What Schools are Online Teachers Working for in May 2022?

Following up after the recent poll on The TeachersXchange Facebook Group.

It’s interesting to see that most of the Teachers in this group are either Freelancing or working for Create a profile schools.

This is a big change since the China shutdown, in the past Freelancers were the minority. The policies in china and the closure of the mega schools created a lot of opportunities for those who can market themselves.

I am developing a new App that will help Teachers who Freelance, Check it our here: Oncher.App

The most popular Create a profile school was AMAZING TALKER, closely followed by ITALKI, I am guessing this is due to AMAZING TALKER having a faster and easier onboarding process. In my opinion, Italki is the better create a profile platform.

ESL China Update: Three Months On

It`s been three months since the shock announcement by the Chinese government in July, effectively banning foreign teachers from teaching from outside China. Since then many online teachers’ lives have been turned upside down as they contemplated their next move.
Some held tightly to the raft, waiting for the bitter end, many chose to jump ship before it sank; joining the mass exodus to other companies or branching out on their own, and others tried desperately to maintain contact with their former students, hoping to continue classes and maintain the bond they had formed over the years.
