    I have been working at QKids part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    QKids offers great part-time hours that allow you to finish teaching every early in the day.
    The QKids staff is amazing, and I cannot rave enough about how wonderful they treat their employees and how kind they are to work for.
    The children are very sweet and enjoyable to work with.
    With small classes, it's very easy to interact and provide one-on-one attention during class.
    There is no lesson planning or grading-a teacher's dream!
    This job has great (and consistent) pay and scheduling.

    Cons

    Although it's not really a con, I wish I could teach more classes! With the time difference, teaching four classes a day is standard. It is perfect as a part-time position though!
    Also, once in a while it can be a struggle to be engaging at 6am, but it is definitely worth it.

    Advice to Management

    You have been such a blessing to me, and I am very grateful for the consistent and kind manner in which you interact with your teachers. Keep it up!

    I have been working at QKids part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent teaching platform, everything is planned all you have to do is guide the kids through the class. The kids are very smart and have usually already reviewed the lesson beforehand so it's even easier thanks to this.

    Staff are very understanding and collaborative. They're always there when help is needed or you have a question. I have always been paid fairly and on time.

    Cons

    Somtimes during the off season there seems to be fewer classes available

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    Great pay for the time you spend. You work from home. Easy training if you have no online teaching experience. You choose your hours.

    Cons

    Not many Cons. But if any , you HAVE to be available for the hours you schedule and can be exhausting if you can't handle super early mornings and late nights. and keep an upbeat personality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!!

    "Good Extra Money"

    I have been working at QKids part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can work in your PJs! Great way to make extra money on the side. The children are adorable and very well behaved. Staff seems to always be available to answer questions.

    Cons

    Only get paid once a month.

    Advice to Management

    Listing $16-$20 an hour is a little misleading since you have to log into the class before it begins, and then wait 10 minutes before your next class begins. Therefore, making it $16-$20 for about an hour and a half.

    I have been working at QKids part-time

    Pros

    I'm a college student and I'm not sure where I would be without this job. It has made my life easier on so many levels just by being able to let me pick and change my hours. It's almost unreal that this job exists. Plus the kids are super cute!

    Cons

    A lot of tech malfunctions with the software BUT they're always very understanding.

    Pros

    Competitive pay with bonuses, flexible schedule, work from home or anywhere (with headset & stable internet). Great support!

    Cons

    No full time hours if that’s what you’re looking for (though they increase hours in summer). Majority of class time options are early am.
