College Students Earn Extra Income as Online English Teachers

Posted: March 4, 2021

(March 4, 2021) – Teaching English Online Is A Viable Option For New College Graduates Looking To Make Extra Income. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the online teaching industry and demand for qualified online ESL teachers is proving to be a viable option for new graduates. TEFL certified teachers are being recruited to meet the increased demand of student needs.

History has shown that teaching is one of the most recession-proof jobs in the United States. But even beyond its economic value, teaching is one of the most rewarding careers a person can have. Particularly at a time when students need more support than ever to help meet their learning goals.

The pandemic may have disrupted the education sector but it has also provided an opportunity for new graduates in the education industry to adapt and pivot in the remote learning environment. This is a great time for new graduates entering the workforce to earn income and gain valuable work experience by completing an online TEFL certification and applying to work as a ESL teacher.

Teach Away, a mission-driven education company, has seen teacher training enrollments soar 3x since the pandemic began.

ESL teachers help English language learners whose first language isn’t English to reach English fluency as their second language. As a flexible online job, graduates have the opportunity to work as many or as few hours as they want to fit into their schedules. The freedom allows ESL teachers to customize their hours while meeting their personal and family life needs.

It’s an opportunity to work from home, take advantage of the existing technology in the house and make supplementary income. All that is required is a stable internet connection, a laptop, a built-in or external webcam, a headset and a quiet, well-lit space to teach English lessons.

Teach Away is partnered with some of the best North American educational institutions to qualify College graduates to teach English online and overseas, once it is safe to do so. The 120-hour TEFL course is easy to complete right at home and provides an internationally recognized qualification.

Caitlyn Causey, a certified ESL teacher and recent TEFL graduate, spoke on a recent Good Morning America segment, Pandemic career pivots that may help you and your bank account, about the benefits of completing the TEFL certification. “It is a great way to supplement my income,” she said, allowing her to take care of her family during unprecedented times.

Upon completion of the program, graduates can easily search and apply to jobs using Teach Away’s online job portal. Detailed information sessions, ebooks and webinars about the TEFL certification process will also be provided for College career centres upon request (through the media contact below).
