Job description
Unlike previous services, Planetalk does not require you to use the textbook or curriculum. I would like you to proceed with the lessons in your style. To the members, "It's fun to learn a foreign language!" "You can learn a foreign language and talk easily with people in your country!" "Your communication skills have improved in working with people in your country!"
We value lessons that make you feel.

About the lesson

Members need points to take lessons. Below the instructor's image, the number of points is listed. The higher the number of points, the higher the reward per lesson. The number of points can be changed after the trial period.

Flow to participate in the lesson

If you register a schedule from the instructor management screen, the schedule will be displayed on the site side. After seeing it, the member makes a schedule reservation. At that time, start Zoom and the lesson will start.

After the lesson ...

You will be asked to make a "completion report" to report whether the lesson was done properly.
Work location
If you have an internet environment where you can use your computer and Zoom, you can work from home!

All are free shifts, so you can manage your lesson schedule at your own pace [24 hours a day, 365 days a year].
