Hey, thanks for stopping by! My name is Caitriona (Irish name; pronounced ca-tree-na). I currently teach English online and help other people do the same.
I’ve taught English online and abroad since 2016. 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.
Our Mission at TPR Teaching
TPR Teaching blog’s mission is to educate and inspire others who want to become online teachers. It has also evolved to be a useful resource site for English language learners or those who want to improve their English writing and communication skills!
English is the global language, and we want to help as many people as possible. That’s where TPR Teaching comes in.
If you are an English language teacher or you want to become one, I will show you how you can teach from the comfort of your own home.
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.
I first started teaching in summer schools in the U.K. and Spain during the summer months of university. I also taught online during the academic year.
I found teaching very flexible, as I set my own hours and only worked when I wasn’t under pressure at university. It was a dream job for me!
ESL Online Companies
I worked with several online teaching companies, including Dada, iTutorgroup, and Cambly, to name a few!
When I finished university, I had the sole intention to travel and earn an income online.
I earned up to $21 per hour teaching online with online ESL companies. I then started to brand myself and make my own ESL lesson material. I took on private students in small groups.
As a result, my earnings skyrocketed! I was earning up to $65 per hour teaching ESL online to groups, all while managing my blog, TPR Teaching.
Informing Teachers with The Know-How
I hope you take some time to look around the site and see if you think teaching English is the right fit for you.
I want to teach others what I wish I knew before I started teaching abroad and online so you can make good decisions moving forward.
Helping English Langauge Learners
I want to help English language learners improve and grow their language skills, such as speaking and writing skills.
