Cambly tutors are an incredibly friendly community of native English speakers who video-chat with English students from around the world! On Cambly, our core methodology is speaking practice combined with corrections. Your sessions may range from casual conversation to homework help, but as a rule of thumb: We recommend 1 correction every 5 minutes.
As soon as your account is activated, you can log into your tutor account and begin answering calls right away (cambly.com/en/tutor). You’ll start hearing notifications indicating students are available to speak. As you chat with students, Cambly will keep track of the number of minutes you spend chatting so you can get paid via PayPal, $0.17 per minute (every 60 minutes of chat-time comes out to $10.20). You can always check to see how much you’ve chatted by clicking on the “History” tab. You can add/change your PayPal address on your Account page.
What you need
- Stable & High Internet Speeds (required): Your internet needs to be able to consistently connect to our video chat servers. Test your ability to do so here.
- Google Chrome: Check that you're using the latest version of Google Chrome (more information here).
- Quiet and Orderly Place to Work (required): Your computer & camera should be resting on a desk (not in your lap or arms) in order to maintain a stable video feed. See the "Neat Background" requirement for more information.
