Online ESL Teacher Job Description
Here is a video to give you an idea of the typical lessons:
Preference is given precisely to teachers with experience in the courses, as there is created a more competitive environment that stimulates the teacher to development. It is important to have international certificates – this is also evidence that the teacher is professionally developing and then will be able to qualitatively prepare for the international examinations of his students, going through everything himself.
Another important factor is the experience of living abroad. Most of our teachers have had the experience of living in an English-speaking country (for work, under the program Work & Travel), or travelling around the world. Thus, they expand their picture of the world, enhance the sociocultural and sociolinguistic competence and can transfer their knowledge to our students.
