Avoid the Stress, Time, & Expense of Trying to Do It All On Your Own

When most people try to start an online business, they try to do it all on their own. They worry that they shouldn’t be spending money on the training and tools they would actually need to be successful.

They end up…

  • Wasting Days, Weeks, Years
  • Throwing Away Loads of Money Making Mistakes That Could Have Been Avoided
  • Feeling Overwhelmed and Discouraged
  • Failing Within the First Year or Two Feeling Lost & Disheartened

Now imagine…

  • Making consistent, exciting steps towards your goals
  • Knowing exactly what to do next
  • Having others to talk to who are working through the same challenges
  • Saving loads of money on expensive tools

If any of this strikes a chord with you, then I created the Independent Teachers Membership for you.

It is time to find your independence and create the life you want.

Why Would You Want to Listen to Me?

Great question. Although, since you’re here, you’ve likely already gotten to know me a bit and know that my goal is, and always will be, to be there for you.

I’m good at what I do. I’ve started three successful businesses myself related to education—including both brick & mortar and online businesses—as well as helped many others build their own successful businesses.

There are a lot of people out there who make promises about helping you build your business. Unfortunately, not many of them actually care. I do. I care about whether you’re successful or not. I care about the impact you can make in the world. I am here for you.

“I am not sure where to start, because I have so many wonderful things to say about John and about what he has created here, but perhaps I will start at the beginning.

As a passionate and dedicated online teacher, I became frustrated with all of the rules, regulations and inadequacies of working for a big company. I couldn’t really connect with the students and their families and I was unable to build lasting relationships with them. I was unable to teach the material that I believed the student needed desperately and I was unable to address the real issues that the student was struggling with. I had to follow the lesson I was given and that was that!

I started thinking… perhaps I should teach as an independent teacher.. but how would I do that? There were so many daunting aspects to this idea, where would I even start?

Joining the Independent Teachers Membership was the best thing that I ever did! Not only is his curriculum extremely well laid out and perfectly planned for every stage of the learning process, but it even offers an assessment so that I am able to identify the areas that each student needs to work on. At first I thought, “Oh no… how do I conduct an assessment?” Immediately my mind was put to ease as I discovered that John had a comprehensive series of videos to explain exactly what I needed to do.

Starting out, I was nervous and unsure of what to do, but there has NEVER been a time where John hasn’t been able to help me, where he hasn’t offered me constant guidance and support. His kind and gentle manner come through in everything that he does, from the amazing videos that he has recorded, to the emails that he sends to confirm my ideas and settle my worries.

John has helped me to develop and grow my teaching skills, how I interact with parents and the quality of what I produce. I would highly recommend John and the Independent Teachers Membership. I am creating the most amazing online teaching business and there is no way that I could have done it without him!”

— Kirsty Miller, Online ESL Teacher


How much time does it take to start my own online teaching business?

At first, I would encourage you to start easy and focus on building good routines. There are tools in the membership to help you schedule your time. You can spend as little as an hour a week, no more than a show on Netflix, and if you stick with it, over time, you will have made much more progress than you would have thought possible. You just have to keep putting one foot in front of another. You have to stop talking about doing it and do it.

What kind of teaching business can I create with the membership?

Many teachers in the membership come from an online ESL teaching background, but you can start any kind of online teaching business you’d like with the training and tools in the Independent Teachers Membership. One of the first steps inside the membership is deciding exactly who you will be teaching and what you’ll be teaching them. Most teachers start with an idea that is far too broad, like teaching English to kids, and need to spend some time pinning down a more specific audience.

Am I locked in to using only the tools in the membership?

No, you aren’t. This is your business. I’ve provided incredible tools inside the membership including your own website, payment processing, scheduling, and more to help you get up and running quickly and easily, but you can pick and choose from any of the resources in the membership depending on your needs.

Are there any additional fees for payment processing with the websites included in the membership?

There are no additional fees from the websites included with the Independent Teachers Membership. You will only incur the fees of the payment processors themselves that you choose to connect. Stripe, one of the most popular payment processing options in the world, generally charges 2.9% + 30¢. PayPal charges 3.49% + 49¢ for your local currency but 1.5% more for international currencies along with a flat fee that varies by country.

What if I sign up and realize it isn’t a good fit?

Every teacher is different and every set of circumstances is unique. I get that. That is why I offer a 14-day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. If you sign up and realize that it isn’t for you, you can cancel anytime in the first 14 days and I will give you a full refund. That is a big risk on my part, but I don’t want anything getting in the way of you working towards your dreams.

Will the membership help me find clients/students?

Yes! In fact, the first stage of the membership and an entire course involves building an audience of raving fans who are biting at the bit to sign up for your classes or programs! Building an audience takes time though because building trust takes time. That’s why I recommend starting with this first as it’s an ongoing process as you continue building your business.

Does the membership show me how to create a curriculum or program?

Sure does! You’ll get lots of practical tips, worksheets, and a planner to help you design your stellar curriculum or program. The membership also includes access to the Kid-Inspired ESL Curriculum Membership if you’d like to use the materials in the curriculum to tutor K-12 English learners. Creating your own program though is a big part of creating something remarkable for your specific audience and I’ll help you work through the steps of creating a program yourself.

Can I cancel anytime?

Canceling is easy and you can do so anytime. Simply go to your account page in the membership area and click on the Update Billing button. 

100% Money Back Guarantee for 14-Days

Purchase With Confidence…It’s Risk Free!

If for any reason, you don’t absolutely love all the time you save using the ESL Curriculum Membership, you can get a full refund anytime within the first 14 days after your initial purchase. If you have any issues, I’m here for you. I want you to have the absolute best possible experience. I started the Kid-Inspired Classroom to make a difference in teachers’ lives and, if I don’t succeed in that, I don’t want your money.
