Be very careful signing anything... Look out for Scams from the schools!


Recommended Posts

YES schools well try to pull a scams on you!  How?  

I have a BA & MEng and the school I was working for two months, was asking me back because the students loved how I was teaching them... Only 12 hrs a week (4 days), for 25,000 a month. Not bad for my area in Thailand. Now for my new contract with the school, they wanted me to do 22 hrs a week for the same pay per month??? (This was a private college here in my town).  Baht in there pocket, not in my pocket! SCAM!!!

I told them "HELL NO" So now they are looking for a new teacher to teach English.

 

Now I have a friend who is Thai with a Master in ED who was making only 10,000 baht a month at the same school, now she is in America making 10,000 baht a day at a coffee shop!

Where's the scam?

If you got 25k for a 12-hours week, you were overpaid comparing to other teachers.

Teachers here are making 35,000 and up for 14 hrs.  When $$$ is going in their pocket, and not yours… That is a scam!

If they give you a contract offering a specified salary, you can sign it or not. It's up to you.

If they want to pay less than you expected it ain't no scam.

A scam would be if they'd offered you say 35k and then payed only 25.

Amusing if an English teacher does not know the meaning of "scam", isn't it?
