Teaching English online has developed into a huge industry over the past five years and it makes sense. If you have a stable internet connection and a good quality webcam, then any fluent English speaker is able to make a good living online!
People who pursue English teaching make between $15 to $25/hour!
This is a good wage in any country but imagine how far that wage could go in Bali or Brazil where living costs are a lot lower!
The benefits of being paid to teach English are numerous, but for the purpose of this post, obviously the most important advantage is that you can teach English online from anywhere in the world!
Lots of people seem to think that to teach English online you need to have a Bachelor’s degree, but this isn’t the case! There are reputable companies out there employing people to teach English.
If you don’t have a degree but you still speak English fluently, then you can teach English online and earn up to $25/hour!

2 VIRTUAL ASSISTANT
Being a virtual assistant is a great option for many beginners who are wanting to work online but don’t have any skills yet.
Typical Virtual Assistant tasks can include email account management, customer service, content creation, video editing, social media manager. As you can see, a whole host of varied and exciting responsibilities!
Remember, that everyone was a beginner at some point and the great thing about being a virtual assistant is that you are paid to explore different possible career options.
