A Community Where Online Teachers Learn to Build a Successful Business on Their Own Terms

Grow your business with proven strategies and personal feedback

How long have you been stuck in 1:1 lessons, unpredictable income and crazy hours? Several months? Maybe several years?

You bought the books, read the blog posts and attended the webinars. You tweaked your website a couple of times, spent hours on Facebook and even tried advertising. But nothing seems to work.

You’re tired of working around the clock and still not earning enough, but you don’t know how to change that.

I know that feeling.

I’m Elena Mutonono,

 

and I help burned out online teachers move beyond 1:1 Skype lessons to create a smarter system where you can teach your clients on your own terms.

After years of hard work, my business hit a rock and wasn’t moving forward. Only once I joined a mentoring program and began learning from those who knew more than me things changed for the better.

That’s why I have created the Smart Teacher’s Library – a place where online teachers and coaches can grow into business owners, interact with each other and get guidance from people who’ve done it before.

Since launching it in 2017, my community has helped hundreds of online coaches find their niche, create new programs and build a sustainable business on their own terms.

Whether you’re just starting out and want to skip the hustle of 1:1 Skype lessons or you’re exhausted by endless classes and want to build a more sustainable business, this community will help you grow, learn, promote your work and implement the lessons right away.

What is Smart Teacher’s Library?

The Smart Teacher’s Library is a combination of mini tutorials, in-depth online courses and a support group that allows you to learn at your own pace but also get valuable feedback and guidance from your peers and mentors.

Find valuable materials about any aspect of running an online teaching business within minutes. Learn about the problems of others. Ask questions and share your own struggles with a supportive community where everybody is cheering for everybody. 

Join monthly group coaching sessions and go through the materials at your own pace — everyone who joins our community gets life-time access to all the benefits.

  • Community + Feedback
  • Actionable Resources
  • Accountability and Practical Strategies

Here’s What’s Inside

Access to 50+ Training Videos, Audios, Workbooks, E-books, and Templates

How to choose your niche? What lead magnet to use? How to kick off email marketing?

Stop wasting your time looking for answers all over the internet. Now, you can find them within minutes selecting from  50+ training video and audio lessons, and dozens of workbooks and templates created specifically for online teachers.

Among other things, you’ll learn:

  • How to find your niche and define your ideal client
  • What makes effective social media marketing
  • How to set up email marketing campaigns

New Challenge Every Month

Every month, we focus on a specific topic — not just in theory, but we actually make things happen. You can choose to participate in the monthly challenge and complete it alongside others.

In the upcoming months, we are going to focus on the following topics:

  • July: bring your own questions (pre-recorded Q&A).
  • August: run events to bring new clients.
  • September: write contagious content (get feedback on your writing).
  • October: plan your 2023 with us.
  • November: run a sale.
  • December: reflect on your year.

Unlimited Personal Feedback

Feeling alone with your problems? Aren’t comfortable sharing your struggles with others because you feel like you’re the only one failing?

Spoiler alert: Many online teachers are struggling with the same things you do. And that imposter syndrome you have? It’s just a part of the process.

Take a sneak peek behind the businesses of your peers, ask questions and share your own struggles with dozens of compassionate and supportive online teachers without being judged.

In our engaged community, everyone is cheering for everyone, and you can always count on us if you need help promoting your program, getting on a podcast or participating in a group sale.

I can get constructive feedback on what I’m doing
without being judged.

For me, the chats are the best part. I often need to see what other people think before I take action, so having a group of people to talk to without judgement has been really helpful.

… and There Is More

AS A MEMBER, YOU’LL GET INSTANT ACCESS TO THESE PERKS:

Digital Mini-journals

Because in our community, we believe in self-care, slowing down, and living intentionally, all members also get access to a collection of printable PDF reflection mini-journals. The reflection topics include creativity, minimalism, and resilience.

Members-only Newsletter

At the beginning of each month, you will receive a members-only newsletter. In it, you will find announcements about:

  • the challenge of the month
  • a few curated resources
  • an invitation to an occasional book club
  • other members’ perks like discounts, invitations to special events, and insider updates.

Stay in the loop and be the first one to know what’s going on in our community and the online teaching world as such.

Behind-the-scenes Reports

Another thing we value in our community is transparency. That’s why as a Library insider, you’ll get access to monthly reports — an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Elena’s business, including the exact numbers, strategies, wins, failures, lessons learned, and plans for the future.

Follow along in real time and see how the reality of running an online business looks like on the inside. 

+ Coaching and Access to 5 courses.

AS A MEMBER, YOU’LL GET 1 COACHING SESSION A MONTH + 4 QUARTERLY Q&As:

Group Coaching Sessions:

Meet your peers and mentors face-to-face to dive deeper into a topic, ask for advice when you’re stuck or run your ideas by them before making an important decision.

The groups consist of 12-15 participants, and there’s always enough time for everyone to ask questions and share ideas.

Our schedule for the rest of 2022: July 18 (pre-recorded Q&A), August 22, September 19, October 17, November 21 and December 19 at 1 PM Central time US.

All sessions are recorded and will be accessible to you even if you aren’t able to join live.

Quarterly pre-recorded Q&As.

Do you have a specific question you want to find an answer to? Submit your questions for a quarterly Q&A and access them as video or audio files. Recordings are between 20 – 60 minutes, depending on the number of questions submitted, and they are insightful for the entire community because most teacher struggle with similar challenges.

You can submit your questions 4 times a year: January, April, July and October.

 

Dive deep into my online courses.

Short tutorials may not have an in-depth answer to your questions so every Library member has access to a growing bank of online courses on Instagram, pricing, planning promotions and creating a product. Every year you can enroll in a new online course and programs on how to teach without 1:1 classes.

I’ve learned so much from others
and now set my own rules.

Joining the Library made me realize how I wanted to teach, why I wanted to teach this way and what I needed to do to make it happen.

I also gave permission to myself to be a leader and set my own rules instead of relying on generic wants and needs. I didn’t believe I could actually do that before I joined this community.

I learned about the money mindset, the impostor syndrome, and your voice in writing. And once what I was struggling with got a name, I was able to face and manage it better.

I realized I’m not alone. Talking about common struggles, I’ve learned so much from others that I think I couldn’t have done it without the Library at this stage of my business.

Why not just keep googling?

Sure, you can google your questions, search for reliable materials all over the internet, or join a Facebook group. But there is no other place so focused on helping online teachers build their businesses like Smart Teacher’s Library that has it all:

  • Save time looking for materials and use proven content and strategies created for online teachers by online teachers.
  • Get actionable advice you can implement on the spot without having to pay for expensive courses.
  • Receive personal feedback from your peers and mentors without having to pay for expensive personal coaching.
  • Stop feeling isolated and alone with your struggles. Get support and advice without judgement.

Next enrollment opens in September 2022.

Your investment is $1,500 (payment plans available). Get on the waiting list for an early-bird discount and more.

We’d like all our new members to join at the same time so that we can bring them up to speed all at once, and they can join our usual activities faster. That’s why the enrollment is open only two times a year for a short period of time.

Want to look inside? Get on the waiting list and we’ll send you the most recent catalog as well as a sample of Library materials (audio and video tutorials and a printable journal).

Does this sound familiar?

“I’ve never invested in my business before”

For many of our community members, joining the Smart Teacher’s Library was also their first-time investment. Doing something for the first time is scary, especially if it’s about money. And you’re probably thinking that you first need to earn enough from your business to invest in it.

But if you’ve read that far, you want to find a better way to teach online, don’t you? Now, it’s up to you: To keep doing the same things you’ve been doing before and expecting a different result, or to join Smart Teacher’s Library for a small investment and start transforming your business today, like hundreds of our members have done before you.

Another encouragement is before you make the investment, take the time to browse through the free resources on the blog, listen to the OnlineBound podcast or sign up for the newsletter!

 

“I don’t have time”

Making time for things that matter is the first step towards building a business. It’s a long-haul journey, and we believe being a part of our community will help you regularly set aside some time, even if it’s only 30 minutes a day.

The Smart Teacher’s Library allows you to learn at your own pace and keep working on your business at the same time, applying what you’ve learned and transforming your business.

 

“I’m afraid of endless recurring payments”

Joining the Library is an investment. Unlike other membership sites or paid communities, you are not going to pay recurring payments forever. You can pay once or in installments, and once you’ve paid, you will continue having support through the private forum, monthly coaching sessions, quarterly Q&As, new tutorials, workshops and online courses — for life (or as long as you need)!

Enrollment opens twice a year: in February and September.

“I don’t have enough skills”

That’s ok. You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t need to have it all together. You don’t need to “first learn just a biiit more” to join. Are you an online teacher or coach who is tired of the unpredictability and hustle and who wants to earn a stable income while working less? Then you are ready to join the Smart Teacher’s Library.

 

I stopped feeling like an imposter and got a lot of actionable ideas.

I was not sure if I’d feel comfortable sharing anything with my colleagues, because I felt so behind everyone else. But reading about other people’s experiences made me realize that everyone went through the same things, and I stopped feeling like an impostor.

I realized that I can be myself and do what I am capable of, notwithstanding my reservations and fears.

I also have got many actionable ideas that I would have never had if I weren’t part of this community or didn’t watch the videos or complete the worksheets. I put some of them into practice while creating my products.
