Hi! Welcome to teachenglishonline.com.au! 

My name is Kate and I am the founder and person behind the scenes of this site. 

I’ve been in the EFL/TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) industry since 2010; teaching English in South America for a few years, then running my own freelance IELTS and Academic English tutoring business in Australia.

In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, like so many others, I needed to suddenly move my business online and to look for part-time work to supplement my income when many of my students returned to their home countries. I found few resources for us Australasians.

This site was created so that you would have independent resources, a place to connect with others and to find transparent, up-to-date information. I’m here to help you navigate all areas of the rapidly growing world of online English teaching.

Good luck and happy teaching!
