Consider seeking out fellow students who could use a proofreader before submitting their next paper. Keep in mind that proofreading is far less “hands-on” than editing. You would not be making extensive corrections to other students’ papers for them, but rather becoming the second set of eyes to point out errors or inconsistencies in their assignment before it goes in for official grading.
The job of an English teacher requires a deep understanding of sentence structure, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and literature. It encompasses teaching creative composition such as prose, poetry, short stories, and narratives as well as technical writing skills which include news articles, reports, journals, and essays. A teacher of English should develop students’ oral and written communication skills, including critical thinking, oral and written comprehension, and problem-solving skills. English teachers are responsible for planning lessons that fit into a school’s approved curriculum and supporting student learning to state standards.
Depending on the exact class that is taught, English teachers can teach creative writing, which focuses on narratives, prose, and poetry. English teachers may also teach students how to write essays, argumentative pieces, news articles, or reports. Oral and written communication skills are tasks that English teachers help develop, as is problem solving skills, critical thinking, and reasoning. Quite often, English teachers are required to teach remedial classes involving grammar and writing skills. English teachers may also work on teaching students how to speak, read, and write English as a second language. This position offers a great opportunity for diversity.
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. 
Adrian has had a very good time working with Leena and I believe has progressed extremely well under her tutelage. At this point we believe that he is in very good shape for now with regard to his grade level math (he currently has a 102+% in the class thanks to some extra credit) and also feels that he understands the material.  Physics tutor is very helpful too.Adrian continues to have good success working with your instructors and we are very satisfied with all of the assistance. I have been trying to convince others to give your service a try and will keep up that effort as I think it is great!

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.
I forgot to also share that I will be starting work with On Point as an Advocacy Coordinator too. It sounds like a great job that helps our fellow Americans keep informed about political issues. On Point is the voice of the average citizens that may have an opinion to share with their politicians but have no way of knowing how to contact them. On Point makes sure those voices get heard. In orientation the trainer said she will be hiring agents again around the middle of June. If you have good writing skills and are a good conversationalist then you may want to check it out. It also seems like if you put forth a little effort, you can make decent wages with them and they do pay weekly. I’m not big into politics but excited about this new venture.

Despite living in a tech-forward world that allows us all to be interconnected entrepreneurs, jumping into the online tutoring pool with both feet can be an overwhelming task — largely due to problems potential and current online tutors are pointing out. Both tutors with online tutoring experience and those without recognize the same three hurdles preventing the industry from developing any faster: technical issues, lack of personal connection with a student, and marketing.
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.
A student seeking initial certification via a bachelor’s degree program must typically complete two years of general education courses. After prerequisites are met, the student must apply for admission to the university’s teacher education program, which typically occurs in the junior year. From that point, the student will take advanced English and literature classes as well as classes in pedagogy designed to instruct the candidate how to teach English successfully in the grade level(s) where the candidate intends to pursue certification. Most candidates will complete the following steps to become an English teacher:

In this increasingly digital world, there has never been a better time to work from home. At-home jobs are the perfect opportunities for those struggling to secure a local gig, need to stay home for health reasons, have to care for a loved one, or simply don't relish the thought of dealing with a hectic commute every day. FlexJobs reported in their The State of Remote Jobs survey that, as of 2017, 43% of U.S. workers now work remotely — even if it's just a part-time side hustle to supplement their income. For remote jobs, you'll need a computer, some basic skills, and a can-do attitude. Click through this list of remote employment areas that are booming right now, plus find even more ways to make money from home.

From my own experience, I’ve used Textbroker to make quick cash for bills. They pay every week on Fridays and if you work a lot every day, you can usually have a substantial amount accumulated by the end of the week — definitely more than the $10 cash out threshold. The only bad thing there is you never know how much work they’ll have up to grab from the order board. But I would say that for me Textbroker has been an excellent source for getting bill money together when I need it quick. Amazon Mturk is another idea. You can cash out there at just $1 and it transfers to your bank account. There is an entire sub-forum about Mturk over at the Work Place Like Home forum where people discuss the best tasks to accept to make the most money. Mturk has a reputation for being just an extra money option, but I know for a fact there are some people making more than just extra money over there.
Because the fee is so small but the task takes so little time, the strategy is to do as many of them as possible. However, be sure to read the fine print because many of these companies have a minimum payout, meaning that if you earn $8.55 doing 20 micro jobs, you may have to wait until you’ve earned as much as $50 to actually get your money. Read more about some of the pitfalls of this kind of work.
All new applicants to the certificate program who are considering beginning the program with any of the other courses should note the required prerequisites must first be completed. EDUC 40989 Introduction to Teaching Online and EDUC 40990 Foundations of Curriculum Design and Evaluation are required prerequisites for all the other courses throughout the program.

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. Many high school English teachers also hold master’s degrees. English teachers often specialize in grammar and various literary genres, like British or American literature, public speaking and debate, drama, short stories or essay writing.
On the postsecondary level, fewer universities are offering tenure-track, full-time positions, which translate into professors having better job security and earning higher pay; therefore, competition is strong for such positions. Candidates, who possess more than the minimum qualifications for a job opening, typically have a better chance of getting hired for coveted position. Those seeking part-time or adjunct positions will find more opportunities to work. As a result, a backlog of unemployed or underemployed Ph.Ds. is being seen as an escalating trend within the English teaching community.
Have you always dreamt of teaching children or young adults but never gotten around to it? Perhaps you've just graduated from school and you're wondering if teaching is your calling. Or maybe you're a born traveler looking to discover new parts of the world while giving back to the community. If any of those cases sounds familiar, volunteering as an English teacher abroad is exactly what you are looking for.
Time management: Whether you want a part-time or full-time online job, working from home can create a load of benefits especially for those with children at home. Managing your time may not always be an option at jobs where your physical presence is needed but online jobs can give you the added time to be at home while holding a full or part-time job.

The time commitment for instructors varies, as new faculty come to the course with varying levels of familiarity using learning management systems (such as D2L’s Brightspace, Blackboard, Canvas or Moodle) and varying levels of classroom experience. Most trainees report that they spend between 7-12 hours per week on the course. This training is required for all new SNHU online adjunct faculty and is paid. New faculty training must be successfully completed before adjunct faculty are eligible to teach online courses with SNHU.
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.
'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.

Answer: In addition to teaching in US schools, English teachers are in high demand overseas. There are many programs that connect recent English graduates with school districts abroad for beginning teaching experience. English teachers may also find job opportunities in the private sector tutoring and coaching English language learners for multi-national corporations.
I am relatively new to tutoring here at LSUS, but I find it quite enjoyable. Every student is capable of doing well in their classes, but sometimes they just need a little push to understand everything. I am happy to help students realize what they are able to do and show them that they can conquer any course. Students often say they are weak in math or just don't get it, but I say they can solve the problems and so can you.
A state-issued teaching certificate or license is generally required to become a high school teacher. However, some private schools do not indicate a teaching credential as a job prerequisite. Specific certification and licensing requirements for high school teachers vary among the states. Teachers are usually required to take professional development courses as a condition of certification.
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.

I have been teaching high school physics and general science for 11 years in Wilton, Simsbury, and now Redding. I also have experience tutoring students in chemistry, geometry, and pre-calculus. I love teaching high school and tutoring with me is often a combination of focused conversation and guided practice. I also focus on representing science and math visually, instead of just crunching through equations. Whether you have fallen behind in your class, or just want an edge keeping up, you can rely on my high school teaching experience to guide you through your science course. ... View Profile

Tutoring from someone who fits your learning and who knows what your educational needs are can make all the difference in the world for a student.
