Hi,
I'm CELTA qualified and experienced in teaching English to adults. Have been doing other types of work (marketing) for the last 7 years though. Thinking of going back to TEFL as I currently need to work flexible hours from home.
Does anyone have recommendations of agencies and advice?

I’ve been looking into that too there definitely seems to be opportunities out there. I found information on Quora about online TESOL although as a sub teacher I would struggle to commit to days and times during the week. Da abc seems to be a good option to get started...

I've checked out a few job ads. There seems to be a lot of evening and weekend work for China. £10-17 per hour.
I'd prefer one-to-one and business classes, or exam prep. I used to teach IELTS and FCE. I'll report back in a month or so once I've tried them.

There was a poster in a recent thread who made really good money working for tutorabc.com.

@oldgimmer78
Thanks for that. I'll find the thread and check them out.

Diana I looked into it and it seems that in order to earn good money you have to be available 9-5 every day. If you make yourself available for flexible hours only it is likely that you will only get around £10 per hour.
