As the ASUU strike continues, causing idleness and no income for a number of people, especially students, faculty and non-teaching staff, most teachers will be looking for other ways to earn money. Fortunately, there are websites that offer this service.

Some of these websites require a bachelor’s degree to be accepted to teach, while others only require TOEFL/TESOL. Some also require an interview before officially starting work.

The hourly rates of the best tutors on this platform are around N13,084.97 to N50,326.80, but these tutors are said to have put in up to 20 to 55 hours per week..

As long as there is a stable internet connection and a computer with a microphone and webcam, tutors can work from their preferred location anywhere in the world.


Mastering the English language can open up new opportunities for students around the world. Both the platform and the student using it are aware of this, which is why Cambly tries to work with the tutor’s schedule. There are no hours required, so tutors can use Cambly to supplement their income by working as little or as much as they want.

Tutors receive their payments weekly through Paypal, but as this is not available in Nigeria, they can use a proxy. They welcome tutors who have no previous teaching experience and who are willing to work with students as they learn the English language.

Cambly also doesn’t require any lesson planning, homework, or homework grading. The platform wants tutors to spend their time and energy on students rather than paperwork.
