What is Palfish? It’s is an app for Android or iPhone to teach ESL online to kids or adults. You can also use a tablet.
A lot of people ask me about alternative companies. I checked out this company because I wanted to be able to refer people to a reputable school for non-native speakers and those who do not have a teaching degree.
To download the app, first you need to register your phone number by filling out the desktop form, then go to your phone and download the app by searching Palfish.
English speaking app
The lessons for adults are free talk and you can set your own price.
get paid to chat
Anyone can get paid to chat for the adult free talk lessons. You can be a non-native speaker. Also, you don’t need a degree for the free talk classes.
For the kid’s course you do need to be a degree and a native English speaker.
Citizens from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland Citizens make $16-$22 an hour for the kid’s course.
Non-native speakers and non-degree holders can do Free Talk classes and you set your own rate of up to 5 Yuan per minute.
When you recruit you earn a $45 bonus for the official kids course.
The reviews say that your hourly rate can increase based on the amount of classes you teach per month. The cons are that you do have to promote yourself to get students. You promote yourself by posting on the app in the moments section. If you’ve used WeChat, it’s similar to that.
The interview is different than what you’d do at other companies such as Gogokid, VIPKID or iTutorGroup. You will record a video of yourself if you want to become a kid’s teacher, but you can only teach kids if you have a degree and are a native speaker. You cannot start the interview (demo video) for the kid’s courses until the company accepts your general application information.

Overall, the Palfish teacher application is easy and straight-forward.
Palfish only pays you with Payoneer. Honestly, the most difficult part of the application for me was setting up Payoneer. I had to attempt it three or four times on the app, which was time consuming. I recommend setting up Payoneer on your desktop and then connecting it to Palfish.
