I’t’s been about 18 months since I made the transition from teaching English in classrooms around the world to teaching English online from airbnb’s around the world.
It has granted me a freedom that I could of only dreamed of a few years ago.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed making different cities my home for a few weeks. I prefer taking the time to explore slowly and not rush my experiences. From Budapest to Marrakesh, from Bangkok to London, I’ve been lucky enough to travel to many parts of the globe.
How? All because I make money from my mobile phone.
But, the lifestyle isn’t all travelling and late starts. It’s hard work that requires planning and discipline.
However, in my opinion, the rewards are well worth it.
If you’re willing to put in the hard work, teaching online doesn’t only provide you with a flexible schedule, but it can help you achieve a healthy bank balance.
I’m going to cover travel and teaching online topics such as: portable classrooms, internet backups , devices and much more in future posts. But for now, I want to help you to get on your own way.
So, firstly, you’ll need a job!
Online education is on the rise. There is no shortage of online companies to choose from. Do your research and find out which one is best for you!
I work for Palfish and I LOVE IT!
There are many reasons why working for Palfish is great. Good pay, flexible bookings and a social network of teachers and mentors are just a few.
I’ve helped several teachers get started on Palfish. If you’d like to join the team, download the Palfish app and insert my invitation code – 45012005.
Alternatively, you can drop me a message and I can answer any questions you have.
Palfish only hires native English speakers with a degree. There is no leeway.
When you teach and travel, it is important to ensure you have a quiet space and some privacy.
I’ve found using airbnbs not only the cheapest option, but the least risky. You can message the host in advance to enquire about the wifi and ask any other questions that may effect your teaching experience.
Chances are you already have an airbnb account, but if you don’t, sign up here and help a brother out –
