I've been working as an online english teacher for more than a year already, and I can feel that I'm tired with my work. I want to stop, the only thing that making me continue teaching are my students and the flexibility of the job. I like to do photography, video and photo editing, sing, travel, making videos, blogging. I want to do what I really want to do. I'm getting tired of this.

It depends on how you workload yourself. Actually, it is fun. I've been teaching online for more than 2 years. But I don't feel the boredom of doing it.

it all depends. I just feel tired because I cannot get the enough amount of money that I worked on because they deduct us 10% tax, which I don't really like. ESL is good for part time, not for full time. that's my opinion.

Look into finding some gigs for the things that you really enjoy doing, in the meantime just keep teaching until you find something better to do. I know it's hard to do a job that you really don't like but as long as you stick to chasing your dreams you will get there eventually. Just can't give up :)

maybe you can check out online freelance job sites that offer projects and pay when finished

I tried that, but it's not an assurance that you can earn big. besides, it is bidding type

I've been an English online teacher for 8 years now. Been wanting to quit but my students are begging even just for a little of my time.

I can feel that! I am also attached to my students, that's the only thing stopping me from quitting.

I know what is coming from. I've been teaching English online for more than 2 years now. I must admit it pays more than the regular jobs in our country. We just need to think positive.
