How to Setup a Classroom for Teaching English Online While Traveling

By Nicola Rae

When I was a classroom teacher in the States, I spent way too much time (and about 30% of my annual salary) at IKEA. I loved organizing my classroom because I had so much stuff.

5 Reasons Why Teaching English Online is The Best

By Nicola Wynn

At the time I’m writing this, I’ve taught 951 classes of English online. What a joyful 951 classes it has been! As a child, I forced my sister to play school with me during the long hours of summer, writing the alphabet in rainbow chalk on our kid sized green chalkboard. After college, I taught middle school science for three years with a much bigger green chalkboard and equally colorful chalk. My mother was a teacher, and her mother was a teacher, and her mother was a teacher. So to say that I get joy from teaching English online should surprise no one.
