Besides the occasional random adult accidentally showing up in a DaDa trial class meant for kids…there are companies catered for teaching adults ESL online.
This is great for teachers who prefer more of a conversational English teaching approach.
Here are 5 ESL adult teaching job opportunities
With Cambly you are paid by minute and communicate with adults all over the world from your laptop.
The pay isn't fantastic at Cambly, but you can sign in to chat and earn at any time…which isn't a bad use of time considering you are having a conversation in the comfort of your desk chair.
PalFish operates in the same way as Cambly…however, you teach exclusively on mobile device.
You set your rate, make a profile and make yourself available to chat away to adults learning English all over the world…on your phone!
One of the largest online teaching companies in China, so not only can you teach kids…but also Chinese business professionals looking to brush up on their conversational skills!
Amazing Talker is a great opportunity for non-native speakers as you can teach any language you wish. You can work as many hours as you like as you build your own profile as a teacher to attract adult language learners.
You may even end up helping an adult brush up on their skills for an upcoming language exam. A far-cry from the puppet shows of online K12 teaching.
You can converse with adults on Preply's language learning platform. This is similar to Amazing Talker in the sense that you create a profile as a teacher to attract students to book you.
It is also not just limited to teaching English, as you can be a teacher for any language that you know, from Mandarin to Swedish!
