We received this message from a CIE grad:
"Dear Fellow CIE TESOL Graduates:
I am teaching online for a school that pays their tutors $18/hr starting. There are two 25-30 minute classes per hour, therefore the pay for each class is $9. The students are Chinese 1st through 9th graders. The times offered are 18:00-22:00 Beijing Time. Please see the attachment for more information.
If you're interested, please contact me at the email address below and I will send you more details. If you send me your resume so that I can refer you, I also offer my dedicated support through to the interview process - including familiarizing you with the teaching platform which will be used during the interview. (Interview includes a short demo class. Apparently, they have also added another demo after some training.) I also have a closed Facebook group for continued support for successful referrals.
As of today, this is what my company lists as the absolute minimum personal requirement (although things could change as they are growing fast):
"Minimum three-month or equivalent combination of ESL/EFL teaching experience, including part-time, volunteer, community and coaching activities"
(Of course, their "desired requirements" section does include a bachelor's degree and TESOL certificate, but this is not an absolute requirement.)
This school is very interested in CIE TESOL graduates. They are also really interested in hiring tutors with experience in ASL (American Sign Language), even without a TESOL certificate or ESL experience, so please feel free to send our friends involved with ASL. I can fill them in on the details. (Their ASL experience counts for the ESL experience.)
Please contact me and I will fill you in on more details and support you the best I can in the application/interview process.
