We've created this Essential 7-Step Guide (which takes around 20–30 minutes to complete) for people interested in becoming an Online English Teacher. If you follow everything below closely, including the mini-guides for each step, you will certainly be accepted and can start teaching within a week.
Application Tutorial
STEP 1: SIGN UP
Click this link to start your teaching application.
STEP 2: ABOUT
Fill in your details in the 'About' section.

Native English speakers can charge significantly higher rates than the recommended low hourly rate (which is an average for non-native English tutors). Yet we recommend initially apply with the low rate and change it only after you have received your first student and review. However, once you have the 5 stars next to your profile, you can increase your rate to US$20 per hour since native English speakers can command a significantly higher rate than non-native ones. As you start acquiring some more positive reviews, you slowly increase your hourly rate to US$30 per hour (or even more if students love your classes!)
