      Pros

      QKids has a great support team and system. The lessons are fun and creative. Scheduling your classes are easy with the App including the class lessons and students names. If there are any issues the QKids team is ready to help all the time. It's a great company to work for, I would recommend it to anyone.

      Cons

      Hours must correspond with working hours in China so they can be very early in the morning or very late at night depending on where you live in the US.

      Pros

      This company has a simple and user-friendly interface for their teaching application and also provides a great launching pad for anyone who wants to pursue a career in teaching English as a Second Language.

      Cons

      Lack of sleep due to time difference. Pay is determined by what is available, and many classes are assigned on an invitation by invitation basis. Meaning, some months you will make $300 and in other months you will make $1,000 depending on a multitude of factors, such as Chinese national holidays, competing with other teachers for time slots, and so on. Additionally, though there are plenty of lessons, it isn't uncommon to teach the same lesson two or three times per day. This can quickly become boring and it's the teacher's job to maintain enthusiasm despite this. Additionally, while the students are motivated to learn, most of the time you will deal with parents or relatives talking loudly in the background which can be distracting. My advice for new teachers is, if you have no classes on your schedule, send CCT or your classroom coordinator a message and they'll help you out promptly.

      Pros

      They provide all of the lesson materials, handle class scheduling, and keep track of student's progress.

      Cons

      Payment sent out only once a month. They do not pay US taxes so be prepared to cough up around %30 of this income.
