I am a native English speaker from one of the following countries: USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand
I have a smartphone, internet, and I am able to download WeChat.
I am well-spoken, articulate and able to explain things very clearly.
I am committed to quality and genuinely care about helping others.
I understand that yoli has a stringent quality control policy and I will have a short 12-class unpaid probation period. I am aware that my classes may be evaluated and recorded by yoli for this and other purposes.
A great yoli teacher is engaging, compassionate, down-to-earth, well-spoken, passionate about cultural sharing and always striving to be better.
You will need to have WeChat in order to teach on yoli. WeChat is the messenger app used for all classes. You’ll need to download it for your app store in order to complete this step (it’s free).
Once you have the app, select the ‘Me’ tab and be sure to set a unique WeChat ID. You cannot use the default ID. You can only set your ID once.
In your video we want to see how you communicate and how well you are able to explain things, so it’s important that you don’t research your answer or memorize anything. Be yourself.
Instructions: Shoot the video selfie-style with your phone camera, and keep it under 2 minutes. Don’t use props, and speak as though you are talking to an adult intermediate-level English learner.
Prompt: Briefly introduce yourself, including your country of origin, share one unique thing about yourself, and then clearly explain the difference between a house and an apartment.
Every tutor has a unique style. The diversity of styles and backgrounds is what makes yoli so valuable to students. Because classes aren't assigned, students are able to practice speaking with people from around the world, which simulates the real world and helps them improve quickly.
That said, there are standards that must be met, as well as class elements and practices fundamental to yoli. yoli is not a free talk platform. Students should be challenged in every class, no matter their level, and feedback is just as important as practice. The balance of these elements (practice, feedback, scaling) deﬁnes the yoli class genre.
It is highly receommended that you take notes as you go through the materials, so that you can be well-prepared for your ﬁrst class. Your understanding of the platform will be evaluated in the next steps of the application process.
I have carefully reviewed all of the above matierials. I understand and agree that any information shared on the yoli platform will remain the sole property of yoli and yoli will make all reasonable eﬀorts to protect any archived information. I realize that if I am oﬀered and accept part time employment at yoli I am certifying that I have an arrangement with my current employer that allows me to work part time during my own free time.
You’re almost done! Next, complete this set of questions about the materials you’ve just been through. Once you finish, you’ll need to schedule an evaluation.
You have two chances to pass the quiz. You must get at least 9/10 questions correct. Good luck!
