    Pros

    I really do enjoy working for DaDaABC, it is fun. The children are excellent people to work with.
    Excellent work/life balance.
    Teaching 1:1 provides many excellent opportunites to really help to see the students developing.
    Lots of rewarding incentives.
    Once employed you feel part of a little community.
    Good tech support and a stable teachnig platform.

    Cons

    Only 2 minutes between some classes, and sometimes classes organised at very short notice.
    Depending upon where you live the time difference could cause the hours to be a problem, but not an issue for me!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, please keep the incentives coming and try to increase the hoiday benefits.

    I have been working at DaDaABC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I wish i had found DaDaABC earlier in my life! such a fantastic company to work for who really look after their teachers! the main pro is the children! the adorable little faces who come to learn english. you get paid half your hourly rate if you dont have classes within your contracted working hours. DaDa fills your schedule for you and provides all of the class materials! such a fun job and never feels like hard work!

    Cons

    no paid holidays or holiday allowance and i truely wish there was more hours available on weekdays so i could do this fulltime! no merchandise to buy

    Advice to Management

    I would love to be able to buy DaDa branded merchandise like the character teddy bears, dada t-shirts and hoodies, cups, resourses and posters! this would really help us look more professional also some more advice to ambitious teachers about career progression

    22 Feb 2018 – Marketing Manager

    Dear teacher, we understand many people have not learned about DaDaABC yet but are glad you found us when you did! We hope you continue to grow with the company and will keep our teachers up to date... More

    I have been working at DaDaABC part-time

    Pros

    I have had such a positive experience with Dadaabc so far
    - The interview process was quick and easy
    - Easy to use system where all the information you need is kept
    - There is always help and guidance if you need it
    - Flexible hours working from home
    - The job is fun and rewarding
    - There is always incentives for staff

    Cons

    The only con I have found so far is one that simply can not be helped and that is the time zone difference from where I am based in the UK.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the amount of incentives offered

    I have been working at DaDaABC part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great resources. You are trusted to TEACH your way with the material, and some similar companies aren’t like this. It’s flexible and you can add your own fun activities. Excellent software/management system. In my experience, friendly/helpful staff. Students are lovely. You only teach one student at a time.

    Cons

    In my present situation, I can honestly say, for me, there aren’t any.

    I have been working at DaDaABC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good hourly rate
    Fully booked schedule
    Paid half rate for any time not booked
    Working from home
    Nice children with interest in learning

    Cons

    No holiday or sick pay

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try and connect more with the teachers and offer more personal time for them so they feel part of the company. At the moment I do not have a line manager and any interaction I have with the company is never with the same person and feels very anonymous.

    I have been working at DaDaABC part-time

    Pros

    Regular support
    Getting paid for standby

    Cons

    Not always classes on but you'll have to stay at your computer anyway
    No early morning weekday classes

    Advice to Management

    More feedback please. Difficult to know how to get more classes and retain students.
