Teaching English online: opportunities and pitfalls

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Freelance teaching is still a cottage industry, but it's becoming more widespread and systems and supports are being developed. At the leading edge of this wave is the teaching of English online, probably because there is such a large demand. This article from the Brritish Council outlines some of these as it describes sopme pitfalls for online English teachers to avoid. What I wish the article described - and it does not, not even in the comments (which are nonetheless worth reading) is how much you can make teaching English online. If anybody knows, please let me know - it's always nice to have a backup career. :)
