Is it possible to teach English remotely?

Unread post by Tombo86 » 01 Jan 2019, 16:59

Hi everyone. I am going to be travelling a lot soon and will have no fixed abode. I have been researching jobs and a few friends have said they know of people who teach English remotely from "home". Is this something that can be done?

I realise it's a pretty broad question so I'll give you a bit of information...

I am currently 32 and the only qualifications I have is a few GCSE's. I have been in business most of my life but I can't take that with me unfortunately! What I need from a job is to have a regular/reliable income that I can earn online while on the move. It doesn't have to be a great income as my overheads will be pretty minimal. Is there any such jobs out there? Is it realistic for me to be able to get those jobs with the right TEFL qualification (with no degree etc)? I enjoy teaching (those that want to be taught) so this seemed like a good potential career to research first.

Any information and realistic expectations would be appreciated.

All the best,

Tom

Ofc it is! I'm not talking about a huge experience of teaching underhand (it actually reduces the possibility of teaching remotely), but from my experience I can say that tutoring online is a good help when you need both experience and some money (it depends, again, on your possibilities and expectations). I've been working here for 5 years already and this is the most convenient paltform for me.
