For myself I have always taught in the traditional classroom, this was mainly in Japan and the UAE.

However for the past 3 years I have been teaching online with great success and I can recommend this medium to all English teachers.

The biggest advantages for myself are:

- You are your own boss, no middle man!
- No commuting!
- You can design the lesson as you like.

Just my opinion on the subject.

I am an online English tutor and I specialise in helping people with TOEFL.

For me I have to say I really prefer teaching online. I think it does depend on what kind of person you are though.

I used to teach at many language schools in Japan, and well, after spending many years commuting in horrific conditions, it's enough to make you prefer the online medium.

But, of course you do miss the social side of speaking to other teachers and having that community. But then again, not having a "boss" is definitely a good thing!

Hi, I teach English online. I have been a teacher in Japan for many years and I specialise in helping students with TOEIC.
