Louisa will work with you to help you become a better teacher, increase your appeal to students, and streamline your online teaching efforts, saving you valuable time and money and giving you the tools you need to set up as an independent English teaching professional.

How this interactive coaching course works

After booking, you can start your pre-sessional module, where you’ll tell us about your current teaching and complete a thorough needs analysis so Louisa can tailor the online support sessions to meet your needs. You will work on your goals between live modules with her support. 

If you wish, Louisa will observe you teaching live classes, or you can try out teaching ideas in one-to-one sessions for detailed and dedicated feedback.

You can choose the dates for the live training by arrangement. The date you book is a guide only.

What you focus on depends on your objectives, but typically you will learn how to:

  • set up your teaching niche and create a winning bio
  • create free trial lessons that convert
  • understand what your students want and need and make sure you deliver
  • learn how to adapt material for multiple classes to save time planning
  • discover the best sources of free material online
  • teach tricky areas like grammar, business lessons
  • keep your students motivated, engaged and coming back for more
  • source students (please note this is not a marketing session)
  • price and package lessons and make it easy for students to pay
  • access simple record-keeping and admin options to save you hours

Meet your course tutor

Online teaching business owner Louisa Walsh will be your coach, helping you bring the different strands of online English together in a series of unique coaching Spotlight sessions. With over 6000 hours of online teaching experience under her belt, and years more of in-class and teacher training, she will show you some of the tips and tricks of the trade, helping to make you a better, more efficient and confident TEFL teacher.

"I’ve learned the hard way about what works, how to ‘sell’ my classes, engage students so they keep coming back for years of learning and how to price my lessons effectively. I now know how to streamline everything from lesson prep to admin. I wish someone had taught me all this years ago – it would have helped me avoid making a lot of costly mistakes. I can’t wait to share all I have learned to help you on your way."
Louisa Walsh

Eligibility 

It’s open to all with an interest in online English teaching - and it will be of special interest if you are keen to set up as an independent teacher.  Ideally you will already be TESOL qualified and familiar with some online communication platforms (Zoom, Skype, MS Teams) to get the most out of your sessions together. 

Course duration

This short course can easily be completed across a week, or you can take longer to allow for some time to practice what you have learned in between sessions. You have up to 60 days to complete it. You will book your live Zoom training dates and times direct with Louisa.

What do I need to take part?

* A PC/laptop/iPad/tablet/phone with a webcam and microphone, and the ability to screen share.
* Headphones are preferred but not essential.
* You will need some basic Zoom/Skype competency, such as the ability to join the session, enable your camera/sound etc. Our short pre-sessional course is essential before the live class and will help you here, but it is your responsibility to be ready technically for the live session.

A TEFL certificate is recommended for this course.

What about any tech problems on the day?

This is a great for anyone thinking about starting a business or even those who have a business already and need some help. Louisa is incredibly knowledgeable and was very willing to tell me about her own experiences. I would recommend this to anyone interested in setting up a TESOL business.

Amazing course… I would definitely recommend it to all those educators who seek to start online teaching or would like to convert more new students. I started converting new students immediately after the course completion!’
