Teaching for Freedom

How to Earn a Legit Income Teaching English Online

  Enroll in Course

Attention, Freedom Seekers!

Learn how you can travel & live abroad while financially supporting yourself by teaching English online.

It's 9:00 am on Monday, the start of yet another long work week. You try to stay focused but you can't help but daydream about being somewhere else. You could be sitting on a beach in Bali. You could be hiking in Patagonia. You could be sitting in a cafe in Italy, sipping the most delicious cappuccino.

Anywhere but at your job.

Your two weeks of annual vacation always seem to disappear to family holidays, weddings, and reunions. You can't travel to the other side of the world when you only have a few days to enjoy it. By the time you're recovered from the jet lag, it's time to leave again.

Wouldn't it be nice to do all that and travel to new destinations? If you continue to work in a full-time job, you'll miss out on a lot of travel experiences.

You can keep kicking the can down the road but you may never make it to the end of that road. How long do you even have until you can retire? 20, 30, 40 years? Do you really think you'll want to party in the streets of Brazil for Carnaval when you're 70? Will your body be able to handle, much less enjoy a 5-day hike on the Inca Trail?

Those are the options you face if you wait until retirement to travel. Don't you wish there was a way to start making a decent income online where you can set your own schedule and be able to travel?

Teaching English online is the way.

If you:

  • are tired of living your life on someone else's schedule,
  • are tired of working for the weekend,
  • want to travel more often and for longer periods of time and you're sick of having to ask someone for permission to do that,
  • need a way to pay the bills while building your lifestyle business,
  • really want to be able to work when and where you want and for how long you want,
  • think you'd be great at teaching English online,

then you're about to read the letter you've been searching for. Here's why......

The energy at Machu Picchu is incredible

From Full-Time Job to Full-Time Travel

A few years ago, we were living in Beijing in a nice apartment, with cushy jobs teaching English in a corporate training center, and a high quality of life. But there was something missing.

We got to travel but it was never for long enough. Our schedules were somewhat flexible but taking extra time off required getting another teacher to cover our shifts which was always stressful and never guaranteed.

The first time we went to Bali, we, like everyone else, fell in love and didn't want to leave. However, we had to get back to work.

That feeling lingered and a year later we quit our cushy teaching jobs, gave up our nice apartment, and hit the road with just our backpacks. For 14 months we traveled to dream destinations and stayed for as long as we wanted. That sense of freedom is addictive. We went to Bali a second time and got to stay longer and even explore other islands of Indonesia.

But we eventually ran out of money. So we headed back to China, this time to Kunming, and found new teaching jobs. We thought we would be okay with settling down again but we weren't.

It wasn't long before we were planning our next trip but with the added stress of asking a boss for time off.

We knew there had to be a better way to stay on the road so we put our heads down and got to work finding a solution.

That's when I found the world of online English teaching. I applied and got the job!

The third time we went to Bali, we got to live there for several months and it was an incredible experience!

Since 2016, we've traveled to countless places in Mexico and set up a temporary base in beautiful Puerto Vallarta.

We spent 7 months backpacking in South America, enjoying bucket list experiences such as beach lounging with sea lions in the Galapagos Islands, trekking to breathtaking views in Patagonia, and staring at our reflection in the flooded Salt Flats of Bolivia.

We've been able to experience destination concerts and music festivals with our favorite bands (our passion in life) in places like Costa Rica and Tulum, Mexico.

With the help of this course, you can have this lifestyle too.

This Course is the Fast Track to Location Independence

I want you to try something. Close your eyes. Imagine your life with more free time. Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you do it with? If it seems scary, it doesn't have to be. We've got your back.

We've coached several people through the process to achieve the same lifestyle.

Even if you don't know anything about teaching, even if you're not a native English speaker, and even if you don't have a Bachelor's degree, you can teaching English online!

We show you how in the course.

Our friend Adam had the same problem as us.

He was traveling around and loving the freedom of not having a job to return to, but he ran out of money. He went home to the States to figure something out. That's when he contacted us.

Adam didn't know anything about teaching online and wasn't sure, like you may be, about if he could do it. He wondered if he had what it took to teach, and we showed him by answering all his questions, giving him tips on how to ace his demo and mock classes, and easing all his fears of traveling full-time.

Here's his story:

"I was at a point in my life where I was looking for more freedom, flexibility, and convenience. I was hoping to travel the world before I got to old but was struggling to imagine long-term travel without a source of income or something to occupy me for a few hours a day. Lucky for me, I was introduced to Rachel - she opened my eyes to new opportunities to integrate work and life through TEFL!

Seriously, without hesitation, she made time and continues to make time to hop on a video call and give me advice, guidance, and her personal wisdom about TEFL. I even saved $150 on my comprehensive TEFL certification thanks to her! Within a matter of 3 months, I had my TEFL certification, was interviewing with top reviewed online TEFL platforms. Today, I'm couchsurfing through Europe and teaching for a few hours day and to be honest, absolutely loving this balance of teaching, earning, and exploration.

To top it off, when I was wondering about global health insurance, I thought of Rachel and again, she came through with experience and advice!

Thanks Rachel! Best of luck continuing to live your dream and thank you for supporting mine!"

"I recently decided to make a big move south of the border from San Diego, CA. I did not know what I was going to do when I arrived in Mexico, but knew it was for me. That was, until I was connected with Rachel and her husband at Teaching for Freedom!

She helped me through the entire process of becoming a ESL teacher online to Chinese students on the other side of the world. Having only minimal background in teaching (let's be clear, I was a nanny/babysitter for 10 years and simply tutored kids on their homework) she helped me understand the application process and everything that went into teaching young students how to speak English.

I had no idea what to expect, but I was quickly accepted to my program and before I knew it, sitting in front of a computer screen with a 5 year old Chinese boy on the other end looking to me for English teaching!

The entire concept was so foreign to me when I began, but through Rachel's guidance I was able to feel comfortable through my first class. And now, I have the ability to work 2-4 hours a day, first thing in the morning and use the rest of my free time for whatever I want! I have been able to get back into surfing and art, two things that fell by the wayside during my busy hustle and bustle lifestyle in America.

The freedom, pun intended, I have been so lucky to experience with this new endeavor in my life is unbelievable. And the best part is, as long as I have a steady internet connection I can do my job from anywhere in the entire world!

Teaching for Freedom has been one of the best things to happen to me and I can not urge people enough to join the online teaching platform and live a life they have always wanted!"

- Taylor O'Doherty

"I just finished your course and I wanted to extend my gratitude for the invaluable information and insight that you shared.. It has definitely made the idea of teaching English online much less intimidating and I feel that I now have some real action items that I can begin working on immediately! I appreciate all of the hard work you put into your videos!"

- Jake Bartosch

"I recently completed Rachel’s course ‘Teaching for Freedom.’ The course got me from zero knowledge of teaching English and the online teaching world, to helping me prepare and find a company that suited me. Now, I am working for DaDa and I am able to teach English no matter where I am. And that is perfect for me, as I am not a fan of staying in one place for too long. There’s too many amazing places out in the world to see! Thank you Rachel!!!"

- Fred Saleeba, Founder, Curious Emu Podcast

Can't I find this information for free online?
You can find just about anything for free online. You could search for information about the online teaching jobs but it would take you HOURS to sift through all the information to figure out if these jobs are legit, which ones are flexible enough for traveling (there are lots out there that are not), and which ones teachers truly enjoying doing. Some companies treat their teachers poorly. You won't find them in this course. I've already done the leg work and made myself an expert. I've taken what I learned and packaged all that information for you in one place, saving you tons of time. But do you want to know what truly makes this course one of a kind? Our strategies to maximize your earnings and make a travel lifestyle work as an online teacher. You can't find that information anywhere online.
This course would be a big investment for me. Is it really worth the price?
How much would it be worth to you to take a trip to your dream destination at the drop of a hat simply because you found an amazing flight deal? How much would it be worth it for you to devote more time to the things you're passionate about without feeling guilty? How much would it be worth it to finally start building that lifestyle business you've always wanted? The key word here is "investment." I'm certain you'll recover the cost of the course after your first full week as an online teacher, at which point you'll be well on your way to having that FREEDOM!
