Online Teacher (flex hours)

Do you like to converse with people who have different worldviews and perspectives? 

    We hire teachers who are passionate about meeting people and playing an essential role in their education.  Most of our students are highly-motivated working professionals whose companies sponsor their language training, while others are teachers of English participating in professional development. We also teach high school- and college-age students preparing for admissions exams and interviews.

    We conduct all our teaching sessions 1:1 online. If the online environment is “foreign” to you, we will train you until you feel comfortable.  You will gain experience in managing a virtual classroom, including such skills as sharing screens, using Web apps, capturing screenshots, checking sound issues, etc.
