      I have been working at Gogokid part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I am so glad that I found Gogokid! The hours are completely flexible (no minimum required), the pay is great, you get to interact with AMAZING kids, and it's absolutely fulfilling work. The Gogokid staff are very friendly and listen to the needs of the teachers. They take our suggestions and feedback to heart, and as much as possible, they do what they can to make it a wonderful environment for us. There is also...

      -Occasional IT issues -We're independent contractors, so no benefits -Time difference in China, but your body gets used to it very quickly

      Advice to Management

      Continue to maintain a warm and supportive environment. I appreciate that we have access to staff members via Facebook, and that they spend many hours, often on their own time, trying to address our needs. Keep up the great work!

      I have been working at Gogokid full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      *I applied for 2 companies at once. Gogokid has a much easier application process. Gogokid Parents book you! This is great. I get fully booked and feel I do a great job. I get 5 star reviews. However staff at the other company seem to only book staff who has a track record for trial converts - not giving new teachers a chance to prove themselves. *I fill up with all my slots. In two months I have had over 310 bookings!...

      Cons

      *Students technology is sometimes very poor, making it difficult to teach *The trial slides are not on par with the actual lessons for the level K1 level. They are much harder. Core class slides are often too easy and trial slides are often too hard. *No video playback

      Advice to Management

      *Allow teachers access to video recordings. *Make trial for "It is red" easier. On par with the one-two word k1 lessons. The trial is 5 words, and the actual lessons are 1-2 words. I feel more people would convert. Most of my "it is red" students are overwhelmed by the 5 words sentences. I think the parents think the program is probably too hard, when in actuality, it is likely too easy!

        I have been working at Gogokid part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        I have never been as happy teaching as I am with Gogkid. I make about as much income as I did at public schools, however now I only work part-time and I am at home. The GGK support team is very helpful and can be accessed during class if necessary. The lessons are already written, which means no work to grade, just a brief assessment form to fill out. It is a one-on-one classroom with interactive activities. I highly...

        Pros

        I love the flexibility in scheduling with gogo kid! The platform is amazing, and as a growing company they are addressing growing pains and constantly moving forward! I love the credit score system and the opportunities for advancement!

        I have been working at Gogokid part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        I love this company. I have been teaching since the summer of 2018. I am fully booked and am making significantly more $ than the other online ESL company I work for. The staff at Gogokid are always very helpful in resolving any issues that may arise. Very pleased.

        Cons

        Since it’s still a newer company, I have not referred any personal friends just because I don’t have a lot of extra time to devote to helping them navigate the application process at this time.
