You managing your own schedule on paper sounds way better than it seems. The system has you setting up your free time on the schedule system they have. Whether students take the slots is the problem. You can end up waiting the entire day to fine out no one took any of your slots. Its a waste of electricity and time on the workers part. Students can schedule a half hour before the said free slot, which to me isnt very good time wise as well. Payment is also low which is another issue.
Problematic scheduling system and low pay
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.
Gives you a lot of training which are essential for your profession and promotion.
They have bigger penalty rate than your actual per 25-minute rate.
It is an awesome experience! I really enjoyed teaching students during my free time. Trainings provided by the company really helps a lot for self-improvement. I am confident and was able to deliver my lessons very well. 51 talk has competitive salary and incentives, great support system, fun work culture and reliable management.
incentives and compensations
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.
Convenient and fun
No benefits, penalty fees are very high, you are required to teach at night during peak hours
Job seekers rely on your experience.
Every work experience is unique. Let people know your thoughts on previous employers.
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.
Experience, socialization, and improve.
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.
Overall the company is great, I enjoy working in here, relaxing and can work at anytime, and also a lot of free training's that you can book and you can enjoy everytime.
flexible working schedule
low booking rate, lots of deductions, less benefits.

The trainings helps me a lot to be a better teacher. I can confidently teach because Im in 51talk family. The management helps us alot from day 1. They are able to guide us and encourage us to do our best. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to experienced the fun in teaching kids. The hardest part of my job is to be able to work especially when there is a power interruption from our place. Despite of the pandemic Im still thankful that I have a job. 51talk helps me a lot and my family to survive this crisis we are facing. Looking for more trainings and become a junior teacher, someday.

51Talk is great for both experienced and non-experienced online teachers. The company has great training courses and they even offer free TESOL. The pay is also good packaged with great incentives. Overall I'm happy with 51Talk!
Flexible working schedule, Free Training, Hmo, Tesol, etc.
Being part of 51Talk as a home-based teacher was the best experience I've ever had. This experience helped me boost my skills in teaching through the free trainings and webinars that they offer. I also feel like I am my own because I can teach whenever I want to since 51Talk offers flexible teaching hours. And lastly, I am motivated to teach because of their compensation that is enriched with bonuses and incentives.
Flexible Teaching and Work-From-Home type of job setting
They have flexible plotting of schedule but there is no guarantee that all your open schedule will be book.I always experience low booking even though I open my slots on peak hours.The penalty is higher than your hourly rate.They should have consideration on the employees part.
low booking, No student, Higher penalty rate
Very convenient, and the work hours are flexible! For a person like me who rarely wants to go out and deal with the hot Philippine weather, a job like this is awfully convenient! I usually work at night so I can spend more time with my family in the day which is great!
I used to work for Acadsoc for 2 years and the compensation I got is nowhere near how much I earn now with 51Talk. Everything has just been so good, so far - from the salary, benefits, and volume of students; not to mention the ease of the application process, it only took me 3 days to complete!
I couldn't be more happier to have made the switch!
