I taught at an International School in Thailand for two years. I have my Degree and my TEFL. TutorABC was my first online English Teaching experience. I worked for TutorABC for three months. TutorABC offers 45 minute and 25 minute sessions. The 45 minute sessions can have 1-6 students (30% of mine were with 1 student). The 25 minute sessions can have 1-2 students. I have taught 666 25 minute classes and 92 45 minute classes with an overall rating of 9.68 out of 10.
TutorABC says that you can make up to USD$30/hr with their 45 minute sessions. This is a sick joke and is based on ALL THE STUDENTS giving you a 10 rating. The students are NOT REQUIRED to rate the teachers. You, as a teacher, can remind them to rate your class, but you can not ask for a high score or you will be fired. When students do not rate you, you as a teacher have no recourse. I have contacted TutorABC many times in the beginning to ask them to remind the students to rate my class and received silence in return. This is the SCAM that TutorABC uses to cheat the teachers.
TutorABC get s paid by the students. If the students DO NOT rate the teachers, TutorABC keeps your portion of the bonus. TOTAL SCAM.
DO NOT teach for TutorABC unless you like being treated like an underpaid slave.
Flexible hours and decent technical support.
Horrible management and schedulers, poor lesson material, last minute change of classes without teacher knowledge.
