Review: This company is based out of Vietnam. They claim to have “over 50,000 students from Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam”. They hire non-native teachers with a preference for teachers from the Philippines. The pay rate starts at $8.50 and can go up to $16. They guarantee 20 hours a month and more if you are good and available. They also require a one year contract. The working time spans 16 classes each day, which last from 8AM to 11PM (GMT+7) and are 45 minutes per class. The students are university students and working professionals who have a need to learn conversational English. TOPICA emails lesson plans to you so there is no need to create your own and there is little preparation.
Review: This company is out of Singapore and they are seeking teachers that are native or near-native level coaches of English, Mandarin, Spanish, French, or German. They have a wide range of pay from $13-38 depending on the language you are teaching and other factors. The children are aged 3-15 and are from all around the world. They also have a lot of fantastic reviews from parents that you can read about here. Note: This school requires you to pay for your training. The reason for this is due to the high pay and the lengthy training process. The assumption is if you are paying for your training then you will complete it.
