  • What is the minimum number of hours tutors need to teach per week?
    While there is no strict minimum requirement for the number of hours tutors needed to teach per week on Cambly, we suggest that tutors teach as many hours as possible during their first few weeks to help build their student base and gather positive reviews and ratings quickly, that lead to them getting many bookings. If you have the time try to put in 30-40 hours per week over the first month tutoring on Cambly. If you are doing Cambly as a 2nd job, try to put in at least 10-20 hours per week over the first month tutoring on Cambly. After that, tutors should have acquired some regular students and are hence free to set their own schedules and work as little or as much as they want, depending on their availability and preferences.
  • How many hours should tutors teach on Cambly 18+ before starting on Cambly Kids?
    We recommend tutors to teach a minimum of 50 hours on Cambly 18+ before applying to teach on Cambly Kids, so they have acquired positive ratings and reviews that are transferred over to Cambly Kids when they start there.
