Other Ways to Use Your TEFL Certification

  • Teach at home

    You don’t have to travel the world to make a world of difference. There’s plenty of work to be done in your own backyard. Refugees, immigrants and community members from non-english speaking homes are in need of people like you. If you’re a passionate member of your local community, and are looking to broaden your reach, this may be exactly what you’re looking for.
