What's the best online teaching option?

I'm looking to fill some free time with online teaching, either through Skype or the company's native platform. I don't want to do private lessons where I have to gather my own students; I want to work under a company. Do you guys have any recommendations for that? If you do, could you give me a bit more info about pay and your own experiences/what you've heard?

    I don't have exact company names in mind but I know that some eikaiwa places also have their teachers teach online classes, but usually they are teachers working there in person and then online from the company's location. Other than that, there are many websites similar hellosensei there you put your profiles online and students come to you, so it is less of you gathering them yourself.

    Online, I only know of VIPKID - a friend that used to live here in Japan worked through them. From what I know they mainly seek out American-English speaking staff, and you teach English online to children in China. Not sure if that's the kind of route you want to go down, but my friend is back in the US and still teaches through them. She likes the convenience, and being able to take on as many or as few classes as she likes.

    I haven’t taught online, but some colleagues have. They didn’t rely on a company or platform. Their rates were ¥2000 / hr. Have you looked at italki? They take 15% of your lesson fee. Tutors charge US$13-15, professional teachers about US$20. The platform can handle international payment.

    http://www.globalcom-online-english-school.co.jp/ I found out about this company through a friend~ in addition to providing students for online classes, they also have a dispatch service that I actually do for them. I prefer teaching in-person as opposed to online, so I chose to be a dispatch teacher, but I'm sure they'd be happy to have more online teachers!

Cheapest shipping method to the USA?

I want to send a box of clothing (probably weighing about 10kg) to the USA. What's the cheapest way to do so? Speed doesn't matter to me... Just as long as it arrives safely. Please don't link me to the JP postage calculator (https://www.post.japanpost.jp/cgi-charge/index.php?lang=_en) I'd like a service you've personally used/can recommend. And I guess if you've used JP, just let me know if you recommend it! Thanks :)

Long Golden Week - What's going on?

Did a bit of light research into flights during the long Golden Week this year. I knew things would be expensive but I was still surprised by the price of flights -- 400,000 yen + to go back to the UK, 200,000 yen + to Bali (if there are any direct flights left) -- basically I'm resigned to not leaving Japan. Just wondered what everyone else is doing, and if I might be able to steal some of your ideas? And open this up as a chance to air any long-Golden-Week-but-can't-afford-to-go-anywhere frustrations.
