ESL online teaching requirements


It’s important for all ESL online teachers to figure out how much their time is worth.  You have to ask yourself a few important questions when thinking about accepting a job offer…

One of the questions I feel most people are prepared to answer is…  How much do I make per hour?  What about the ‘other’ job duties no one seems to talk about?  How many meetings per week/ month/ year are you required to attend?  More times than not online teachers don’t get paid for attending meetings.  Are the meetings just a few moments?  Or, do they run well over 30 minutes each time?  Does your job stability depend on you attending every single meeting?  It’s a legit question when your tired and feel like flopping face down on the couch or sipping on and ice cold beer after a long hard day of teaching.

I leave you with this question…  What is your time is worth and how much time are you willing to give for what amount of pay?

  1. Being an ESL teacher is quite tough… Teaching a language and making the student speak in the language later on is quite a challenge! Time is surely a big factor and every minute you spend with the student is worth it!
