12 Non-Chinese teaching companies hiring online teachers now
Welcome back to ESLwild.org all of you awesome teachers or soon-to-be teachers out there! (Non-Chinese teaching companies)
We’ve got a list for you again to browse through to help you find an online teaching job. This time we’ve compiled 12 Non-Chinese teaching companies that are hiring online teachers now.
Teaching English Online after the Chinese shutdowns
While quarantined, we saw the ultimate rise of online English teaching as soon as covid smacked us like the plague. After a few sweet, sweet years of riding the gravy train of online teaching, China decided to drop a bombshell on the online English teachers by cutting online English teaching platforms quicker than you can say Xi Jinping.
The market is starting to look more volatile than crypto. It’s up/down, hot/cold with new companies trying to swarm in like little parasites with payments so low that they are teetering on the board of slave labor.
But don’t worry, my friends. Just like the one thing left in Pandora’s box, there is still hope!
You just have to weed your way through all the scammers in the Facebook groups and the psychos in the money schemes and eventually you’ll run into something half decent.
Why You Should Start Online Teaching?
In all honesty, this is the absolute best job for traveling millennials who want to live a life of adventure with a half-decent income. Teaching English online gives you the freedom to work wherever you please and if you don’t mind compromising on schedule time, you are set to go.
Not only can you teach in your pajamas or while you’re sitting back sipping a hot tea, but you can also engage yourself in other cultures all from the comfort of where ever the hell you are.
Even though teaching online is super chill and really flexible, I would still suggest you go teach abroad somewhere that you’ve never been if you haven’t already. Endless memories and opportunities will arise like never before.
“How in the hell could somebody enjoy being awakened at 8:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?”
