Companies Hiring Online Teachers

FYI: I continually update this list when I find a new company hiring!

I did a post on Location Independence through Online English Instruction and how ESL teachers are working and traveling or working from home. I am an online teacher through VIPKID and have had a great experience so far. However in this brief post I would like to share the other online language teaching companies that are currently looking for teachers. I am constantly scouring and have found that this industry is rapidly growing-especially companies providing instruction to China. Here are the few I have come across in no particular order.

As a disclaimer, I’d like to say that I have searched some of these companies on and There are some good and bad reviews. I ultimately went with VIPKID based on all of the positive reviews from online teachers and because of their pay + bonus scale system (teachers earn between 16$-21$/hr); also, the curriculum and lessons are already planned for you. If you or anyone you know works for any of these companies I’d love to learn more.  Contact me.

Feel free to use my referral link for the application process. VIPKID. I receive a minor chunk of change every time I refer a new teacher (and you will too, if you get hired). The truth is, I really enjoy this job and if you follow the pointers above then you have a high likelihood of landing a job with VIPkid. Good luck!
