The purpose of the group is to be a place where everyone can help one another. Students will be able to share their experience of how they're applying what they're learning in the course and also the results they're getting. If someone gets stuck along the way then they can reach out for help. Us as the instructors will also be active in the group in order to provide guidance and feedback. Since the online English teaching field is always changing the group will allow everyone to stay up to date with current developments.
I’m not a native English speaker can you still help me?
Yes, we have information in the course that can help you even if you don’t speak English as your native language. We know many people from France, Germany, Poland, Holland, and other countries
that don’t have English as their first language that are teaching English online.
I don’t have a teaching certificate (TEFL/TESOL) can you still help me?
Yes, there are companies that will hire you even if you don’t have a teaching certificate. You will have better chances of employment if you have a certificate but the course will be able to help you locate and approach the right companies in order to make a good impression and get hired. We have friends that started teaching English online when they didn’t have a certificate. If you choose to get a teaching certificate down the road as a member of the YCTEO course we could provide you with information to help you.
Do you provide sample resumes/CV’s?
Yes, the course contains a sample resume/CV for both an experienced teacher and a non-experienced teacher that you can download and use as a reference.
Does the course contain any PDF printables?
Yes, the course contains eight different PDF printables custom created by us such as our Tech Guide, Grammar & Vocabulary Cheat Sheet and Questions to Ask your Student Cheat Sheet among others. Many of these printables can be used while you’re in class so they're really convenient. The main printable that is designed to be used alongside the course is the YCTEO Workbook.
Why should I buy a course about teaching English online, can’t I get all of this information for free on the internet?
Well, it’s true that nowadays you can find almost anything on the internet. This often takes much time and effort. The purpose of this course is to provide you with a shortcut to fast-track the process of you getting a job and succeeding as an online English teacher. Instead of taking years to figure out everything that we’ve learned on your own wouldn’t it be better to benefit from our experience in an easy to follow step-by-step course over a short period of time. In addition to that many things in the course, you will not find online because they have been created specifically for this course. These are things like the YCTEO App, the YCTEO Workbook and many of our printables. You will also not be able to have access to our private community full of people that want to help you along in your journey to teach English online.
Can I reach out to you, Antoine & Kanicia when I have a question?
Yes, we are always here to help. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're enrolled in the course and have a question. We answer all emails that we receive personally and are happy to share our knowledge with you or to guide you in the right direction when it comes to teaching. You can also leave a message in the private Facebook group where ourselves, as well as other students, will be able to help you.
Why is the course priced the way it is?
The cost of the course reflects the amount of work that we have put into it over several months using the knowledge that we have accumulated over the last five years or more about teaching English online. It also reflects the commitment that we have to serious students who are willing to do the work to start teaching. We show that commitment by being available to answer questions either directly or in the private group. In addition to that, the course will be constantly updated and improved over time which is how we show that we care about the content. Whenever there is a course update and this is reflected in the price you as someone who enrolled at a lower price would not be required to pay anything additional. So you are actually getting the course at the lowest price possible for this time before it goes up. We have also included options to make it easier to enroll such as flexible payment plans.
How do I know that you two can really help me?
We are confident that we can help you because we have already helped many others like you. We have already helped several people start teaching English online. We have both been teaching English online for over five years while living abroad. During this time we have been able to support ourselves financially and have never had to return home to work. This is despite the fact that the country where we live has a very bad economy and when we arrived we didn’t speak the language. In addition to that we have maintained a blog called Two People in Spain where we have published 100’s of articles over the years helping people just like you by sharing our experiences and providing tips and insight about the teaching online field. Lastly, we’ve published a book called Teaching Online Master Guide which has sold 100’s of copies to date and is currently listed on Amazon. The book has received great feedback.
Is this course available anywhere else?
No. This course is only available from us directly here on our website. You will not find this course anywhere else on the internet.
Can I really make enough money teaching English online to support myself?
Yes, absolutely. We have been doing this for the last five years. We know of many others both in Spain and in other countries around the world that support themselves in this way.
Why is the enrollment period only open for one week?
We are keeping the enrollment period to only one week because we want to devote more time and focus on personally helping the students that take the class. We will do this through the private group and also by answering any questions that are asked.
What happens after the course enrollment closes?
At that time if you didn’t enroll in the course you'll no longer be able to enroll. You'll find a message that says “This course is not open for enrollment.” All the students that took the opportunity to enroll in the course will be able to benefit from it and receive our personal assistance in the private community.
Is the course content dripped?
No. The entire course will be available to you once you enroll. The content will not be made available progressively.
Will the course help me find specific companies that I can apply for?
Yes. The YCTEO Teaching Directory App contains over 300+ companies that you can research and apply to. In addition to that in the private Facebook group, there will be discussion about which companies are hiring and more so that you can get current relevant information to help you in your job search.
Is this course taught personally by you both?
Yes. This course is taught 100% by us, Antoine & Kanicia. We've developed the entire curriculum and we are the ones who will be teaching you throughout the course in the video lessons.
What is the format of the content in the course?
The content in the course is mainly video consisting of slides, screen casts and recorded video. The course content also includes PDF printables and a workbook.
Is there a minimum age required to enroll?
No, there is no minimum age to enroll. The course is designed to help you find a job as an online English teacher so most of the people that enroll will likely be near or at an age where they would be able to work.
Is there any type of certificate provided in this course?
Yes, there is a certificate of completion that is provided when you complete the course. We want you to know that this is NOT the same as a TESOL/TEFL teaching certificate. Instead, this is a certificate showing that you completed the You Can Teach Online Course.
