Shukki here from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I've been teaching English (and a little bit of Thai) for the past two years and am looking forward to the next step of my teaching journey: Udemy.
I'm planning to create a beginner's course for anyone who wishes to learn Thai.
Other than teaching, I love playing badminton, walking dogs and going hiking. Oh and most importantly, I love good food 🙂 Looking forward to being a part of this wonderful community and to learn amazing things from everyone.

Hello @AkhilVydyul818, welcome to the community. It's great to hear that you're passionate about teaching Machine Learning and Data Science, and that you're interested in emerging technologies like deep learning and natural language processing. It's also refreshing to hear that you're open to learning and unlearning, as that's an important aspect of growth.
Don't worry about not knowing how to market your courses, we're all here to support and grow together. Let's learn and make meaningful connections! 😊
Hi - my name is Amanda Hill - I started a company called The Social Media Cafe in 2010 and run a training and digital consultancy. We specialise in social and eCommerce and during lockdown, we sold 7 figures on Amazon ourselves. Businesses we work with have hit up to 6 figures.
I started as a journalist at 17 and worked for a national UK newspaper before digital stuff was a thing and have always taught something to others.
My training room and office is above our prep centre in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire and we have 2 resident office cats. We also have a rescue hamster and fish and a possibly pregnant young cat downstairs who we enticed out of the skip outside and has stayed til we can find out if she is or isn't expecting.. hopefully soon as we can't get close enough.
Hi @Alexia, welcome to the community!
Leadership & Communication - what an impactful and important area to be teaching in! I'm sure you're already making a difference in the lives of your students.
You joining the Instructor Community to explore how you can add value and get ideas for marketing is just the kind of proactive thinking we love to see here. I'm sure you'll be able to learn and contribute so much to the community!
And retiring in Mexico, how fun and exciting! I can just imagine all the adventures you would have in store. If you do decide to go, I can't wait to hear all about it. 🤩
@Bella I’m currently exploring Mexico…planning my 5th trip for 2023. Every time it’s to a different region, and I stay in local areas to experience the real daily life. They have a great luxury bus system, so I can name a bunch of places I’ve been to, and it’s been easy to navigate because of this. What I love so far is that people are kind and helpful, patient….and the food….wow.
Have fun creating courses, and give fun to your students and do not give away all the fun to your students, keep a little, just a little fun for us your community instructors.
Good luck on your courses creation and teaching!!!
