    Default Online ESL teaching

    I am an experienced ESL / EFL teacher and I want to teach students from all over the world online via messenger or Skype.

    I would greatly appreciate it if someone could give me some advice about the best way to go about advertising for potential students. Are there any reputable teaching websites where I can advertise for free? Is there inexpensive software / training available for teaching lessons online?

    Many thanks

    There are a number of free links databases where you can post your site. Ours is here: ESL Web Directory
    You can find some others here: Web Guides - ESL Web Directory - UsingEnglish.com
    There's not much in the way of free advertising- most sites go for paid banners or text adverts.
    You should be able to use free software like Skype, a whiteboard that will cover most needs without buying anything.

    Here's the link: ESL Web Directory: Add a Link

    Select this category: Tutors - ESL Web Directory - UsingEnglish.com
    Keep the description short and factual about the site and please don't include contact details, etc in the description. I look in most days and rebuild the database so it should appear within a day. We check once a year or so to see if sites are still running.
