Online Teaching Business: Course & Conversations on WizIQ

Education & Technology

Teaching My Own Courses
You can teach your own courses for free or for a fee and generate income. Other teachers are doing it and so can you. It takes the right attitude and motivation to get started, but the process is worthwhile for those who give it a shot. Here are just two online teaching businesses that started by teachers for teachers like you. Will you pay or be paid?

Teachers Should be Making Money Instead of Schools

PSA & The Consultants-E Online Teaching Companies
There are many successful online teaching businesses that you can join as a student and pay lots of money, or you can create your very own online teaching business. Pete Sharma and Associates (PSA) is an “educational consultancy and training organisation for schools and education authorities. PSA writes and runs courses worldwide on how to successfully integrate educational technology into language courses and The Consultants-E are two model business that combine face-to-face and online courses for the general public world-wide”.

The Consultants-E
The Consultants -E is another successful online teaching business. “The Consultants-E have worked together since the mid-1990s. In 2003 we became established as a limited company. Our work involves any aspect of online and distance education and training, as well as face-to-face training in all aspects of the application of technologies in education”. But not everything has a fee. The Consultants-E also offer scholarships. The company is such a success that the directors, Gavin Dudeney and Nicky Hockly have added a team of highly-skilled professionals, for both online tutoring and consultancy work. Nicky and Gavin travel around the globe giving workshops and no, not for free. You don’t need a high degree to run an online teaching business. In fact, a BA is enough to start an online teaching business. It’s not about degrees or professional background in teaching. It’s about how you market your business.
