High school English teachers are charged with preparing students for the college and this means, they are not only expected to introduce students to a range of literary traditions but also ensure that students have the reading comprehension and writing skills required to pass college admissions tests, such as the SAT, as well as succeed at the post-secondary level.
While English teachers are by no means all cast from the same mold, they are typically people who love literature, possess strong reading and writing skills, and enjoy sharing their love of literature and writing with others. Since English plays an important role in all other subjects in school, opportunities to teach are always available at all levels of education, with the highest-paid positions typically founds at colleges and universities.

The level of experience required for online jobs varies based on the type of job. Most sales reps do not require a college degree, but some companies that sell specialized equipment ask that applicants have a degree in a specific field. Many online writers and editors have a high school diploma or its equivalent, but some companies require that writers have a degree in journalism, communications or a similar field.
Over the last few years online tutoring sites have really boosted in popularity. The reason for this is people just don't have the time or the money to spend at an actual tutoring center. Online Tutoring is an ideal solution, as it can be done at home on a computer or mobile device and is usually a much cheaper alternative. Also, online tutoring/teaching is a nice way for educators to earn some extra money doing what they love from the comfort of their own home, setting their own schedule. Plus, students love the ability to view and choose courses that work for them.

Wow! This is a tough one. Honestly, don't do it if you cannot stand kids/young adults. Don't think that a high school class is going to be anything like your LIT 451 class - you know, where all 15 of you sit down with the professor and discuss Frankenstein through a Freudian lens. Don't think that all your kids are going to like reading Jane Eyre because you like it. Know that parents are going to blame you for every horrid grade/missing assignment. Know that when you finally get used to one lesson plan format or standardized test, that the state will change it and you'll have to learn something new. Understand, quickly, that the bad days will probably outweigh the good ones, but that it only takes one student to grow to love reading to make you feel accomplished and appreciated. Understand that students rarely will understand why they have to read classics and why your class is important when they know they want to major in Biology, but that in a few years one of them will send you a letter in the mail thanking you for all you did for them.
I'm only a quarter into this book but felt compelled to put it down and leave a rave review. The book is top notch. So many ebooks nowadays seem to be thrown together to make a buck by someone who you can quickly tell has no actual experience. This book is the opposite of that - it's based on lots of excellent real life experience and it's chock-a-block full of how-tos, excellent resources, advice and more. As has been mentioned, the repeated attempts to sell his courses to the reader are unnecessary - really the author makes the case for his courses without any hard sell so needn't repeat it multiple times. And the formatting of images is wonky on my Kindle with the image overlaying the text in many places. Small quibbles though given the meaty content of this book. I'm bookmarking page after page and am delighted with my purchase. Highly recommended!
Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is a high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, Pennsylvania. She is passionate about her subject and popular with her students, but lives alone in simple circumstances. Cursed with a hopeless romantic soul, she lives in a world of men unable to match her impossible standards. When her former star pupil Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns from New York, crushed and insecure after failing to succeed as a playwright, Linda convinces him to produce his play at the school, as the play is far too good to never reach a stage. Jason's overbearing father, Dr. Tom Sherwood (Greg Kinnear), pressures him to attend law school instead, which he finally relents to lest his ulcer be the end of him with no other prospects in sight. Complications arise after Linda and Jason, in a moment of impulsive creative madness, have a sexual encounter on her classroom desk. Various jealousies and rumours ensue, affecting her and everyone around her including the production of Jason's play. When the school heads are confronted with proof of her indiscretion with a former student, Linda is fired on the spot. Embarrassed and in erratic egress from the situation, Linda storms off, gets into a minor car collision, and ends up at an A&E where she's attended to by no other than Dr. Tom Sherwood. When she is moved by his gracious manner after having been mean to him on a previous occasion, she guiltily admits to having had sex with his son.
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.

Volunteers can have a huge impact on the children and students in these less fortunate areas and schools by exposing them to the English language. Creating fun exercises which will help with their pronunciation and conversation skills are a great start to increase their English language awareness. Volunteers can help support schools by contributing their time and offering their teaching skills. This way, students get the opportunity to learn English from fluent English speakers which will open doors that would otherwise remain closed.
Some special needs students can really benefit from online tutoring because it takes place in a familiar setting. It can take a lot of time for some children to open up to a new teacher, and being in an environment they’re already comfortable with can expedite the process. That means some students will find it easier to hit the ground running with their new tutor.
