ESL Teaching At DaDaABC Overview
The most important part of this job is teaching, so let’s cover that first. Once you’re hired, you’ll work one-on-one with Chinese children aging from 5-16 teaching them English. All teaching sessions take place in DaDaABC’s teaching platform using their teaching materials (you should review them before each lesson.) There’re three types of teaching sessions: Trial Classes, Elective Classes, and Major Classes. I explain them all below:
Trial Classes: These are classes for students either studying with DaDaABC for the first time or are looking for a full-time teacher. Last around 14 minutes.
Elective Classes: Extra Curriculum classes focused on specific topics. Last around 30 minutes.
Major Classes: Your regular students in schedule time slots. Last around 30 minutes.
The goal is for you to have regular students in scheduled slots each week. This means you’ll be able to work with the same students over and over again progressing with them, instead of switching from random students.
One topic that comes up with tutoring sites is what if a student does not show up to a scheduled class? They ask you to stay in the lesson, report it, and you’ll have special pay.

DaDaABC Application Process
The first step is to fill out an application on their website. It consists of basic information and your contact information. They list on their FAQs that you should hear back within three days, if you don’t, you may not have been included in the recruitment process. They list contact information you can get ahold of to find out more information.
Once you hear back, the next step is an initial interview. They conduct the interview through Skype or WeChat. If all goes well, you’ll be given a login for the next part of the application process, internet connection test, and program training.
The next step is what they call TPR or Total Physical Response Training; this step aims to determine your teaching style and develop your teaching skills. Once you’re done, you’ll need to watch some videos of other teachers and then you’ll have a demo class.
If all goes well you’ll sign a contract, go through a probation performance review, and then you’re hired.
You can see a full list of the application process below:
How Much Does DaDaABC Pay?
Pay is dependent on a few factors, but you can make up to $25 an hour. Your pay is determined when you sign the contract based on your TPR training results and your demo class performance.
They do mention that there’re bonuses for high-quality teaching along with bringing on new students to the company.

*Some payment methods include a transaction fee. An overseas transfer will take 2-5 days.
Since you’ll be teaching students mostly in China, there’re specific times you’ll need to work, but the schedule seems to be flexible. You’re required to work at least 2 hours a day and two days a week (not consecutive days.)
They offer classes every day; you’ll sign up for shifts in the following time slots: Monday to Friday 6:00pm-9:10pm (Beijing time)， Saturday and Sunday：9:00am-12:10am, 2:00pm-4:06pm, 6:00pm-9:10pm (Beijing time)
