Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great job, great hours, great pay! When you set up your account, start at a low wage unless you have the experience and learning material for over 1000 hours of teaching. You set your wages, and Verbling does take a commission percentage, but it's just like getting a paycheck and seeing how much of your money goes to taxes. Verbling has its own video client, and you can draw on pdfs/doc/img you upload to the lesson. You can't record lessons anymore, but you do has access to recording a snip-bit of yourself. You will get random new students, but it is also encouraged that you advertise your job on social media the first time you start working.

Pros

Wages, User friendly, Up-to-date, Great managment

Cons

You do the marketing, must use chrome browser

A Fun and Flexible Site

Verbling is great! You create your own schedule, rates, and curriculum. You have complete control over what you want to teach and who you want to teach. For example, I only teach teens or adults who are intermediate level or higher. I create my own teaching materials as well and tailor them to the students on an individual level. It is very freeing. There is some competition among English teachers simply because there are so many, so if your rate is way too high, you may not get many bookings (avg. is $20 to $25 per hour). I've met many cool students and the other teachers are really kind to chat with in the forums. Verbling Support is always kind and helpful whenever there is some kind of technological issue or other problem. All in all, it's a great place to work!

Great job working from home. Flexible and fun.

I have been an English teacher on Verbling for over two years now. Most of my students have been enjoyable to teach. The tech support is very responsive and helpful. I set my own hourly rate according to how busy I want to be during my available hours.

Pros

flexible, fun, work from home, set my own schedule

Cons

no benefits, but that's the way it goes with contract employment

International Students

Verbling team is composed by qualified native teachers. I have learnt very much from teaching students from different backgrounds (aged 9-65). Get to know students that have decided to learn Spanish for a wide range of reasons, with so many professional and personal interests and diverse mother tongues have helped me greatly to develop my capacity to be a flexible tutor, able to achieve my goals in terms of quality teaching despite the challenges that present every individual. Students from countries as diverse as: UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Ukraine, France, Italy, Singapore and Japan.

Verbling is a great opportunity for extra money.

It can be a little difficult to get started on Verbling because if you don't have any reviews, students tend not to "book" classes with you. When I first started working at Verbling, I felt like the management team was more supportive. At that time, they used Google hangouts. Since they have developed their own platform, they have done away with a lot of support positions and teachers are left to solve technical issues on their own...even though a lot of the time, it is a technical error that instructors have no idea how to fix. Regardless, Verbling gives teachers the freedom to set their own rates and schedule. Verbling kind of allows teachers to "set up shop" to teach ESL classes wherever they have an internet connection, which is amazing. Personally, I love the flexibility for teachers and students because it makes it a better learning experience for everyone. Teaching on Verbling has personally allowed me to meet so many people from all cultures and feel like I am making a difference by helping them improve their skills in English.

Pros

Flexibility in pay, Schedule

Cons

No technical support, Unsolicited fees

Not a bad at home job

Students fluctuate but I like the company, they are helpful and I enjoy working with them. I will continue to part time but it wasn't enough to support me full time due to competition.

Fair

Working at Verbling is enjoyable and as long as you treat it as a real job, you will get what you need out of it (fair pay and 5 stars). Beginning the job may take some time as students prefer to work with those who already have ratings and who charge less than $20/hr, but once you get recognized, you'll do well.

Pros

work from home, charge your own rate

Cons

no benefits, Verbling takes 15% and you still need to report taxes if youre a US citizen
