I know this virus situation has put many of us out of work, especially as restaurants around the USA are closing. If you’re looking for a new job or to supplement your income during this time, I really encourage you to check out Palfish. I’ve taught on there for about three years and logged 1000+ hours of teaching.
You need to be a native English speaker, but you don’t need a bachelor’s degree, unlike all other high-paying teaching platforms. You don’t need to speak Chinese, either.
Mostly, it’s playing interactive English games with the kids while correcting their pronunciation. You’re provided the lesson materials, so there’s no prep work. You need stable internet and a phone/tablet. You set your own schedule for classes. It’s a real job, so yes, you will have to go through an application process, which typically takes a few days.
Here is a google doc I made with a lot more in-depth info and some overview of what the classroom/lessons look like, if you’d like to read in more detail.

If you do plan on doing Palfish, please read the guide carefully so that you pass your interview.
You can download the app here – I’ll get a notification on my Palfish account and I will walk you through the process. (I get a bonus if you join using my link, full disclosure!). Just figured I’d make a post here for those who are affected by this very unfortunate virus outbreak. (By the way, if there’s some kind of pop up, it’s probably due to it being a Chinese web page. It’s safe.)

If you’d rather not enter your phone number, you can go to this non-ref link and enter the code 4trMI6 at registration so that I’ll be able to see your profile and help you pass the interview.
I hope you found this post and the quick-start guide helpful, I wish you all safety and health during this time. God bless
