Rush Works With HR People

Rush contracts with enterprise companies. He works with their HR departments to find employees that can benefit from his services.

  • Chris provides one-on-one lessons with executives in need of English tutoring. He tailors the lesson to exactly the parts of speech the student struggles with.
  • Chris also uses digitized textbooks. Lessons mostly cover speaking, but they also work on listening, reading, and writing.

Rush wanted to ensure that he provided the best, most frictionless experience to his clients during their online lessons. This came down, in large part, to the quality of the tools he uses, including his communications software.

“Most people in my business use a popular consumer-grade solution. But I wanted something more professional,” said Rush.

For a while Chris used another cloud solution, but it lacked white boarding and annotation. It was  a difficult experience for his users.

“How to turn on the audio was completely unintuitive, which was hard on my clients. So for a while I was using one solution for audio, and another for video. That was just unnecessarily complicated.”

Rush Uses Zoom

Zoom is the complete package! It has the video and audio quality, white boarding, it is simple for people to join, and it works well in low bandwidth, exclaimed Rush.

The last point being crucial because Rush teaches many of his lessons from low bandwidth areas such as national parks as he travels around the US in an RV.

Rush pairs Zoom with a wireless headset, mouse, and HD webcam from Logitech. Add in his Macbook Air and a wireless card, and he has a fully mobile, high quality teaching environment.

His lessons are 100% online and getting new business relies on providing quality experiences and lessons for his students. That’s why he switched to Zoom and why he sticks with Zoom.
