  • Q: Who can teach English online?

    Whether you’re a student, graduate or working full-time in a career that’s not for you – a teaching English online job could be the perfect solution! All you need is to be fluent in English, an accredited (or even better, regulated) TEFL certificate, a laptop or PC and a strong internet connection. Simple, you’re ready to teach English online!

  • Q: How can I teach English online?

    First up, you need to make sure you’re TEFL qualified! Once you’ve got your TEFL qualification under your belt, you’ve got two options.

    Firstly, you can opt to set up your own TEFL business. The best part about taking this route is that you get to keep all of the money you make when you teach English online! There is a lot to learn when setting up your own business, such as how to manage finances, what rates you should be setting, and most importantly, how to find students to teach! It may seem pretty daunting, but don’t worry! Our Level 5 500-Hour Advanced TEFL Diploma covers a wide range of TEFL training, including two specialist modules: How to set up a TEFL Business and How to market yourself as a TEFL freelancer.

    The other way you can teach English online is by applying to work for an online school. There are a lot of different employers out there, a few of the most popular include: VIPKid Global, EF English First, Oxinity, iTalki, Magic Ears, Cambly and Preply. We have pulled together a really handy guide comparing the different employers for teaching English online, comparing their salary rates, whether they provide lesson plans, what age students you can expect to teach plus whether there are any minimum hours you would be required to work.

  • Q: Do I need a degree to teach English online?

    Good news! You don’t need a degree to teach English online. However, some employers may ask for one at their own discretion. Rest assured though, there are plenty of teaching English online jobs for non-degree holders, such as LatinHire, Classgap, Preply and iTalki. You can check out a full list of them here, including their salary rates, required working hours and nationalities accepted!

  • Q: Are there any age limits to being an Online English Teacher?

    Aside from a lower limit of 18, people of any age can teach English online. i-to-i graduates of all ages are teaching English online from all corners of the globe – you can even do it alongside another job to earn some extra cash!

  • Q: What do I need in order to teach English online?

    To teach English online, you’ll need the following:

    1. A TEFL qualification: This needs to be from a reputable provider (like i-to-i!) who are accredited or regulated by an official body, such as Ofqual – and it needs to be for at least 120 hours but the more hours you complete, the better your chances of finding work are. If you are looking for access to the highest-paying jobs, then we would recommend choosing our 420 hour course, which includes a specialist module all about teaching English online. You can browse our range of TEFL Courses here.

    2. A laptop or PC: To teach English online, you’ll need a good device to connect with students – this is normally any laptop or PC, however, it has been known that you can use some tablets and even smartphones. However, some employers may only allow laptops or PCs.

    3. A webcam: So that you can video call students, you’ll definitely need a webcam. These days, most computers come with built-in webcams but if yours doesn’t, you can buy ones that simply plug into your USB port. The higher the resolution of your webcam, the better your student can see you.

    4. A headset/microphone: If you’ve decided to teach English online, your students will definitely need to be able to hear you! So, a headset is the obvious choice – although, it’s not a necessity. It’s very likely that your computer will already have a microphone that’s built-in, so you can use this as long as you’re in a very quiet environment.

    5. A quiet, well-lit space: To deliver your lessons, it’s important to find a place to teach English online that’s free of any distractions and light enough that your students can see you clearly. If you’re at home, try to sit near a window if possible. Or you can try local libraries or quiet corners of cafes too.

  • Q: How do I find a job teaching English online?

    There are currently over 4000+ job for teaching English online and abroad advertised on our TEFL jobs board, LoveTEFL Jobs (i-to-i’s sister company). Simply register for free and then you can easily view and apply for positions you’re interested in. Fancy being your own boss? You could choose to go freelance and find your own students online. The opportunities are endless!

  • Q: How much can I earn when I teach English online?

    When you teach English online, the amount you earn can vary depending on a few different factors. These are:

    • Whether you choose to freelance or work for a language school
    • Your experience level
    • How many hours you teach per week
    • Whether or not you have a degree

    In general, most online English teaching jobs pay between £8 (US$10/R180) and £20 (US$25/R450) per hour or per lesson (lessons are normally between 45-60 minutes). However, if you freelance, you can set your own rates so these amounts may differ. If you specialise in certain areas of TEF, such as Coaching IELTS or Teaching Business English, you could be earning up to £45/$60 an hour! Ka-ching!

    Once you build up some experience, you should be able to gradually increase your rates – just bear in mind that you’ll be competing against other teachers too.

    If you teach English online, there are a few different topics/types of English you can teach, and the earning criteria is different for each of these. As a general guide, you can expect to earn the following:

    • General or conversational English – £10+ per lesson
    • Business English – Up to £45 per lesson
    • Examination preparation – Up to £45 per lesson
    • Job interview coaching – Around £15 per lesson
    • English lessons for specific nationalities – £10+ per lesson

  • Q: Can I teach English online whilst travelling?

    Yes, absolutely! That’s the beauty of becoming an online TEFL tutor, you can work from wherever and whenever suits you. Teaching English online is a fantastic way of being able to fund your lifestyle as you travel around the world. You will need to make sure you have a reliable internet connection so that none of your online lessons are disrupted.
