You get penalized even if it's not your fault and lesson support won't help reverse the penalties! That inconsiderate company even suspended my account without warning due to technical reasons thus depriving me from my then source of income!
Pros
flexible time
Cons
few students, brats, inconsiderate management

I'm always grateful for the experience they've given me. It boosted my confidence and trained me to become better in the teaching profession. They offer free online trainings and promotions are easy to achieve. You just really have to have a good and stable internet connection as well as a secure source of electricity, which I lacked back then. Without it, penalties would be stacked more than your actual rate per session.
Pros
Gives you a lot of training which are essential for your profession and promotion.
Cons
They have bigger penalty rate than your actual per 25-minute rate.

The company before has a good sense of management. But, when 2019 comes, everything changes. It becomes worse. They are not treating their teachers as "TEACHERS" but more on "Money Makers".
if the student does not feel the teacher they could actually check bad evaluations even if it is not apparent on your class, sudden shift of company rules and regulations, they are not consistent, more on money making and not teaching.
Pros
Work from home, incentives( if luckily you have good and understanding students)
Cons
Absurd management, they are not following the vision and mission of the company, the true essence of teaching is not followed

● Pay & benefits
My pay and benefits at 51Talk are the worst! They pay you very low yet you do a lot of effort to teach. The penalties are 4 times than your salary per 25 mins. There is no justice indeed. Please please do not apply here.


● Overall

My experience working at 51Talk is not good. You exert a lot of energy and time but do not get any benefit or even a bigger salary.

I can also say that this is the perfect work-life balance!

Being a part of 51Talk was the best decision I have ever made. Who knew that a person with no teaching experience, such as myself before, is now living a comfortable lifestyle teaching children while at the comfort of my home. At first, I didn't have any experience but with the wide array of trainings that 51Talk offers, I was able to develop all the skills I need to become an effective teacher. With this, I can say that 51Talk has a strong support system because it cares for its teachers. Moreover, the incentives and bonuses that I am receiving are exciting, which definitely drives my motivation up to this day.
Pros
Work From Home, Flexible Teaching Schedule
Cons
None

Penalties are way too high and there's no consideration esp when there's a power outage and not entirely your fault. Promotions and tagging are delayed as well. You have to wait for weeks before they will tag your promotion. They won't even bother unless you contact or follow up the support team.
Pros
Convenient and fun
Cons
No benefits, penalty fees are very high, you are required to teach at night during peak hours

51 Talk should fix their AC. Why? Because their AC is a trash. It is not their employees fault that they can not enter their class, its the company itself.
Pros
Experience, socialization, and improve.
Cons
AC is a TRASH, naughty kids, you'll get 1/4 of your student's payment as your salary and the rest is to the company, and lasty no justice when it is the student or company's fault.

Pros
Work at home, incentives, promotions
Cons
So far, I have no problem with my work

A typical day at work is preparation before the first lesson. Prepares needed pictures, check the laptop, sound check among others. I learned that I need to be prepared all the time so that the teaching-learning process is enjoyable to me as well as to my student. The hardest part of the job is when there are connection problems that can not be controlled, thus, lost of teaching time. The most enjoyable part is when I know that I did my best to teach and that I know that my student really learned
Pros
there are available bonuses for a job well done
Cons
connectivity interruptions not can not be controlled

Not so good company.

Not worthy.

Lots of penalties for teachers

Sometimes there are bad students and it will be very stressful for the teachers
