I’ve spent a LOT of time going through courses, books, and coaching in order to start my online English teaching business and want to share these resources to help you start teaching English online.

Courses and Coaching:

The Accent Channel Course: This is a course geared towards pronunciation and speech coaches. It has helped me plan all my materials for when I work with my students!

Any Course by Elizabeth Goddard. As online teachers, we also need to learn how to SELL. Her courses can be expensive so I do recommend starting with this FREE COURSE to get an idea of her style.

1:1 Business Coaching. Wow! I never thought I would sign up for this but having someone available to point out my blindspots and help guide the direction of my business was life changing. 

Books:

An Introduction to Coaching for Language Learning. This book really explores how to motivate your students and create goals that are important to them. Everyone learns differently (which we all know as teachers) but I love how this book explored the concept in relation to learning a language.

The English Grammar Workbook for Adults: A Self-Study Guide to Improve Functional Writing. This book is my ultimate guide when helping students with their grammar. I get so many questions about tenses and I often reference this book for how to explain a verb tense to students. 

Building a Story Brand. This is a highly engaging business book and will make you look at the way you market your teaching business differently. Also, the book takes you through an actual process where you can record your thoughts online and really narrow down your marketing message (aka how you are going to sell your lessons). I think it is a great book to start with especially if you are new to starting an online teaching business. It is basically an online course but for a fraction of the price!

Tools:

Ellii (formerly ESL Library). This is an online subscription service that provides so many themed lessons for ESL students. I don’t actively use it anymore but this was a fantastic jumping board after leaving Qkids and deciding to start my own teaching business. If you are unsure what to do when it comes to designing your own curriculum, Ellii is a very affordable option.

Canva.  Honestly, if I didn’t have Canva, I’m not sure how I would be able to post anything online. Canva is how I design ALL my Instagram posts and LinkedIn posts. If you also plan to make ebooks as an online teacher, you can even design ebook covers on Canva! For more detailed information on how I use Canva in my online English teaching business, you can check out THIS VIDEO PLAYLIST with step-by-step tutorials.

Yay! You now have several options for resources to invest in when it comes to growing your online English teaching business!
