Teaching English online to adults is an excellent opportunity if you would like to interact with students from around the world while being home-based. It’s a fulfilling role in which you can choose your working hours, teach one-to-one and group classes and help students enhance their conversational English skills.
You don’t need prior teaching experience to be a great online English teacher for adults. Plenty of enthusiasm and a desire to share your knowledge is a great starting point.
"Now that I am at the end of my first month teaching with EF, I can safely say that I have learnt a lot about personal time management, communication and cultural differences.
Whilst I do think the role has married up with my expectations, I am very surprised by how rewarding teaching can be. Being online, I did not expect to be able to form interpersonal relations with students so easily. It really is amazing how a shared interest for the English language can cross geographical and physical barriers.
Overall, teaching English online definitely isn’t your average job – I mean how many people can say that they have spoken with people from all 6 continents before their 11am coffee break?!"
