      Pros

      - opportunities for bonuses - some flexibility in choosing your hours - pay can be really good when you have a full schedule - the kids can be really cute

      Cons

      - strict team - 10 peak hour minimum is a lot more troublesome than it seems - constant changes to schedule and platform - lots of absences - very condensed schedule - mismatched class groups - boring material for older children - your salary depends heavily on the child's rating and even if you have hundreds of 10 star reviews a few bad ones (which you usually get because the student was tired and didn't want to have class or because they didn't like the material) can torpedo your score. It takes MONTHS to get rid of the low scores. - employees are disposable - no upward mobility - you're constantly given content you didn't train for (there are different curriculums and as a new person you're only supposed to have access to one because they only train you for one but they just throw everything at you and you're expected to catch up, then take the training later) - we're more entertainers than teachers for some age groups

      Pros

      You can work from home and enjoy the comfort. Flexible schedule and cancellation policy. Students are usually good although they can be difficult at some times. You can teach both adults and juniors. The pay is always on time, reliable.

      Cons

      If something happens, you're the guilty one. The client is always right policy. They assign salary based on your location/nationality so you can get from 4$ - 10$ per hour.

      Pros

      Great way to develop your teaching chops, opportunity to make money and learn skills in times of economic crisis, lots of training tools, flexibility on interface and image database. In all honesty, I had some great moments with this company before the "big shift" occurred. It really helped me learn and develop some serious teaching skill, so now I can feel more confident in my ability.

      Cons

      Company has changed ownership, and has gone downhill ever since. I went from being offered promotions to recruiter and demo teacher, to being let go without any explanation, over the course of a few months. Hundreds of teachers in my social media were let go, for various reasons - vague descriptions of shifting industry standards (from connection, teaching style, status as native or foreign speaker etc). Company is basically just trying to pay teachers less - automation has also come to produce unwelcome environment.

      Pros

      You make minimum wage which to some people is better than nothing

      Cons

      -you are expected to log in for your next session while you are "still" teaching -you get no respect from tutor chat, they are as rude as ever and get paid to do NOTHING -if you are not 3 minutes early you get marked as absent, get a RUDE letter sent to you, your hours go in this messed algorithm where it says you do not deserve to be a teacher. -you treat people like they are nothing, and see everyone complaining and still do nothing -you are the only company that forces their workers to wear a uniform as if we are your little minions if you want to enforce a uniform that YOU PAY YOUR EMPLOYEES FOR IT. Not everyone wants a useless red shirt in their closet. -
