Why here? A close friend of mine worked as a head teacher at one of their centers in Beijing. Now he works as an online English teacher for them. I have met many of their teachers from different centers, and everyone agrees: if you don’t meet all the legal requirements to teach English in China, this is a great center. This center is willing to hire people on tourist and business visas but is also very trustworthy. They always pay on time, and actively work to prevent their teachers from getting deported.
