There probably isn’t a better time to teach English online!
Most of the world’s learning is now taking place in living rooms instead of classrooms, and millions of people are unemployed and looking to make money from their home.
Even before the pandemic, teaching English online is one of the fastest growing online careers. There is a huge demand in Asia, and that demand is only going to grow in Europe and South American in the coming years.
I’ve compiled a list of the top 25 online ESL companies that you can apply to today!
The creativity, time and effort put into many of them is nothing short of inspiring. Sticker charts, prop boxes, creative backgrounds – I’d love to be a student in one of those teacher’s lessons.
I think most online teachers would agree that a good classroom can really enhance the learning experience and create a more enjoyable lesson for both the student and the teacher.
However, not all teachers have the luxury of space, money or educational resources to compete with some of the online ESL titans on google.
I’m here to help you out with a simple tip that will enable you to create the illusion of a 5 star classroom, without costing an arm and a leg!
Yes, just wrapping paper. Simple.
Wrapping paper is….
Easy to find
Available in millions of options
Easy to put-up & replace
Changeable to suit the class type, season, student
Simple to cut & fit
I travel a lot! As an online ESL teacher, I have found that wrapping paper is the best thing to carry because it’s light and requires hardly any space. It’s also quick and easy to pin up in airbnb’s & hotel rooms.
I also stick to a wrapping paper background when I’m in a fixed location because even a small amount, with the right placement, can give the illusion of a grand classroom with hours of effort put into it.
So, when it doubt, chuck some wrapping paper up on the wall and brighten up your lessons!
