- We recommend that you have at least two years of experience in teaching, tutoring, coaching or mentoring.
- You must have obtained a degree from an accredited university. Great news is that this can be in any field or major.
- You must be legally authorized to work in your country of residence.
- This shouldn’t be a shocker, but a virtual class requires a few technical things to make it happen.
- Download our app to sign up, create an account and complete a simple form.
- Review some materials and do a short demo lesson so we can get a glimpse at how awesome you are.
- Do a mock session with a current guide (they’ll help prep you for the real thing).
- Sign your contract, get access to our app and start guiding!
There is no minimum commitment, you can work as much or as little as you’d like.
Well functioning equipment and supplies needed to teach classes include, but aren’t limited to:
- microphone (s),
- camera (s),
- computer (s) or smartphone (s)
- and an internet connection with adequate speed.

The interview is very important because, along with your qualifications, it will help decide whether you are a good fit. It will also determine your Level for payment.
You will need to display how well you are able to explain activities to a beginner level student, how you are able to work with them to get complete answers, your teaching skills and your time management. Also, make sure to prepare in advance as this can help greatly during the lesson.
There are two methods to interview with us. You can:
Record interview on your computer: Record your demo lesson at your own time for a recruiter to evaluate.
Smart interview on your Mobile: You can also do your demo on mobile at your own time for a recruiter to evaluate. You can go to the App store or Google play to download the app.
All classes are one-on-one to make sure you and the student have each other’s full attention.
Nope, our office staff will handle that for you.
Nope, teachers can teach any student who books their class.
We have developed our own cutting-edge platform to facilitate our one-on-one classes.
Check out our community page, where current teachers share their experience.
As independent contractors, for good or bad, you are responsible for your own taxes in accordance with individual tax jurisdictions or country laws.
Teachers are paid through direct bank deposits on the 15th of each month.
Each guided session is guaranteed 30 minutes of active teaching time. After that, teachers may take a few minutes to leave comments. The total time commitment is 35 minutes per class, not including preparation time. Three minutes are also allotted for possible tech problems before a session is cancelled.
Yazi sets no limit on how much a teacher can teach - you have 100% control over your schedule. However, non-peak times may not be as popular amongst our students as they are not available for classes (they are likely in school or asleep). Please also be advised that it can take up to a month to get a relatively steady stream of sessions, as learners and parents get to know and try out new guides. We make no guarantee of a steady stream of sessions but do our best to ensure that we are keeping you as busy as possible.
