Popular ESL Companies that Hire British Teachers
If you want to work for a company that likes the British way you pronounce “pool”, then the above companies might be a great fit. I am American and it rhymes with “pull”, but SayABC encourages me to teach it as a long u sound that rhymes with “boot”. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to make this happen. They still kept me on as a teacher but, if you are British, perhaps you can give it a go and succeed where I never did.
Platforms that hire British Teach English Online
If you British and looking for a way to capitalize upon that background, then consider specializing in tutoring for the IELTS exam.
The IELTS is an International English Exam created by IELTS a jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge Assessment English.
It is always helpful to focus on a niche, especially when posting your profile on a platform such as Preply or Verbling. It does not need to be as daunting as it seems, either. There are many great online resources to teach towards the IELTS exam. My personal favorite has been IELTS Liz’s site.
The British Council also has excellent ESL resources such as lesson plans and English audio exercises to enliven your online classroom.
What ESL Companies are based in the UK?
The companies below are based in the UK and exclusively or primarily hire British teachers. If you want to work for a British company, consider these online ESL companies below.
Work for a British ESL Company
Tutor supply has a high pay rate at $22 – 32 per hour and wants teachers for their kids classes. The company does not require a degree. Be prepared to teach PPT (Peak Peak Time) Beijing Prime Time, which is 6-9PM (Beijing Standard Time). They hire both native and non-native English speakers, but you must pass a UK background check and have the right to work in the UK.
PhoneBoxLanguage lets you talk by telephone or Skype and teach one-to-one classes for adults and kids. The pay is $9-$12 per hour, though, so this should be a last resort. This may be a good side-job option while building your Preply or Verbling business.
Usually, ESL companies that hire teachers for students based across Europe, the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia defer to British English as a standard English, while ESL companies that hire teachers for students based in Latin America and East Asia will teach American English.
Cheerios and happy teaching.
