    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Engoo Tutors part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It has a large student base (I stayed fully booked), and it had a lot of great materials to use with students.

    Cons

    You're not allowed to have a true connection with your students, which is awful when you're truly caring and wanting to help them learn. You make less than min wage with no pay increases ever. You get money taken away whenever you have cancelled lessons. You're forced to submit post-lesson notes, which can take up so much time, so sometimes, I was only getting paid $5 or less for an hour of tutoring/notes. My hard work was appreciated greatly by students, but the pay is absolutely awful.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Engoo Tutors part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The students are really great. They are the only reason why it hurts me to leave the company. Also even though I didn't get it, the incentive available for new teachers from some countries is great, though the rules make it almost unattainable. Lastly, the admins are timely in their responses though are quite powerless.

    Cons

    The salary is one of the lowest I've come across. $1.4 for teachers is too low. Their teaching site consumes 8 times the data I use on another site and to think that their pay is not good, you end up spending about 30% or more of what you work there in the internet if you're not careful. Their rules are unnecessarily inflexible. Even when I would explain to then sincerely of why I cancelled some lessons and pleaded for cancellation exemption, I was always turned down on the pretest of not having a good proof despite me explaining how poor (with proof) the costumer services of the internet and electricity companies in my country are. Their site makes unintended class cancellations very likely. No notifications (both written and sound) when you're reserved. You have to strenuously refresh the page after every 15 minutes to the top of the hour. From now on, I'll be going back to Native Camp a company that's better than Engoo in almost every aspect.
