ALO7.com was founded by Pengkai Pan, who holds a PHD from Media Lab of MIT. Its initial angel investors include digital pioneer Professor Nicholas Negroponte, who is MIT Media Lab Founder, and several international venture capital companies, including Fortunate 500 companies.
ALO7 is the largest digital ELT (English Language Teaching) product and solutions provider in China with more than 10M registered users and more than 5,000 partner schools over 200 cities. We are revolutionizing the way English is learned and taught throughout China, from how schools are managed to how schools and homes are connected in the mobile Internet age.
Alo7 aims to be the largest online education platform in 2018 as large educational institutions in China are all Alo7ís partners. Currently these partner schools are using Alo7ís digital curriculum in the classroom setting and they start to offer Alo7ís online tutoring services to their existing student bases with an aggregated number of easily exceeding one million.
Tutors will tutor English as a Second Language to overseas students in China (age 5 to 15). Tutors will be provided with the opportunity to experience Alo7ís cutting edge tutoring platform and interactive content, which is easy to operate, fun and interactive, a combination of arts and technology, and a reflection of MIT Media Lab experiences.
Tutoring sessions might be one-on-one, one-on-three, or group sessions.
Your bookings are done by schools, and they provide a steady number of classes, as they have a steady base of students.
The class you tutor is a review of what they've learned in the classroom. Such tutoring is very important for the students as they are eager to learn from English speakers who speak English at an idiomatic level.
The key difference between Alo7 and many other online tutoring platforms is that your students are from schools. It is an offline to online experience. Your classes will be booked regularly by schools, and you won't have to worry if your number of classes will vary week to week, which is quite common with other tutoring platforms.
How Alo7 works:
Tutors can choose a block of time slots within the peak tutoring time frame and tutor as little as 6 hours per week, and as many as 21 hours per week during the peak tutoring time.
The number of peak tutoring hours on a weekly basis are proposed by you. Once you commit to the time slots, classes will be booked and you will have a steady of flow of students on a weekly basis.
All applicants will be recommended to tutor for a minimum of 6 hours per week on a steady basis within the peak tutoring time frame.
We also provide other projects to qualified tutors to work such as evaluating teachers' performance, working on presentations, and doing our resume screening. These projects are all paid. Qualified tutors in our program can work more during other time slots which do not have to be peak tutoring time.
A monthly income of $1500 for this part time independent contractor opportunity out of your own home is achievable with our program for steady and qualified tutors and teachers. I.e. if a tutor works 2 hours per day for 7 days per week, she/he could make close to $1000 per month; if a tutor works 3 hours per day for 7 days per week, she/he could make close to $1500 per month.
