1- Entrepreneurship in Teaching English

If you want to settle abroad, the barriers of opening a language school are very low because rent is relatively cheap. Language schools are in high demand and you can do most of the teaching yourself in the beginning. In fact, a large number of language schools abroad are run by expats who opened the school by themselves or with their spouse.

2- Administrative Career Opportunities in TESOL

TESOL is a $3 billion global industry that requires skilled staff in many departments to support the industry. Plenty of opportunities exist in the Human Resources, Marketing, and Legal fields. As you can see, there is more to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages than being a teacher. TESOL will open the door to a meaningful and exiting international career!

3-Scholar, Author, Speaker, and Teacher Trainer

A Masters Degree in TESOL is not a requirement for teaching or managerial jobs, but gives teachers a much deeper understanding of the methodology of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages through research and literature reviews.

4-Management Positions in TESOL

The salary for Director of Studies (DoS) positions in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom starts at $80,000/year plus benefits. Some language schools are so large that they have two or three DoS.

What Do I Need to Get Started?

To teach online, you will need:
• All classes are conducted one on one in a virtual online classroom. To teach virtually, you will need your own computer. We recommend a recent laptop or desktop to avoid any lag or performance issues
• A stable, fast Internet connection – to maintain a quality link and avoid getting disconnected. 20 Mbps or higher is recommended
• A headset. We recommend getting one with a noise-canceling feature for clear audio. These are affordable and widely available
• HD webcam – these are a standard feature of most laptops (or an easy addition to your desktop computer)
