Why teach English online?

Experience the financial freedom and personal fulfillment that online English teaching offers. There is an incredible amount of 2 billion second language English learners worldwide and a shortage of qualified English teachers. 
As the world becomes more globalized, the need for a common language increases. English is used by millions of people for business and other purposes, but there is one problem – there are just not enough qualified English teachers.
  ✓ You can travel and still earn a great income
✓ You will meet interesting people from all over the world
✓ There is no need to sit in traffic to get to work
✓ You can cash out on a weekly basis

Why enroll in the OET course?

OET Course Focus

 1. Building a sustainable high income

  • many online English teachers do not reach an income of over $10 per hour
  • this course is focused on preparing teachers to earn between $20 and $40 per hour within their first 3 months of teaching online

2. Managing conversational lessons

  • most teaching methods do not elaborate on how to manage conversational lessons
  • many teachers who have been trained to teach in a lecture format are not equipped to teach one-on-one conversational lessons
  • this course provides teachers with full training on how to manage one-hour long conversational lessons

What will I learn?


How to earn between $20 and $40 per hour (depending on the income structure model which you choose)

You will be prepared to manage conversational English lessons

You will be prepared to adapt to different students based on their age, level of English, country of origin, and language goal
