Review: Qkids are strict when it comes to hiring teachers that are based in the United States and Canada. They also have English teaching program in China. The degree requirement is either you’re holding a Bachelor’s degree or currently pursuing one from an accredited college. You’ll be teaching up to 4 students per class where children aged around 5-12. You will be working on the typical peak hours in China, where classes are running between 6:40pm and 9:10pm on the weekdays and additional late night Friday and Saturday hours from 8:40-11:50pm for 30-min class each. QKids doesn’t seem like the best pay around the blocks, ranging $16-20 per hour, but so far we heard great reviews from teachers who have taught them. The teaching materials are provided, and its computer program seems like one of the most interactive and joyful ones out there. Minimal 6 hours commitment per week. Qkids is founded in 2015 as JiuQu English and 97 kid and as of September 2017, they rebranded to QKids. HQ in Fujian, China.
Note: Qkids is making some update for their hiring process. So the new interview process will be delayed. Will update you when Qkids is back on service ASAP. (8/15/18)
