Pros:. Meet new, interesting people every day. One lesson you're speaking with a surgeon from Brazil, the next you're speaking with a student from Cameroon. The majority of the students make you feel appreciatedCons:. The wage is very bad. But if you live in a low-cost country or city, it can be good. It is bad based on my location. No benefits.

I love everything about the job except the pay. Part of me feels like the pay is fair considering you don't have to be a certified teacher but being that I am I often feel grossly under-compensated. It takes a LOT of hours to make a living and you will need a super charged social battery.

Depending on the amount of time you put into it, working at Cambly can provide a decent side hustle. I like how you have complete control over your schedule. I enjoy meeting new people from around the world which often leads to developing friendships with regular students. The pay rate is very low. Hopefully they find more ways for tutors to increase earning potential.

I think the worst part of Cambly is the system itself. Priority Hours are atrocious. They have random people calling in with long numbers and no profile picture. It makes you not comfortable to answer the call without any information about the student. They expect you to answer those calls or you will be released from Priority Hour, even if you're waiting on a reservation. I think there should be some leniency in that. The pay itself could be so much better. They should be able to offer raises to teachers who have been on the platform a long time, have had no infractions, and are very well-liked by the students. I do like that my schedule is always booked. So if you're struggling with bookings on one ESL website, you could try this one to fill the slots in your schedule.I also like meeting new people from around the world and helping with their English. My biggest issues are the pay and their faulty system. That's all.
