I’m new to the teaching English abroad community. I am an American with a BA. I’m currently working on getting my TEFL certificate online and just got an offer from Gloria English School, which I’ve heard generally good things about, in terms of flexibility. After reading many, many discussions about the pay, I found their offer pay extremely low (think <200 NTD/hour) and even after all the bonuses, it still seems borderline low.
Is this how much new tutors usually get paid? I also want to emphasize that I am an ABC and they did tell me that parents might understood me (heard discrimination against English teachers with Asian faces are rather intense). Are they just bs’ing me and underpaying me because of my Asian face? Can anyone shed some insight?
