FAQs for TeachersCommonly asked questions by teachers | flipClass.com
What is flipClass.com?
flipClass.com is India's leading marketplace for quality home/online tuitions, connecting budding and passionate teachers to students across the country.
Does this mean that I have to travel to a student's home and teach?
Yes, if you are taking a home tuition. If you are taking an online tuition, all you need is a laptop/desktop and good broadband connectivity.
Will you take a fixed percentage of money from my tuition?
No. We charge a onetime fixed fee equivalent of 2 hours for every student you get through our platform.
Who collects the tuition fee?
You can collect weekly/monthly tuition fee from the parent after the classes. We discourage taking advance payment for tuition.
What happens after registering as a tutor?
We need to assess your suitability for teaching before enrolling you in flipClass. This is done by an online assessment/test followed by an interview. Though we focus on basics, it will help if you brush up the subjects that you want to teach before test/interview.
What is the approximate distance that I have to travel? With today's traffic I don't want to travel long distances.
You can choose how much you want to travel. In general, we do not recommend traveling more than 4-5 km from your residence. We understand the stress caused by traffic and would not want to put you through the stress.
Does flipClass have any teaching method or study material that I need to follow?
We recommend using SmartKids/GeniusKids worksheets to cover key concepts in Mathematics, English and Science for grades 1st to 5th. Some parents, however, may have a specific objective of tuition and would want you to stick to certain books/material
Will I be paid for the demo class?
Giving a demo class is an opportunity for you to check compatibility and comfort before giving a commitment. It also helps customers make up their mind. You will not be paid for the demo class.
I have been asked for a demo. Should I prepare?
Absolutely. Please ask for grade/board information from the counsellor. Brush up on the syllabus/topics and go prepared. Please note that in case you fail a demo, our internal system may mark your quality score down. Go for a demo only if you are very sure of the syllabus/topics and wish to continue for a long period.
I am shifting to some other location. I cannot continue.
Please make sure that you have informed the parent in advance so that he can arrange for a suitable replacement.
