Below are some of the requirements for teaching German on our platform.
Firstly, German normally needs to be your native language. However, if you have a C2 / native level, we may still be able to consider your application.
Another thing you will need is some teaching experience. Tutors with experience teaching German online will have a higher chance of success. If you have great reviews on another site, this will give you a high chance of success.
A formal teaching certificate will increase your chances of success, but is not required. This is because we also look at tutors’ wider experience and abilities.
If your level of English is below B1, you may have a lower chance of success.
To tutor German online you’ll need a very reliable internet connection, a functioning microphone, and a webcam. Note that newer computers often have built-in microphones and webcams. However, using an external camera or microphone typically provides better audio/video quality. Your internet connection must have a download/upload speed of at least 2Mbps. You can test it here.
You’ll also need to be willing to use Skype and Zoom for teaching lessons. These video calling tools are easy to set up and use. We provide instructions for Zoom in case you haven’t used it before.
