How does the interview work?

You can simply send us the YouTube link, Google Drive link or the video file. If you would rather have an interview, you can let us know and we will set it up as well.
What is a pre-demo training?
The pre-demo is for you to get used to the teaching program. You will learn the operations and some teaching techniques. It will be about 1 hour long.
What is a demo lesson like?
The demo is a trial lesson in which you teach one or two of our staff (assuming they are your students). They will provide tips and feedback to
help you improve your teaching style. We will also decide whether you are ready to teach or need another demo lesson
What are the trial lessons?
When you start teaching, the first 3 lessons are considered trials. While conducting the first three lessons, you are observed and assessed.
You will officially become a Qkids teacher after passing three trial lessons.
Will I get paid for these training lessons?
You will be paid 16 USD for the demo session and 8 USD each for 3 trial lessons. Pre-demo is unpaid. You will receive the payment for training regardless
of your final hiring status or decision to join our company.
