This is why you should join us

You pass on your knowledge...

Check out the current offerings and decide what best suits you and your experience. Also, make sure the dates listed fit your schedule. Remember, only when a class is held regularly can your pupils make progress.

... and do something good with it!

There are offers for different ages, knowledge and levels. Register now on our website and see which instructors we are currently looking for the most. You are fit in math? Great, because that's what most pupils have problems with.

Smooth organization

In the user area, your pupils will see all the updates and info from you, such as exercises or links you want to share with them. You can also send them personal messages and hand over the mic during the course so they can practice their pronunciation, among other things. Cool, right?

Simple process

Are you 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 easily register and join with one click. All you have to do is get started!

Learning Support
