Episode 119 Is teaching on Preply, italki or other platforms worth it?

Posted on

Listen to it on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

In this day and age, learning languages is easier than ever. There are tons of free resources online, user-friendly apps that encourage students to be consistent, and online platforms that connect students and teachers from across the globe. These platforms are a great solution for teachers who find marketing themselves overwhelming. However, they are not free of flaws.

In episode 119 of the Get Richer, Teacher podcast, I discuss:

  • the hidden costs of teaching on these platforms
  • the illusion of safety and control
  • the potential timeframe for transitioning to independence

If you’re considering joining these platforms or, alternatively, leaving them, this episode is for you. 

And if you want to learn more about building your independent business and get updates on the podcast, make sure you join the ‘Get richer teacher’ community here.


Hey, I’m Ola!

For the last 2 years I have been helping language teachers like you build online brands, connect with their perfect students and make more money. I used to be a teacher, a teacher trainer and even ran my own language school in the past, but I am now focused on coaching teachers full-time (and I love it!) So far I have helped over 400 language educators from all over the world and my mission is to see the world where teachers thrive, enjoy the hell out of life and their job and have a great impact on their students lives (without burnout or selling their souls).
