The Top 12 Teachers of 2021 on Off2Class

Off2Class is made for teachers and used by teachers.

From Thailand to Venezuela, over 80,000 ESL teachers use Off2Class in over 120 countries and counting. 

Fun Fact! Since 2015, over 6 million lessons have been launched via the Off2Class platform.

Teachers power our platform.  As we grow, we wanted to pay tribute to some of these amazing instructors, particularly the ones earning high praise from their ESL students!

Looking back at 2021 and based on feedback from thousands of ESL students using Off2Class, we identified 12 of the highest-rated teachers from our global community.

We asked these teachers to share their teaching philosophies so that we could share them with the rest of the Off2Class community. 

In no particular order…here are 12 of the highest-rated teachers of 2021!

Think of your ideal student, the one you would love to teach, and market to them alone.”

Deon Van Eeden, Online Teacher on Preply and Amazing Talker, South Africa.

Do you want to be one of this year’s highest-rated teachers on Off2Class?

One skill shared by all the Top 12 Teachers is that they collect feedback from their students. We often think about giving feedback – but asking for our students’ opinions is a key to retaining students in the long term. The ratings feature on Off2Class gives students the option to leave feedback, without any additional admin for the teachers. You can make sure the ratings feature is turned ON in your Teacher Settings Page.
