    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

    Great company, great pay, great technology, great team of people. The company is amazing and willing to work with teachers. Unlike other companies, they will consider candidates with less education. I have a masters degree but I have many friends with the company who have associates and have gotten their TESOL. You get constant feedback from your trainers.

    Cons

    The hours are early 5:40am or 6:40am for the east coast. But you get used to it in time. But that is a con with any company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

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

    Pros

    The pay comes out close to $20 an hour.
    Steady hours available. More hours over the summer of course but still a good amount of classes Fall of 2018.
    Lessons are easy to teach, doing this steadily for 8 months now and I can teach any lesson without looking at it beforehand.
    Working with kids is fun.

    Cons

    Even on a full schedule you are only working 19 hours.
    Attendance policy is unforgiving, losing up to $19 a week if you miss 1 class.
    Their program can be tricky to work.
    Working at 6:40AM takes some adjusting to.

    Advice to Management

    Add a feature that allows current teachers to submit feedback on the digital classroom's designs.

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

    Pros

    The staff are so helpful and welcoming. I have been working for them for almost a year and they are always willing to answer your questions in the quickest way possible. They also allow you to have a flexible schedule, if you need to take a day off you can tell them at least 24 hours before without penalty. Other companies require you to give them at least a two week notice before requesting time off. Therefore, Qkids matches my schedule the best, when I need to take time off for studying or if plans change at the last minute. The teaching platform is very innovative and fun to use when teaching the kids. They are always so happy and eager to learn.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons, the only issue is the time difference between China and the USA. It limits the amount of hours to teach to either very early morning or late at night.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome to your teachers! They are always there to listen and help out. This creates such a nice work environment to be a part of.
