Common Questions

First Future is an online English education institution; we are not an agency who simply recruits Teachers for other schools. We have our own Curriculum Development Department, Engineering & Technology Department and self-developed online teaching platform. We are a B2B company with more than 1200 Partner Schools, we provide teaching services, supervision and performance management to our Partner Schools.

Absolutely! As long as you have a reliable internet provider and can receive payments through one of the methods we use then you can teach from anywhere.

There are 2 types of teaching schedule available:

Fixed Shift

Under a Fixed Shift Teachers will be given a guaranteed working schedule week-to-week. Teachers will be paid for every hour of this schedule regardless of whether they have classes or not.

The exact working times of these schedules will vary depending on the Project you are selected for.

The minimum required time commitment for a Fixed shift is:
  • At least 4 days/week
  • At least 2 hours per day
  • Minimum of 8 hours per week

Most Fixed shifts offer around 15 hours per week, with some offering significantly more depending on a Teachers availability.

Fixed Shift Teachers should be willing and able to commit to their working schedule for at least 3 months upon agreeing to the shift.

Flexi Shift

Under a Flexi working shift Teachers will be able to open and close their own working times as desired. To maximize the number of classes you receive we advise that Teachers always open their availability for at least the next month. This will allow our Students to book you more easily as our Student’s learn with the same Teacher for all of their classes.

  • Classes can be scheduled with less than 30-minutes’ notice
  • Taught and Student No Show classes will be paid in full
  • Cancelled classes (with more than 2 hours’ notice) will not be paid
  • Available slots with a booked classes cannot be closed by the Teacher, only available slots with no booked class can be deactivated by the Teacher

There are no minimum hours for a Flexi Shift and Teachers can open as many hours as they want as long as they can commit to teaching classes which are scheduled.

Teaching hours are currently available for any of the following times:

Monday to Friday: 17:00-23:00
Saturday and Sunday: 08:00-23:00

All times are in China Standard Time (GMT+8)

If you haven’t received any feedback within 3 working days, there may have been an issue with your application. You may contact our Team directly through Skype by adding: First Future Recruitment Our recruitment Team are available from 09:00-20:00 Monday to Sunday (All times are in China Standard Time (GMT+8))

One of the things which makes First Future different is the range of class types we teach. We have 1-to-1, 1vN (2-6 Students studying from their own homes) and Group (6 or more Students studying at school in a classroom with each other). Our classes cover general conversation all the way up to specialist test and college entrance exam preparation. This allows us to work with Teachers who have a wide range of experience and qualifications.

Our Students range in age from 4 to 60 but most of our Students are K-12 learners.

Our most common class types are 25-minute conversational English classes.

Teachers will be offered a starting salary of $8-12/hour base rate plus up to $4/hour for Teachers selected for Special Projects depending on their qualifications and experience. Pay rates will be agreed after the Interview.

We also offer all Teachers:

up to $3/hour in performance related bonuses through our Monthly Class Bonus
+$1 for every group class taught
+$1 weekend incentive for every hour worked on weekends

Don’t take our word for it, hear from our Teachers!
