JOB DESCRIPTION AND DETAILS
PandaTree delivers high-quality online foreign language tutoring for children. Our students are children 5-15 years old who are learning a foreign language and are looking to practice their conversational skills. PandaTree provides a fun and convenient way for our students to learn with individualized tutoring sessions and engaging conversation-starting content.
Currently, PandaTree is hiring native-fluency Spanish-speaking tutors to provide one-on-one conversational tutoring for 5-15 year old children via videoconference. Tutors work 10-25 hours of their choosing per week from the comfort of their own home/room.
Our tutors help kids improve their Spanish fluency through fun, interesting conversations over video-conference. Our focus is on discussing topics the child is passionate about, not word drills and grammar.
During the session, the tutor will use content such as photos, poems and short videos that are provided by PandaTree to spark a fun conversation.
Tutors gently help with new words or corrections as needed and add new words to the student’s personalized word list.
Tutoring sessions last 25 or 50 minutes. 5-20 minutes of prep time is required before each session. Sessions are recorded for later review by the student and for ensuring quality.
