I want to revolutionise the online language teaching world and create a platform where teachers receive fair pay.

by Faye in Epsom, , United Kingdom

I have been an English teacher for 11 years and I've worked in lots of different places teaching children and adults. Unfortunately in recent years , the language education sector has become nothing but a method to take as much money from people as possible and exploits teachers with unfair pay, particularly teachers who work online.  schools charge extortionate prices for students to obtain certificates of recognition to add to their CV's and to recognise their achievements, which is exactly what they need to apply for jobs, and the main reason most adults learn English or any language as a second language in the first place. 

I would love to build an online platform that connects students and teachers from around the globe. Teachers would receive fairer pay. Online companies  give teachers 0.17 a minute ,take 33% off their hourly rate or don't pay them at all for the first classes they teach. It would allow students to obtain certificates with live lessons paid at an hourly rate. All teachers would set their own rates so students would be able to choose their teachers and have their achievements recognised at a price they can actually afford. 

I have been speaking to software developers that specialise in developing teaching platforms about this idea, as it hasn't been done yet they said they would need to develop the software which would certify students and generate the certifications automatically on such a global scale. I honestly believe this would revolutionise the language teaching sector and allow teachers a much more livable wage for all the hard work they put in to make students' dreams possible.

Thank you,

Faye
