Some teachers ditch the large ESL classrooms for a more personal 1-on-1 tutoring experience. This can be achieved from the comfort of your desk at home with this list of 5 online teaching companies that are structured in a one student per class format.
DaDa offers teachers weekly scheduled classes with regular students. This means that not only do you get to teach students 1-on-1, but you will also get to see the same students weekly! This is great for seeing development and building rapport!
VIPKid are always at the forefront of the online teaching conversation. Their fame is an indication of a reliable and trustworthy experience for teachers. Unlike DaDa, you won't get your student bookings magically appearing in your schedule, but you will get to focus all of your energies on one student at a time through their platform.
If you are after a much more flexible online ESL experience, then Cambly is a good bet. Your one-on-one students are adults from all over the world. You can sign in to tutor at any time for conversational English experience with a non-native learner.
The pay is lower than other companies due to the much more flexible nature and lack of experience required. Click here for a list of more jobs teaching adults ESL online.

PalFish offers the same flexible structure as Cambly – but classes are taught from your mobile phone or tablet – so certainly some one-upmanship in terms of flexibility.
1-on-1 classes can be taught to both adults and children.
