Which are the required teaching qualifications?
We welcome teachers, with experience in teaching any language, with any valid teaching qualification. Many students want to learn a language to help them when they go abroad, focusing on the development of speaking skills. Therefore, they might learn best from a native speaker. Some other students will be extremely focused on grammar, preparing for exams or improving language skills for work purposes. In these situations, formally qualified tutors may be more suitable.
