There is a real need for online English teachers here at GeoVisions. You can help, and we'll reward you. We want to bring quality online teachers to GeoVisions.
All you need to do is introduce your family and friends to GeoVisions Foundation's online English teaching program. If they apply and are hired, after their first month's successful classes we will reward you according to this table:
1 successful teacher: $50.
2 successful teachers: $65 for each person.
3-6 successful teachers: $80 each person.
7-10 successful teachers: $100 each person.
Remember, a successful teacher is someone who applies, is accepted, and then has a full month of classes. You will receive your reward with your monthly salary direct deposit.
There is a $50 application fee, which will be returned to you in your first paycheck. There are quite a few applicants each week, and it takes a great deal of time to put all of your materials into a nice packet and get that information to China, where the online teachers are hired. We also developed an online course to help you prepare for and teach your demo class.
If the student cancels two hours or less before the scheduled appointment, yes, you will still get paid.
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.

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