, so when searching for a tutor, if their gender does make a difference, be sure to specify that when putting out feelers for the right tutor.

4. Ensure your tutor’s teaching style matches the student’s learning style
This is a big one. Experienced tutors can match their teaching style to the students they’re teaching. Not every student learns the same way. Some like to learn by rote, others require a more hands-on, first-hand teaching experience and your tutor will have to be able to match their student’s style. If they can’t, well, as good as they may be, you’re not going to learn with them as well as you will with someone who understands how you need to be taught.

5. What level do they teach at?
It’s probably overkill to hire a tutor with a pHD in Economics if you just want to learn tenth grade economics and, equally, there’s no point hiring a high school student with an A-average in Mathematics to tutor a university-level Maths student. While the high school tutor may be a whiz at their level, they’re probably not going to be able to cope with teaching the level of discrete mathematics needed by a computer science student. Not only will their approaches to their students be quite different, they’ll, likely, have very different methods of teaching.

Your Career and Emotional Intelligence http://www.tutorsloop.net/your-career-and-emotional-intelligence/ http://www.tutorsloop.net/your-career-and-emotional-intelligence/#respond Fri, 01 Jan 2016 22:33:09 +0000 http://www.tutorsloop.net/?p=2143 Nobody could deny that intelligence is important to succeed in your career, however, what about emotional intelligence? Even though the concept of emotional intelligence has been around for a while, it’s still given less attention and importance, despite the fact that it can be a great asset for achieving success.

What is emotional intelligence? It refers to the ability of understanding emotions, expressing them in a healthy manner, identifying other people’s emotions and empathizing with them. In general, it refers to all the skills related to emotions and to the ability of managing them. These skills help you on both personal and interpersonal levels. It helps you have a better self-control, motivation and self-confidence. On the interpersonal level, emotional intelligence gives you what is known as “people skills”. You can communicate, be a leader, negotiate and work with others better thanks to these capacities.

These abilities are sought after in the job market. In today’s world, you need to be able to perform your job effectively, but also to be a good team player and a good leader. Most fields of work require the person to have good skills of communication and collaboration, for which you need things like empathy and self-control, linked to emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence can also help you in other matters. It usually makes you better connected to your needs and more adept at figuring out how to deal with stress and negative emotions, so you can avoid burn-out and manage the work-related stress without getting exhausted.

In general, people with higher emotional intelligence tend to receive better evaluations from their superiors and co-workers. They tend to be more successful in their careers and to perform better in their jobs. All in all, emotional intelligence has been found to be a stronger predictor for career success that traditional intelligence as expressed by the I.Q.

So emotional intelligence seems to be almost a requirement for a successful career. However, many people are not taught or even discouraged from exercising these abilities. The good news is that emotional intelligence can be increased and that any person can learn to improve their people skills with enough practice.

There are different exercises and practices you can use to boost your emotional intelligence. The choice of which is best for you will depend on the specific skill you would like to develop and your individual preferences.

For instance, a practice that is good for increasing awareness and self-control is meditation. The regular practice of meditation helps you become more aware of your inner state and identify what you are feeling. It also helps you manage stress and attain more control over your thoughts and feelings.

Another useful practice is journal writing. It would be important to write down your feelings, thoughts and the situation that made you feel a certain way. If you do this regularly, you can develop your ability to identify what you are feeling and control those emotions better.

For example, a person who has anger issues through this exercise might see that the situations that make them angry are those in which they feel powerless. Next time they feel that way, they can get a better hold of their anger, as they know where it’s coming from. The person can also seek to regain control over the situation so as not to feel anger over powerlessness.

Another technique is to work on one’s thinking patterns. If your thoughts tend to be on the negative side, like “I can’t do this”, “I always fail” and other like these, then you can work on changing those thoughts to more positive ones. It will help you experience more self-confidence and more positive emotions. For instance, instead of saying “I can’t do this”, you can think “I will do my best”.

In conclusion, emotional intelligence is very important for a successful career. It involves being able to work with one’s emotions, as well as to identify other people’s emotions. It allows for good communication and collaboration, two very sought workplace abilities. You can improve your emotional intelligence with different practices depending on which skill you would like to improve.
