Online ESL Games

February 21, 2015DSC02166

It is important to have some online ESL games ready to play in case your students get bored, or you get bored or you just need to change the dynamic of class. They are also great for group classes. In group classes you can get your students to interact and use the language while you just monitor. These games can be played in face to face classes as well as online classes. Read more

What Does an Online English Teacher Teach?

December 19, 2014IMG_1602

A good teacher always has a plan. Many online teaching companies have lessons already prepared, you just need to assign them to your students. Other companies want you to prepare your own material. If you have private students they are probably going to want a plan (unless they just want conversation in which case your job is a lot easier).  So what plan do you have for your students? What plan do you have for the next lesson? Read more

 

 

 

Why Teach English Online?

November 20, 2014British Columbia, Canada

After teaching English for almost 5 years, I have made many friends that also teach English. However, I am the only one that teaches online. Many of them are happy with their jobs, working 20-30 hours per week and don’t want to teach online or they have private students on top of their regular job and don’t want to spend any more of their free time teaching. If you can find the right company one of the best things about teaching online is that you can do it between your classes. Right now I am only teaching online in the afternoon from 12-5pm. Of course the best thing about teaching online is the fact that you can work and travel. Read more

Updated: April 23, 2015IMG_0878

So, I have created a list of the top teaching English online companies with their websites. This list will be updated frequently, as I myself am an online teacher and I have an interest in knowing who are the best companies to work for. I know this list is not complete, but it is a good place to start for those looking for a job online. Please let me know if I have forgotten a company, also feel free to leave a comment especially if you have worked for any of these companies. The List

  1. Hello, I’d like to teach English online and your list of companies will help.

    Thanks, j

  2. Thanks for sharing the list , but which among these companies hire non-native English teachers?

  3. Hi, Mike! Thanks for all the work you have put in compiling this list and bravo on the excellent and informative website.

    I’m an online English teacher living in South West France. I got started working for EF Englishtown where I learned the ins and outs internet teaching. I left Englishtown when they were re-structuring; getting rid of lots of senior teachers and lowering the hourly rate of newbies (like I was at the time), in favor of hiring teachers who worked in call center-like offices in countries like South Africa and The Philippines.

    While I have been able to build up my own list of private online students since then, I did a stint for a few years with a French company — 1 to 1 English: http://1to1progress.com/fr/. You could add them to your list. At the time I worked with them, they were a start-up (circa. 2013). I gave telephone lessons to French business people. The company seems to have grown considerably, offering other languages and advancing from the phone to internet technology. I enjoyed working with them.

    All the best,

    Michèle

    1. Hello Michele 🙂

      I trust this response finds you well. I am currently an online English facilitator at EF Englishtown. I am working for an Outsourcing company in South Africa and I am looking to broaden my horizons. What steps can I take to secure an online English position for another company?

      My best regards,
      Shazia

  4. We are an American-Taiwanese owned ESL online school and we are looking for experienced TEFL/ESL native English speaking teachers.

    The pay is $380NTD (about $12USD) per 50-minute (one-on-one) class for conversational English and $450NTD (about $14USD) for IELTS/TOEFL per 50-minute class (one-on-one). We pay via Paypal once per month and teach via Skype.

    We are specifically looking for teachers to teach during Taiwan evening hours (same time zone as China — currently 12 hours ahead of NYC time).
