There are lots of opportunities to teach English as a foreign language online. Have a look through for some information or get in touch.
Part of what enables us to live off grid so minimally is online English teaching.
To teach online, you’ll need a laptop or PC, a head set, a good Internet connection (companies will test it!), a plain background, and lots of enthusiasm.
You will have lots of fun, flexibility and learn about other people’s cultures.

The only requirements are that you must be from the U.S, Australia, Canada, or New Zealand and have a good internet connection. It would also help if you have teaching experience and are knowledgeable in the subject you choose to teach. Please check it out if you’re interested!
If you have a degree, read on…
It doesn’t matter to many online English teaching companies what your degree subject is nor the grade you achieved. You will be expected to work towards a specific certificate for teaching English as a second language. These can be called TEFL or TESOL. If you are only looking to teach online, you can get away with a really cheap course. If you’re looking to make this a more serious career step, Premier TEFL offer a very good course. Alternatively, you could even do your course abroad and be guaranteed a job at the end!
Are from South Africa or not a native English speaker?
The majority of Asian-based English teaching companies only accept applications from native speakers from the US, Canada, the UK, sometimes South Africa, Australia and NZ too. iTutor will however accept applications from near native speakers so you don’t have to be from one of those countries listed.
You will need:
- A degree.
- TEFL can be obtained within 30 days of starting.
- Minimum of 1 year teaching experience
- To be enthusiastic and professional
- To have great communication and presentation skills
- To be computer literate
