With the new Chinese regulations on online tutoring, many online teachers have been left scrambling to find new online jobs. At the moment, it’s pretty risky to apply to another China-based company, so what are the alternatives? I’m going to give you a list of some online ESL companies not based in China. Some of the companies offer courses in more than just English, so there’s potential to teach multiple subjects if you have the qualifications.
To be transparent, I am letting you know here, that I am an affiliate for some of these companies. If you sign up using any of my affiliate links, I may receive a small commission directly from the company as a token of appreciation for referring a new teacher.
