Review: Learnship has a high pay rate, but it is hard to get a job with them. You need to have an exceptional background in business English to get a job with them. You will be teaching to students based in Europe only. They have their own professional materials and platform for teaching business professionals. You must have native-level fluency in English along with native-level intonation, accent, and pronunciation. Make sure that you are certified with a foreign language teaching certification or university degree in a related field. It also helps if you have intermediate or higher level proficiency in German or French.
Review: Inlingua Ciudad Real has a high rate of pay from $30 – $50 per hour. We do not know about this company yet, so we are just posting what we know as of now. As with all of these schools, time will tell. One of the requirements to apply is that you are a native English speaker, have a degree or above, and have a TEFL/TESOL certificate. You are required to have at least 1-year teaching experience with pre-school children from three to six years old. You will be teaching group lessons of 20 – 25 kids for 25 minutes per class. If you are interested in this job, you can submit your resume together with your short video of self-introduction. When you apply, the video should be around 1 minute where you discuss your motivation and relevant background.
Review: Myngle is looking for teachers that can work with students that are business professionals. They have their own lesson materials and their own platform that you teach from. They also use WebEx as well for some of the lessons. They pay 15€ for one on one and 20€ for group lessons. Each lesson is 45 minutes long. Most of the students are European with some Japanese students as well. They also teach other languages as well in case you are bilingual. Do note that their application process can be rather confusing. If you are having issues I suggest that you contact them on their Skype accounts Myngleteacher and Mynglecorporate. You can also contact them through email [email protected]
Review: Woospeak only hires native English teachers and bilingual speakers. You should have a business background.You must be a college graduate with 3 to 5 years minimum experience.

Review: Educastream only hires native English speakers living in England with experience in teaching online or in person. They are a typical European company with a good reputation. They are focused on adults and companies so a background in Business English is helpful. There are courses available for children as well so it does not hurt to have a background in that area as well. You must have a quality headset and a wired high-speed Internet connection.
Review: EnglishOnlineTV teaches English, Russian, German, and French. All other lessons are performed on Skype so make sure that you have a Skype account and are familiar with how to use it. The latest version of Skype is rather horrific so you might want to install one version back. It looks like most of their students are adults focused on business English. The other assumption is that your students will be based in Europe. Lastly, from the appearance of their teacher list, it appears that they hire non-natives and those who are bilingual in English and Spanish. We do not have a lot of information about the school so if any of you are teaching them please leave a review.
