Why Teach and Go?
Hi, I’m David. As a former ESL teacher in Asia and current part time online teacher I know it can be difficult finding accurate information about ESL, teaching online and teaching abroad.
So I started Teach and GO with a team of teachers to be your #1 resource for teaching English online with additional guides for those interested in living and working abroad.
My goal with this website is to make it user friendly, accurate and up-to-date. Most ESL sites today are difficult to use, provide dated information or provide content that you’re simply not looking for. Teach and GO will have everything you need to begin a profitable side business as an online English teacher covering specific training requirements, the step-by-step hiring process and potential employers to help you get hired.
Teach English Online?
By teaching online you have two options. You can go the freelance route (checkout our italki guide) which is stressful, time consuming but very profitable if you’re able to get clients. The other way is to work with an online teaching company as an independent contractor.
The independent contractor route is best for most prospective teachers as the online company takes care of all the business aspects of teaching. Lesson planning, managing class time an payment.
This is why I like this brand new class of online teaching websites: VIPKID, Qkids and the like. They simply allow you to open hours, parents book you for the week (or month) before and you’re provided with the material to teach.
They also pay between $21-25 an hour (depending on bonuses). I currently do 12 hours a week part time with VIPKID. On top of that, it’s also a lot of fun! You’ll feel like you’re making a difference and you’ll develop great relationships with children in China. A win-win for all involved.
So if you are looking for a side income with flexibility that you can do anywhere from your laptop, consider online teaching. The students are great, the pay is good and it’s fast and easy. You just teach and go.
