Can be a good

I started working for preply and was overwhelmed with new students. My first month of working I had no time off and was doing lessons all the time. In retrospect I would have started out at a higher rate for my lessons. The materials that are provided are okay, but I usually just use my own materials.

Preply is ok

You can choose yoir own schedule, which is great. However, when you first start, Preply's commission is high, like 30%. The more you work, the less their cut is. Their professional development trainings are good and frequent.

Not a good option for experienced language teachers

4 key points: ~ Good if you need experience to learn the ropes of language teaching BUT ~ Takes a long time to develop a reputation & so your rate stays low (in order to get learners) ~ Most learners don't want to pay much, so it's difficult to earn a decent rate ~ Preply takes 33%(!!!) of your payment charge to learners - keeping it attractive for their customers but TERRIBLE for teachers trying to earn a living

It's okay!

It's okay. You've got to be patient before you get students. The main thing that is terrible about this company is that you don't get paid for trial lessons so you actually end up doing a lot of free work. Like hours and hours of free classes. And they take a lot of commission as well. The support team is great though they always reply super quickly.

Independent Contractor

Hard to get paid a livable wage. Nice to set your own flexible schedule. Some students a challenge to work with. Some professional development opportunities.
