Overall okay

The pay is low (and you get paid for each minute you talk and no bonuses), and there are no opportunities for advancement, but you can make your own schedule.

Poor petty money starved donkeys

Petty company third world standards. They dont respect teachers and rules penalize without proper hearing. Avoid at all cost. Their students misbehave and they don't take your side. The student has 100% control and the students are based in Middle East and they talk about religion and not about education. It is very difficult to keep their students happy for a very experienced teacher such as me.

Mentally draining

This company is terrible first off they don’t screen anyone so you may get an offender showing their parts or you may have an offender teaching your child. The rating system is absolutely atrocious. It makes no sense what so ever I believe someone with a kindergarten education level may of came up with the system. They fire people for unjust reasons and offer no protection of mental health and well being to their teachers. They are very unprofessional unskilled and simply a disgrace to work for. The literal only pro of working for Cambly is getting paid weekly.

Flexible schedule, no benefits or guaranteed salary

Some students are serious about learning, while other students may be inappropriate with female tutors to the point of exposing themselves. In any case, if students are banned, they can still create new accounts and call you again. This is a conversation platform. Some students will be respectful of your time, while others may expect you to design lessons which are unpaid.

Laidback, awesome for supplementing income in developed nations, good pay if living in cheaper places.

Set your own schedule. Chat with clients who become like friends/family. You will be forced to think about English in ways you never would have considered. Just don’t burn yourself out.
