The best teachers are those that love to teach, who's enjoyment thereof is gained by seeing their students succeed, no amount of money can buy that.
As for paying teachers more if they succeed, well, there are certain problems with that, some will deserve the extra money, but, others will do their best to fudge the exams so as to get that extra money.
Testing should, at least occasionally, be independently administered, this is the only fair way to keep an eye on the results being obtained. Through such a method, rewards could be given.
If two teachers of the same group of students got vastly different results, is one teacher ineffective, is the other teacher manipulating results, or is one teacher just more inspiring and likeable than the other gaining good results because the students like learning from them.
There are many things that can affect a teachers ability, but, if they love teaching, they will always look for ways to help the students to learn and to do well in exams.
P.S. I teach online for free, I do it because I enjoy helping my students, they keep coming back because they like the way I teach, and feel they are learning from me very well, I teach about 16 hours a week this way, for about 3 years or more, and have been offered teaching jobs in China, one of which I will take up soon. I have seen and spoken to many teachers, some of whom should not be allowed to even teach for free, but others I know are very dedicated, both the vollenteer and the professionally paid.
One does not need to have gone to university to be a good teacher, though a decent education is of benefit, one needs to enjoy it too.
