Around the globe, more and more people of all walks of life are studying English.

Add to this the explosive spread of the internet and the rise of “distance learning.”

The result? A massive increase in the number of people studying English online.

And they need teachers. People like you. Native or near-native speakers who can guide them along.

And they will gladly pay for your help, because you have something they desperately want.

Maybe you’ve never thought about a knowledge of English as a marketable skill. But in today’s world, it definitely is.

Maybe you’ve never thought of yourself as an English teacher. But very soon, you could be one.

Not so long ago, I couldn’t have imagined myself as an English teacher. But today, I think it’s one of the best jobs out there.

As my friend Damon says,

I’ve worked for a living, and I’ve taught English. Teaching English is better.

Now, teaching English online is a job – but it’s a pretty darn good one. Why? Here are just a few reasons:

  • Decent pay: No, you won’t get rich, but you can make US$15 per hour,  US$20 per hour, or even more.
  • Convenience: Work from home. No traffic, no going out in bad weather. Just walk over to your computer.
  • Flexible hours: You can work a couple hours a day, or full-time. It’s your choice.
  • Enjoyable: If I’m honest, teaching English online just isn’t that tough. In almost every class, my student and I share many laughs.
  • Small investment: Traditional brick-and-mortar businesses are complicated and expensive to start up. And it may take years of study and cost thousands of dollars to begin a career. But the investment to teach English online is minimal.
  • Earn quickly: In just a few weeks, you could be teaching your first students. You could be on your way…

Teaching English online is great for many types of people, including:

  • Retirees: Perhaps you’d like to use your free time productively, but working a menial job for minimum wage doesn’t appeal to you. Teaching English online could be a great alternative.
  • Stay-at-home moms: Would you like to keep working, but find it almost impossible with your crazy schedule? You can teach English one hour at a time – even classes as short as 25 minutes.
  • New university grads: Perhaps you haven’t found that amazing job yet. Or you still aren’t sure what you want to do for the next 40 years of your life. Teaching English online might be great for now.
  • Unemployed/underemployed: Good jobs don’t grow on trees. And being broke and sitting around idle can be depressing. Teaching English online could be an alternative for now. (And you might find that you want to keep doing it!)
  • Current EFL teachers: Perhaps you already teach English abroad, in a face-to-face setting. There are several advantages to teaching English online. I made the switch, and find teaching online to be much better for me!
  • Gypsies: If you’d love to travel the world, but did not have the foresight to be born wealthy, then teaching English online could be your solution. Earn money to fund sustained travel. Move on – without loss of income or having to start over!

I’ve been teaching English as a foreign language since 2008, and I’ve taught online since 2012. I know how to teach, and I’d like to show you that it’s  not really that hard – and can in fact be lots of fun, and very rewarding.

There is nothing like finishing a class and hearing the words, “Thank you, Teacher.” Those words still touch me.
