Well-fed freelance writers stay out of “content farms” and bidding sites, where you compete with hundreds of other writers for the same projects and get the gig if you under-quote yourself enough. To be a well-fed freelance writer, you need to go out there and market yourself to your target audience – usually, marketing managers – like any other business owner.
“TEFL” is the acronym for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, or simply, English language instruction for non-native speakers. Also known as Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or English Language Teaching (ELT), the field of TEFL/TESOL is one of the fastest growing educational fields in the world, presenting thousands of excellent professional opportunities in all corners of the globe to native and fluent English speakers who achieve their TEFL/TESOL certification. These terms are essentially interchangeable in the international English teaching market, our certifications list both terms.
I am currently pursuing a Ph. D. in Organic Chemistry, and I have completed a B. S. in Medicinal-Pharmaceutical Chemistry with a GPA of 3. 7. I've taught 4 laboratory classes ranging from General Chemistry Lab to Advanced Biochem/Organic Lab. I have also been a supplemental instruction leader for a General Chemistry course, and a teaching assistant for Organic Chemistry I. I have had experience in instructional design, instructional videos, group learning, as well as individual teaching. I have helped individual students struggling with General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry succeed in their classes through individual and small-group tutoring sessions. I have a passion for helping students learn through organized instruction, and would love to hear from you!
A two-year college English professor may spend their time offering basic writing courses, business writing courses, or courses for students enrolled in applied degree programs (for example, Writing for Nurses or Writing for Engineers). Professors may also teach entry-level courses to students that enter college with a requirement to pass an introductory course in English, based on previous low-ranking test scores.
This online teaching service connects students to tutors from computers in their local library, community center, school, after-school program, or from home. To become certified as an online tutor, you must have a degree from or be enrolled in a U.S. or Canadian college, then you must pass a test in your area of specialty and submit a writing sample. The process takes 1–3 weeks. Pay is based on the subject tutored and the number of hours tutored.
