Getting online teaching jobs can be tough at first, so below I list some of the schools hiring online English teachers (and how much they pay).
*This is the third blog in a series of five, to read the previous blog click here.

Remember that we also mentioned that you can teach freelance online by creating a profile with a platform that connects teachers with students. While some of the above teaching apps provide this service, below are some PC/Laptop based providers of this freelancer service. You set your own teaching hours and rates so there are no average salaries listed.
Freelance online teaching job platforms:
- Café Talk
- Verbal Planet
As you can see from the lists, you are likely to get paid more teaching English online if you have a degree. Therefore, if you don’t have one then expect to get paid a little less in the beginning. You can always work your way up in one company to a higher pay grade and use that to apply to other schools, even those who require a degree, as everyone values online teaching experience above all else. In fact, it’s quite normal for online teachers in this industry to work for several schools at one time to cover all the hours they require and to provide the salary that they need.
There are some big names missing from this list as well, like VIPKid. I left them out on purpose because they are very exclusive in their recruitment process.
I could give you application links to each of these schools but https://oetjobs.com has a massive database and a very intuitive search tool that I find is the best on the market. So go ahead and click on their link above to do your own research and check out those other 270+ schools hiring teachers out there.
Note: Our online teacher training includes resources and support to help you prepare for and find online teaching jobs. It’s one of the major perks of doing your TEFL training with us. Many years of experience have shown us that teachers who get the tools and support they need are far more likely to succeed as online English teachers, and over less time.
