Personal Requirements

Before anything else, the most important thing you will need is proficiency in using the English language. You also need to be an excellent communicator as this is the bread and butter of being a teacher. As you will be teaching children of varying ages and grade levels, being able to effectively communicate with them is a must.

Prospective applicants must also be 20 years old or older with a bachelor’s degree or higher. Take note that regardless of your course or degree program in college, you are still eligible to apply as long as you’ve already graduated. If you have English teaching certificates such as TESOL/TEFL, then that is very helpful because it makes your application process quicker.

If you don’t have the aforementioned teaching certificates, don’t be discouraged because you can still apply to Acadsoc! Part of our application process is a TESOL certification program that will not only qualify you but also make you a better English online tutor. This is thanks to our partnership with Ascentis, the UK’s official foreign teacher certification agency.

Device and Teaching Set Up

You probably already know that working for us means working flexibly from home. To do that properly, you are going to need a PC or laptop with the following specs: At least Windows 7 for your computer’s operating system, Intel Core i3 for its CPU, and 4Gb ram. You will also need a stable DSL/ Broadband/ Fiber internet connection with 3 Mbps download and 2 Mbps upload, noise-canceling headphones, a microphone, and an HD webcam. All these are required to ensure peak teaching performance. If you don’t have the specified internet connection, Acadsoc can help you secure one at an affordable price thanks to our partnerships with several internet providers in the Philippines.

For your teaching set-up, we are requiring a quiet, relatively clutter-free, and well-lit space in your home. You are going to be spending all of your time teaching in that space, so having a quiet and well-lit space will help you teach more effectively and minimize distractions. Since you will be teaching Chinese students, adjusting to their time is also required. Teaching hours are 6-10pm during weekdays and 10am-10 pm (UTC/GMT +8) on weekends.

As long as you meet the minimum requirements, don’t hesitate to apply to Acadsoc because you will be very much welcome to join our organization.

Application Process

If you are done preparing the necessary requirements outlined above, you’re ready to begin the application process!

 Apply Online

Start by applying online through our website. Clicking the ‘apply now’ link on the upper right will bring you to a registration page. Register your primary email and cellphone number. After successfully registering, you will receive an email or message that will schedule you for a pair of online interviews.

Go Through Online Interviews

The first scheduled interview will be conducted by an artificial intelligence (AI) program. In this interview, you will be asked about your strengths, weaknesses, and your level of patience with regards to handling students. Answer these honestly and confidently to help you pass. However, if you feel that you don’t like how you answered the AI, you have the option of retaking the interview.

If you successfully pass the initial interview, you will be scheduled for another one. This will be conducted by an Acadsoc administrator through Skype and he or she will further ask you about your teaching methods, experience, expectations, and more. Do not be surprised if you are scheduled for a group interview or a conference call because this makes the application process more time-efficient. Rest assured that each of you will be interviewed properly and in-depth. Expect this second interview to be longer than the first one.

Get Hands-on Training from an Acadsoc Instructor

After passing the interview portion of the application process, you will receive personal training from an Acadsoc instructor. Teaching Chinese students in an online setting is not an experience most people have, which is why you need to be prepared for the many challenges you are going to face on the job.

The instructor will be briefing you on how the usual classes will go, and other important aspects of teaching English online. Listen and follow his or her instructions because that can make your teaching experience smoother. This would also be the best time to ask questions and raise concerns, so please do so if you have any.

Do a Demo Class

Once you are done with training, a demo class will ensure that you are finally ready to teach! This can be done through Classin, Acadsoc’s self-invented tool A-classroom or Skype, so have these applications ready. You will teach a student for this demo class. Try your best and teach him or her well.

If you are the nervous type, don’t worry because this part of the process will help you get used to the teaching experience. On top of that, you will be given a sample teaching module to work with, so you will not have to worry about making a lesson plan. Remember all the things you were taught during your training and you will surely be successful.

TESOL Certification Program

As mentioned above, if you lack an English teaching certification, you will be required to take a TESOL certification program. If you already have an English teaching certificate, then you can skip this step and go directly into teaching classes.

A teaching certification is crucial because it will ensure that you are competent enough to teach English at a high-level as well as help us enforce an internationally recognized English teaching standard. Most certification programs will take around 4 weeks, but if you are diligent enough to spend many hours in a week on it, then you can finish the program under the average time.

Acadsoc offers free TESOL program. Once you get your TESOL certificate, you are fully qualified to teach for Acadsoc!
