I hope the last three articles in this series have been of some value. I wanted to acquaint many who have the idea that English teaching is only for the professional educators with the realities … especially on line. Everyone who reads this blog already possesses a valuable commodity … their language skills. For some, it putting those skills to use may provide a real earning opportunity.
I’ll wrap things up with some resources that may be very useful. Thanks, and big tip of the blogs hat to Maeve Maddox at the “Daily Writing Tips” blog. When mentioning resources, Maeve and her writing tips should always be at the top of the list .. a recommended daily read for sure.

Sometimes readers write asking for basic English instruction that lies outside the scope of this site. This post is for them and for our readers who teach ESL.

The English Club has four companion sites:
