Review: Tutoring 360 is similar to Cambly, but is focused on students from Korea. By the way, they have changed their website a few times. The current one is Tutoringgo.com. Just in case you are a little confused! You either need to have a degree or be currently enrolled towards your degree. There is no requirement for having a TEFL or other certification but you need to have previous English teaching experience. Similar to Cambly, students call you if you are online and on standby status. You also have the ability to message students to ask them if they want to have lessons. The main thing to remember with sites like this is that you need a professional profile and introduction video so that you stand out from the rest.

Review: Engliphone mainly hires native English teachers from the US or Canada with a neutral accent. You need to be on a PC to run their application. The peak hours are 6am~11am / 6pm~12pm Korean time with some classes being audio only while others are audio and video. You have a guaranteed rate of $13.50 per hour for your shift. What that means is if you have a four-hour shift then you are guaranteed $54 even if all the students do not show up. One year of teaching experience (online or classroom) teaching preferred. Engliphone is currently expanding at the moment so this is a job that you should apply to if you are qualified.
Review: Boktutors teaches more than just English, but English is their main focus. Email them with your resume [email protected] add them on Skype boktutors. They pay $13-18 per hour and they only hire native English teachers.
Review: Classo is looking for teachers from the US, Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand. Basically, they want native English speakers but they do state that they will make exceptions for non-native speaking applicants with a high level of proficiency and teaching experience. Payments are paid through direct deposit bank accounts.
Review: Talk Bean is based out of South Korea and will only hire native English teachers. You will be teaching students in Japan, Korea, and China. You should hold a TESOL, TEFL, CELTA, DELTA, or other qualified ESL teaching certification. If you are on a MAC you are out of luck since they only hire teachers on Windows. The minimum number of hours is 20 per week with the peak hours being Monday – Friday @ 18 – 24 (6PM – 12AM) in Korean time. It is best if you can keep a fixed schedule at the same hours each day.
Review: Carrot Global is from South Korea and they have a few different websites and various services for South Koreans learning English online. A TESOL/TEFL certificate is NOT a requirement to work for us although it is a plus. They do state that they want North American accents, but when they are on a hiring spree they will take native speakers with neutral accents.
Review: Mentorphone has been around for a few years, and from the information we collected they look like a stable company. One main issue that we did see is the lesson feedback that you have to give after each class. The problem is you are not paid for the time it takes to write the feedback. This can be problematic given that most lessons are only 10 minutes long. Except for that, there is a lot of positive feedback about the company and the support that you get as a teacher. The pay is decent at C$18 per hour. If you are in the US or Canada this would be a great job for those of you looking to work from 5 to 10 PM Toronto time. They also have morning hours as well. You need to have a neutral North American accent and they have a preference for native English speakers with ESL teaching experience. Furthermore, you need to have a four-year degree and a teaching certificate such as a TEFL, TESOL, or CELTA. They state that you need to have a hardwired connection but what we are finding is that most companies these days are fine with Wi-Fi. They simply forget to update the requirements.
