Teach English to Adults in ChileI have always been fascinated by languages and cultures. From an early age, I was exposed to foreign languages and wanted to learn how they work. The idea of sharing that knowledge with others and watching how they learn to communicate in a new language was just captivating. I think that was my main motivation to become an ESL teacher.

    Work as a Freelance ESL teacher in Toronto, Canada!I taught in private language schools for over 6 years and throughout that time, I always wanted more time and freedom to be able to do what I wanted both in and out of the classroom. I never knew exactly how I would achieve this or if this was even possible. In 2017, however, this became a reality. I had just arrived home from teaching abroad and I was feeling lost. This gave me a chance to ask myself what I really wanted to do. Though I didnt have a very clear answer, I knew for sure that I still enjoyed teaching. I went back to teaching at a language school for a few months. I then realized that I wanted to teach English privately in a one-to-one setting. Back then, the reason was simple: I liked that I could address the unique concerns every student has with English. That was when I decided to become a freelance private English teacher. I never expected that it would give me everything I always longed for when I was teaching in a classroom.

The school is thriving and hiring more teachers when a lot of other smaller schools are cutting back on teaching hours.  There are many job opportunities in Taiwan so you can live comfortably and save money.
