Hey, thanks for stopping by! My name is Caitriona (Irish name; pronounced Katrina) I currently teach English online and help other people do the same.
I’ve taught English for 3 years part-time but only started it full time in the last year. It helped support me through college and provided me with so many opportunities. I was quite young when I first started and I really had a lot to learn.
My Story – How I began Teaching English
Completing a TEFL course at just 18 years old gave me the qualifications necessary to go out and carve my own teaching path. It wasn’t always easy but I learned my own lessons along the way. You can check out this article I wrote for a TEFL website after my first trip abroad. The quality of my iPod 5 really says it all.
Our Mission at TPR Teaching
TPR Teaching blog’s mission is to educate and inspire others who want to become online teachers. As the digital world evolves, you can make the most of the opportunities it presents!
If you want to work from home, travel or need a part-time job, I highly recommend teaching English online. All you need is a quiet space with a laptop, headset and wifi. You can literally teach from anywhere.
The great thing about online teaching is that it can be casual or formal, with or without a degree. You don’t even have to be a native English speaker, however fluency is an obvious requirement! Please note that a teaching certificate is also a necessity to start teaching English. These are quite easy to do, some TEFL certificates can even be completed in just a short weekend.
