How I Teach English Online From My Room

Even though I am an au pair and have a job, the boys are at school and daycare for the whole day. This leaves me with a whole day free to do as I please. At first this was great, but after a while it gets a little boring. I needed something to do and I also missed teaching.

I saw multiple people talking about how they were teaching English online from their homes! How awesome is that?! At first I thought it was too good to be true and probably just a scam, but I tried it out anyways. And I’m excited to share with you!

How I Teach English Online

I actually teach English online two different ways. One is more informal with an app call Palfish. You can set your own hours and even what you want to teach. I do social conversations and just let students talk to me about whatever they would like instead of “teaching” them. I think it is a really low-risk way for non-native speakers to practice their English.

The second way, and the one I mostly use, is with a company called QKids previously Funbulous. Their Chinese name is “Jiuqu English.” Since China is 12 hours ahead of the U.S. the teaching times are in the morning or at night. The classes are only 30 minutes long and the lessons are provided for you! I honestly think this is the best and easiest job I have done before.
