42 Online Teachers Questions and Answers:

1 :: Can you explain me how you would motivate someone who was slow in the course?

If the teacher and the students are in separate locations, then this could be difficult. In person, it is certainly easier to zero in on the problem. Online, you will have to be persistent in your communications.Students may not often want to confront their obstacles in the course. Sometimes, just arranging for a telephone consultation could sort out the problem.

2 :: Tell us how do you engage students?

If you have experience doing this, you know that communication, emails, announcements, thought provoking questions, getting to know your students and making them feel important in class matters. If you are a new instructor, you will be engaging your students by doing these very same things and have learned from online professors you have taken courses from or have talked with colleagues about, right?

3 :: Tell us where do you see yourself in a few years?

Describe what other languages are you proficient in besides English. Maybe you have a foreign language minor or you’ve practiced another language in previous job or volunteering positions. If you aren’t proficient in another language, talk about how you know a couple of key phrases and what you’re going to do to learn more.

4 :: Tell me are you technology proficient?

Here you can discuss how you’ve used audio and visual aids in the past for job or school presentations and that you’ll use various visual aids in lectures.

5 :: Tell us if a student asked you what the difference between ‘bored’ and ‘boring’ is, how would you answer them?

This is more to test your teaching style than your knowledge of grammar, so you can first start by asking the student what they think the difference is, then give them some correct examples, then do an activity to help the students remember the difference. Try to avoid big grammar words. It’s better to use real life examples.

6 :: Explain me why do you enjoy teaching?

Talk about how great the feeling is when you see that your students have learned something new. Hopefully, that’s one of the reasons why you want to be an ESL teacher in the first place.

7 :: Can you tell us what makes you the best candidate for this position?

This is a loaded question! Of all your qualifications, state the ones that put you over the top. Although you need to maintain a professional demeanor throughout the interview, this question calls for your personal views on early childhood education and how you see yourself contributing to the program. When preparing for the interview, consider the following: Why did you choose the field of early childhood education? How dedicated are you to the young children you teach? How has the field affected your thinking, previous jobs, and life experiences? This is the last message you will share with interviewers, so be sure to give an answer that represents you as a unique individual.

8 :: Tell me what do your parents do for a living?

Don’t get offended by this question. It might be illegal in many countries, but it is often asked as an ESL interview question. If you don’t want to answer it honestly, then feel free to lie. Say that your parents are teachers and taught you lots about teaching or something.

9 :: Tell us how has your education supported your ESL teaching experience?

Here’s a good opportunity to discuss English classes you’ve taken, where you’ve learned grammar in depth, and foreign language classes you’ve taken, which helped you learn how to empathize with students learning a new language.

10 :: Tell us what would you identify as top-notch qualities to be a successful ESL teacher?

Talk about how it is essential that you should be passionate about teaching, empathetic to their students’ frustration, and dedicated to helping others learn, and for that, you need to be proactive, patient, and have a sense of understanding that far transcends others.
