I am a bookworm but most of my learning was always from either online courses or videos. The learning methods have changed a lot, and it is very easy to teach or learn things via the internet.

The physical presence of the tutor or the student in the same place is not required anymore.

As I do a lot of reading and am constantly doing research in my niche, I frequently visit sites like Udemy, Lynda where I find a wealth of knowledge. But these are not live teachings; they are recorded courses.

There are many legitimate websites which employ tutors to teach other subjects, languages or just native English.

Today, I am going to curate a list of online tutoring jobs which have tutor openings. Many of these companies require teachers to teach conversational English, which is quite easy.
