I’ve only worked two days and have made a great amount for just starting out.
The negative things I’ve seen are simply not applicable for those who are dead serious about making a living teaching on line.
You can easily block the creepiest who seem to imply dating only, and the work IS there for people who want it.
It was fairly easy for me to get accepted as I am a preferred native speaker and I also have years of experience teaching young people.
I proved my abilities in the mock teaching class and clarified all in the follow up and interview.
I don’t involve myself in big teaching groups as that’s where most of the negative attitudes are.
You can post moments, do live streams and podcasts to market yourself. It’s hard work, but you get people by doing that and giving quality to your official sessions.
You can also create groups and your own sessions to sell as well as have chats with students and get paid.
You get out of it what you put into PalFish. I have created a life of freedom for myself! The only downside is the time difference, but to me it’s worth doing this as opposed to a 9-5 job that you hate.
If you are not disciplined and just expect to show up and get paid when you log on and have people come to you, without putting in effort, then this would not be for you. If you can, however see and embrace opportunities and to travel to combine work and play from anywhere in the world...PalFish could Definitely be for you.
The good and the bad
After 3 months I've made 0.90 cents. When trying to start your own classes, they barely get approved. If your phone is on silent and someone calls, it still rings and bypasses your silent mode. When you do a class, it's pretty interesting to hear the comments and questions of the Chinese students, who by the way are mainly adults. But, you may easily get banned like many, if your call gets monitored and you answer political questions. I've already caught a lot of sexuality in the forum. So, I also take it, this is some how being used as a dating app more than a make money and teach. Don't have a problem with it as everyone are adults posting on the forums. But, I guess it beats paying a dating service, as here you get payed when contacted and plenty of girls are constantly posting with their accounts clearly stating they want to meet only English speaking men. And guys only want to meet English women. Over all, not to bad, but, you won't make much money. Perhaps you'll make enough to buy a candy bar after a few months of use. Your better of getting a real online teaching job based out of the US, CA or U.K. That way you have an actual class with already assigned students and a guaranteed paycheck that provides an actual living.
Great side gig
Mostly I’m writing because I just read a really negative review of palfish! I started in December. It was slow at first but I quickly was approved for the official kids course. I made $400 in December and $1400 in January. This is just a side gig for me, I work as a full time language teacher during the day. I usually teach for two hours in the morning before school and occasionally I teach evening classes.
I admit that there are some frustrations with the app, mainly because some of it is in Chinese. It helps to be experienced in learning another language so you know how to navigate a language that you don’t understand.
I would only recommend this job to people who are approachable and experienced in teaching. It is not ideal if you are immediately relying on the income because it takes a while to build up your student base.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
