In general, you can’t expect to get much help or training from your schools.
You’ll need your own website, marketing channel and more.When I was running an English school in Taiwan, I had an extensive training system that involved trainees watch dozens of classes, take notes and slowly ease into teaching 5 minute segments, 15 minute segments, full classes and then one week substitutions before being given a class of their own to take over for a full semester.I gave them feedback and made sure they mastered each skill they needed along the way.I would be remiss if I didn’t point out a few things that ideal about teaching a foreign language over video chat.It’s a huge, global opportunity but there are some areas where it falls short compared to actually being in a classroom environment.About half the platforms I’ve seen want teachers with some experience.
Requirements for specific degrees are rare outside of the online classrooms affiliated with brick and mortar institutions, and requirements for teaching certificates are pretty rare as well.
A school might suddenly pivot from using teachers for one on one classes to hosting their own pre-recorded classes. There are other teachers such as Gabby Wallace who have built huge personal brands and teach large numbers of students directly.
You really have to be willing to tolerate a bit more uncertainty if you’re working online. If you’re in any country where English is the native language, you probably don’t want to teach for $2 per hour. Next in line are people with niche brands who teach groups on their own sites.
Children are generally augmenting traditional schooling with some educational apps and other products, but many, many adults are moving to online classes. A couple of years ago, the Japanese “eikaiwa” or English conversation class market went through yet another shock as has become common over the past few decades.
The market as a whole is growing, but not at anything like the rate that it was during the 80s.
But remember, if you can’t differentiate yourself, the wage floor is very low in an online market.
