I absolutely love working for Whales English. They have provided me a way to work from anywhere and enabled me to work consistently for the past 19 months.
Whales English is the perfect company for those looking for stability and who like to know what they're doing every week! I have a schedule planned over 30 weeks. This means I know pretty much what I'll earn every month. For me, with bills to pay and kids to look after, this has been a blessing!
Their regular class structure means that you teach the same kids every week and over a 30 week period. You can really connect with your students, and they very often renew, so potentially you can teach students for years!
I'm now on my third block with many of my students, and to see their progress is so rewarding!
You can take holidays, so don't panic. You're allowed 2 x 3 to 14 days every 6 month period and 1 -2 days every 6 months period. You can also have several emergency leaves during your contract.
The curriculum is very good. We use National Geographic's Reach and Oxford Reading Tree's Chip, Kipper and Biff books! These are a huge hit with students. Whales has also developed their English Starter Course for young beginners. It's great fun to teach and super rewarding.
