Types of Buddies

We see our teachers as the ‘Buddies’ of their students, helping them along on their journey to English fluency.

Flexi

Choose their own availability and update as and when they like. They do not have a minimum number of hours required from them and can change their availability at any time as long as there are no bookings during those slots. They are paid per session on a monthly basis.

Contracted

Have fixed days and hours that they teach every week. They are paid for these hours every week whether they are fully booked or not. They have access to different forms of CPD, such as Cambridge Teacher Development Courses at no cost to them. They can also update flexibly outside of contracted hours.

Pay Rates

Contracted Hours: £10/hour weekdays £12/hour weekends

If you are a flexi Buddy or you do flexi sessions outside of your contracted hours, you will be paid the following rates per session:
