How it works

Sign up in only 10 minutes

We make joining the team quick and easy. We just need to know about your qualifications, experience and a little about you so we can create your profile. If all your details are OK, you’ll be ready to go within a week.

Wait for us to start matching you with students

No need to search for them yourself. Once you’re on the team we’ll ask about your teaching preferences and availability, and match you with appropriate students. We’ll introduce you to them by email and let you take things from there.

Pay us a one-off fee only when the student starts lessons

Students pay you directly and often pay for a block of lessons in advance. Once you’ve been paid for at least four lessons we charge you a one-off referral fee equal to two of them. After that, everything you earn you keep.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need a teaching qualification?

Most teachers on our team have a language teaching qualification. We will however look at people with alternative backgrounds, such as years of teaching experience or prior work in linguistics or communications.

How are lessons arranged?

Once we’ve found you a student we’ll introduce you to them by email and it will be up to you to arrange lessons with them. Students pay you direct and once you’ve been paid for 4 lessons you pay us the fee.

What if a student quits?

Most students pay for a block of lessons in advance, but if they are paying each lesson at the time and they quit before having 4 lessons, then you don’t owe us any fee.

Do you only work with natives?

We’re proud to work with native and non-native language teachers. If you can speak your language fluently then you’re welcome to sign up.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

We ask all students to give you at least 24 hours notice if they need to cancel lessons. If not you can feel free to charge them, although it is up to you to enforce this rule with them.

Are your hiring me?

No, we’re a company that helps you find new students. By signing up, 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 find somewhere convenient for lessons. Some students will prefer to learn at your home, some will want you to come to their place. Otherwise, we suggest finding a nice quiet cafe for lessons.

Is there a set teaching method?

We give teachers the freedom to teach using their own preferred methods. It’s your responsibility to help your students decide on goals, set them homework and monitor their overall progress.

How much do I charge students?

We set fixed prices for lessons and teachers must stick to these. There are, however, a few situations in which you can charge more or less.
