Who We Are

GVE Online Education Inc. is a Toronto-based startup committed to helping students in China improve their English listening and speaking skills. Since the beginning of 2015, we have been providing an online learning platform as well as live tutoring sessions to students from Grades 1 through 9.

What We Are Looking For:

We are seeking experienced and enthusiastic English tutors to deliver our online live tutoring lessons. Our tutors are passionate about the future of online education. They understand how to make every lesson exciting and entertaining by using their sense of humor, musical stylings, voice acting, or just their radiant personalities.

Competitive Pay Rate

Our hourly rate is 20 CAD/hour or 18 USD/hour (the equivalent of 10 CAD/per lesson or 9 USD/per lesson, considering each lesson takes about 30 min).

Our lessons occur between 6AM to 10AM Eastern Daylight Time, Monday to Saturday. Select the times that you are available and spend the rest of the day relaxing with friends/family, building a bird house, crocheting a hat or other equally productive activities.

Tutoring online can be a challenge. We provide you professional development and orientation in mastering the technology and in delivering our unique online lessons.
