You teach all of your lessons directly through the app. Since students prepay for the lessons you are guaranteed payment whenever you choose to move it to your account.

Online ESL Teacher Salary and Compensation
That depends entirely on how much time you want to spend tutoring, how good you are (students will leave reviews!), and how in-demand your language is. However, just by teaching a couple of hours a day, you can earn over $500/month. Not too bad for being your own boss.

However due to the quantity of applications we receive, we can only get back to those who we think are a good fit.
Company Information for Tandem
Our app is crafted by an international team of language hackers based in Berlin. Our mission? To build a global, mobile-first language learning community that empowers everyone, everywhere to speak any language.
Language learners have used the “Tandem” language learning method since the 70s. When you do something “in tandem”, you try together to reach a common goal – for example, riding a Tandem bike or doing a skydive with a partner.
While many learners have already benefitted from language exchange, it is not always easy to find a partner to practice with. Too many learners give up after struggling to find a convenient and cheap way to talk to a native speaker.
Our app is designed to give everyone the opportunity to practice languages for free. Today, millions of people from all around the world use our app to help each other learn new languages via text, audio and video chat.
With speaking practice made easy on mobile, we can all learn new languages together, anytime, anywhere. Join the Tandem community, and you can speak any language too!
