Review: Ziktalk works off of a mobile app. They are looking for online ESL teachers to teach mainly Korean students. They hire native and non-native ESL teachers with a neutral accent. Having some sort of teaching certificate such as a TEFL is an advantage but not mandatory. Their system encourages teachers to upload educational videos in order to attract more students. This is similar to uploading educational videos to YouTube to bring in more views. All teachers are expected to rate and leave feedback for their online students. All payments are through Paypal or bank wire transfer.
