7-Step Application Guide
We've created this Essential 7-Step Guide (which takes around 20–30 minutes to complete) for people interested in becoming an Online Swedish 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.

Please take special note of coming back here to this application guide, after submitting your application, to complete the mandatory Step 7 since we are currently prioritizing native Swedish speakers.
7-Step Guide
STEP 1: SIGN UP
Click this link to start your teaching application.
STEP 2: ABOUT
Fill in your details in the 'About' section.

Even though native Swedish speakers can charge significantly higher rates, in order to quickly get accepted you should initially use the recommended low hourly rate (which is an average for non-native Swedish tutors). This is a hack I discovered while doing my own application. However, once you are accepted, you can increase your rate to 250–350 Krona per hour since native Swedish speakers can command a significantly higher rate than non-native ones. As you start acquiring some positive reviews, you slowly increase your hourly rate to 350 Krona per hour (or even more if students love your classes!)
STEP 3: PROFILE PHOTO
Upload a profile photo. Read detailed PHOTO guidelines here.

Common mistakes: bad quality photo; not professional;
STEP 4: PROFILE DESCRIPTION

Example headlines:
