Give it up losers. If you are desperate enough to resort to online teaching then you are desperate enough to resort to crime.

No self-respecting native speaker with any kind of ambition should get into teaching English online. That is a TERRIBLE way of making money because you're trading time for very poor pay. You're better off staying at home and saving up some money before attempting something else.

I'd never advise it as a full time gig, although some manage that. It's really meant to be a supplement to your income. There are good jobs out there even for online teachers, but they are not easy to find and get.

And to me, all the benefits you can gain teaching online are eclipse by having an actual TEFL job.
