Work at Home as an ESL Teacher Online

Hmmm....interesting work at home opportunity here. First off, I know the title states ESL teacher, but ESL experience (English as a second language) is not required as complete training is provided. So no worries on that aspect.

The company is "I Speak U Speak", ISUS, and is dedicated to international online ESL training.

Basic responsibilities of an ESL Online teacher are:

* Teaching class sessions via the telephone (20 to 25 minute sessions). Students receive approximately 1 class a week.
* Sending corrections and feedback after every session (5 to 10 minutes).
* Monitoring student's progress on Global English.

ESL Telephone teachers work year-round,and can normally teach up to 25-30 hours a week, Monday to Friday although teachers can work as little or as much as they want.

Because there are many different students in various time zones, there is quite a bit of flexibility as far as working hours goes. Most teachers prefer to work in blocks of 2-4 hours.

Class sessions last half an hour per session with 20-25 minutes for class and 5 to 10 minutes for feedback/correction.

Teachers are hired as freelance workers, and are paid for the number of hours they do on a monthly basis. Rates of pay are very competitive and quoted according to your country of fiscal residence and local currency.

Telephone cost compensation is paid on a monthly basis according to a fixed rate telephone cost budget using VOIP (Voice Over IP) telecommunications packages such as Skype. A contract is provided to establish rate of pay, payment method and and procedure.
