FAQ

Please call us on +1 (203) 453-5838 if you have questions.

We are asked the same questions each day, so we hope this page of Frequently Asked Questions will be helpful to you. Anyone in our office can answer your questions anytime you call. We want you to make informed decisions, and we will be happy to talk to you anytime.

Do I need to teach for an entire semester or year?

We recommend that you commit to an initial time frame of six months. Remember, it can take up to a month to become known to students, parents, and schools. Take that initial time and build up your classes, which will add to your flexibility in scheduling.

Will I still get paid for the session if the student does not show up?

If the student cancels two hours or less before the scheduled appointment, yes, you will still get paid.

How many classes can I teach each week?

That’s up to you.  How much money do you want to earn?  :-).

To begin, it will be fewer classes as students and classroom teachers in China start to “meet” you through your tutoring.  Then as they get to know you and your teaching, they will select to sign up with you.

How many students are in a group class?

15-150

How long is each session?

One to one tutoring (or one to three tutoring):  25 minutes (but receive payment for half an hour)

Group tutoring:  40 minutes (but receive payment for the full hour!)

What's the process once I sign up?

Submit the application form.

Have a Skype interview.

If you don't already have your TEFL or TESOL certificate, sign up for your first class.

Begin scheduling your online classes using our scheduling software.

This process should take approximately 2-3 weeks.

Do I need to have a Bachelor's Degree to teach English online?

Online teachers with at least a Bachelor's degree will get booked faster than online teachers who don't have a degree.

Over the years we have met plenty of non-degree holders who become amazing teachers. You will need to take our 120-hour TESOL course to qualify. Also, you will need to teach a demo lesson. If you pass both, there is no reason that non-degree holders can't teach English online.

Do I need to prepare teaching materials?

No.

We provide the curriculum. You will need to become familiar with the curriculum before your classes begin. Just follow it, which will guarantee your success and the success of your students.
