Each instructor is paid the same lesson fee directly by students after each lesson. Lessons are typically one hour long. Some students request that lessons are longer. The rate is \3,000 / hour. If a student requests a 90 minute lesson, you will receive \4,500.
Most lessons are given in a convenient location for both student and instructor, typically at a nearby cafe or restaurant. Some lessons are also taught at the student’s home especially for children.
You will be introduced to male and female students of all ages, and levels. You do have the option of deciding whether you want to teach small children, or lessons that include TOEIC exam preparation.
Lessons are based upon the student’s expectation and instructor’s style of teaching.
If textbooks or other lesson materials are needed for lessons, it is up to the instructor or student to provide them. If a student wants to be taught out of a textbook, they typically have their own. Happy English can provide you with textbook samples and other resources to help you and the student choose a book at an appropriate level.
All transportation costs are the responsibility of the instructors.
Instructors are solely responsible for scheduling of lessons with students.
Some students and corporate classes have report sheets written by the teacher, and this is paid extra by Happy English.
