3 great reasons to join our team
1) When people look for a language teacher, they find our website first. We can help you find as many students as you want.
2) We don’t take a cut of your earnings or act as an annoying middle man. We make the introduction and then the student pays you directly.
3) We don’t set schedules or dictate teaching methods. You can work as much or as little as you want and teach the way you know best.
Frequently asked questions
Do I need a teaching qualification?
You should only apply to join the team if you have a teaching degree or a language teaching qualification such as a TEFL or CELTA certificate. Other than this, years of experience teaching or working in the field of communications or linguistics may also be considered.
How are lessons arranged?
We put you in contact with the student by email and send you a copy of the form they filled in. It’s then up to you to arrange a time and place for lessons and collect money from them.
How does the fee work?
You pay us a fee equal to the cost of 2 lessons. You only need to pay this once a student has paid you for a block of 4 or 8 lessons, or has paid you for at least 4 lessons individually. It’s a one-off fee, so once it’s paid, you keep everything you earn from that student going forward.
What if a student quits?
If they are paying for lessons individually and they quit before they’ve had 4 lessons, then you don’t need to pay us any fee. Don’t worry though, this rarely happens.
Must I be a native speaker?
We happily work with native and non-native speakers. Fluency, passion and experience teaching is what we look for.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
We ask all students to tell their teacher at least 24 hours beforehand if they need to cancel. If they don’t then you’re entitled to charge them for the lesson, however, you are responsible for enforcing this.
When will I hear about my application?
We get a high number of applications, so you’ll only get a reply if you’ve been successful. If you haven’t heard from us in within a week, you can assume your application was unsuccessful. If your circumstances change, you are free to reapply any time in the future.
Are you hiring me?
No. We’re a company that helps you find new students. By joining the roster, you acknowledge that you are a freelance teacher working directly with your students and you take responsibility for paying taxes on your earnings. There is no contract to sign and our relationship is based on trust. If you don’t pay your fees we will stop finding you students.
Do I need a place to teach?
We leave it to you and the student to work out somewhere suitable for lessons. It’s helpful if you can teach from home, but many students can meet you at their home or office. You can also meet somewhere public.
Is there a set teaching method?
As you’re the expert on teaching, we let you use the methods and materials they know best. Make sure you discuss goals with your students, plan lessons accordingly, give feedback and monitor their progress as they progress.
