The main website:

The main recruiter I work for sends teachers in a few directions: online with a few of their companies (as listed above), depending on age, OR for US-qualified elementary teachers there are a few other, more well-paid options, suited to your skills. It makes no difference to you financially if you choose to use me to represent you or send an email directly to one of the companies. If you choose to go through me, I will help answer your questions, help you with the interview process, the two three demo lessons and anything else that may arise. As I said before, make note of my name as I will be around for a while and I stand by my reputation.

NOTE: this online company pays better than the others. In return, they expect the best professionals in the industry and require a solid commitment towards their goals.
