      They value entertaining over teaching

      Pros

      competitive pay, flexible schedule, great cancellation policy

      Cons

      Getting rated by students and parents is quite overwhelming. It isn't a great motivator, especially when it affects your raises and bonuses. I am all for feedback, but this their method is not constructive. They will freeze your account with no notice and no explanation. You have to be the one to reach out to admin to find out what went wrong. Quite unprofessional in m opinion. Very easy to burn out since we are performing, rather than teaching. It takes ages to deal with administrative issues and they are not very helpful even when they do take the time to get back to you.

      West Coast hour difference

      Pros

      For most situations, good communication using email. Facebook group is really helpful.

      Cons

      For west coast teachers, the time difference can be challenging. 1/2a.m. to 5a.m.. Also, little assistance from company when there is a completely uncooperative student. In a 25 minute class there is little an online teacher can do to handle a disrespectful student. When 99.9% of the time the teacher is successful, after there is 1 complaint in 1500+ students, they will lock you out of the system.

      Pros

      You work from home and the pay is decent per hour, especially if you get enough classes.

      Cons

      Too animated for me and pick you apart over little things such as not smiling enough. Kids are allow to leave derogatory comments about you and it can get stressful.
