Have a passion for teaching but also want the freedom and flexibility to work from home (or anywhere)? You are in the right place!
I’ve found these 5 companies that can allow you to work remotely, teach English online, and earn a great income.

Remote working is becoming even more popular because of the great benefits of it. When you think of teaching though, many people don’t think it is possible to teach from your computer and/or anywhere in the world you choose.
These companies make that possible.
If you don’t have a degree, don’t worry! Some of these companies don’t even require a degree.
As someone who loves working remotely and is very passionate about it, I was so happy and excited when I found out about these companies!

These opportunities can be wonderful and life-changing for the adventurous and/or freedom loving teachers (or aspiring teachers!) out there.
Check it out:
This one is really becoming popular. That’s probably because it’s such a great company! I personally know people who work with VIP Kid and they always say how much they love this job.
With VIP Kid you will work with Chinese students wanting to learn English. You make your own schedule, it is one on one learning, and you can earn $14-22 an hour!
You don’t even have to worry about creating lesson plans, communicating with parents, or grading as that is handled by VIP Kid.
For this opportunity, you do need a Bachelor’s degree (any field), eligibility to work in the USA or Canada, and 1 year of teaching/mentoring experience. If you fit these requirements, go ahead and apply or contact them for more information!
With Magic Ears, no Bachelor’s degree is necessary! This opens up opportunities for even more people.
They are looking for qualified native English speakers from USA/Canada. Classes are scheduled 25 mins + 5 mins student evaluation and you can earn $9-13 per class (or $18-26 an hour!).
The opportunities don’t even stop there, as there are chances for higher positions such as interviewers or trainers!
italki is actually a language learning app allowing for one on one lessons anywhere and anytime. This opportunity is open to people all over the world and you set your own rates.
This is an extremely flexible way to teach and unlike the first two, appears to be more adult-focused rather than child focused.
For this opportunity, no degree is required, but they are looking for some teaching experience and native English speakers. This is also a very flexible opportunity with no set schedules and allows you to meet people all over the world!
Get paid $11 an hour right to your Paypal account with this company.
Be an English conversation coach with Same Speak! No degree is required and you can start as young as 16 years of age. This would be an awesome opportunity for busy students looking for extra income.
You do need to be a native English speaker and you can earn $10 for every completed 30-minute session directly to your Paypal account.
So, as you can see, it is possible to teach English from your own home (or wherever you want in the world), make great money, and even without a degree!
There are many different ways as well, such as very formally through VIP Kid or Magic Ears, or informal/conversation style like through italki.
