Attention, Freedom Seekers!
Ready to work from anywhere - even home - and have the ability to earn money while you travel?
(When it's safe to travel again, of course)
The world is a crazy place right now.
Let's face it, times are tough for a lot of people thanks to Coronavirus.
Your hours have been cut and you're not sure if or when things will return to normal.
Even worse, you've been laid off from your job or you're worried it's going to happen any day.
You need to find a way to work remotely.
The worst part about all this uncertainty and chaos is that you still have bills to pay.
You need to pay your mortgage or rent, utilities, phone, and internet bills.
You still need to put food on the table and provide for your family.
There might even be extra medical bills.
Things can get overwhelming fast when you're not sure where your next paycheck is coming from.
It doesn't have to be all doom and gloom, though.
You have two options:
Freak out and wallow in your worry and overwhelm....
Take action! Learn a new skill so you can continue to pay your bills, provide for your family, and have confidence about the future.
Teaching English online is the way!
- are ready to have more control over your income,

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.
"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
Listen to Freddi talk about his journey in the video:
I was hoping to travel the world before I got too old but was struggling to imagine long-term travel without a source of income...
"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 too 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!"

Wait, who are you?
Hi, I’m Rachel!
Sasha (my hubby) and I are the couple behind the popular travel blog, Grateful Gypsies!
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 experienced destination concerts and music festivals with our favorite bands (our passion in life) in Costa Rica and Tulum, Mexico....
All thanks to teaching English online!
But it wasn't always like this.
We were once in your shoes.
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.
Our conversation on the last day of that vacation went something like this:
“I don’t want to leave. Why do we have to leave?”
“Because we have jobs and a nice apartment in Beijing.”
“What if we didn’t have those things?”
And that's where the idea was born.
We wanted to become digital nomads before it was even a thing.
Maybe you've had this very conversation before!
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 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!
Teaching English online changed everything!
Seeing Bolivia for the first time. Truly breathtaking!
Visiting Machu Picchu was the culmination of 7 months in South America. It was glorious!
The best part is that you can teach from anywhere - including home!
Teaching English online has opened the flood gates and given us the confidence to now take on other online work!
"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, Music Producer, The Vibe and the Dive
Check out this interview with Jake to learn how Teaching For Freedom helped him reach his goals of location independence....
I'm excited to say, I now have a job that I can take on the road with me to fund my travels while I build up an online business.
"Thank you Rachel for introducing me to Vipkid and the online English teaching world! I never thought I would ever love teaching young children, but it is so much fun! Your course was amazing because all my questions were answered right there, and it gave me the tools to get hired and jump right in without too much stress. I'm also excited to say, I now have a job that I can take on the road with me to fund my travels while I build up an online business. Thank you so much for making my "teaching career" fast, stress free, and more profitable!! Here I come world!! Thank you!"

"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
Before I took Rachel’s class I had been considering teaching English online so that I could continue traveling, but having no classroom experience left me feeling unqualified.
"Before I took Rachel’s class I had been considering teaching English online so that I could continue traveling, but having no classroom experience left me feeling unqualified.
After picking Rachel’s brain I decided that taking the course would help me in the process that I knew nothing about. The course easily lays out the step by step process you’ll take when applying to VIPKid. It answered so many of my questions and gave so much information to help me along the way.
I was hired, passed my demo, mock classes and began teaching. Rachel’s advice on profile pictures, video and bio was really helpful as well. The course doesn’t just end with you getting hired. She was always there when I had a question and she was kind enough to help me tweak my bio.
Within days of opening my schedule I had bookings. Now I’m about 3.5 months into it and I’m working every day. I love it! What makes it even better is that whenever I have a random question I know I can ask Rachel. She’s there for you way after the course has finished. That’s pretty invaluable."

Let's Talk Numbers
What can you do with the money you earn teaching English Online?
You can treat this as a side hustle, a part-time job, or even a full-time gig if you really want.
To give you an idea of what your schedule could look like and your potential earnings, here are a few examples.
I'll use VIPKID, since that's our primary online teaching job, our current time zone (US Central time), and an average starting pay rate of $8/class.
Say you're already pretty busy and you can only dedicate 2 hours to teaching online, three times a week. Perhaps you work 6-8 AM on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before your "real" job.
That's 45-50 classes depending on the month, which qualifies you for $1/class bonus that VIPKID offers. You also get an extra $1 for each class that's finished as scheduled, bumping your pay to $10/class.
That earns you $450-$500 a month by just working six hours a week!
You can still make it to your day job in time, start building up a stable of regular students, and earn some decent extra cash in the process.
What can you do with an extra $500 per month?
- Buy tickets for a weekend-long music festival
- Book a round-trip flight to someplace exotic (because you know how to find sweet deals!)
- Upgrade your travel gear by getting a new backpack, e-reader, camera, etc.
Sounds pretty awesome, right?!
Maybe you're more like us and you want to use teaching English online as a part-time job.
This is perfect if you are working on another passion project.
Our passion projects are freelance writing and building up our own website. We typically teach anywhere from 15-20 hours a week.
Our schedule is usually 6:00 - 9:00 AM Monday-Friday with an extra shift on either Friday night or Saturday morning.
Remember, one of the best things about teaching online is flexibility to change your schedule.
You can earn $1500 - $2000 with this schedule!
That amount of money goes a long way in places like South America or Southeast Asia.
We've been living comfortably in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and have also traveled extensively around Latin America using teaching English online as our primary source of income.
Perhaps you're not quite ready to hit the road yet, and that's fine!
Just ponder what that money can get you in your future travels...
- A month-long stay in a private villa with a pool in Bali
- Round-trip flights to the other side of the world
- Getting scuba certified and spending a week diving in Thailand
- Traveling to Peru to hike to Machu Picchu
Best of all, once you're finally ready to take the show on the road, you'll already have a loyal following of students who will keep your schedule full and allow you to smoothly transition into digital nomad life!
I am so thankful I took this course which has now led me to a position with an online teaching platform!

I highly recommend this course to anyone who’s looking to take up an online teaching job and travel at the same time."

How does forever sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. This is a living course that we will continue to update and you'll be notified when we add something new.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
That's the last thing we want! We totally understand that this isn't an investment to be taken lightly. We want you to be able to try it risk-free. If you don't like it, then just e-mail us within 30 days of purchase and we'll give you all your money back.

What if I don’t have much time to spend on it right now?
I imagine you have a bit more time on your hands these days thanks to stupid Coronavirus but in case you don't, you're busy and I totally get that! That's why you get immediate access and fully self-paced so it'll be there when you're ready for it.
Will it be a good fit for me?
If you are ready to take action, start working online, and make that lifestyle change you've always wanted, then yes. But if you're not an action taker and you'd rather stick with the status quo, then no.
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 + our amazing community of online teachers. 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 it for you to stop worrying about how you're going to make money right now?
How much would it be worth it 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!
