FAQ – Online English Teacher Home Based
What are the positions available?
We are always looking for highly-motivated home-based Business English Trainers to meet the rapid growth of our business. As for other non-teaching positions, they are generally offered to our trainers. This goes for all departments, including HR, Quality Control, Operations, Product Development, Recruitment, etc. So, it all starts from the trainer position.
Do I need to have any teaching experience?
Teaching experience is not required. Some of our best trainers started with very little or no teaching experience. Passion and a strong work ethic are far more important than teaching experience. Having said that, it certainly helps to have some teaching experience.
What are your Internet and workstation requirements?
We require a quiet, well-lit work space at home, free from any distractions that may undermine the quality of lessons delivered. We also require a plain white background, with no visible furniture or other paraphernalia that can be a source of distraction to the learner.
All our trainers use desktop or laptop PCs or Macs (no phones or tablets). These must be equipped with the latest full version of Skype for Desktop/classic Skype, NOT the pre-installed Skype for Windows 10.
We require a working webcam and headset with mic, preferably with noise cancellation if you are in a noisy environment. Earbuds are NOT allowed.
A WIRED Internet connection (DSL, Cable, or Fiber) with a minimum speed of 10Mbps download and 0.5 upload or higher is required prior to your application. Your PC or Mac must be physically attached to a DSL/LAN cable, not via Wi-Fi connection. Wireless, satellite, or cellular/LTE Internet will NOT be accepted.
Finally, all our teaching demos and training sessions must replicate the same overall quality that is required in real lessons. Thus, all interviews and mentoring sessions must be done at the place where you plan to work.
Can I apply for a DSL line after I get hired?
No. All applicants are required to have the proper Internet and workstation requirements before the interview. Unstable connection is one of our greatest concerns for this position and one of the main reasons that applicants do not pass our hiring process. Please show us that you meet this requirement right from the start.
What should I wear during the Interview?
Business attire. Please treat this interview as if you were having it in an actual office.
What should I teach on my Demo?
During the preparation stage, you will be given a sample lesson plan which you must study beforehand.
Please follow all the instructions given. Please note that failure to watch the videos, read the materials, and listen to the audio sample will lead to an automatic forfeiture of your interview.
Are lesson modules provided for?
Yes. Our trainers use Global Education’s original materials. So there’s no need to spend hours creating your own lesson plans. Nevertheless, you are free to explore and be creative to make your classes interesting for students, as long as it is in conjunction with the lesson module.
How do I contact the student?
Here at Global Education, we use Skype as the only means to contact our students so please be familiar with the main features of Skype.
How can I get regular bookings?
The objective is to “wow” your students. Once they are impressed, there’s a big possibility that they will become your regulars. Our students are people, regular people. Connect with them on a personal level, show them that you are here to help them, and teach them something of value, and they will certainly book you again.
Where can I get help during classes?
We employ real-time support for our trainers during class hours. Should you have any concerns during and about the lesson, our Admin Support team will be more than willing to help out.
Do you accept global application for the teaching position?
Yes, we hire Business English trainers from anywhere in the world, provided certain conditions are met.

When does a referral count?
A valid referral is when an active Trainer becomes instrumental in the hiring of an applicant. This means providing support to the applicant while still in the application process (e.g. informing them about technical and career qualifications, explaining the hiring process, giving interviewing tips, answering queries about income/SOPs). Therefore, by writing an active trainer’s name in the referral field, the applicant acknowledges assistance received from said trainer.
