Offering Online Teaching for Free, is it allowed?

Hi fellow iTalki,

I'm currently taking TESOL Certification Preparation course from Arizona State University and will take online certification soon. While the course is still ongoing, I'm planning to hold online class with TOEFL-based materials to add my teaching experience. Is it allowed to teach online FOR FREE VIA WHATSAPP, for a period of time? And is it possible to post my offer in Discussion page? I'm an English online tutor for iCampus Indonesia now and still looking for the opportunity to gain more experience in teaching online before ENROLLING TO BE A COMMUNITY TUTOR. :-)

Any answers are appreciated.

I suggest enrolling as a tutor now, then changing to a teacher profile once you get your certification. Why hold back? :)

Your proposal is very generous but it might give you in return some experience in this field. I would be glad to take part of the course but I am afraid I will be busier in a couple of weeks so I can not commit myself to take the classes.

Anyway, I think Whatsapp is by far, not the best way for teaching a language, in fact is not good for teaching anything.
