51Talk hiring 30,000 Filipino online teachers; earn more than P60K per month

MANILA, Philippines – China's largest online English education company is now in need of 30,000 more Filipino teachers as demand for English-speaking teachers has increased amid the coronavirus pandemic.

51Talk hiring 30,000 more Filipino online teachers

According to 51Talk, there is a shortage of 500,000 foreign English-language teachers in China. The company said it now has 10 million registered students, and more than 20,000 partner teachers in the Philippines.

This will be a good opportunity for the Filipinos. Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said on May 20 that an estimate of around 4 to 5 million Filipinos will be unemployed due to COVID-19 crisis, following the month-long nationwide lockdown.

Due to the pandemic, learning online has then become the only choice.

"There is probably never been a better time than right now to teach English online," founder and CEO of 51Talk, Jack Huang said.

Many online teachers in the Philippines typically work from home, which insulated them from the home quarantine measures that have devastated other businesses.

At the same time, being an online teacher can be very rewarding. In 2019, the average monthly salary in the Philippines was about 50.6 thousand Philippine pesos, meanwhile a 51Talk online teacher earns more than 60,000 pesos per month.

“Due to the increasing number of students in 51Talk, the home-based job is very profitable and meaningful,” said Selphie, a five-year online teacher with 51Talk. “Not only do we get to teach regularly but we also get to learn more about Chinese culture from students of all ages. It has always been fun exchanging ideas with them and knowing that you're helping them talk to the world more confidently, one class at a time.”

“The pandemic has put thousands of jobs at risk, and this has been particularly hard for the Philippines’ single mothers,” Sophia, a single mother of two commented. “51Talk brings light to our lives. As English is my mother tongue, the only thing I need to be an online English teacher is a reliable internet connection and a laptop.”

As Huang see it, Filipino have natural advantages to be online English teacher.

“The Philippines is one of the best English-speaking countries in Asia. Filipino teachers have standard American pronunciation. More than 1 million Filipinos work at call centres in the United States,” said Jack Huang.
