✅ Qualified trainers who have a minimum of 12 months experience in the field of teaching
✅ Specific experience of teaching adults (from 16 yrs. and over)
✅ The right teaching qualifications (we acknowledge that these may vary from country to country)
✅ Native or fluent speakers of the language in question
✅ Available to commit for a minimum of 10 weeks
✅ Reliability: the more a tutor is reliable, the more work they are likely to be given. A teacher who lets us down at the last minute or provides availability only to then withdraw it or fall short, becomes a candidate who will likely not be considered for further teaching opportunities. We reward teachers who demonstrate their reliability and communicate with us on a regular basis.
✅ Adaptability: while we always try to give our teaching staff plenty of notice, we also require our teachers to understand that each client/student is different, and that both their learning needs and their availability can change. A professional teacher who is able to adapt to the needs of the client is more likely to receive good feedback for more teaching hours by the client/students.
✅ Passion: at Cactus we believe that learning a language changes lives. We pride ourselves in delivering a product that speaks of quality and learning progression. A tutor who is both passionate and enthusiastic of the work they deliver is a primary incentive and driving force of student satisfaction and student retention. Many of our teachers have witnessed through their hard work and zeal the linguistic ascension of students who have gradually become fluent and confident speakers of the language in spite of their humble starting point as beginners. These are the tutors we seek out and want on board.
✅ Transparency: we understand that personal circumstances and unforeseen emergencies are a part of daily life. Should either of these apply to you please reach out to us and be transparent; inform us with as much notice as you can so that we can in turn inform the student/client and find an alternative teacher.
