We’ve already talked about how teaching English online is big business these days.
That’s why, to help you figure out whether it’s the right career for you, we wanted to get some insight from the perspective of a current online ESL teacher.
A while back, Vanessa heard about an online English teaching platform called VIPKID, that allows English speakers to teach English to young learners in China through the magic of video technology.
At the time, she was looking for a flexible way to earn extra money after returning home from traveling and teaching English in South Korea. An online English teaching job sounded like the perfect opportunity for her and so, on a whim, Vanessa decided to give it a go.
Flash forward to almost a full year later. Vanessa’s still teaching English online on a part-time basis, while studying online for her master’s degree in social work.
She’s also here to talk you through her experience so far. So without further ado, let’s hear it from Vanessa!
