Do you have a passion for teaching? Are you patient and passionate about English language?Then, this job is for you.

I am pretty sure that many home based workers will agree to me when I say that there is a high demand for Online English Tutorial or English as a Second Language  (ESL) teachers. This a great career to pursue. Many companies would hire home based mothers or college students to do the job. Most of the students that needs tutorials are Koreans and Japanese.

The basic requirements are good command of English, working computer (with working camera and headset with mic), and a stable internet connection because tutorial sessions are one-on-one English lessons through the free service of Skype that a wireless connection or usb type internet connection might not be able to work at all times. On most occasion, this is a flexible time job that you are able do decide your lesson fees and time, but I guess sometimes it depends upon the company.
As a tutor, you need to be lively, patient, polite and effective. Be friendly but not too talkative, also engage the student to speak and not to only listen. It is also important to understand the culture and tradition of your student so you have wide range of topics you can tackle about and your teaching session will not grow boring. You might consider to try to get into trainings for online tutors for a better teaching experience.
