March report of continued abuses by Native Camp
5 months ago.
Institute Review
Native Camp Asia.
The pros
You can work anytime if you're a native speaker; not so much if English is not your primary language. Students are available 24/7 and materials, some with bad English, are provided.
The cons
A) Home based teachers and native speakers are discriminated against by the office staff and a target of fake students.

B) Fake students are the ones who speak in a fake accent (sometimes), have nearly perfect English (often), say something snarky or cute and cut the class. And have connections or relations with NC office staff to deliberately hamstring home-based native speakers to lower ratings and blunt bonus opportunities. This happens all the time in BPOs and is a habit or considered "part of the culture" or that's the narrative.

C) I have an IT background: NC's connection issues emanate from Japan not sister countries but NC blames the teacher (usually home-based) and deactivates accounts based on this method. Also during a class the screen on the site glitched and the message "eat it" appeared in the teaching materials. A teacher or student did this?

D) NC has no direct contact number for home-based teachers to air complaints or ask questions; a deliberate faceless and cowardly way to run a business.

E) Around the internet where NC has multiple complaints they attempt to "pack" positive posts around the complaints and arrange for the site manager to "archive" complaints.
Also NC NEVER addresses the complaints but instead lauds the poster for adding the message to the timeline.

F) The language in the online ads say tutors can make up to P80,000 per month teaching; this flat propaganda and a lie. When home-based teachers attempt to establish a working routine to accomplish a regular income NC deactivates the account and gives vague information or reasons.

G) China will be opening its schools, university, colleges, etc, completely in September; NC will be competing with all of that and the online schools added daily. I'd suggest cleaning up your behavior before expanding recruiting tactics.
Advice to Management
Your continued abuses of home-based teachers and propaganda regarding income potential have not abated. Until you stop your heinous BPO operation tactics you will continuously be monitored.
Institution Location
Philippines, Singapore, Japan.
Relationship
I represent teachers and tutors who have been abused by online "teaching platforms" who openly abuse educators. I have connections with the CFT Watchers and other watchdog groups in Asia.

    Tutors/teachers are not paid for all classes, no direct contact, responses on their intranet can take up to a week, IT issues are pushed back to the tutor/teacher, recent pay client change has created pay issues with some teachers not being paid for weeks. Still has a fake student issue regarding damaging tutor/teacher ratings. "Students" still manipulating the system to get free classes and the tutor is not paid. Abusive or rude "students" tolerated by the platform and faulting the teacher.
