Business Cards for English Teachers

Finding TEFL Jobs

ICAL TEFLIf you are thinking of visiting a school in person to find work or maybe looking out for a few private lessons to supplement your income, it’s well worth getting a few business cards printed up for yourself.

These days it costs very little (or even nothing) to have cards printed online and they’re delivered almost anywhere in the world.

The card can look something like the facsimile on this page. It includes:

  • Your name and perhaps a picture
  • Your title: English Teacher or perhaps Private English Lessons
  • Your qualifications
  • Your contact details

On this final point you might want to consider here using your email address only; these cards could end up anywhere so it’s perhaps better that you don’t include your telephone number to avoid phone calls in the middle of lessons or the middle of the night!
