Bibo Global Opportunity teachers provide English lessons to students from Japan, Taiwan, and other parts of the world via Skype.
Hours: Tutors are free to select slots to open for teaching. The schedule is flexible, slots can be opened 24/7, up to 7 days in advance, including weekends and holidays and there is no minimum number of classes you have to conduct.
Your lessons will be 25 minutes long, with 5 minutes break time in between and all lessons are one-on-one.
Students: Tutors will be teaching (mostly) Japanese students of varying ages, proficiency levels, and backgrounds.
You will need a working computer (desktop or laptop), a Skype account, a stable internet connection, working headsets/earphones, and a webcam. ESL teaching experience is not required. What is required, however, is mastery of the English language, teaching skills, and computer literacy (especially Skype) and you have to be at least 18 years old to apply.
Non-Natives: A proficiency in the English language is required to work with Bibo Global Opportunity. If you have a Certificate of Proficiency in the English Language, this is a plus!
All applicants, regardless of whether they are native or non-native speakers, will be required to submit a short essay to prove their English proficiency level. During your application, you will have four essay topics to choose from – pick one to answer. Organize your thoughts into clear sentences and double-check your essay for possible grammatical and spelling mistakes before submitting it. You will be notified whether you pass the assessment or not.
If you pass the initial screening, you will be invited to a Skype interview and one of our interviewers will e-mail you with all the details necessary prior to your first interview. This typically happens within 24 hours of applying for the tutoring position.
If you pass the interview, you will be asked to deliver your Internet speed test result 60 – 30 minutes before your training starts. Applicants who pass the training and do not meet the required Internet speed will not be permitted to start classes until the Internet connection speed is upgraded.
