*The Online Teacher PATH course*
This add on program will help you bridge the gap between what you learnt in your TEFL/TESOL course to getting a job, getting students, and keeping your students. Your TEFL/TESOL course is the certification you need to teach English online, and it provides you with the foundations of being a great English language teacher.
The PATH program helps you on the rest of the journey, so you can find the teaching niche and platform which suits you, acquire your dream job and become a successful ESL teacher.
Who is this program for?
Anyone who wants to teach English as a Second/Foreign Language online!
This PATH is designed for teachers who want to become a contract teacher, or a freelance tutor on one of the many language learning platforms out there, including VIPKid, Magic Ears, DaDa, Cambly, Preply, TutorMe, iTalki, Verbling etc.
What does PATH stand for?
We believe there are four logical steps that need to be followed so that as an Online Teacher you can get a job that suits your requirements, you can book lots of slots and that you are confident in being an online ESL teacher. They are:
Before you even start applying for jobs there are things you need to consider, questions you need to ask yourself and you must choose the right niche for you. This module will help you to prepare to apply for the job you want.
Even though you are no doubt a great candidate to teach English, with a passion for helping others and very excited to get started, you have to prove yourself to the language learning platforms or schools you will be applying to. This module will help you create a professional and targeted application package that makes you stand out from the crowd. And we give you the hard truth about your current resume and why it will make you miss out on jobs.
While your TEFL/TESOL course taught you about lesson plans and how to write them, and maybe even gave you some practical advice or experience about teaching English online, this module steps it up a notch. In these lessons you will learn how to turn your workspace into an online classroom, where to find lesson plans to make planning easier for you and common mistakes all teachers make and how you can avoid them.
To be a consistently great teacher and keep on booking more students and perhaps even raising your hourly rate you will need to build good habits. In this module you will discover over 30 tips that will ensure you are better than your competitors, learn how to create an engaging video introduction and bio for prospective students, and how to use LinkedIn and Facebook to attract more students.
We are confident that at the end of the PATH Program you will be more than comfortable applying for jobs and teaching in the niche of your choice.
