Most companies have some sort of bonus pay for things like attendance, good ratings, and submitting teaching materials. Some companies like WHALES ENGLISH have a compensation rate for ‘unbooked’ lessons so if you have no learners but you have been booked they still pay you a reduced fee, whereas others like ITUTORGROUP only pay you for the lessons you teach but have a better bonus system in place. Some specialist companies offer $50 per hour or more. These can be hard to find and depend on experience.
