Review: Cena Academy as of now, they only hire native English teachers from the US. You need to have a PC and the lessons are taught over Skype. They prefer that you have a Bachelor or Master’s Degree, TESOL/TESL or Teaching Credential and prior experience teaching English. The pay is decent at $9 per 25 minutes and $18 for 50 minutes. They pay you through PayPal.
