Frequently Asked Questions
I don’t have a teaching qualification. Can I still do this?
Yes. We will provide you with an accredited 120-hour or 140-hour online TEFL course completion of the course. This is the international standard for teaching online and face-to-face.
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 $50/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 $50/hour, you could earn $3000/month part-time.
If you worked full-time, you could earn up to $6000/month.
Is there an age limit?
Not officially, some online schools prefer younger teachers but others don’t. Our Advanced and Entrepreneur Online Teacher Bundles include support for freelancing which will help you get your own students, teach what you want to, set your own rates, and bypass the schools altogether if you prefer.
Is there a payment plan?
Yes, we do. When you choose your Online Teaching Bundle, you will be given the choice to pay in full or pay a 50% down payment and 2 more monthly payments of 27,5% each totalling 105% of the total fee. (We add 5% for admin charges)
Are your courses accredited?
Yes, they are. OTTSA is a UK accreditation body that specialises in the moderation and accreditation of online TEFL courses. Your certificate will be recognised and accepted globally by employers, recruiters and government agencies. You can check our accreditation status here.
How do I get started?
Your first step is to enroll in one of our Online Teacher Bundles.
You can pay in your preferred currency with your debit or credit card or with PayPal.
The currency will default to your country automatically.
What will I learn in the TEFL course?

You can see a breakdown of the course contents by clicking here.
What is TEFL/TESOL?
TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language and TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. These acronyms are used interchangeably in different parts of the world and are the international standards for tutoring English online or face to face. The course is designed for those who have no experience teaching a new language and will prepare you to teach English to students who don’t already know the language.
How, exactly, do I tutor English online?

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. Our Online Teacher Bundles are designed to give you the skills and tools to work for both online schools and for yourself so you decide how many hours you want to work.
Will eTEFL Online help find me an online tutoring job?
Yes. We work with various recruiters who prioritise our applications, and help you get your own students as a freelancer.
