Now You Can Choose Your
Own Teaching Hours
(Use our class scheduler)
"I hate waking up at 4am to teach my lessons." - Every online ESL teacher living in the USA.
Teaching online is a pretty sweet gig. It's fun, the kids are cute, and the pay is excellent. But, there's just one thing that kind of sucks. The hours can be terrible.
A lot of online teaching schools are based in China and the students like to have their lessons between 6pm and 10pm on weekdays and 9am and 9pm on weekends. These are called the peak working hours.
If you're living in New York, this means you have to wake up at .5am on a Monday morning to teach classes. If you are based in California, further behind in time from China, your alarm clock will be set to 2:45am.
Another big drawback of the online ESL profession is that classes can be hard to come by. Many teachers find it difficult to fill their teaching schedules, only teaching 2-3 classes during the 5 hours per day that they are available. It's not unusual for ESL teachers to have a class, an hour break, a class, a 2 hour break, and then 2 classes.
It messes up your day and your flow. Having classes haphazardly scattered throughout the day means you can't actually commit to doing anything, but you're also not being paid during your long and frequent teaching breaks.
Finally, if you can't get enough classes or teaching hours, then you may find it hard to pay the bills. Even if you earn enough to survive, if you're only teaching 10-15 hours per week, your chances of being able to save money are very slim.
Great, so if I want to teach English online, I'm going to have to wake up super early, work irregular hours, and I won't have enough to comfortably live on. Where's the good news, Laura?
Because we work with many online ESL schools, we can offer our teachers more choice and flexibility in the hours that they choose to work.
We offer our teachers the option of working all morning, evening, and/or night if they so wish. We have hours available from 7.30am in the morning to 10pm at night (Chinese time, GMT +8). You can work regular hours, no matter where in the world you're living. No more waking up at all hours of the morning to teach lessons.
Not only do we have more suitable working hours, you can even choose your own teaching schedule. You choose hours from our scheduler and we'll match you with two schools who can exactly match your preferred working times. No more sitting around, bored, and not getting paid.
We have purposely structured our classes to suit everyone:
It doesn't matter whether you'd like to work full time, 40+ hours a week, or just 4 hours a week, to earn some extra money on the side. We don't enforce limits, minimums or maximums.
There's no catch. Our job placement programme is completely free for teachers and most applicants start working in their online schools within 2 weeks.

As soon as you have filled in your preferred hours, we will send you a follow up email with the names of two schools which will perfectly match your hours.
