Teaching English online is a highly popular industry where English teachers communicate with and teach non-native English students via a webcam and microphone. These teachers and students are located around the world depending on the company they are working for and learning through. Here at Dux, we aim to support you through the initial details and application process as efficiently as possible in order for you to receive safe, secure, and satisfying online employment.
The online teaching industry underwent rapid changes since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and finding an English teaching position can sometimes be challenging for various reasons. International travel restrictions, mass job losses, and strict lockdown regulations caused online teaching companies to be swamped with new teacher applications as these positions allowed people to teach from home, without any teaching experience too!
Because many companies became oversaturated with applications, it reduced the fee for online teachers to a certain extent. Also, many of these applications came from people who had never been in the teaching industry before but could still pull off an impressive demo lesson (something companies use to assess an applicant’s teaching skills). Therefore, finding an online teaching job became more about good timing and less about teaching credentials and experience. That said, Dux is here to assist you and we have provided some helpful information below to help get you started!
Considering all of the above points, our aim here at Dux is to provide the most accurate and efficient assistance to all of our teachers with finding an online job and teaching from home. Not only will our internationally accredited 120-hour online TEFL/TESOL course deem you eligible for all online teaching companies (provided you fulfil the other general requirements i.e. bachelor’s degree, native-English nationality, etc), but you will be able to get an authentic feel for how the industry functions with the guidance from our education experts.
From all of us here at Dux, we wish you well on your online teaching journey and are with you every step of the way!
