How to Get Started Teaching English Online

But exactly how does someone start their online career? First, it’s important to decide which type of position best matches your goals and experience.

What is the Right Certification for Teaching English Online?

The minimum TESOL / TEFL certification requirement to teach English online is a 120-hour TESOL Certificate; however, aiming for the minimum requirements is not the best option in terms of job opportunities and job satisfaction.

Most online English teaching jobs consist of teaching English to young kids in the range of 4-12 years old.  The 120-hour TESOL course with the Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) specialization is highly recommended for online English teachers because you will get 20 extra hours of training with a special focus on the approaches that you should use when teaching English to children and teenagers.

Teaching English online presents different challenges and considerations versus teaching in a classroom setting. Our 20-hour Teaching English Online specialization course will prepare you for working for an online language school and also teach you the basics to design your online program and help you become your own boss
