Lots of opportunities from a laptop
You've got this! Start an exciting career as an online English teacher today!


Like the many digital nomads who travel the world virtually, teaching English online gives you the opportunity to earn money cooperating with students of all ages and backgrounds, positively impact and support their learning of English from across the globe – permit free! All this you will be able to do from the comfort of your own home while working flexibly around other commitments. You can even choose to explore further career opportunities while continuing to teach and inspire students. All you need to change the lives of others as well as your own is a strong internet connection, laptop, webcam and headphones – it's that simple!

Due to the growing demand by employers and with the ongoing global pandemic situation, more teachers are relying on online teaching jobs to fulfil their personal and professional goals. If ever you wanted to explore the world, from tropical South America to countless cultures of South-east Asia, you still can! Online teaching eliminates your need to travel, instead allowing you to work remotely and safely from home, whether in the morning before taking your kids to school or during the night after tending to your other commitments. Working as an online English teacher not only provides you the opportunity to earn good money, but allows you to meet and contribute to the learning of global students, from young learners in China to adults and business professionals in Costa Rica. You will in turn gain valuable experience and improve on a number of skills both individually and as a teacher.

Choosing to teach English online gives you the option of working either full-time or part-time roles around your own schedule. You can also teach to your preferred class, whether private one on one with an adult or a group setting of ten young learners. The prospect of this may seem daunting, yet with most online teaching jobs your role won’t necessarily be about teaching the mechanics of the English language (except for advanced classes) but to engage students in conversational English. There is also potential for online teachers to earn well, where you’re not only paid for communicating English, but you can teach without any prior expertise. This means you will have the chance to develop key skills such as cross-cultural awareness, independence and dependability while being continually supported with personal development training and online teacher support groups. The experience you gain from online teaching will also improve your resume and open doors to future teaching opportunities.

Teaching English online means working from home or anywhere else without having to worry about working abroad factors such as accommodation or visa requirements. This benefit of teaching online and essentially being an independent contractor means you can choose when and how much you work without neglecting other commitments. All that’s required from you is a laptop with a strong internet connection, a webcam and headphones. Despite the flexibility of online teaching, there’s still potential to obtain a good income that isn’t reduced by working abroad factors - with salaries ranging from 100 RMB an hour to $2,800 a month. Some companies may also pay an additional fee to complete post-lesson evaluations of students. Although working from your laptop, teaching online still allows you to meet and communicate with a variety of global learners, build strong relationships and learn more about different cultures through them. This in turn will improve a number of teaching and personal skills from self-dependence to cross-cultural awareness.

Online teaching jobs may require you to possess a university degree which can vary from a bachelor’s, a degree from a recognised university or in the field of education. Some positions may only prefer you to hold a degree or to have completed at least 1 year of study. However, for online elementary and secondary teaching positions, a bachelor’s degree and relevant teaching experience is required at a minimum. Therefore, these positions may also require you to hold a number of years teaching/online teaching experience as well as a TEFL/ESL/CELTA Certificate. However, even if you were to teach English online without a degree, you will still need to possess a number of virtual and real-life skills, such as good communication and listening, an engaging classroom presence, and a value/life-long passion for real-world learning.
