In this episode, Olly speaks with Wesley Swanson about becoming a successful online language teacher.

Wes decided he wanted to move to China, and was looking for ways to earn an income while he was there, which led him to Olly's Online Teaching Accelerator programme. He had no teaching background, but loved languages and was attracted by the idea of earning a living online doing something meaningful.

After completing the course, and taking it VERY seriously, Wes soon found himself booked solid, and had students telling him: "I chose you over the hundreds of other teachers I saw online!"

In this conversation you'll learn what it's like to help people learn English online, and some secrets for finding students who want to learn with you.
