Where to Find Online Teaching Jobs from home

Online teaching jobs from home

The ultimate question is… Where to find online teaching jobs from home? Hundreds of thousands of teachers are making money from the comfort of their own homes. Teaching English online has never been easier. It seems that as each month passes, new online platforms keep springing up. This is creating more and more opportunities for online teachers. 

When looking for an online ESL job, be weary of some of the shady recruiters popping up in the Facebook groups. Most of them just want an easy commission. It’s best to look at each school individually and see what’s right for you. 

This is why I create job lists on eslwild.org

You can browse through the site and find loads of lists with different online companies hiring English teachers for online teaching from home. There are job listings for natives and non-natives and they include basic details as well as pay rates. Many of the Chinese companies have closed so you should always be cautious when looking into a Chinese school during this time.

Advice for new online teachers

A few things you should have before starting

  • TEFL to increase your chances of getting hired

  • A university degree is strongly recommended but not required by all companies
  • Lesson plan materials (although some are provided by the companies)

If you are having trouble creating lesson plans or if you need extra materials, don’t worry. Lesson plans, worksheets, games, grammar lessons, songs, activities, and everything can be found here.

This company is based in Japan and has a pretty cool concept. “Adventures” are zoom classes but completely different from traditional teaching. Instead of lessons, you interact with the kids without teaching, so they acquire English naturally.

They are making an effort in making classes more exciting for young learners by allowing them to have fun with people all over the world. Pay depends on how many attendees join but with a guaranteed amount per adventure too. This works out to pay around $10-20 per 10-minute adventure.

  1. Good work Sir!

    Most of the links opened and may I suggest to the naysayers who said that the links weren’t working; use a bit of initiative and email the companies directly with an intro letter and CV. (Duh Google the companies and visit their sites!)


    1. I was wondering because I double checked the links after that and they were working on my end. But I would definitely agree that emailing the company directly is a underrated move and more people need to know this.


  2. Hello..
    I just completed my TEFL and TESOL course, i don’t have a degree..

    1. There are loads of articles on here with jobs hiring and in the description it says which ones don’t require a degree. There are tons on here throughout the job list articles. 🙂
