Taking off with TEFL: Niche success in teaching English, with Russ Pearce
Jun 24, 2022 Season 1 Episode 11
Maya Middlemiss, Xolo OƜ

Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is an attractive route to freelancing - and an easy option for anyone who was lucky enough to be born a native speaker of the global tongue for business and communications.  

But making a decent hourly rate is challenging, with a proliferation of platforms and marketplaces, and varied levels of qualification and experience required.

Today we talk to a solopreneur who has not only made a career success of specialised English teaching, he has created a great lifestyle as well, and travelled the world. Combining unique niche industry knowledge with a commitment to professional development, Russ Pearce is proof that TEFL can truly take you places, in every sense. 

What could you do, to leverage native linguistic advantage, alongside personal career experience and subject matter expertise? The sky's the limit (especially if, like Russ, you're an aviation specialist.). He even has time to write a great travel blog too - www.anythingbutpaella.com - as he explores the lesser known parts of his chosen home in Spain.
