A step-by-step guide of how to become a teacher with OCTB
With Video Tutorials
Step 1: Check Your Internet Speed
Before you do anything else, you need to make sure that you have decent internet connection. In our experience, the following speed will suffice:
Download: 20 Mbps
Upload: 20 Mbps
If your internet speed meets our requirements, please proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Check how fast you can type
During a lesson, our teachers are expected to type what the learner says in the dialogue stage into our platform. If your typing speed is above 60 WPM, please proceed to the next step.
Step 4: Sync your availability
As soon as we get your email, we will send you a request from Wix to sync your calendar, so students can book a first lesson with you based on the times when you are available. If you don't get the email within 24 hours, please check your spam folder and if it's still not there, send us an email and we will resend the request.
Step 5: Block off the times when you are not available
Your availability will blocked off by default 24 hours from the moment the student is looking at your availability. Please follow along with the video and BLOCK OFF all the times when you are unavailable.
Step 6: Create your profile
Now you need to create a profile in our platform in order to be able to schedule your students. Please follow along with the steps in the video and you will be done in 5 minutes. Don't forget to skip the training by closing the browser.
