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!

How to deal with an inconsiderate Japanese hospital roommate

Hi guys, my daughter is currently admitted in a hospital in Tokyo and expected to stay for a minimum of 3 months. We are currently sharing a big isolation room with another patient. The mother of the patient is so loud that it will make you go crazy and will make your eardrums explode. I know limited Japanese but I know enough to understand basic convos. This mother is even badmouthing me to one of the nurses. I feel like this is some kind of discrimination. I swear we are not doing anything to her or to be an inconvenience since we share the same room. I'm thinking of bring this up to the ward head. Is it advisable? Or will just fall into deaf ears? TIA!!
