The Berlitz Virtual Classroom is looking for German, English, Swedish, Italian, French and Norwegian language instructors who have an interest in language, strong communication skills, and a love of working with and exploring other cultures. This is a supplementary position which many of our instructors take on in addition to their primary jobs. The position is part-time (18.5 -22.5 hours of availability per week), and freelance.
We have openings for instructors who can be available for five 4.5 hour shifts:
Monday - Thursday : 7:00 - 11:30 CET
Monday - Friday : 7:00 - 11:30 CET
Monday - Thursday: 8:00 - 12:30 CET

Monday - Friday: 16:30 - 21:00 CET
Monday - Thursday: 19:00 - 23:00 ET
Monday - Thursday: 20:00 - Midnight ET
Monday - Thursday: 8:00 - 12:00 ET
We work in 45 minute teaching units. Most classes are 2 units (1.5 hrs), some are 3 units (2.25 hrs). Each 45 minute teaching unit includes a 5 minute break. The 4.5 hour shifts enable a teacher to teach three back-to-back lessons in a period of peak demand. This is not the norm, but it does happen from time to time. We offer Norwegian and Swedish instructors 15 euros per unit, German 10 euros, French 8 euros and English and italian 7 euros per unit, 40 min of actual teaching time. The monthly average unit rate ranges from 70-80 units in a quiet month to 110-120 in a busy one.
We provide both training and work materials, and of course we take care of scheduling the students, billing them, and we provide technical support during all work hours. All teachers have an online calendar and they know in advance when their classes will be. If a student no-shows, or has a late cancellation, the instructor is paid in full.
As it is an online position, of course we need to know that the teachers meet our minimum technical requirements. All teachers need to have a Windows-based or Mac system (pc or laptop), and access to a stable internet connection (cable connection only) of 2 Mbps download, 1 Mbps upload speed. Macs are also fine, as long as they have OS X.1 or higher.
If you are interested, please let me know. I will be happy to arrange for one of our recruiters to speak with you. If this is not for you, but you know of other native pedagogically inclined speakers who might be interested in this job, please feel free to pass on the information about this position.
