    Talking Best online ESL jobs????

    Hello all

    I am trying to find a better online company to work for.... I hope someone out there can help me....

    I am curently working for tutorabc and I have completed over 1000 classes, They provide all the class material, clients software etc... they make it really easy and they have as many classes available as you can teach....However the drawback is that is only pays $10 USD for each 45 min class. I am trying to find another online company to try working for with a similar platform. I don't want to make up my lesson plans, want simplicity...

    I am hoping to find something that pays between $12-$15 USD a class.... There are so many companies out there it makes my head spin...

    I thought we could use this thread to throw ideas around. I would be happy to share with you my experiences also.... Englishtown is another that is similar to tutorabc but again it is only $10 USD a class

    THANKS ALL!!!

    If you are not prepared to work for big money, don't expect to find it.

    Hey

    What type of feedback is that??

    This is a friendly thread, why would you make a comment like that?

    Big money????? Do you know what big money is???? haha

    If I wanted to make my own lesson plans and post my profile and try to build my own business there are 1000 sites like that out there and you can charge easily $20-$30 USD a class, I would define that as big money teaching english.... However $12-$15 USD a class is hardly big money.....

    This thread was for positive comments only .....

    If you want to make a reasonable living in TEFL, you will almost certainly need to be willing to prepare your own lessons.

    No negatives there.

    Where teaching's just following a set of instructions, regardless of whether it's on the web or in the classroom, the pay will always be lower. I think Fivejedjon is right about that. A method that removes the teacher's creativity, is de-skilling and will always be worked towards maximising the profits of those who created the materials used. One of the main points about rigid methodologies is that the teacher is a low value item in the chain. There might be places operating the same sort of system but paying a bit more, but prices at that end of the business do tend to be same-y.

    OK thanks for the replies guys.....

    Well maybe I will have to get my buy in gear and start working at getting lesson plans prepared....

    I have never worked on any of the other websites like "myngle" or any other ones..

    I do have about 50 lessons plans right now ready to go, I guess I could give it a try....

    Can anyone help direct me in the right direction?? My mind is blown with all the sites out there and it seems like they are flooded with tutors...

    Here are my qualifications:

    TEFL certified
    Taught at University level... Tech De Monterray in Mexico.... Very highly credited University
    More than 1000 classes with tutorabc
    Owned my own school, private and group classes....

    Any suggestions would be a great help

    There are sites like Online Tutors All Subjects. 1-on-1 Tutoring where you can offer services for the price you want- mind you, I haven't used them so I don't know how much work they generate.

    I don't really understand this. Why would you have lesson plans before you know who you're teaching?
