  Bookings

1. How long is each class?

Each class is guaranteed 45 minutes of active teaching time. After that, teachers may take a few minutes to leave comments. The total time commitment is 50 minutes per class.

2. How does scheduling work?

Teachers must enter their weekly availability for one month in advance. Teachers’ weekly schedules are sent out each Friday at 10 PM Beijing time. Teachers can be booked for classes during the week, no less than 24 hours in advance. Apex Education encourages all teachers to check their emails and their schedule in the system daily.

3. What hours should teachers be available to teach?

In order to maximize the number of classes you could get scheduled, we recommend you to be available for at least 6 hours (12-time slots per week at 40 minutes per time slot) during Beijing peak times. The following tends to be the most requested time periods in Beijing time: Monday-Friday 8-12pm for now. We do not require teachers to work full shifts, but having availability during the times mentioned above could ensure a higher possibility of being booked by our students.
