Job: Langroo Teacher
Mission: To make language learning fun, personal and results orientated
- By serving as a student’s 1-1 language tutor through Facebook
Why This Is Exciting:
- The most difficult part of language learning is motivation and persistence. Most people want to be fluent in another language but don’t get there. Current solutions aren’t changing much. 90% of online courses don’t get finished.
- The answer? Human accountability and convenience.
- Using Facebook as a platform, students can now have their teacher at the touch of a button in a place they’re always in. It’s like having a language teacher in your living room reminding you of what to do and being there when you want to have a discussion (accountability and convenience).
- We are an ambitious Irish based startup and we are looking for fun personalities to help us on our journey.
- We match up a student to you based on fit
- You add them on Facebook, say hello, and schedule a 15 minute free trial class
- You show the student how to sign-up and pay after the trial call
- Once signed-up, send them a list of resources weekly for them to study, which includes one written assignment. All content will be provided for us so you won’t need to source it.
- Organise the 50 minute call you have with them every week via Facebook
- Correcting any mistakes in their written or spoken language (with the focus of speaking naturally)
- Holding them accountable to getting their work done
- Showing your personality and giving them an insight into the culture of a native speaker
- Having fun with them, making sure they look forward to the call and get a lot of actionable written feedback
- Being creative and tailoring your approach to reach their end objectives
- €10.50 OR €14.50 per student class (which covers a 50 minute conversation, answering of questions when needed, correction of a maximum 250 word assignment, and communication and a reminder of what content to study every week)
- Note that the free trial class will not be paid for (15 minutes), but if you sign-up that student you will get €14.50 for the first class.
- We will increase your salary by 50c/class for every year you stay with us
- You will also get the chance to contribute to a new exciting company, act as brand ambassador and for every new student you introduce to us we will pay you €5. You can be marketing on the go.
- You must be able to commit to taking on a minimum of 3 students per week (roughly 3 hours) and for a period of 3 months. Building continuity with the students is very important.
Note the company name http://www.langwi.com is currently getting changed for marketing reasons to Langroo (and we are in the process of changing the website).
