I would not work for TutorABC myself; I work for a great distance online education that is recognized worldwide; an institute that offers ESL classes, from which you can actually make a normal income.

Hi, there.

I've been working for them for about a year now and the basic rate is $9 for 45 minute sessions + 5 minutes of feedback reports.

There is a bonus on the ratings that client give you which brings it to an average of $11 for a 50-55 time spend.

Last month, I worked a schedule of 42 hours/week and got around 1200Euro. Damn dollar conversion. Dollar is rising slightly. No tax or other cuts to the overall wage. You do have to pay PayPal for transferring money to your bank account 3.9%.

Anything else, please do get in touch.

Some weeks ago I applied for an online teaching job, sending a covering letter and full particulars in a CV, as requested. Eventually I received an email from a company that does surveys, asking pages of questions. I was careful in my response, and would not have filled out any details such as banking etc, but was rather concerned at getting this questionnaire. I have heard nothing since.

Usually when you apply for a job you know the name of the company (so you can look it up), and get a Job Description or something. All I know is, this company is purportedly based in Dublin, and it advertised through this site, so I thought it was bona fide.

Anyone else applied, or can give me further information? It's all beginning to feel a bit suspect!!

Linterbug

The name of the Company is Talkhour and it is based in Dublin.

I spoke to the author (Barry Halford) of the advertisement today and he told me that it was a new project for him and therefore, will take time to set up, hence the delay in responding to applicants.

The questionnaire (click on link below) he sent out to each applicant was to gather information from the candidates prior to the setting up of the business: http://www.esurveyspro.com/Survey.aspx?id=d435e38a-27cd-4a23-85fb-fc4fae383981

It doesn't look as though he will be ready to start anytime soon but expects his website, under construction, to be ready sometime within the next month.

hello,
The Basics of Teaching Online
Teaching online can be very different from teaching in a traditional classroom. An instructor who accepts employment teaching online must be prepared to help students learn without face-to-face interaction and live discussion. Teaching online certainly isn’t for everyone. However, many instructors enjoy the freedom of virtual instruction and the opportunity to interact with students from around the nation.

Is teaching online right for you? Explore the pros and cons of e-instruction, the requirements necessary for teaching online, and the ways you can find an online teaching job.
How to Qualify for Positions Teaching Online
In order to qualify for a position teaching online, applicants must generally meet the same requirements as traditional teachers. At the high school level, online teachers must have a bachelor’s degree and a teaching license. At the community college level, a master’s degree is the minimum requirement for teaching online. At the university level, a doctorate is generally required.

In some cases, colleges accept adjunct online professors without requiring them to meet the same standards as traditional, tenure-track teachers. Working professionals may also be able to get a position teaching online in relation to their chosen field.

At every level of teaching online, schools seek candidates who are familiar with the internet and content management systems such as Blackboard. Prior experience with teaching online and instructional design is highly desirable.
Pros of Teaching Online
There are many advantages to teaching online. Virtual instructors are often able to work from anywhere they choose. You could get a job teaching online for a prestigious school in another state and not have to worry about relocating. Since many e-courses are taught asynchronously, instructors are often able to set their own hours while teaching online. Additionally, instructors who make a living teaching online are able to interact with pupils from around the nation.
Cons of Teaching Online
Teaching online also comes with some notable drawbacks. Sometimes a pre-made curriculum is forced upon instructors teaching online, denying them the ability to use materials that have proved successful in their past courses. Teaching online can be isolating, and many instructors prefer interacting face-to-face with their pupils and peers. Some schools do not value online adjunct teachers, which can result in less pay and less respect in the academic community.
Find Jobs Teaching Online
Some colleges fill online teaching positions by selecting from the current faculty pool. Others post job descriptions specifically for instructors interested in teaching online. Below are some of the best places to find jobs teaching online. When looking for positions on websites without a distance learning focus, simply type “online instructor,” “online teacher,” “online adjunct,” or “distance learning,” into the search box.

Thanks UJ. Your investigations have been most welcome. My reaction to the results of your investigation however is to suggest that what this man is doing is actually classed as misrepresentation. He's pretending to be offering jobs, when what he's really doing is a marketing survey in order to decide whether or not it's worth setting up his business - wasting all our time in the process, as well as storing private information about individuals who mistakenly think they have submitted a genuine job application. I suggest this is fraudulent, and shouldn't be allowed on the website, especially as he didn't even give the name of his business before asking for all our information.

Anyway, I'm pleased you have been able to steer me in the right direction - away!

Kind regards

Teaching online is definitely becoming more common. There are many different language schools out there which are doing quite well and look after their tutors. I teach online and really enjoy it, as do my students.

Dear esl_teacher,
Thanks so much for your response. How did you get started?
Do you work for a company or on your own? I've been thinking about creating my own school. I know several people who would like to teach online. I love to travel and I would be able to teach anywhere.
Thanks again.


Did this person eve get back with a response? did I miss it? would like to know the answer as well.

A friend told me that as an incentive to get people teaching the Uk government will cancel your student debt if you go into teaching and teach for about two years. However, I can't find anything online which supports this. Does anyone know if it's true?

Actually, I find this question to be rather demeaning and I think it is indicative of the wrong attitude often encountered in EFL today.

Would you even dare to ask is dentistry a hobby or a profession? Is classroom teaching a hobby or a profession? It's quite insulting!

Those who consider this career a hobby are making a bad name for those of us who value what we do as a career, a profession. These are the people who 'feed' the unscrupulous 'schools' who give our profession a bad name.

I have studied hard for the certifications and requirements necessary to be a competent teacher and I continue my education whenever I can by attending courses and classes, often outside my home country, incurring considerable expense.

To those who consider EFL a hobby, they need to start collecting stamps.
