ESL Teacher in Pasig

Enjoyable experience teaching with kids
Great time with kids! If you love kids, this is the place to be. Each lesson is very engaging and fun for teacher and kid. Nowadays though limited bookings because of the policy implemented in China. Nevertheless the company is expanding its reach to other countries as well. Hopefully more students will be coming in to enroll. Adult students are also welcome to enroll therefore night slots are also in demand. For newbies and for those who are interested the company is willing to train new teachers, and tenured teachers too are given trainings as well.

Fun workplacr
Nice place to work with. Had fun working here and teaching kids. Kids easily get attached to you when you are good and kind to them. Salary is so low

51talk isn't that bad. Just okay.
It is a good company for starting your ESL career as they provide trainings and free TESOL-TEYL certification (that you'll get after two years in the company provided that you have a good record) however starting rate is very low (76 - 80php per hour) and it will take time to build regular students so you'll get stuck with a low pay rate for quite some time. To be honest, the pay rate per hour for senior and master teachers isn't even that good (88-100php per hour). 51talk is also very inconsiderate to their teachers when it comes to absences - even if the reason for absence is sickness, they will penalize you. As for the work itself, you don't have to make lesson plans as it is already provided. Each class lasts 25 minutes and follows an easy lesson flow.

I will not recommended this company.
If you are planning to work in this company. Please don't continue your plan because you'll regret once you signed the Service Agreement. I don't recommend this company. Just please look for another company to apply and NOT IN 51TALK. This company has no heart to their employees especially to their teachers. Lots of penalties.
