Frequently Asked Questions

Can I expect to start with a full schedule?

No, it is a gradual build up of hours. Depending on your availability, the students’ availability and your performance it could take a few weeks to a few months to reach your desired weekly total of hours. The more availability you have, the faster you will acquire students.

How many hours can I work a week?

There is currently no minimum or no cap of hours, however, realistically you could work 15-30 hours a week, as that is what the majority of our coaches are working.

What is the background of the students?

We have students from all over the world, so you would work with a variety of nationalities and accents. The majority are business professionals.

Are the students tested or evaluated before their first lesson?

The students are not tested or evaluated. It isn’t necessary because all of the material can be adapted to the students’ individual levels, needs and objectives.

How do I get paid?

We pay monthly via PayPal.

Is it possible to get a higher starting rate?

No, the starting rate is set at $15/hr. It is non-negotiable.

What kind of material is provided?

We have developed our own material and curriculum. There are hundreds of worksheets that coaches have access to and can use them during the class and share them to their students. Coaches are given the flexibility to adapt the material to the students’ needs.

Is there a sample class I can watch?

Yes, if you are selected to work with us you will have access to the material and teaching tutorial videos.

How do I take time off?

If a coach is not available to do a lesson, they need to inform the student as soon as possible and the class can be rescheduled.

Will there be any training before I start?

During the onboarding process, coaches are given tutorial videos on how to use the dashboard and its features, and the teaching material. We also have a detailed Handbook on all our procedures and protocols. Additional support and training are available whenever needed.

Is this a contract position/how do the taxes work?

Coaches are hired as independent contractors (W9 form) and will receive a 1099 form at the beginning of the new year.
