Cambly is quite different from some of the other companies we recommend at Online English Teaching.
Cambly is a digital networking platform that allows students from all over the world to connect with native English speaking tutors for things like:
structured English lessons,
job interview preparation, and
survival English role-playing (at the grocery store, giving instructions to a taxi driver, etc)
You don’t have to be an English teacher to work at Cambly. There are business people, personal trainers, cooks, nurses, and everything in between who tutor with Cambly.
1-on-1 video chatting
24/7 on-demand sessions for both tutors and students
Students can log in at any time to find a tutor
Tutors can log in at any time and connect with students
How long you speak with a student depends on the package they have purchased
Some students book packages with 15 minute times slots, others for 30 mins, and some book hour-long sessions.
When you log on as a tutor, you set your availability, so you don’t have to worry about having to cut a student’s class short
You also have the option to approve a student’s request to book your class in advance
There is no obligation to do this and there are no minimum number of hours you must commit to
Every lesson is recorded so students can review afterwards
Cambly has an in-chat translation feature that allows teachers or students to type in their native language and have it automatically translated if they get stuck.
Cambly does have a kids program, however there is no way to apply to it as this time. Cambly reaches out to teachers who they think are a good fit and asks them to work in the program.
