Work From Home Tips

Do not worry if you finish much quicker. Take the extra time off with no guilt because many home-workers find they complete work at home that much quicker than in an office because there is no-one to gossip with or distractions. It is estimated that about 40% of time in an office is wasted through chatting, sending personal e-mails, joking and having banter. Though this fun can keep an organisation or team happy and make them gel thus increasing team productivity it does lower time spent on the job.

Avoid working at home in your pyjamas, night dress, dressing gown or boxer shorts. Getting dressed as if for the office will keep your mind focused.

If you have the space have a separate room or area just for your activity so that relatives and other people in your house know you are busy and should not be disturbed.

Some people dress in smart clothes, a suit or shirt and tie and leave the house, go for a short walk, like they would if they had to commute, then come back and go straight to their desk. It helps them focus their mind and get into the office mindset.

Teaching Online Courses

One involves teaching online courses in languages. This is ideal for those who speak and/or can write a second language and think that they can teach other people. Teaching a language online could be a great way for you to earn some extra money in your free time.

To become an online language teacher you will need an understanding of the language that you would like to teach. So much so that you would be able to simplify your speech so that a beginner will be able to understand you and develop their own use of the second language. A background or experience in language education and teaching is helpful but not essential since most of the people you will be teaching will be more interested in building their conversation skills and fluency than on specific grammar points when they enrol.

It is recommended to read up on the subject of how to teach grammar. One such resource is Martin Parrot's excellent 'Grammar for English Language Teachers' Grammar for English Language Teachers: With Exercises and a Key which includes exercises and advice on how to plan lessons.

An experienced teacher who is used to more traditional classroom teaching will be able to easily transfer their skills. There are further resources available to help which includes the book Teaching Online: A Practical Guide.

Those who wish to teach will need regular access to a PC with internet connection and a webcam for face to face teaching and interaction with pupils. Many teachers use a headset with built in microphone for comfort as well as a greater sound quality which is particularly useful for a pupil who is still coming to grips with the sounds of a new language.

Delivery of the class can utilise communication software such as Skype.

Learning is often described as a two way process and many who teach online courses describe learning things from their pupils in the course together, one described learning about olive farming.

Teaching Online Courses


Teaching online courses can help to develop your professional career and teachers may wish to take a TEFL course or even an MA in applied linguistics. This can easily help the teacher to teach languages worldwide in a variety of settings. Such qualifications may be available at evening classes in local colleges and further education establishments. A qualified teacher can earn extra cash by teaching such evening classes.

Those who are already qualified teachers and wish to go out to work could try their local academic institutions and enquire if they offer online language classes to which you can join the teaching staff. Though you may need to do rigid hours depending on the time zones of the students and the opening times of the facilities.
