Review: Q Kids is an online platform that teaches English language skills to Chinese kids between the ages of 5 and 12. Each lesson requires 30 minutes and earns you between $8 (base pay) and $10 (with two $1 bonuses for performance and attendance). Teachers are paid once a month — on the 15th — via direct deposit. Teachers are preferred, but anyone with a good personality and strong English language skills can apply. The lessons are all online, so you can work from anywhere. Lessons are prepared for you; you simply must be familiar with the prepared plan and the teaching software. The platform provides training, for which you are paid at the $16 hourly base rate. Classes typically include one to four students.

The catch: English lessons are offered on Chinese time (predictably), so many U.S. residents will find that the hours are either very early or very late (depending on where you are). Specifically:

7 days a week – Morning Eastern Time (AM – EST): 6:40-7:10, 7:20-7:50, 8:00-8:30, 8:40-9:10Plus Friday and Saturday – Night Eastern Time (PM – EST): 8:40-9:10, 9:20-9:50, 10:00-10:30, 10:40-11:10, 11:20-11:50.

That said, if you want to work from home and don’t mind (or even prefer) odd hours, we consider this a better-than-average opportunity. Also check out VIPKID.

What their teachers say (from Glassdoor)

QKids offers great part-time hours that allow you to finish teaching every early in the day.The QKids staff is amazing, and I cannot rave enough about how wonderful they treat their employees and how kind they are to work for.The children are very sweet and enjoyable to work with.With small classes, it’s very easy to interact and provide one-on-one attention during class.There is no lesson planning or grading-a teacher’s dream!This job has great (and consistent) pay and scheduling. Though it can be a struggle to be engaging at 6am, but it is definitely worth it.

Reliable, intuitive, easy, stress-free, fun, worthwhile, rewarding, fair pay, good management. But hours are limited; full time only available in the summer and winter holidays.

Pays on time, great cooperation with admins and trainers, nice referral bonus, other income opportunities, classes are prepared in advance, company fills classes with students, competitive pay, contests throughout the year, all-expense paid trips to China for those who are accepted, fun classes, and there are three months where there are more hours which can double or triple your take home pay. But you are only paid monthly, class schedule sometimes change on short notice, some children are not placed in correct classes,

+Fun virtual environment+Mostly requires zero prep before class+Kids have been wonderful and LOVE to learn+In depth training and continued training throughout work+$16/hr base pay $1 bonus for good reviews by students and another $1 bonus if teaching more then 8hrs a week.
