Mark, Online Tutor
In the first 3 days of this month I’ve already earned over £100. I’m delighted I took the plunge! I’m recently retired, was looking for a worthwhile part time job that I could do from home and preferably online. This ticks all the boxes.
- Do I need special equipment to teach on-line?
You need a computer, a good internet connection and a noise-cancelling headset.
- What is the application process?
The application process is simple and straightforward:
> Initial mock class
> Contract signing
> Second mock class
> Successful launch
- Do I need a TESOL/TEFL certificate to apply to teach English on-line?
Not initially, but this would be required by the end of the probation period. Please ask ESLstarter for special rates on TEFL courses.
- Are the positions open to high school graduates?
Unfortunately, we can only accept applications from bachelor degree holders.

- What type of teaching would be expected from me?
The teaching is conversation based. It would be your role to create a friendly and positive learning environment where all students feel encouraged to participate. The teacher is expected to maximize student talk time and keep their own talk time at a minimum. You would very much be a facilitator, setting up activities and offering feedback to students.
- What will I be teaching in a session?
You will be provided with lesson plans for each class you teach. The lesson plans have been developed to offer students a comprehensive learning experience. Subject materials range from business English to specific topics to every day conversation.
