The eTEFL Online Self-Study Mentorship Course
My name is Thapelo Ntlhabo and I am from South Africa.
I am in the process of building my TEFL career and I have been offered a temporary TEFL-related gig by www.eteflonline.com which I would like to share with you.
My assignment is to test drive their self-study Mentorship Program and then write (or report back) about it here in this space.

SESSION 5 – Other Sources of Income For Online Teachers
This is the last session/part of the mentorship course.
And as the heading says, the session gives advice on how TEFL teachers can earn extra income outside of teaching students. It can be done in three ways:
1. Creating Lesson Material.
– e.g. One can create lesson plans and sell them to fellow teachers.
2. Offering your services on a freelance basis.
– e.g. Doing translation work.
3. Making use of referrals
– e.g. Take up affiliate programs from online schools or training academies (like eTEFL Online)
The final item in this session is the option of booking, for a small fee, a consultation call with our course instructor (Zander Botha), should one need more guidance after finishing the course.
In looking back on the course, I can say it has truly been a blast. I gained much from it.
The biggest benefit, for me, has been how doing the course lit a fire under my bum – 😂, so to speak. As a procrastinator of note, it would probably have taken me ages to do some of the things (e.g. Intro Video) needed for a job search.
Needless to say then, I would highly, highly recommend the course to newly qualified TEFL teachers.
Many thanks to eTEFL Online Teacher Training’s CEO Jody, for giving me the opportunity to test drive their course.
My job applications also continue of course. See the pic below for my latest application.
The Self-Study Mentorship Program is included in all Standard Programs including the Standard Online Teacher Training Program for people who are just starting out and the Standard Mentorship Bundle for people who already have a TEFL, TESOL, or CELTA certificate but need help in launching their online teaching careers.
