Teach English Online to Nigerian Students

Teach Nigerian Students: Top Companies

Here are the top companies you can work for to teach English online to Nigerian students. In Nigeria, even though English is the official language, people do not speak it in rural areas as often. Students who speak one of the major languages, such as Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo, Fulfulde, Ibibio, Kanuri, might want to perfect their English with you. If you are interested in helping Nigerian students learn English, there are quite a few options.
