There is an online scheduling platform for teachers to use.
Online teachers with at least a Bachelor's degree will get booked faster than online teachers who don't have a degree.
Over the years we have met plenty of non-degree holders who become amazing teachers. You will need to take our 120-hour TESOL course to qualify. Also, you will need to teach a demo lesson. If you pass both, there is no reason that non-degree holders can't teach English online.
Remember, you will not be hired without a valid TEFL or TESOL certification, whether you have teaching experience or not. Online teaching is a field where there are more teachers than positions. Those with the highest level of experience (TEFL/TESOL) will be hired first.
We provide the curriculum. You will need to become familiar with the curriculum before your classes begin. Just follow it, which will guarantee your success and the success of your students.
I am looking forward to doubling my classes in the next month! Having the flexibility to do that is great. The weekends are well booked, but it would be great to get more classes from Monday to Thursday. The team is a great bunch to work with and it’s a nice platform to work on with good teaching materials.

I love the flexibility most of all. I can set my hours as I wish. Some weeks I have to get up very early for my classes. But the next week I take more evening classes so I can sleep later in the morning. It's perfect for me. The lesson plans, lessons, and the online platform are excellent and make teaching so easy.
