The eTEFL Online Self-Study Mentorship Course
Hello and welcome back to part 2 of my blog series!
My name is Thapelo Ntlhabo and I am from South Africa.
I am in the process of building my TEFL career and I have been offered a temporary TEFL-related gig by www.eteflonline.com which I would like to share with you.
My assignment is to test drive their self-study Mentorship Program and then write (or report back) about it here in this space.

WEEK 2 – Session 2 – Resume and Intro Video
Step 1. Create a teaching email address = ✅
Step 2. Take two high-quality photos = ✅
Step 3. Create a Skype & Zoom accounts using your new email address (in 1.) = ✅
Step 4. Create the following accounts and link them to your bank account:
a) PayPal = ✅
b) Wise = ✅
Step 5. Write your resume (CV) – use the template provided as reference = Loading…….😁
Step 6. Write one video script targeting potential adult students on a public freelance platform and proceed to record the video = Loading……😁
And that is Session 2 in a nutshell!
I hope to wrap up steps 5 and 6 this week. It is just that I had a busy-ish weekend and could not complete them. For Session 2 the main point was the primacy of the Introduction Video. As our instructor (via video) put it: “. ..the Introduction Video is the gateway into students discovering who you are as a teacher and what you have to offer. ” Therefore it must be damn good. It must stand out. After going through Session 2, I must admit, I now feel I am ready to receive those US dollars!
Next week I will report back on Session 3, which is about preparing for that possible job interview.
