Coach’s study included conversations and surveys with the tutors. An essential focus of this dialogue was to unpack why tutors weren’t planning to adopt online tutoring and why some of them were tutoring so few of their students online. They also aimed to discover what some of the pain points might be for tutors who had moved almost completely to online.
Charter schools require no tuition, and are run more independently than public schools. Charter schools have more flexibility in regards to their operations because they are held at a higher accountability for performance. Each school has established a "charter" that acts as the school's contract. The charter states the school's mission, vision, and performance goals. The petition also details the school's curricular program as well as the methods of assessment. Charter schools are usually smaller, more selective, and may have additional requirements for their English teachers.
The lesson material is uploaded into the online classroom for you, based on what the student is currently studying and his/her parent’s preference. You are able to preview the material prior to the lesson and then can use your own expertise to respond to the student’s individual learning needs to deliver the lesson. No mandatory teaching props or backdrops needed!

Teach Away has been officially selected by the Government of Hong Kong’s Education Bureau to recruit certified English teachers for public school teaching jobs in Hong Kong. Teaching jobs in Hong Kong offer lucrative benefits such as round-trip family airfare and comfortable accommodation, along with the chance to gain experience teaching in Hong Kong public schools.
Have lots opinions on what works and what doesn't on the web? Then you might just be right for a "career" in remote usability testing. Actually, no one really makes a career at it, but user testers can pick up some extra work reviewing websites or mobile applications that may still be in development. You don't even necessarily have to be very knowledgeable about the Internet because some developers want the beginner's point of view.
I am a retired biology professional With a Ph.D. in biology from the University of Virginia, did a postdoctoral at Yale University and continued research at The University of Chicago. I have taught throughout this period, including general biology, cell biology and medical school.When I retired I wanted to continue teaching the subject I love. So I started tutoring (now for seven years) the subject in my neighborhood and in several schools in the northern D.C. metropolitan area including:   Connelly School of the Holy Child, Georgetown Visitation, Gonzaga, St. John’s College High School, Landon, The Potomac School, Walt Whitma ...

If you are uncomfortable with one-on-one tutoring, or are having trouble engaging in your sessions, consider small-group tutoring. Some people learn better in a multi-person environment where they can exchange ideas with their peers. Small groups offer you more of a “classroom” experience, while still giving you the personal attention that you might not get at school.
A word of caution: Remember that where very little is required, very little is offered. These jobs don’t pay much, and they are not going to provide a reference for your resume. It may take working at several different of these online jobs to pull in the income you want. And as always, know the signs of a work-at-home scam as you sort through the opportunities.
As much as it pains me to write this, my advice is to find a different career. It's not that being a professor is so bad--there are many good things about the job, including a certain amount of flexibility of schedule and the experience of going to work and learning alongside colleagues and students each day--but the job market is just. so. bad. Odds are that you will labor for 6 years to obtain a PhD in English, all the while earning very little money and going into debt, and when you graduate you will be unable to get a tenure-line job--even if you are a gifted teacher, even if you are a talented writer, even if you are a superstar. If you do get a tenure-line job you will find yourself working long hours but earning far less money than do others with advanced degrees, and you will find that the realities of the profession are out of line with what you imagine the profession to be. I once believed that I would have the leisure to think and to write--that's what professors do, right? Not so much. When I was much younger I even imagined that I would spend some time each day sitting under a tree and reading a book. I'm serious! I thought that. My life bears zero resemblance to the fantasy. The ground under the trees is always a little wet, and there's too much of a glare on my laptop to work outside.
How to Get It: Check out K12 (K12.com) and Connections Academy (ConnectionsAcademy.com). Both organizations offer various benefits — including health insurance, retirement savings accounts and paid time off — depending on where you live. As in any job where you work with kids, there will be a background and reference check as well as interviews. You may also need to be licensed to teach in the state where the students reside.

Do not expect your students to be English majors. Understand that they don't all share the love of reading and writing and all things literary. If you understand that; if you meet them where THEY are (not where you expect or want them to be); if you are flexible with your time and your resources; and if the curriculum is not always the stuff the kids NEED to know, you'll be just fine. Also, keep granola bars in your desk drawer for the kids who didn't get breakfast (or for when you forget your lunch on the kitchen counter), let students stand up and move around a lot - literature is really, really boring for some (I know, weird, right?), and even honors students can try your patience daily.
 Robin Higgins was born and raised in Oakland, California and has been tutoring and teaching chemistry for over ten years. She received a full ride to Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, interned in the synthetic organic chemistry department of Gilead Sciences, then went to UCLA as a PhD candidate for organic chemistry. While in grad school, she realized she wanted to teach, so she left with her masters degree. Now she tutors online, and teaches gen chem lecture at Mt. St. Mary’s University in Los Angeles.
As today's learners become more receptive to online interactive learning, e-learning represents a paradigm shift in delivering and acquiring knowledge. Participants will learn how to design, implement, assess and evaluate curriculum content and appropriate teaching methodology for the online classroom. Candidates will explore leading instructional technology tools, software, and web-based applications.
Graduates of colleges or universities accredited by the proper regional accrediting association may apply for admission to graduate study at LSUS. Admission is restricted to include only those students whose academic records indicate they can successfully undertake graduate work in the proposed area. Admission to graduate study at LSUS requires that all previously undertaken graduate work meets LSUS academic standards.
People with communications, journalism, marketing and public relations degrees who are well-grounded in English grammar and expository writing might consider teaching as an alternate career choice. These professionals, perhaps enticed by a standard workweek and two-month summer vacations, need to become certified before entering the education field. After graduating from teaching certification programs, new teachers are mentored by an experienced teacher until they earn full certification.
That can be hard when you’ve been out of work for a while and a plum position seems to fall smack dab into your lap. But think about the job and how you were approached about it in an objective light. If something just feels off, or you feel uncomfortable for any reason (e.g., the job recruiter is pushy or demanding, or you don’t have a clear understanding of the job responsibilities), don’t think twice about walking away from it.
I need a native english speaker to teach my 14 years old daughter and 6 years old daughter, reading and Writing, literature, Phonics etc, we will need at least two lessons per week. Tutor must have a standard american accent. Time must be weekday Beijing time 7pm-9pm (GMT+8) or weekend. Please let me know if you are interested.

To become an online teacher, you need at least a bachelor’s degree in education, or the subject you wish to teach. For example, chemistry teachers should have a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. Many teachers pursue a master's degree or doctorate which makes them eligible for administrative positions. Online teachers who work with public school programs also need a teaching license or certificate, which may entail more coursework and the passing of a certification exam. State requirements vary, so research the qualifications where you live. Private schools and educational organizations may not need a teaching license, but having one may increase your chances in the job market. Some online teachers first gain experience in the classroom or by tutoring students to develop teaching techniques before seeking online teaching positions.
Now selling textbooks for fellow students is another story. You can easily make some extra money from each textbook sold (you set a percentage or set fee per book). As time allows, you can even scout online book prices and buy/sell during the prime textbook season (before the start of each new semester). You don’t have to limit yourself to locally supplied textbooks in this case.
I just wanted to let you know that I have been hired by Maritz (Thank you Annie) and working with them for almost 30 days now (perfect attendance gets you a $.25 raise after 30 days too). The company has us calling customers from different businesses (banks, insurance co. etc..) and asking them to please complete a survey of how their customer service experience was between 1 (poor) and 10 (excellent). They pay you the minimum wage of your state weekly by direct deposit and pay on time. The staff is great and helpful and they make the job easy and enjoyable. Thanks again Annie and bless you for all your great and helpful information that you share with us.

“Robin was extremely concerned with student learning and wanted to make sure that we understood what she was going over. She also made sure to point out things that could possibly trick us so that we could pay particular attention to them. She reiterated what was said in class and worked out examples so that we could apply it to our practice problems and exam questions.” – Rachel F., UCLA
'Module 5: Online Assessment Strategies' discusses the notions of formative and summative assessment in online contexts. We will also explore benefits and considerations that you'll need to keep in mind if you're considering adopting an online assessment strategy in your own teaching, and how using technology can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the assessment process. 'Module 6: Online Resources' discusses the benefits of using open educational resources (OER), and other online resources in your classes. We will also identify issues to be aware of when using resources that you discover, in terms of licensing and Creative Commons. You will be given the chance to explore several examples of online resources via the activities and associated resources for the module. How to evaluate the effectiveness and appropriateness of resources you find online is also explored.

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material, and they provide these as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue. Students, members of the community, and users worldwide will find information to assist with many writing projects. Teachers and trainers may use this material for in-class and out-of-class instruction.
Usability testers are asked to perform tests based on their demographic profile (education, knowledge of the web, age, social media use, etc.). They are then given questions to address and/or tasks to perform, such as registering on a website and then providing feedback online. Reviews usually take about 15-20 minutes and earn typically about $10 each. After completing a review, testers are not paid until the client accepts their feedback. Work can be rejected and unpaid for technical problems, lack of detail, or other issues the client determines. 
Schools in developing countries generally lack resources to afford English teaching staff. This is exactly where volunteers can make a difference! Teach English abroad in schools and provide quality education! The economy of many developing countries relies on the tourism industry which in turn depends on English speaking skills. The latter is imperative for locals to be part of the industry. With better English skills, they can differentiate themselves from others, earn a better living and increase their chances in life .
This Web text and associated exercises is a continuing project. Check back often for updates. Anticipated changes in later editions include more interactive exercises, animated examples of the use of statistical packages, and inclusion of statistical packages other than SPSS/WIN. All references to statistical packages and output will be placed in separate files so they may be updated without changing the text.

All professors have office hours, and online instructors are no exception. Make sure you know how to help students reach you. Hosting a Google Hangout at the same time every week? Scheduling phone calls as needed? Staying after class with students who have questions? Find out if your program has a policy, or if it’s OK for you to develop your own system for student check-ins.

Whilst I'm new on Verbling, don't let this put you off. I've taught more than 8,000 hours to many happy students from different backgrounds some of whom I've had since 2007. Anyhow, my goal is to make your English much better in a quick, fun and easy way whatever your objective! I’ve been the main reason why students from countries such as France, Spain, Saudi Arabia, China, Peru, Ecuador or Switzerland have achieved and surpassed their English goals. If I’m still doing it after all these years I guess it means I’m a great teacher but that is for your to judge with a free trial! I grew up on an island in England and have lived in 7 countries. I have lived in Ecuador since 2011. I have a friendly and relaxed teaching style, yet it is also critical for my students to significantly improve in every class and have fun as much as possible! As I get to know you better I adapt the material more to your interests and your personality! I want you to enjoy and feel good about speaking English. I want you to have more confidence, more fluency, more precision, more vocabulary, improved pronunciation and more fun! I want to eliminate grammar as much as possible and I do this by concentrating and eliminating your common errors. I don't want to give you boring grammar classes. The goal is a light dosis of grammar. Afterall, you can study grammar in your own time. I guide what grammar you should study since you don't need to know everything about English grammar to attain a high level! Over the years I’ve taught around 8,000 hours (online and offline) to groups, to businesses, to the Official School of Languages in Spain, to adult professionals, to adolescents and civil servant English teachers in Spain! … hey I’ve even taken clients hiking for the day so they can spend the whole day speaking English. In addition, I’ve had students stay with me for a week in England so they can change their lives for ever in terms of their English ability. Furthermore, I actually personally visit some clients if I am in their country. These students typically invite me to dinner, let me stay at their house or show their city to me in exchange for free English. They even let me visit with my wife! I guess I must be doing something good for them to do this! I understand my income and my family depends on the quality of the classes I offer so my commitment is to be better than any teacher you’ve had before and always look to improve my service to you.

A SUMMARY OF MY SERVICE: - Free trial: Take a no obligation free trial so you can see for yourself how good I am. This is a chance to check out the method and explain your objectives and requirements e.g. improve fluency, confidence and eliminate common errors. - A unique service: I offer a unique and personalised teaching method to satisfy individual student requirements whether that be an English exam (Cambridge, Trinity, IELTS, TOEFL, EOI...), an interview in English, medical or business English or general English conversation. - Free responses to grammar queries outside of class: If you have grammar doubts or need a quick correction to a phrase for an email, you can send me a message on verbling when you want and I will respond in quick time! - Study little grammar: You don't like studying grammar? No problem! With me, you will study grammar lightly to ensure you enjoy the English classes. On the whole, I look at grammar only when errors are made during conversation.

I will help you overcome those issues in a way you have never experienced before. - I have a Masters in Translation: This is better than a TEFL certificate. This shows a deep linguistic capability and critical thinking ability. - Error correction method: My method is about correcting your common errors.

I encourage you to converse as much as possible and be yourself. - Possibility of a personal visit: I often personally visit students if I am in their country. Then you would get to speak English for free over coffee or a meal for example. - I have a written an English grammar ebook: This book was designed to help Spanish speakers learn more effectively and more quickly.

Mark Davies MA PG (dip), BA (hons) RECOMMENDATIONS: "Tengo 42 años y he estado estudiando ingles toda mi vida, clases particulares, academia de inglés, cursos online, inmersión en UK, etc... Hace dos meses empecé las clases de inglés vía Skype con Mark. Al principio fue duro, en lugar de avanzar tenía la sensación de retroceder pero, sorprendentemente, varias semanas después la mejora empezó a ser impresionante. Los errores escritos y orales empezaron a disminuir, mi fluidez oral y escrita mejoró pero el mayor logro ha sido en la comprensión oral. Nuestras clases son fluidas y mi dificultad de entender a Mark es prácticamente 0. Además, el 99% de mi trabajo es en inglés. Hasta ahora tenía que esforzarme enormemente para poder seguir las conversaciones. Desde hace dos semanas mi nivel de comprensión ha aumentado considerablemente y me siento mucho más cómoda y relajada". "En resumen, estoy encantada con el sistema, en mi caso los resultados han sido visibles a muy corto plazo. Además, me gustaría destacar la comodidad que supone realizar las clases en casa, así como la flexibilidad de horario. Awesome!!!" Montse Sandoval, Barcelona, España "I am grateful for having done an English online course with Mark and I totally recommend him. Today my English is a lot more fluent and I have certainly noted a big difference in my communication when I am abroad. One of the main qualities of my native teacher was the personal focus and Mark definitely knew what we had to concentrate on so I could make big progress in little time" Maite Gonzalez, Madrid, Spain Please note, I don´t teach beginner levels (A1-A2). I do pre-intermediate or above (B1, B2, C1, C2).
Millions of children worldwide are still without an education, which may seem unbelievable considering the world we are living in today. The unfair distribution of resources has caused a massive gap between highly qualified individuals in developed countries and people in developing countries where children are unable to enjoy the fruits of a good education. The latter tend to remain in a vicious cycle they are unable to break out of without any external support.
User testing is another one of those prime easy remote jobs! All you have to do is look at a website or mobile app, complete an activity as requested or just look around, and then give your thoughts on the website or app. Sometimes, your screen will be recorded while you complete the test and speak your thoughts out loud. Other times, you may be asked to write out your brief thoughts. Either way, the only real technical requirements are to have a home computer (that you can install the screen recording software on) and high-speed Internet access or particular type of smartphone.
What It Is: Create virtual displays of art and graphics by assembling images, typographies, and motion graphics for published, printed, or digital media. This may include drafting logos, packaging, labels, and advertisements for brands. Top candidates will have skills in creativity, typography, software, web design, Adobe Photoshop, technology, and more.

This guide provides teachers with strategies for helping students understand the differences between persuasive writing and evidence-based argumentation. Students become familiar with the basic components of an argument and then develop their understanding by analyzing evidence-based arguments about texts. Students then generate evidence-based arguments of texts using a variety of resources. Links to related resources and additional classroom strategies are also provided. Designed for grades 6-12.


'Module 1: Why is Online Teaching Important' is about understanding where you are in the current educational landscape, and determining where you want to be. We will explore why online teaching is relevant to your teaching practice, and you’ll have an opportunity to reflect upon the opportunities and challenges you face in your own context. 'Module 2: Open and Institutionally Supported Technologies' focuses on helping you understand the benefits and restrictions of both broad categories of technologies. We’re all familiar with different social media technologies, and many of us will be aware of larger institutional online learning systems. In this module we will ask you to think about the reasons why you might want to use freely available online tools for your teaching - or your institution's learning management system. Important considerations such as which types of technologies are suitable for a range of different activities will also be explored.
A major benefit your student get from chemistry tutoring is having the chance to learn new material before it is taught in class. The class becomes less stressful when they already had a preview of what’s to come. Thus they are able to turn the classroom into a place of review as opposed to picking up what you can in a crowded distracting environment. Your child will go from being the quiet student with questions and confusion rolling around in their brain, to the quick learning student that can now assist their peers. Imagine the confidence boost that you or your student will receive. Not only will they be impressed with themselves, but also their teacher is sure to notice your abilities. Chemistry is a very convoluted subject, but with the right environment, your student will be able to see the subject and its objectives more clearly.
Earn a bachelor’s degree, such as a Bachelor of Arts degree in English (or a similar degree, such as English Composition or Creative Writing), or major in Education with a specialization in English. In addition to taking courses related to literature and writing, aspiring English teachers also study adolescent psychology and techniques in managing a high school classroom.

English teachers at all levels are expected to have at least a bachelor’s degree in English, journalism, mass communications or a specialized discipline such as creative writing or literature. English teachers often specialize in subjects such as grammar and various literary genres, like British or American literature, public speaking and debate, or writing.


Teach Away has been officially selected by the Government of Hong Kong’s Education Bureau to recruit certified English teachers for public school teaching jobs in Hong Kong. Teaching jobs in Hong Kong offer lucrative benefits such as round-trip family airfare and comfortable accommodation, along with the chance to gain experience teaching in Hong Kong public schools.

While most K-12 teachers hold a bachelor’s degree, about 12% hold a master’s degree or other postgraduate degree or certificate.4 Holding a higher-level degree in English, literature, or a related subject may help prospective English teachers become more competitive in the job market. As the majority of post-secondary teachers of English hold a master’s or doctoral degree, pursuing an advanced degree can also open up further job opportunities.
Good programs understand this and provide their own tech support staff. This resource is also available to professors, who will want immediate help should their PowerPoint presentations crash during class time. Removing this burden from teachers allows them to focus on their lessons, while students can rest easy knowing there’s help for any issues they may encounter.
Prospective English teachers must possess a solid understanding of pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure. They should be able to assess and evaluate student progress effectively. In addition, English teachers should be able to use various instructional strategies to meet the needs of all students. Prospective English teachers should have excellent communication skills so they can engage their class effectively and communicate well with parents, colleagues, and school administrators.
Vikram worked with tutor Sandra for 2.5 years. She gave him the confidence to score straight As in math throughout his high school years. Even though at first Sandra was not teaching Precalculus, she was kind enough to take up the subject just for the sake of teaching Vikram. Such personal care and attention is rare to find these days! Thanks to Sandra for the care she showered on Vikram:-)
To narrow the results by subject area, look under the Navigation box in the right-hand column. Scroll down to find the appropriate subject category under Latest Adjunct Job Postings. Also in the right-hand column is a link to the searchable version of the job board. This is particularly useful because not all of the jobs posted on this site are online positions, so you can use "online teaching" and related keywords to narrow down your results.
Thus, when a student spends an hour with a Growing Stars online tutor, the tutor would have invested more than one hour for that student. Our teacher knows the students’ strengths and weaknesses and, unlike instant tutors who think of that day’s homework only, works for the long-term success of the student. Instant tutors may change frequently making it difficult for them to analyze the areas that needs focus for a steady academic improvement. A Growing Stars tutor builds a good rapport with the student, helping instill in the student a desire to learn.
What It Is: Many companies pay online testers to make sure websites are intuitive and easy to navigate. "You basically follow the instructions you're given to check out the website," says Anna Thurman, founder of RealWaysToEarnMoneyOnline.com, a site that has reviewed more than 500 online work opportunities. "It usually only takes about 15 minutes per test." Thurman recommends registering with 10 to 12 different companies since the opportunities to test these sites are doled out first come, first served. "There are people who make $100 to $200 a month by staying on top of those tests," Thurman says.

This course will guide you through your journey of understanding how online technologies can enhance your course design. You will have the opportunity to develop your understanding of effective online teaching practices and their relationship to the use of different technologies. You will also be encouraged to progressively design and reflect upon your own online learning activity, assessment or resource for use in your own class if you choose to undertake the course assignments.


While there are some exceptions, at most universities (especially larger ones), English professors are hired to teach within a specific field, as seen in the professor hired as an expert on Victorian literature, British Drama or 20th-21st-century American Fiction. In addition to teaching courses in their area of specialization, qualified professors are expected to supervise graduate students (who typically share their research interest), participate in the governance of their department and university (such as serving on committees), and to publish articles and books in recognized journals in their field, such as the PMLA.
It might sound obvious, but make sure you bring your textbooks, class notes, assignments, and anything else that will be useful during your sessions. If you don’t have the materials you need, your tutor will not be able to effectively teach you what you need to know. Save time by having them laid out, organized, and ready to go for your session. If your school utilizes a coursework website, send your tutor the link ahead of time (if possible) so they can see exactly what you’re working on for themselves.
