If working as an online English teacher for the cutest kids ever is something you would like to do, here is a little bit of information on SnapLingo and how you can get yourself hired.
Working hours; you need to be available for a minimum of 8 hours a week. Unlike many other ESL companies, Snaplingo assigns students to teachers according to their availability. This means that you don’t have to work too hard to sell yourself in order to get bookings. Bookings are done by the team so rest assured that you will always have lessons.
Please note that your lessons will build up over time so if you are in a hurry to make a quick buck, this might not be the job for you.
Salary: they pay a basic salary of USD 7-8 per 25 minutes lesson. (USD 14-16 per hour). If you are on time for all your lessons, you get an extra USD 50c per lesson. If you don’t take any leave during the month, you get an extra USD 1. If you have a 5-star rating you 5-star extra USD 50c. If a student signs up after a demo lesson with you, you get USD 5 per sign up. Salaries are paid on the 5th of each month.
Deductions: There are lots of deductions. If you are late for even one lesson, you will not get the extra USD 50 per lesson. If you don’t show up for a lesson or cancel less than 24 hours before the lesson, USD 5 will be deducted from your salary.
Colleagues: We have a teacher messaging and support portal where all teachers interact, get to know each other and help each other out with work-related issues. Everyone is just so friendly.
The Pupils: The children are between 4-12 years of age. They are what makes SnapLingo and ESL teaching such a fun job. Most of them are very brilliant, clever and sometimes even cheeky but in an adorable way. They are respectful, polite and just the sweetest kids I have had the pleasure of teaching.
Teaching is done through an APP. It is easy and rathestraightforwardd. Lessons are 25 minutes long and the course/curriculum is uploaded onto the APP for each child so don’t worry about what you will teach.
Holidays: You get two weeks leave for every six months you work. This leave is unpaid.
It is important for you to know that applying for a job with Snaplingo (or any other ESL company) with a recommendation from someone already working with SnapLingo is the quickest way to get a response for an interview.
Fortunately, they are hiring at the moment so all you have to do is send an email with your CV and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I get paid for every hired teacher that I recommend, so if you wish, please do mention that I recommended the company to you. (Ps. Your application will be processed immediately if you mention that I recommended you)
There is not much information out there about Snaplingo so I am thinking about making a few videos to explain how to apply, the application process, how to prepare and pass the interview and the classroom demo. Let me know if you would like me to post some videos.
If you need some help and/or advice on applying, just send me message here and I will help out as much as possible.
