Finding Teaching Online Jobs

So you want to teach online. I usually recommend you consider building your own teaching business, but I realize that’s not for everyone.

  • Maybe don’t have a couple of weeks to build an online course.
  • Maybe you need a no-risk teaching opportunity.
  • Maybe this is a temporary side gig, and not a permanent goal?

Whatever your reasons, you want to

  • be a hired contractor,
  • be paid by the hour,
  • get started immediately,
  • Not deal with technology and setup

No worries, soloprenaut.com has you covered: Teaching online jobs are plentiful.

Here is the biggest list of available companies you’ll find anywhere online. Take your pick!

How much does teaching online pay?

That really depends on the company. Some online teaching jobs will pay better than others. Common rates are somewhere between USD 5 and USD 20 per hour. You won’t get rich, but on the other hand, your investment is minimal. You’ll be using a computer you have already, and you won’t need anything beyond that. Many companies will even give you instructional material to use, so your time invested will be limited to the actual lesson duration.

Additional Ways To Find Your Online Teaching Job

You will have noticed that most companies offer English training. There’s less demand for other subjects (consider creating online courses instead!), but if you want to, you can find an employer.

If the list above doesn’t contain a suitable teaching online job for you, consider checking out job boards. Online teaching jobs are frequently posted on boards such as:

Conclusion

If you want to teach online, you’ll find an employer. Whether the conditions work for you will also depend on your country of residence and your living costs. Before choosing your company, I recommend checking their reputation on Indeed or Glassdoor.

In addition to teaching online, consider packing your knowledge into online courses you can sell.
