Please now find answers below to some of the more popular TEFL Jobs questions:
Who can I expect to be teaching English to?
If teaching adults, you’ll have the option of teaching either Business or General English in classrooms or on location at companies, where your classes will consist of small groups or individual students. With the teaching adults scenario, you can expect to be teaching students who already have at least a basic grasp of the English language as Beginners and False Beginners tend to be taught by local teachers who are more easily able to communicate the grammar fundamentals. Each language level does have its own challenges but as a general rule, the higher the level the less demanding your lessons will seem and the less time you will need to spend on lesson preparation.
Teaching English to teenagers, young learners and very young learners is a popular choice for teachers wishing to teach in countries such as China, where class numbers are often high and where you can expect to face the challenge of teaching multiple students with multiple learner levels. Teaching children is definitely a much more demanding path to take, but the rewards are there in the form of higher salaries and a job satisfaction which can only be attained through teaching young minds.
The third teaching option, which has become increasingly popular over the last five years, is teaching English online. One of the main reasons for this teaching method’s popularity is that it offers time flexibility: lesson times are arranged as per mutual agreement between the teacher and student, and both the teacher and student enjoy the luxury of having the lesson from the comfort of their own home or office and without the need to spend time and money traveling out to the classroom location.
At what times of the day can I expect to be teaching English?
If teaching children, your classes will run in accordance with the standard school day of whichever region you have chosen to teach in. And if you are teaching adults, you would normally expect to be busy in the mornings and late afternoons/evenings and have your afternoons free.
Where can I expect to be teaching?
It has become somewhat vogue for many Online TEFL schools to copy-and-paste exotic white sand beach images on their homepages in the hope of winning customers who identify with the cool breezes of tropical coastlines. What is very important to understand is that it is extremely unlikely that you will get to teach English on a beach. Besides, we know that you are far too smart to believe otherwise. The vast majority of classes take place in the larger cities, where there is the money available for people to afford English classes. One of the major positives of teaching English is that you’ll often find yourself with long weekends freed up, and, of course, those extended summer holidays, and it’s at these times when you will have the opportunity of traveling and feeling the freedom afforded of teaching English abroad.
How much can I expect to earn Teaching English as a Foreign Language?
Teaching English salaries vary widely, depending on where and who you choose to teach. The highest salaries are to be found teaching in locations such as Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and United Arab Emirates. As an example, you can earn up to $5,000 USD per month in Japan. In Europe, you can expect to be earning a decent local wage – meaning you probably won’t be able to afford to buy a car, but you’ll earn enough to fund your lifestyle and be able to afford weekend trips and holidays.
Online teachers can expect to earn between US$20 and US$40 per hour. It is possible to earn much less and much more, but US$20-US$40 is a realistic range.
Does tefl online pro organize job placements or internships?
We don’t organize job placements or internships and the reason for this is because if we were starting out as English teachers again, we wouldn’t accept a placement or internship teaching job. There are just so many teaching opportunities out there, so why accept a job which will offer a lower-than-standard starting salary? Many schools do offer both these options as a way of guaranteeing employment for their graduates, but we don’t recommend either option because in many examples the school gets a cut of your wages as the middle person in the agreement, and also because these types of employment almost always come with extremely strict contractual terms. An internship to gain experience or a placement to guarantee work might initially seem like an attractive offer, but when you take your TEFL certification with a company that provides ongoing job support there is absolutely no reason to play it safe and opt for second best.
