frequently asked questions

What makes Fluent City different?

You can expect training and workshops on a wide variety of teaching topics, professional development, lots of fun happy hours, a flexible work schedule, discounts for friends and family, and 100% free unlimited language classes in any language!

Do I need a license or certificate to apply?

Nope, but you do need to be legally authorized to work and live in the U.S. Unfortunately, we cannot sponsor any international applicants at the moment. Also, while not required, we do prefer applicants who have previous teaching experience.

How much am I expected to work?

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 except for private lessons, which usually take place during the day.

What is the pay?

We are a teacher-centered organization and committed to making Fluent City the best language school in the country. So it is no surprise that we pay our teachers top rates. The big language schools often pay their teachers $13/hour. We pay pretty much double: $25/hour.

Are you hiring in my language?

We offer the following languages in our locations:

New York: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish

Chicago: Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish

Washington D.C.: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish

Philadelphia: Arabic, French, Italian and Spanish

Boston: French, German, Italian and Spanish

If you teach any of these languages and live in these cities, we would love to hear from you.

Are all teachers native speakers?

Nope, we hire both native and non-native speakers.

Should I send you my résumé?

No need. Just choose a language above to get started.
