What our online teachers are saying…
Ms. A (living abroad)
I teach online lessons while raising our two children outside of Japan. I usually teach English three days a week, (Two weekdays + Saturday), when I don't have my main job or between house chores. I have a lot of bookings and gained more regular students!
Ms. B (living in the countryside)
There are not many jobs where I can use my English, so my main work is teaching English online. Even though I teach online every day on weekdays, I can spend the weekend with my family.
I had not taught English before, but now I really enjoy it!
Ms. C (with a small child)
I used work at a language school. Now I teach online when my child is at the nursery and after 9PM when they are asleep. I usually teach 3 lessons a day, this way I can continue working without difficulty. I feel my English has been improved.
