Fluent City currently offers classes for adults in NYC, Boston, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin and Chicago. We are also hiring teachers for upcoming classes in Atlanta and Portland.
Our languages offered vary by city, but we teach French and Spanish in all locations. If you apply to teach a language in a city where it is not yet offered, we will keep your application on file.
Because we hire teachers for various languages on a rolling basis, please follow the steps below so that we have your information on file for a later time if you teach any of the 10 languages we offer even if we don't offer it in the city where you live yet, keeping in mind we're always looking for French and Spanish teachers in all locations.
We do not offer (and do not plan to offer) ESL classes in any location.
All positions are part time - usually anywhere between 4 and 10 hours per week - and typically on weeknights (6:00-9:00pm or so) and Saturday afternoons. The pay is $25/hour.
If you don't have teaching experience, that's okay. Incredible teaching instincts are more important to us than experience. That does not mean, however, that you shouldn't be able to explain the structures of the language in a clear and cohesive way. You should know and be very comfortable with major fundamental concepts of foreign language pedagogy like pronunciation breakdowns, verb groups and conjugation, subject and object pronouns, and adverb placement...just to name a few.
Spending some time on this website before you contact us is a very good idea. You should especially watch both the promotional Fluent City video and the piece that Brooklyn Independent Television did about us here.
We hire teachers on a rolling basis at various intervals of the year, so please do not be surprised if you do not hear from us immediately and then get an email reply a few months later to set up an informal interview.

ABOUT FLUENT CITY: Fluent City is growing extremely quickly. We offer fun and affordable group foreign language classes to adults on weeknights and weekends. Our major selling point, besides our low prices, is that we teach beginner classes in English and the teachers are energetic non-native speakers who can teach you the language the way that they learned it. Our teachers for higher-level classes are usually, indeed, native speakers. Either way, our non-intimidating and fun learning environment are what make us stand out from our competitors.
