Yes, that’s right

Are you looking at teaching online classes jobs are available now for you to apply for! An amazing company Simple International is currently seeking professional online teachers to join their amazing team teaching English online to  Chinese kids aged 4-12 years.

Who are they?

Simple is linking the world through education by providing an international learning experience that allows you to teach Chinese children the English language from your home. Their mission is to inspire and empower every child for the future.

In 2014, Jason Qiao was confronted with an interesting dilemma. One of his friends had expressed an interest in traveling to China but explained that she could not afford the expensive airfare. Driven to find a solution, Jason began researching ways to fund her travel. He discovered that native English speakers willing to instruct Chinese students were in high demand, particularly from Chinese parents and schools. This was welcoming news to Jason’s friend as she was able to travel to China on the Chinese school’s dime and all she had to do was share her passion for the English language with students abroad!

Shortly thereafter, Jason and several of his friends started an organization called Simple International with the goal of helping native English speakers travel to China at no-cost by providing them with a teaching internship. Simple International is currently partnered with sixty Chinese schools and typically receives over two hundred applications per admission cycle.  Now they have online classes for teachers from around the world. Have a look at their video below.

What do I need to teach online?

Virtual Classroom

What do I need to teach online?  Most people do not know what’s needed to begin their online teaching career. After being a PA for over 16 years I was retrenched. I then started working for a factory which manufactured tape products, running the wages, debtors and creditors, stock control, product wastage, site management and so forth, 6 months down the line the company was forced to shut down for reasons I cannot disclose and 80 employees lost their jobs. We all know jobs are difficult to come by especially jobs which pay well. So whilst job hunting one of my friends told me about teaching online. I decided to look into it and find out “What do I need to teach online from home”? and get qualified as quickly as possible. What I really liked about this idea is that it would give me the opportunity to work from home and be with my kids.

Whatever it may be, teaching English online is making this possible for thousands of people around the world – and it’s here to stay! But before you embrace a pants-less work environment, make sure you have the basic qualifications to teach English online covered!

I fully believe that good money can be made online whatever your niche and teaching online from home has been my first steps into achieving these goals. I have been a teacher working from home since June 2016 with iTutor Group and a few other companies.

I am a Senior Consultant (SC) with over 1000 hours of teaching. I teach students from the age of 5 up to adult, some being pensioners 65+ years old, LVP sessions (level placement level 1-12) as well as recruiting and interviewing new potential teachers.

A Senior consultant (SC) is someone who has:

  1. Successfully taught more than 1,000 session hours to-date with a commendable performance
  2. Those maintaining a 9.5 average rating (Please note the average rating mentioned here includes ALL ratings a consultant has received) in the most recent 200 session hours taught
  3. With less than a 3% low ratings ratio in the most recent 200 session hours taught
  4. In possession of a TESOL certificate or its equivalent

Teaching online gives teachers the opportunity to work from almost anywhere in the world. My main reason why I work online is that it gives me flexibility in my schedule and to work from home.

So today I am going to give you all the insight with what is needed to teach English and other subjects online anywhere.

What do I need to be able to teach online?

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  • Windows 7/8 (latest service packs) Intel Core 2 Duo / Pentium G series or above CPU AMD Athlon 64×2 4400+ or above CPU.
  • 2 GB RAM. Broadband Internet connection by Ethernet cable. 1280×1024 minimum resolution.
  • HD capable Webcam.
  • As mobile apps evolve and are becoming popular there are a number of online schools which work via an app-based platform in which your cell phone or an iPad may be used. Make sure that you check whether the school is app or PC based you don’t want to apply and later find out that your mobile or tablet is not efficient.
  • Analog or USB Headset (Microsoft lifeChat LX-3000 preferred) It is advised that you have a swivel mic. Do yourself a favor and invest in a good quality headset the cheap ones just don’t do the job and they pick up a lot of static noise which is heard in class by the students. My husband bought me a great ripper gaming headset and it was well worth the money spent. These are also great headsets to use with a 4/5 rating:

MINIMUM BROWSER REQUIREMENTS

  • Chrome Version 40 or above
  • FireFox Version 30 or above
  • Safari Version 9 or above
  • IEVersion 10 or above

PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS

TESOL/TEFL Certification (or its equivalent) required

Enthusiastic and professional

Great communication and presentation skills

Ability to motivate students

Computer literate

Bachelor’s degree or higher in any field

Minimum of 1 year teaching experience

 

TEFOL/TESOL Certification

Being a native or fluent English speaker is a key part of teaching English online, but that alone does not qualify just anyone to take charge of a student’s future with the English language. Online language schools typically require their English teachers to hold a legitimate (accredited) TEFOL Certification so that they know what training and skills a prospective English teacher possess. There are many online courses available for you to obtain your TEFOL certification in Global Language Training. Subject to availability you can get a major discount on Hyperli make sure to read the fine print as some require you to complete the course within 3-6 months should you need a time extension this is available at an extra cost if needed.

 

Bachelor Degree

While this is not always a mandatory requirement, you will find that the majority of the reputable teach English online employers require that all their teachers hold a BA. Even if your degree is unrelated to education your degree can be in any field or subject – Marketing, Arts, Computer Science, Civil Law etc.

Internet Speed

You will need a fast Internet connection to teach English online. Most online employers require a wired connection (instead of WiFi) as this is more stable. The majority of companies have a required upload and download speed. Make sure to check their speed requirements before applying. Your upload speed is their main concern, you don’t want to lose connection during a session, should you not reconnect to the session within a certain about of time this will result in you being switched and not paid for the session and a possible penalty. Make sure that you have a good enough upload speed when choosing your internet service provider. I would advise that your upload be a minimum of 4 mpbs. You can check your internet speed here.

Teaching Benefits

* Flexible Schedule Set your own schedule and hours, so you can spend your free time on things that matter.

* Work From Home Meet great people from different cultures and career backgrounds, get inspired in adult classes; Have fun and make friends with talented children and teenagers in Jr classes.

* Rates This depends on what the company is offering. Your payment will include a base rate and a performance bonus. The performance bonus will be based on student ratings, which can reflect your teaching skills directly on your payment.

Students

  • Junior (Ages 5~18)
  • Preschool or kindergarten students
  • Elementary students
  • Teenagers
  • Adult (Ages 18+)
  • University students
  • Working professionals or managers
  • Parents or retired workers

Teaching Materials

Most companies provide the teaching material which you can view within an hour of the class starting and it will be your responsibility to go through the material and prepare your props and so forth for the lesson. If you are a freelance teacher there are many resources online where you can download, print or purchase lesson plans. You can find ESL teaching material here.

For props, you could use items around the house, your kid’s toys or even make your own if you’re a crafty type of person. Search on Google and you will find unlimited resources you can download, print and use.

A great tool I highly recommend is Manycam. All you need is a green screen or a plain piece of material behind you. Manycam is FREE to download and there are 1000s of props, you can search for and download as much as you like, you can even create your own if you cannot find what you are looking for. You can change your background by making use of the Chroma key although the Chroma key setting is only available on the paid version. I use the FREE version and it works just fine for me. It allows you to have fun and be creative in your sessions, both my JR and Adult students love it when I use Manycam it allows them to feel more relaxed, helps shy students engage and participate more as well as bringing humor to the class. While using Manycam you are also having fun in the session which brings out your enthusiasm, keeps your students happy and also helps improve your ratings thus increasing your bonuses which means better pay. It’s a win-win everyone is happy.

Prop’s would be the following:
