 In Blog

This is the third blog in a series of five, to read the previous blog click here.

 

As I mentioned in the previous blog, there are over 300 online schools operating right now and most are actively recruiting.  Let’s have a look at some of the more popular schools, their requirements and how much they pay. Obviously, I can’t list all 300 schools here, but I’ll give you a quick overview.

Remember that we also mentioned that you can work freelance 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 service. You set your own hours and rates so there are no average salaries listed.

 

Freelance platforms

 

  1. Tutorme
  2. iTalki
  3. Verbling
  4. Café Talk
  5. Verbal Planet

 

As you can see from the lists, you are likely to get paid more 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 experience teaching English online above all else. In fact, it’s quite normal for 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 out there.
