Just listen to that name: Imagination Education. Sounds like something you'd say to a bushy-tailed psychology major while holding a piece of candy out the side of an unmarked van.


Oh!

Warm regards,

Imagine there's no education,
It isn't hard to do
No grades to study for
And no diploma too
Imagine all the students living life being fleeced

You, you may say
I'm a foreign teacher, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join CFTU
And the world will be paid in "won"

Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it's breakin' my heart you're leavin'
Baby, I'm grievin'
But if you wanna leave, take good care
I hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breakin' my heart in two
Because I never wanna see you a sad girl
Don't be a bad girl
But if you wanna leave, take good care
I hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

I heard back from this outfit a few days ago. They told me a few months back with I interviewed via skype that they would pay me 300 per hour. I heard nothing for a while, then recently was offered a single class, 2 or 3 times per week for 2 or 3 hours per class, at 200 per hour. I declined. Can't trust this place.

I''ve just recently looked at their contract. 16 pages of fines and "carpe diem" related materials.

One-sided contract. I wouldn't sign, even though in practice it may be ok. It could be that the school has attracted too many flakes in the past, and they want to cover themselves for worst-case scenarios. Still, I don't like the punishments especially for things that could be outside the control of the teacher, and/or easily abused, such as student complaints. And intellectual property rights? Way too much legalese for me.

I am not sure the contract is legal.

I met them and was surprised how unprofesisonal they are. They wanted everything. Lots of options so you dont have to work with them.
