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: Lingoda pays $8-10 per hour for native English teachers. You will be teaching in groups that average five students at a time. All the materials are provided for you so all that you need to do is show up and teach. it looks like they had a rough start when you look at the reviews at Glassdoor, but keep in mind most of them are dated back to 2015.
Review: Training Express has merged with LearnLight. They are hiring native teachers that are living in Spain. You need to be from North America, the UK, or the European Union. Make sure you have a TEFL certificate and at least two years experience. The minimum age is 22 and you should either have a degree or have your second year of university.
Review: Learnlight school is looking for teachers who have a background in business English. You will be working with professionals throughout Europe so be professional and come prepared. You should be certified as well (i.e. TEFL, CELTA, TESOL, FLE, DAEFLE, DELE, ELE, DaF, DITALS, EPE). You also need to have at least two years of experience. The minimum hours are 10 a week of fixed availability during 06:00-9:00 / 12:00–15:00 / 17:00–20:00 / 22:00–01:00 (UTC/GMT). The pay (in Euros) is competitive at €10 for individuals and €12 for group classes and they ask that you commit to a one year contract.
Review: Inglesissimo accepts teachers of French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Chinese. Like many of the companies listed on this page, you should have a background in business English.
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: 1to1 Progress only hires a native speaker, certified in teaching a foreign language with a TEFL, Celta, or other recognized certification. Along with that, you have to be experienced in teaching adults online for at least one year. The last requirement is that you are bilingual in French, Spanish, Italian, German or Turkish. Do not apply unless you are bilingual.
Review: FluentBe teaches group lessons at a low rate of only $10 or so per hour. Not a good pay rate compared to many of the other companies. You will be teaching adults from Poland and need at least one year of teaching experience. Note: As of January 2018 a few teachers have let us know that they have a two-month backlog of new hires. We will keep you updated if this changes.
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: 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.
