Frequently Asked Questions - Applying and requirements
How can we help you?
In order for your profile to be visible in the teacher list, it has to be approved by a coLanguage staff member.
The reasons why your profile is not visible might be:
To apply as a teacher you need to register and create a profile on the coLanguage website. Fill in as much information as you can.
A member of our staff will evaluate your profile, give you tips about how to make it better and subsequently approve it when your profile is 100% complete. After your profile got approved you can start teaching!
The coLanguage platform is completely free to enter! When you teach, we charge a service fee of 15% on your hourly rate. You can pick your own hourly rate for the services you offer!
Yes, you can teach more than one language. Indicate the languages you can teach in your profile.
No formal teaching experience is required to start teaching at coLanguage. However, your teaching experience, both offline and online, will be taken into consideration when students pick their teacher and should also be reflected in the price per hour you set.
However, the basic requirements to teach are fluency in the language you teach and strong motivation.
No teaching certificate is required to start teaching at coLanguage. However, having any teaching certificates will make you more attractive for students. You can indicate the certificates you have got in your profile.
You do not need to be a native speaker to teach the language.
However, you must be fluent in that language so students can benefit the most from their lessons.
Your profile will be approved via email if you fulfill all the requirements, and you can start teaching! However, we also have so named 'verified teachers'. Verified teachers have a green check mark in their profile and rank higher in the teacher list. To become a verified teacher, a staff member will interview you personally on Skype. While it is not necessary to get a Skype interview with a staff member to teach at coLanguage, we highly recommend it.
During the verification interview we evaluate several things: your background, education, work experience and language proficiency. We will also explain everything you need to know about how the website works and you can ask all your questions.
