This company is very fair, but they require you to do a lot more than most employers. As with most Online ESL jobs, you are more of an independent contractor than an employee for all intents and purposes.

The system of communication is not the best, but they do get back to me fairly quickly. It is a bit impersonal though,


Base pay and incentives system are a major drag on employee satisfaction. Also using mostly low-quality teaching material and lesson plans.


Recommended if you want a steady pay-cheque while you learn the ropes of teaching English online. Or if you're looking for a part-time job and you have free mornings and weekends.

Consultants can cancel a session an hour before the start time with no penalty. We can ask for leave anytime we want, and for as how long as we want without being terminated. The management is very supportive and friendly.

Online English Teacher (Former Employee) - Toronto, ON
Don't bother with iTutorGroup. They make you teach mostly demo classes and 45 minute sessions which pays less than minimum wage. After the company went public in November 2019, many teachers are not able to get their time slots filled with students, so expect to work part-time only. The teaching materials are too short and lack content. If you want to make less than a living wage rate than work for this awful company.
Pros
None
Cons
Poorly managed, Unethical company, Extremely low pay, Dishonest
