Palfish- A great experience from Teacher Sav

What was the name of your online company? PalFish   What were the working hours like? Available teaching hours are from 6am to midnight 7 days a week.

I have always been able to be booked until about 11pm on any given day and on weekdays usually I can get bookings starting at 2-3pm on weekdays and kids often want to take classes from 7-9am before they go to school as well.   How did you feel the company treated you? -like a person…

PalFish – beautiful in its simplicity.

PalFish offers two different sections. ‘Free Talk’ and Official Kids Course (OKC). What is free talk? Free talk is exactly as it sounds. You get paid for just chatting to Chinese ‘students’ online. It looks like a couple of online companies such as DaDa and First Future have adopted the name ‘Free Talk’ because of its success. However, make no mistake, PalFish is the original and the real deal. As the original, PalFish is of course beautiful in its simplicity. For free talk it’s literally a question of registering with the app, pushing the ‘Start Tutoring’ button and waiting for…
