But at no fault of your own…
Up until now, the world hasn’t been prepared
for you to stand up and chase the big things you want

And because of that, there are a few unwelcome thoughts that
language enthusiasts face when establishing themself as a teacher online

(and so if you’ve ever thought this, you are very, very normal)

01.

The belief that you cannot be a good teacher 

Listen, a pilot can study books as much as they want, but they won’t become a licensed pilot until they actually begin *flying* planes. And that’s the big setback with so many other certificate programmes - they only teach, without ever giving you protected “flying” time. This doesn’t prepare teachers correctly, because learning and doing are two different ball games. So while gaining knowledge on correct lesson structure, language analysis, and student learning tendencies are a big part of it - the implementing, getting the right feedback, and implementing again is how you become a better teacher. And without having this specific structure in your routine, it’s no wonder that so many teachers don’t feel confident in their practice. But when you’re able to incorporate this in - you’re guaranteed to become a better teacher very quickly. 

02.

The belief that you don’t have a good knowledge of grammar

Here’s a comforting stat for you - 99% of native speakers aren’t actually taught grammar knowledge - so no need to ever feel behind on the subject. The truth is, to be a good language teacher, you don’t need to have encyclopedia knowledge, instead, you just need to be able to learn “as you go” (rather than needing to learn anything upfront.) Because as you prepare a lesson, you are able to research it, learn it, and then teach it.

03.

The belief that you cannot be a good business owner

Shying away from this weakness is what puts so many people in the low-paying trap of thinking they need to be the cheapest option online in order to get paying students. But when you can understand that running your solo tutoring business is a LEARNED marketing skill that you can sharpen today and over time - it makes your high-paying & in-demand services not only possible, but continually and consistently booked out. All on your schedule and at your price. 

04.

The belief that you don’t have the time

Often this is just an incognito fear of failure. Yes, dreams take watering. Yes, dreams take commitment... But time will pass regardless, and we believe that your time should be spent on something that excites you, supports you, and makes you feel wholesome. Because in the end, stepping into work that lights you up is a gift that will give you MORE time when it’s all said and done.

And whether you’re here from sheer coincidence during a pivotal moment in your career or because you have a flickering aspiration for a little more in your life -

We’re willing to bet that if you turn the volume down on self-doubt…
You’re someone who knows their passions, gifts, and goals are worth pursuing

Because at the end of the day, you also know that a shift is happening in the world today.

A shift AWAY from formal education where you go into school debt
A shift AWAY from going to a lifeless job that doesn’t light you up
A shift AWAY from wasting so much time commuting to work
A shift AWAY from retiring and not knowing what’s next
And most importantly, a shift INTO the online space where you can work from anywhere, at any age, and love what you do.

Week Eight

Adapting to Learner Needs

You’ll learn the highly effective skills of how to adapt your lesson on the fly, in scenarios when your student asks something that’s outside your lesson plan (this is a tangible skill you will LEARN, because unlike teaching in groups where you can fend off questions and continue with your presentation, 1:1 sessions mean you need to temporarily halt all plans and answer incoming questions accordingly.) In addition, you’ll gain the know-how to design your own materials for your 1:1 lessons.

You’ll work at becoming more confident with the teaching skills you’ve learned so far, while starting to look at new possibilities and opportunities that match your personal teaching style and interests. You’ll also dabble in teaching through the power of music and video to add variety to your lessons and meet the interests of different students.

We’ll conclude with an informal wrap-up meeting that’s focused on celebrating YOU and cheering on your huge accomplishments throughout your first ten weeks!

Here’s how we know you’ll succeed inside Pillar One:

  • Your focused weekly “feedback” sessions are in small groups (~5 people), giving you maximum attention for teaching practice feedback and assisted lesson planning (in-person University class sizes OR online programmes with zero feedback just don’t compare!)

  • Scheduled lessons with real students (at different learning levels) are provided for you, so that you can practice your newly-curated skills
  • In-depth feedback is given on every single lesson you run with your student, so you are never guessing, wondering, or at a stand-still
  • You’ll meet a community of other new teachers who are going through the same life experiences - ideal for development and support

Dates and Logistics

Here are the specific scheduling details, so you know exactly what to expect:

Part 1

Teaching Component - (10 weeks)

For Part One, you’ll have commitments on three days a week:

  • Tuesdays
  • Thursdays
  • Saturdays

If you’re in Europe, live group sessions will be in the evening, after work. If you’re in the US or Canada, live sessions will be in the morning (west coast) or afternoon (east coast).

Please check these times carefully to see if they will work for you. If you live in other time zones, please do the necessary calculations to check if it can work for you.

You will need to attend a minimum number of group sessions in order to pass the course, but recordings will be available where this is not possible!

The sessions are designed to be maximally flexible, so that you can make them work around a full-time job, and there is a combination of self-study that you do at home, live group sessions, teaching practice, and feedback with your course tutor. There are also special assignments which you complete on your own time.

Investment

If you’ve read this far, you will have seen the immense value provided by the certification.

Our aim is for CeOLT to have real-world practical value in excess of a university degree, in that you receive world-class training in a fraction of the time and cost, and are equipped with knowledge and skills not to get a job, but to build a business of your own, using your skills that create opportunities that formal education can rarely offer.

The course has been designed to be studied part-time, meaning there is no need to take time off work, and you can learn from your home, with little or no extra expenses.

The investment for this certification, including both pillars 1 and 2, full tuition, materials, assessment and certification is US $5,000. However, early-bird members will receive a substantial discount of $500, bringing the investment for this cohort to only US $4,500. When you apply early, we also have a range of payment plans available, to spread the cost.

You will also receive a beautiful welcome gift and certificate upon graduation.

Who This Programme 
Is For?
Who This Programme is for?

Let’s be crystal clear, because this certification is for a very specific person. For that person, it can help them change their life (like any good certification or training should).

First and foremost, you have a deep interest in languages and people. If you are simply looking for a job, this is not for you.

If you enjoy using your skills to help others and do good for the world, then this may be your calling.

If you enjoy using your skills to help others and do good for the world, then this may be your calling.

  • You may be a recent graduate looking for a rewarding career...
  • Perhaps you are mid-career and looking to do something more meaningful while topping up your bank balance…
  • Or perhaps you are approaching retirement and looking for a way to stay active, social, and earning income in your free time.

You don’t need any previous teaching experience at all, as this is a comprehensive certification that trains you to be a confident teacher from scratch, and not simply just how to facilitate sessions with your students.


If you see yourself in any of this, we invite you to fill out the application so we can begin to make this official for you!

About Olly Richards & StoryLearning Co.

Hello - Olly here. I’ve been teaching languages to hundreds of thousands of language enthusiasts over the last two decades - and I’m thrilled you’ve found your way to this certification page for CeOLT.

It’s knowing that others have found the courage to harness their passion for languages to help others, switch careers, adopt new lifestyles, and create change for themselves.

Why choose CeOLT when there are other “big name” certifications out there?

Language teaching qualifications have been around for years. In fact, it’s a big industry. But those certifications are stuck in the past, designed for the era where you get qualified, move abroad, and take a job in a local language school.

But that type of structure creates so many gaps and unrealistic assumptions about what people need today.

Because the majority of us are not teaching in person. We’re teaching online!

And for some of those “big-name” certifications who are trying to stay relevant - it often just means edited content and bandaged lessons, making their material hard to follow and making it difficult for those enrolled to find streamlined success.

And the final straw on this old conventional language teaching certificate approach, is that you’re left on your own to find work after you finish. 

For all those reasons - that’s exactly WHY CeOLT exists.

This certification is the first of its kind…

CeOLT, the proven certification from StoryLearning, is designed for today’s way of knowledge consumption - a world where millions of people across the world are learning languages online.

This small-group and high-touch language teacher training programme was created entirely for the modern world, which includes not just the skills you need to teach languages effectively, but you’ll gain the business components and in-depth live feedback you need to establish and grow your online tutoring business. Never thought of yourself as a business owner? This is your permission slip to think bigger about your potential!

Our proprietary StoryLearning method - directly from Olly Richards and StoryLearning, one of the world’s foremost language teaching companies, provides you with a new, fresh skill set. It opens doors to a new approach to teaching. It equips you with the understanding and ability to find & attract those looking to learn languages to hire you. It gives you the tools, resources, and confidence to build your own language tutoring business from the ground up.

We’ll show you how to develop your own independent online language tutoring business, so that you can earn a full-time, part-time, or any-time living… working from home + beyond.

Who is this for? 

>>> This programme is for individuals who are interested in pursuing their passion for languages by teaching what they already know to others. You may be a university student wanting to break the chains of a “typical” career. You may be retired and looking for change, excitement, or additional income. You may be someone in the vast middle who knows they want scheduling freedom and location independence as a staple in their day... Regardless of your story and background - you know you want more in your life.

You don’t need any prior experience in teaching or in foreign languages - just your native language and a desire to impact others around the world.

When do classes start?  

>>> [Date!] And prior to getting started, we’ll hold some meet-and-greet calls, where you’ll meet the other instructors and your fellow teachers!

3

What if I can’t make 
them live? 

>>> All our calls will be recorded, so you’ll be able to catch up with no problem. We just ask that you can make at least 75% of the live calls - as much of the heavy learning and advancement happen LIVE with our instructors and your fellow students.

Do I need to know grammar? 

>>> Nope! We have designed this programme for the student with zero grammar knowledge in mind. So if you have some - great. If you don’t - perfect, we’ve made the course for you. The components of this programme are set up to train you how to teach grammar in the broader sense. That means we teach you HOW to go discover the grammar information you need, and then how to teach it in an effective way.

I’ve been burned with other certifications before. Why would this be different? 

>>> Many people we know have felt this way, and that’s one of the core reasons that CeOLT exists. Personally, I was also burned by a certification when I was just getting going - while the training was okay, I never knew how to effectively put that certification to good use. I didn’t know how to find work, how to grow my customer base, or how to market myself. And this is what makes CeOLT different from anything else out there - our entire “Pillar Two” provides a full business component - teaching you everything from setting up your online tutor business, to finding high-paying students, taking payment, marketing your services, and becoming booked as often as you’d like.

Why can’t I just figure this out on my own? 

>>> The opportunity here is to be trained at StoryLearning, which means not only do you have the professionalism and confidence from being formally trained by a top name in the language industry, but it also guarantees that your students are going to benefit a lot more not only today, but in the long run. The ripple effect is that students stay longer, they refer their friends, and you can charge much higher…

Furthermore, with the way the world has advanced - teaching online requires a totally new set of practical skills. We have slashed the learning curve through a combination of our Storyleaning process and our combined decades of success (and noteworthy mistakes!), so you can reach your goals faster, with more financial and freedom gain than ever going at it alone.

I want to do this, but I have a full-time job and am already stretched thin. How much time will this take? 

>>> I hear you. The thought of adding one more “to-do” doesn’t feel good for anyone. But here’s the thing... Learning the skill of online language teaching + building a profitable freelance business that frees you up from that never-ending time crunch does take some dedicated time of roughly 12 hours per week.

And so, if this goal and lifestyle improvement is important to you - I invite you to find the pockets of time to block off and commit to this goal. And on our end, we promise to make everything as streamlined and valuable as possible to provide you with an exponential payoff.

The course has been designed to be studied part-time, meaning there is no need to take time off work, and you can learn from your home, with no extra expenses (just a laptop, wifi, and your appetite for a new kind of happiness!)

Become a qualified, certified, and confident teacher for your future students, working on your own terms, and loving what you do.

If you’ve made it this far down the page, you might be quietly asking yourself,

“Is CeOLT really going to help me leverage my passion for
languages, teach me exactly what I need, and give me the tools to confidently build a career as a skilled online teacher?”

And if the decision to join still isn’t greeted with an encouraging “absolutely!” quite yet - that’s perfectly normal.

Because going after big dreams and personal passions isn’t always the most obvious or glaring thing to do. And as an adult, it’s often something that we are used to not doing altogether.

But I’m a big believer in the fact that because you want it, is reason enough.

And when we wrap up things together at the end of your cohort - that whole, “I’m not sure if I can do this” hesitation will be a thing of the four-month past.

Please know that behind the certification, the programme structure, the additional tutors, the live teaching components, the implementation, the business component, and all the feedback…

Behind it all - we are real people that want to help you get the most out of life.

We’re just like you - we have a passion for languages, for teaching, for lifestyle freedom, and for doing work that excites us while impacting others.

So as you read through this information page, feel comforted knowing that our biggest goal is to develop you into a confident and successful online teacher. We’ve laid out the exact steps to make it happen - so if you have the desire and the vision - we have the tools, support, and resources to make it happen. This is our promise to you.

And unlike a practical university degree where you learn theory and are unleashed into the wild world to find jobs… here, you’re equipped with the skills to build a business of your own, for a long, intentional time.


Yours in living life by your design,
