Alo7 was started by Dr. Pengkai Pan, PhD graduate from MIT Lab. Alo7 is the largest K-12 digital ESL curriculum developer. Our award-winning ESL curriculum is used by over 5000 schools in China.
You will get the opportunity to tutor English to Chinese students with Alo7’s cutting-edge platform & interactive curriculum.
Your students have already learned the materials ahead of time in the classroom. Your tutoring is more of a review of what they have learned. This makes online tutoring with Alo7 much easier. Small group classes (1 tutor to 3+ students) make tutoring more fun and interactive.
All of your classes are booked by schools that offer more opportunities for steady classes and no last-minute cancellations.
We offer Class Delivery Workshops (CDW) to help you get used to our platform and curriculum. CDW is paid to you as a new tutor onboard package.
We also launched our Facebook group to support all new applicants and want-to-be tutors.
