I don’t have a teaching qualification. Can I still do this?

Yes. We will provide you with a 120-hour online TEFL course and internationally accepted certificate upon completion of the course. We also include the Cambridge TKT course and exam in all of our packages (a free bonus worth $225) as well as the Cambridge Teach English Online course.

Do I need a degree to tutor English online?

No. However, having a degree will certainly open more doors for you as many companies require one. There are many other that don’t, but you may have to accept a lower hourly rate. There are other options though such as working freelance or even starting your own online teaching business. We can assist you with whichever option you choose.

How much can I earn?

Hourly rates vary from company to company and also depend on your qualifications and experience. We’ve seen everything from $5/hour to $30/hour.

Here is a simulation:

Let’s assume you only get $10/hour and only work part-time, say 3 hours per day.

$10 x 3 = $30/day

And let’s assume you work 20 days a month.

$30 x 20 = $600/month, part-time.

If you earned $20/hour, you could earn $1200/month part-time.
If you worked full-time, you could earn up to $3000/month.

Is there an age limit?

Not officially, but as with any profession, the older you are the more difficult it will be to find work. However, as most of the online schools are based in Asia, you will find that they have a culture of respect for older people. Many of our clients are above the age of 40 and all those who have completed their training have gone on to find online employment.

Is there a payment plan?

Yes. We have a 3-month payment plan for our email subscribers only. To join the mailing list, click here.

Is there someone who has already done this program that I can talk to?

Yes. You can contact a selection of online tutors by scrolling down below to Ask Us a Question. Some are previous clients of eTefl Online and others are independent/freelance online tutors. Please note that all of them work independently, are not employees of eTefl Online and have complete discretion to choose who they correspond with.


TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language and is the international standard for tutoring English online or face to face. TESOL and TEFL are interchangeable terms and are used in different parts of the world. The course is designed for those who have no teaching experience and will prepare you to teach English to students who don’t already know the language.

How, exactly, do I tutor English online?

Have a look at our blog section where we have several posts about what your responsibilities will be and how online classes are taught. Click here www.eteflonline.com/blog to read them.

Can I work full-time or part-time?

Both. When you start out with your first online job you will almost certainly be given part-time hours until you gain more experience. You can then request more hours or apply to more online schools to cover the hours you require. It’s quite normal for tutors in this industry to work for 2 or even 3 employers at the same time.

Will eTefl Online help find me an online tutoring job?

Yes. We work with various recruiters who prioritise our applications, we’ll also connect you with online teachers from various schools who can refer you to their employers as well as give you over 100 application links to apply on your own. You’ll also have access to our teacher’s resource centre with useful links to apply for jobs, training videos, videos on how to teach certain areas of English Grammar or pronunciation and done-for-you lesson plans to help get you started.

What is the price in my currency?

You can convert to any currency here.

We work with established, internationally recognised institutions like the International TEFL organisation and Cambridge English Language Assessment. Your qualifications will be internationally recognised and accepted for online or face-to-face tutoring.
