Review: This company focuses on more than just language lessons so if you have other skills that you want to teach, then simply add them to your profile. The company is based in the US and in order to work for them, you must be legally able to work in the US. You can live in another country as well but you will need a US bank account for payments. The rates that teachers charge are from $15 for 30 minutes up to $60 an hour. They are a well-run company with a great support staff and technical support team. There is a long review by one of our FB members that is worth reading.
Review: This platform started out providing group lessons and has now moved to one on one lessons. They have teachers for many different languages.
Review: This company teaches more than just English. Most of their students are Japanese. If you want to look for students who are Japanese adults then Cafetalk is a good platform to try out. A good thing about this platform is you can create as many different courses that you want. With these courses, you have the option of being able to have a paid trial lesson so that the students can become familiar with you and your technique. The nice thing about CafeTalk is that the majority of the students are Japanese adults. They tend to take learning more seriously and are typically taking lessons for work-related reasons. This is a great platform for those of you who like to teach business lessons to adults.
Review: This company is similar to Cambly where you are able to wait for calls from students that are online. You pick up these calls on at a moments notice and talk about the subject they have chosen. There is no need to prepare for the lesson and no report to write up after it as well. You do not need a degree but you should have a TEFL, CELTA, TESOL or another type of certification. You can teach from any location around the world and in terms of bandwidth requirements, they will test that during the interview. Their app runs in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. There is no minimum amount of hours required per month and they hire non-natives.
Review: This company from China has quickly become the top place for English learners to find an online English teacher. The good thing is there are a lot of students. The negative is that there are also a lot of teachers on the platform. Make sure that you create a profile that stands out from the rest, a video that focuses on how you can help the student, and a specific type of English that you are focused on. Do not just teach general English lessons or you will be competing on price only for the most part.
Review: This is a large company from the US that has a variety of various subjects being taught. They focus on matching up students with local tutors but also work with online teachers. It is very reliable and well worth creating an account.
Review: This company focuses on language exchange, but they also have a system in place that allows students to buy credits to use with teachers. They also state “Chat with native speakers (for free), check their reputation and their rates for private videocalls”. You might need to build a reputation with students before they purchase lessons.
Review: This company also teaches through an app that the student and teacher use. They are still developing their website so for now, send your resume to [email protected] if you want to get started since they do not have an online application.
Review: This company has an excellent system for teaching multiple subjects. The more you tutor the better your reputation so that you can draw in more students. It is easy to signup with a facebook account.
Review: This company pays $10.20 per hour for video lesson and $8.40 USD per hour for a voice lesson. Payments are made through PayPal. They provide multiple languages.

Review: This company has been around for awhile. They teach many different types of languages. The average rate charged for a 45 minutes lesson is $22 USD.
Review: This create-a-profile job does not require you to have any prior teaching experience. All payments are made through PayPal seven days after each lesson. The schedule is highly flexible which makes it a good choice for those of you that are traveling a lot. We do not know of any teachers in any of our groups that are actually working with this company since it seems to be relatively new.
Review: This company from France has a solid platform with decent rates. They only hire native English teachers for online lessons.
Review: This is a newer company from France that has a highly professional website along with a good methodology. They also conduct lessons over the phone as well.
Review: Cambly has over hired at the moment so if you apply you might find it difficult to get approved and find students. This company delivers an on-demand system for students to speak with native English speakers whenever they want. This is a great place to rack up hours and talk with many students. There are mixed reviews when it comes to Cambly since there are times when there are a lot of students available and times where it is hard to find enough students.
Review: You can see that they have many teachers teaching all different languages here. They do not seem to be focused on English s their top priority and they do allow non-natives to teach English. They have a well put together website and the teacher profiles look great for the teachers that spend the time to fill in all their information, create a good video, add quality photos, and fill out their background properly.
The students at this Vietnamese based school are mostly children, and a lot of them are pre-intermediate level students. This company is very hands-off with the teachers. You should provide your own lessons. The teacher is shouldering the teaching, format, and the curriculum. They have 24/7 class availability. All classes are taught through Skype. The pay rate ranges from $9-$12. It is not that great but it’s good if you are a beginner in online teaching. They are highly active on their Facebook page with posts on a weekly basis.
Review: This is another create your own profile school. They are based out of Australia and have an international student base consisting of both adults and children. If you are multilingual this might be a good job for you since you also have the ability to teach other languages.
Review: This company offers both online and offline teaching with different languages to teach. You can teach any language you wish, just make sure that must reach in a native speaker level. Teaching certifications are not necessary, but you must have teaching experience to qualify for this job.
Review: You must have at least one year ESL teaching experience to apply for this job. The pay is quite low that ranging from $2-$3 per 50 minutes. They have group class, and all lesson is taught through Skype.
Review: Preply is an online educational platform that connects tutors with students either in person or by Skype. It has an easy to use interface and a good quality platform. It is extremely easy to get setup and start teaching.
Review: This company out of Germany has an app that you use to teach with. They used to have a set rate but now they moved to where you set your own rate. You can teach multiple languages with their app.
Review: This school does not appear to be a viable platform. If anyone is working for them we would love to get your feedback. This company is focused on Chinese students of all ages. Create a profile, teach and get paid through PayPal or wire transfer.
Review: They only accept native English teachers so do not set up your profile if you are a non-native online English teacher. The lessons are in 25-minute blocks with the process based on their own coin-based system. It looks like you can probably earn about $8 maximum per lesson when the fees and everything else is sorted out.
Review: This company based in New Zealand teaches multiple subjects to a wide range of students.
Review: This is a company from Russia that charges you a fee to join teach on their platform. They encourage teachers to give free trial lessons as well which can be abused by students so be careful. Lastly, you have to deal with the transaction between you and the student to get paid.
