Most of the websites I have shown above are based in India. There are many international websites that pay well for online tutoring jobs. However, their process of application is lengthy and bit difficult.
I will recommend you should go with these websites when you have some good experience in online teaching. With your experience, you can earn more from these websites.
They take more time to approve you as an online tutor. Some of those US/UK based popular online tutoring sites are:
All the online tutoring websites I have listed in one place. But the cherry on the cake is still to come. And here it is:
So cherry on the cake is ENGLISH.
Here I have listed down the websites from where you can get handsome money by teaching English or any language to the students.
English is the most demanding language of all time. Its fashion and passion will never fade.
People of India or the other countries, where English is not the mother tongue (like China, Japan, Korea), face problem in learning international languages.
They recruit teachers from all over the world who have good command in the English language and are fluent in speaking English.
You can easily get recruited if you have the expertise in this language or any other foreign language.
I have also listed one Indian Website that is Ufaber, where you can teach English language or can take speaking English classes.
TheFluentLife is India based firm founded by IIT entrepreneurs. They will provide you teaching material, and you have to take live video classes one-on-one through Skype or Zoom video calling.
Even if you are a college student, you can teach others.
You can teach Spoken English, business communication etc. They have other website called Ufaber there you can teach competitive exam courses like Gate, UPSC and IELTS.
You can call them or email them to apply for a tutor.
Italki is HongKong based company. Not only English but you can also teach another foreign language on Italki if you have good command over any language.
The best part of this international website is that you can also teach Hindi language to students.
You have to create a video profile talking about your introduction and your expertise in the language you want to teach. Based on that students will pick you as a tutor. You will be paid for each session.
Fluentify is different from other. Because it strictly demands 2-year teaching experience and certification in English language (TEFL Certificate).
However, if you have this, you can apply here because its remuneration is quite higher than other websites. Becoming tutor on this website is little tricky.
On PrePly, you can teach English, Hindi and other foreign languages. This website does not demand experience to teach any language.
Here you have to create your video profile, talking about yourself and your education qualification and knowledge of the language etc. and you have to upload on the website.
They will give a rating on your video. On Preply, they also provide you with the option to teach Math, computer and other subjects.
However, mostly it is known for online language learning classes.
5. VIP kids
VIP kids is a China-based firm. You can teach spoken English or basic school grades level English to Chinese students.
After submitting application, you have to appear in their test or interview and when there is vacancy they will hire you.
All these five websites I have mentioned pay really well, and they are very genuine. You can earn upto 40000 rupees from these websites within a few hours.
Working with these websites, one can easily turn their passion into a profession and their spare time into a profitable one. So do not sit back and start earning.
