Online English Teacher Co
Practice for your demo lesson with us!
Your demo lesson determines your hourly wage.
All online ESL companies pay their teachers different amounts. ESL teachers with experience get paid more than those who don't have any. If you have a Bachelor of Education or a CELTA, you’ll receive more than someone without these qualifications. But, a candidate’s teaching ability is judged solely on their demo lesson… and excelling in this 15 minute "test” can lead to hundreds (if not thousands) of extra dollars in your pocket.
Candidates with the EXACT SAME experience, qualifications and education can start on different hourly rates. All schools decide an hourly rate for the applicants which they set while watching them teach their first practice lesson.
Schools have a $1 - $2 wage differential for all new teachers.
Now $1 or $2 might not seem like that much but let’s calculate how much extra money you could be earning:
This demo lesson practice saves you $90 to $180 dollars EVERY MONTH.
Teachers can usually ask for a pay raise after 6 months so let’s presume their wage won’t increase until then.
Performing well in your demo lesson can help you earn an extra $560 - $1120 USD in 6 months.
You can earn your demo lesson fee back in LESS THAN ONE WEEK teaching online.
1. Book a Call
We’ll be in touch via email to confirm the appointment and collect some more information about your demo lesson. If you have not been given lesson materials, we will provide you with some.
It's time for your 25 minute appointment. You'll spend 15 minutes teaching your student (one of our team) and then we'll have 10 minutes for feedback, advice and questions.
4. Follow up
We'll send you a set of written notes as well as a video recording of your demo lesson which you can watch back to see what you did well and where you can improve.
Are you worried that you won’t perform to the best of your ability in your demo or that you’ll struggle to show how good of a teacher you are in just 15 minutes?
Do you want to see your students enjoying your lesson, having FUN and learning at the same time?
Imagine the interviewer’s face when you WOW them - after completing an AMAZING demo lesson!
That's why we're here...
We provide a safe space to practice teaching a demo lesson, no matter what stage you're at:
- Whether you're completely new to teaching and need to learn the basics
- You're simply looking to perfect your teaching skills before your demo.
Do you dread the thought of going into your demo lesson, being underprepared, freezing or running out of material halfway through?
How would it feel to go into your demo lesson confident, prepared and excited, having practiced it before and knowing that nothing can surprise you?
Many teachers have been turned down, not because they aren’t good enough teachers but because of nerves or lack of practice. We make sure that doesn't happen.
If you get hired at one of our partner schools, we'll refund you the full amount that you paid for your demo lesson practice.
Once you have been hired by one of our partner schools, just let us know and we'll give you your money back - all of it, no questions asked!
