About TeacherTee

Think of us as your one-stop-shop for all things online teaching, from learning resources to the most credible TEFL courses and a job board brimming with roles in the world’s most reputable online schools.

The facts

The demand for online teaching is growing all over the globe, but the Chinese market is easily the largest…

• There are an estimated 200 million English language students in China
• China’s English language education market is one of the fastest-growing year-on-year.
• Estimates show there is a shortage of over 100,000 English teachers in the country.
• Online teaching schools are booming as a result.
• The demand for native English-speaking teachers has sky-rocketed.

That’s where you come in.

The low-down

• Teachers are usually expected to work for four hours a day for at least four days. For instance, if you working for a Chinese school, peak teaching times are from 11:00 – 15:00 GMT (for those based in the UK). A late start and an early finish… not bad, eh?

This is because online schools operate after physical school hours, from 18:00 – 22:00 in Beijing (BJT). Your working hours will obviously vary depending on where in the world you’re based and for which market you are working in, but most time zones offer appealing hours to compliment your lifestyle.

• No degree, no problem: we have lots of jobs here that do not require a degree, as long as you have a TEFL Certificate. No TEFL yet? Not an issue. See our TEFL section where we have compiled a list of most credible course providers to the UK market – and where you’ll get the most bang for your buck.
