Reviews about Salary & Benefits for Teacher in 51Talk

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.


Friendly coaches/trainers, they have trainings making sure you are fully equipped for teaching, Free TESOL-TEYL courses, Most students are nice, 51talk has their own teaching platform (AC), Easy lesson flow, Flexible schedule


Very low pay, Not so reliable support, Has late and absent penalties, Inconsiderate to teachers, Students can give you bad feedbacks for no apparent reason and teachers can no longer send an appeal, Unstable teaching platform with lots of crash and bugs

Poor Salary

Very poor salary from the company and they should also consider the teacher's situation. They have very high penalties for the teacher. They are always on the side with the students.


Free TESOL Certificate


Low salary

low booking rate

You will have a good salary if your opened slots will be booked if not then you will just waste your time facing your computer. I just hope the company will think of a new way so that those teachers who have zero to low bookings will be given additional exposure. Equal opportunity for all teachers in the platform.


flexible schedule


very little bookings
