Why you should join us

You pass on your knowledge...

Take a look at the current offer and decide what suits you and your experience best. Also make sure that the specified dates fit into your schedule. Remember: your pupils can only make progress if a course takes place regularly.

... and do something good!

There are offers for different ages, knowledge levels and levels. Register now on our website and see which instructors we are currently looking for the most. Are you good at math? Great, because that's where most pupils have problems.

Smooth organization

In the user area, your pupils will see all updates and information from you, e.g. exercises or links that you would like to share with them. You can also send them personal messages and hand over the microphone during the course so that they can practise their pronunciation, among other things. Cool, isn't it?

Simple process

Worried about technical difficulties when organizing a virtual course? Don't worry, we'll create the link to your course for you so that your pupils can register and join with just one click. All you have to do is get started!
