6-Step Application Guide
IMPORTANT NOTE:
The guide below is the collective result of hundreds of successful tutors who have collaborated to make the 30-minute application process as smooth as possible for new tutors.
Experience has shown that applying without referring to EACH STEP covered in this guide will lead to your application being rejected because you will inevitably make mistakes on sections which may seem intuitive at first glance.
Recommendation: Keep the following guidelines in one browser window and the application (link in step 1) open in another browser window and check for each step whether you are complying with the instructions in the guidelines.

IMPORTANT!
After uploading the photo it sometimes asks you about a teaching certificate. IMPORTANT: Native Danish speakers DO NOT need teaching certification and you simply skip this step by ticking the box for "I don't have any teaching certification yet" at the bottom of the page.
STEP 4: PROFILE DESCRIPTION
Write a profile description (minimum 100 words). Click here to read the detailed DESCRIPTION guidelines.

Example headlines:

-Build your future: I will make you fluent in Danish with personalized lessons
-Native Danish speaker from CopenhagenUniversity
-High-Level Business Danish Language

Moreover, you can view some examples of successful applicants for the language you intend to teach by looking at the video and application examples here.

Here is a Successful Template Framework you can use to write your own profile description:

*Greet the reader (potential students)*
*Introduce yourself in 1 sentences*
*Write 1 sentence about why you want to tutor Danish online*
*If you have any experience teaching, write 1 sentence about that here*
*Mention if you can teach kids as well as adults, or only adults*
*Mention what the main focus of your lessons could be (improving grammar, business conversation, day-to-day communication, correcting pronunciation, discussing different topics in Danish etc.)*
*Mention why students should choose you to be their tutor here*
*Add a "Call-To-Action" inviting students to book a lesson with you, or to message with any questions*

Common mistakes: grammatical and punctuation errors, using languages other than Danish, sharing personal information like: last name, phone number and other external communication channels (Skype, Zoom, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Email).

STEP 5: INTRODUCTION VIDEO
This is actually very easy. We understand that the camera can be intimidating but if thousands of tutors have managed to do it before then you can do it too.

Record a video (at least 30s, no more than 2min). Click here to read the detailed VIDEO guidelines.

Strictly follow the guidelines above. You can view some example videos here.

For this video, you can follow the same template as in the one you write in the Description (Step 4) but do not read off the screen.

If the video doesn't upload or the page gets stuck please reload the page at least 2 times and you will be able to upload the video or move forward with your application

IMPORTANT: please either record a video or upload your own unlisted video from Youtube - Do NOT use the link of any random videos from Youtube, as that will get your application rejected.

Common mistakes: bad resolution/lightning;
