Teaching English Online TEFL Certification Course
The 80-hour TEOC course combines the 60-Hour TEFL Fundamentals course with our custom-designed module for teaching English online. By completing this course you earn TWO certificates!
Our 80-hour TEOC course has everything a teacher needs to understand how a successful EFL classroom works and takes you several steps beyond that with the Teaching English Online Certification (TEOC) module.
Our Teach English Online program has been developed in cooperation with an experienced online English program and has advantages for a broad range of individuals including:
- Existing EFL teachers who would like to supplement their income
- Teachers who like to travel and want to take their students with them
- Expatriates living overseas who want to increase their income
- New teachers who are just starting out and are not ready to head overseas... yet. This is a great way to learn about teaching before you decide to go abroad.
We'll walk you through the different options used to teach English online. From working completely independently, to using third-party platforms that will help market and connect you with students to working for an online school that will manage everything for you. We'll let you know the pros and cons of each option.
Obviously teaching English online is different from standing in front of a classroom of 20-40 students or more and we'll show you how to modify classroom teaching to teaching online.
We'll cover technical issues, how to best present yourself to win students and even some adapted teaching methods to help you be effective and win the confidence of your students.
We'll help you understand what frustrates online students most and what you can do to overcome those issues.
There are many new issues, but we break it down to the critical components and get them to you quickly, simply and easily. Learning to do it right the first time will get you ready to teach faster than you might think.
There is an open book examination and assigned topic lesson plan due after the first section of the course. When you have completed the final section there is a required lesson plan project required that is adapted to teaching English online methods.

After completing your work, you will receive a Teaching English Online certification and an 80-hour TEFL certification. Two certificates (two hard copies) will be mailed to you by USA First Class mail. Check with us if you live in a country where mail is unreliable.

We can't guarantee you a job with them, you have to present yourself well (of course!), but they will know you took your course with TEFL Educator and give you fair and friendly consideration for work with them. They know you have been trained with good online teaching methods.
