At Jason English, you will have to bid goodbye to strained smiles because in here, you can teach without the camera hogging at your face.
Many teachers – experienced and inexperienced – prefer to teach audio lessons. Out of all the blogs I’ve written here at work from home guide HOWPO, the List of Audio ESL Companies has received the most views and most response.
One of the ESL Schools I’ve included on the list is Jason English or JE.
JE is under the same management of English Tone. The application process in JE is slightly similar to English Tone. The minimum requirements in English Tone, however, is higher because you have to have at least three years of teaching experience.
If you have lesser than three years of teaching experience, then you are welcome at Jason English and reap the benefits/incentives English Tone teachers are going through.
What to know about Jason English?
The target market of JE is the Chinese second-language learners which include kids to professionals.
Similar with English Tone, the teaching/learning materials are provided by the company and can be accessed anytime for self-study.
What are the Requirements?
You are eligible for this position if you have the following as listed below:
- Has excellent English skills.
- At least one year of teaching experience
- Knowledgeable in Business English and English grammar.
- Has a Wired Internet Connection with at least 2 Mbps internet speed
- A working PC or Laptop/Headphone with Webcam and Noise-Cancelling Headset
- Can work with less supervision
- A quiet working place
- Committed to following the chosen schedule.
- Preferably College graduate.
- New teachers would have to affirm their preferred schedule before the training. Although JE follows a booking system, you have to be online during the committed/preferred schedule.
- It is preferable for new teachers to commit 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm on weekdays.
Let me show you the application process.

PENALTIES AND INCENTIVES
In the world of home-based teaching, teachers do not get a lot of benefits like other regular employees in the corporate world. The consolation we have – aside from having more freedom in our hands – is that we have incentives to motivate us to work even harder. They will be discussed to you on the orientation.
Penalties for absences aren’t that a lot especially if your absences do not fall above 10% of the total number of lessons. The specific amount of deductions as penalties would be discussed to you during the orientation.
NOTE: New Teachers enjoy paid lessons (whether the slot is booked or not) to a total of 2hours for every day you worked. For example:
#of days worked for the cut-off: 8 days
180php * 2 hours = 300php * 8 days = 2,400php
That’s 2,400php on top of your salary! This incentive is good for TWO MONTHS.
If you are looking for a company;
-To help you develop your skills in teaching,
-That lets you earn more as you are seasoned with time and relevant experience,
THEN LOOK NO MORE!
