From New York to Thailand, ALO7 tutors can be found living all around the world. Having the ability to work from home, opens the door to becoming a digital nomad or relocating permanently to another city or country. One person who has made this bold move is Tim Evans. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Evans moved to Prague, Czech Republic, in 2016 to teach English at a local brick-and-mortar school. While he enjoyed teaching at the school, an unexpected school holiday prompted him to look for other ways to support himself in his new city. This job search led him to ALO7 and he has never looked back.
Watch this candid interview with Evans to learn more about his personal journey, why he loves teaching English online and what advice he has to offer to new tutors!
