Are you a teaching rockstar?
We want to hear from you.

Fluent City is making language learning a fun and attainable goal for motivated adults. We hire travel-savvy conversationalists who get students talking. We’ve got that "small-business" feel, but with "big-business" numbers. In 2014, our 110 teachers taught over 4000 hours of private lessons and 11,000 hours of group classes - that’s a lot of part time work for you! We currently operate in NYC, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.

Our teachers are the heart of the company, and make magic happen in their classrooms. We are actively hiring in NYC, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.

As an art teacher by day and French teacher by night, Julia self-published Voltaire the Franco-American Hipster Dog, a bilingual book series that sells on Amazon.

“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. We cannot sponsor any international applicants at the moment. And 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.

“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

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.

“Do you teach ESL?”

We do not offer (and do not plan to offer) ESL classes.

“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 double: $25/hour.

“Are all teachers native speakers?”

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