I've worked for a few teach English online companies and this was by far the best. Lots of feedback, well-organized company.They paid on time and bonuses were easy to obtain.

Mostly Great

Qkids is a great company, however they recently took away bonuses and the pay could be higher. The bonuses helped a lot and to take them away is discouraging.

Low key and fun work place

The staff is great! The kids are wonderful.The platform is intuitive and easy to use to teach kids. Pick your own hours. Pay rate could be higher but it is good for an easy additional income

Work from home

Hours are minimal but it's a good work from home postion to make a little extra money. You could not sustain a one income home with this position. Early morning hours.

Decent Company

Was a good thing while it lasted. There were plenty of sessions available and the lesson plans were easy to follow. Unfortunately, the company had to comply with regulations that limited hiring teachers in California.


Steady work


No bonus offers for new teachers

Flexible with compromises

Hourly rate wasn't bad but the hours of the classes can be difficult to work around for other jobs or obligations you may have. I loved working with the kids and seeing their excitement with learning. The onboarding process was relatively straightforward and brief.

Horrible pay and horrible hours!!! RUN! Don't accept this demoralizing paycut by Qkids!

It is unconscionable that Qkids requires a Bachelor's degree and a TESOL and then they try to, essentially, lower the pay to near minimum wage. That is an insult. Qkids needs to keep up with the industry standard and give tutors raises!


Students and CCT


Everything else.

Flexible, but lower pay

Great flexibility as you work from home early in the morning and have the rest of the day to do other things. However, bonuses have been cut for teachers, so after 6 years I make less…doesn’t seem right.

Easy job

Easy work but not the best pay. Curriculum developed for you through company software that is engaging for the students. Very flexible scheduling.

I’ve worked for Qkids for over 4 years and have always loved teaching! The mornings can be hard, but I love how flexible the job is, and how everything is already planned out.

You are able to make your own schedule, so it is flexible. Pay is not concrete because you don't know if there will be work openings for the week, that would be the downside.

Poor work environment, but students were delightful

Pros: The children were the best part of this job. Usually very cheerful and eager to learn.Cons: No breaks in between classes. Working 7 days a week. Early morning hours (2am -6am). No time for vocal rest. Bad for vocal health.

Awesome teaching job

Qkids is a fantastic place to work. The people who run the company are super kind, and the lessons themselves are interactive and great. The kids, for the most part, are also eager to learn and respectful.

An overall rewarding experience

Early morning shift. Worked ~3 hours each morning and taught 1-5 classes a day, all depending on the demand. Classes were scheduled by the staff, so there was no stress to schedule that yourself. Classes were fast moving and engaging for the students. Occasionally had the disinterested student, but overall were great kids and a great experience. Left for various reasons, but I recommend for anyone who wants to work with children in a low stress environment, if you have a bubbly attitude, have a teaching or TEFL/TESOL certification, and want to make a little cash in a side-gig.

Low pay but flexible. Low stress and fun teaching students who want to learn English. Set curriculum where you play games and encourage participation.

Fun way to earn extra income

The lessons are fun and engaging. The kids are eager and prepared to participate in the session. This job requires some technical multitasking abilities but it’s not completed once you get the hang of it. Early morning hours, but choose your own availability.

Great Platform, might be going downhill

I loved working for QKids from 2019-2021. Pay was fine for WFH. I left when schedules became unpredictable and unfortunately pay scale hasn’t increased as of 2023.

Easy Side Job

Qkids is a great side hustle, but not a full time job. Great for college students or teachers looking to make an easy extra hundred dollars a month! The hours do suck though if you are not EST!

Fun and Rewarding

This was my first teaching job, and I loved it! I taught up to 5 classes each day. The children are excited to learn and very fun to teach. Staff was very attentive of any technical issues and the rate system for the teachers was very fair. The pay was good!

Fun odd hours

Can be fun for the right people. If you don’t mind being in front of the camera this can be fun. Work with children ranging from 4 to 12 years of age. Sometimes the age and materials being taught can be a bit challenging but nevertheless it’s a fun learning platform for the students.

Great place to work if you love kids and like being silly.

What is the best part of working at the company?Great company to work for! I believe they’re the best in the ESL business. The only drawback is having to get up so early. If you’re a morning person and love kids and being silly, it’s the job for you!What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Getting up early is the only drawback to working for QkidsWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?They’re great to work for and understanding if you have to miss a class.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Get up early and get going! There are also evening hours on weekends and holidays.
