Do you want to find the perfect online English teaching role?

When I first began looking for an online English teaching job in early 2020, I was overwhelmed by information. Much of it was unreliable and not applicable for Australians or New Zealanders.

  • There are 450+ online English teaching companies and marketplaces around the world;
  • Jobs range from $5AUD to ~$100AUD/hr+ and it is not always easy to find out how much each company offers as rates are a complex equation of bonuses and penalties;
  • More than 65% of companies only hire teachers from the USA, Canada or the UK, so rarely advertise ‘down under’;
  • Many companies offer teachers a fee to recruit others, so it is not always clear if teachers are being honest. There are also few forums for teachers to leave feedback about companies – especially negative feedback.
A common example of a job ad on a major website that excludes Australasians.

Do you want to find a job that fits into your lifestyle?

  • No university degree or new to teaching?
  • Do you need to know the peak working hours and time zones to fit into your schedule?
  • Do you want to know the exact hourly rate?
  • Want to teach adults, children or teens?
  • Prefer one-on-one classes or groups?

Do you want current and impartial information?

  • I have no vested interest other than to provide the best current information for current or aspiring online English teachers from Australia and New Zealand.
  • I am in regular contact with teachers who work for many of these companies, speaking with new teachers and actively seeking new information on a weekly basis.
  • When companies go on a ‘hiring freeze’, they are hidden on the list until they resume.

...but why should I pay for a job?

Maybe you’ve seen other free lists and information online and wonder why you should pay? That’s fair.

Almost all of the information regarding online English teaching jobs that you’ll find out there on the internet is sponsored or works on a referral basis – meaning, they get paid to recruit you. 

This means that the information provided isn’t always transparent, as it is in a recruiter’s best interests to get you hired. Instead, we wanted to put the control back in your hands. We are not affiliated to any companies and provide 100% TRANSPARENT and up-to-date information (from a teacher’s perspective) so that you can find the best job that suits your needs. If a company stops hiring or we receive negative feedback about them – we remove them immediately. 

You’ll avoid taking the lesser paid role you saw on a random forum and get access to the best, most up-to date information available anywhere. You’ll save yourself wasted time applying for companies you are not eligible for, or accepting an unsuitable job from one of the major companies, when a smaller and lessor known competitor is looking for your skills, specialisations and qualifications – but does not advertise widely. I assure you, this list the only one of its kind on the internet.

Paying for this list helps me to maintain and research the job market on an ongoing basis. It means that I can remove any companies that treat their teachers badly or don’t pay them without being concerned about having paid ties to them. I can list small, specialised companies for you without fear of them being inundated with unqualified applicants.
