                          English Teaching Online.

Teaching English online is a profession that’s growing in popularity due to its ease of use and benefits. As with every profession there are pros and cons, however, the pros far outweigh the cons. Teaching from the comfort of your own home allows for a world of freedom. It truly lets you dictate the direction of your teaching. You can decide what you teach, who to teach it to, how much to charge, when you  teach, etc. 

There’s a high degree of freedom associated with teaching English online! However, you must not forget that a student is paying you to learn. Therefore, you must act in a professional manner. You should be providing a clear and concise lesson with takeaways that will prove to be valuable for the student. It is unethical for the teacher to have their girlfriend running around in the background!  A distraction the student can do without!  It’s important you present yourself in a presentable and professional manner. It’s also important that you are clear with what services you will be providing for the student. 

Some English learners simply want a native speaker with whom they can have a fluent sounding conversation with.  A structure to the lessons help's!  Visual materials to provide the student with a physical takeaway from the lesson. An example could be something such as a worksheet that you created and print from a PDF file.  You both work through it during the lesson.



Planning on creating your own website? Or are you planning on applying via a school to teach English online? If you are creating your own website? How do you intend to gain the attention of new students? How much are you willing to spend marketing yourself?  How much will you charge to teach classes? All of these questions - food for thought!  Simple considerations, when journeying down the path of an internet English teacher.


First and foremost, I think it's wise to reflect on what you want to achieve from teaching English online! How much effort you’re willing to put in, to achieve these goals?  Plan on teaching full time, or something that you want to do on the side to earn some extra cash? Do you want to teach conversational English.  Do you intend to teach a student how to write a university level essay? Do you want to do business English? Target your market! 


Are you planning on teaching one on one, or teach groups? Once again, some questions that need consideration before entering the online teaching English space. Do you intend to put in full effort and the goal's to maximize money? In this case it's best to start your own website and provide a full “course outline”. Students will know what they shall gain from their time with you. You’ll also have to decide how to market your online company/ website?

 Perhaps a strong social media presence such as Facebook would be the most efficient route. In this case you also should expect to provide a full outline for the students to review before they sign up. I think that a list of targets with corresponding methods of achieving these targets would suit students. You also have to prepare to put in the time to create the lesson plan and work sheets you teach.  Modify lessons according to the student’s needs.  However, every student has different unique interests/ needs. 


 As previously mentioned, promoting ones business via social media is an effective way to spread your services to friends, family and beyond. However, depending on your intended clientele, utilize other Internet marketing strategies. PayPerClick campaigns, or SEO (search engine optimization). Depending on your willingness to devote time or money, you can find the optimal marketing strategy that will suit your business. For example, an individual who's willing to spend more time following the steps to create an effective SEO strategy.  Someone who's lacking time but has capital may prefer to spend money to create Facebook ads, or bring their website to the top page of the Google search. All effective tactics, but it's highly dependent on the individual and their own situation. 

Keep active within the ESL online community.  Participate in open forums. Creating a strong presence for yourself in chat rooms, and a link to your website truly helps gain the attention of possible students. 


We are truly now living in the digital online age!  Almost everything accessed at our fingertips. The advanced algorithms that the Internet provides can be utilized to help determine where your time goes. For instance, Facebook now knows more about you from 100 “likes” you have clicked, than a close friend does. A rather daunting thought, but also incredible. It's just an extreme example of the power of technology in the modern world.  This identifies the power that the Internet has!


An online English teacher could utilize an inflow of information such as this, in order to create an effective teaching strategy and methodology. For instance, on a simple scale they could launch a Facebook poll to ask their friends what they would like to learn. This is a starting point, however it may be bias, as its information from your friends, not students. To take it one step further, you could research the top sites that come up when you search your intended strategy and demographic online! (I.e. teaching English online to 20 year old business employees). (Teaching English online to university students). Plan according to these results. Find out if these companies are quite successful! Building a model after their strategy may be something to consider. 


Finally, technologies such as front facing cameras on your computer, and peer to peer apps such as Skype and what’s App prove valuable. Having a face to face conversation, even via a computer is more powerful than a simple call.  Utilize podcasts, videos and online games.  Bigger chat groups where you discuss topics. Files easily go back and forth. Even working living together on the same document via Google drive. Technology is moving so fast, it's furthering our ability to become teachers on line.
