I am a new teacher. How does WLTE work?
WLTE is a service that connects qualified teachers with students in your local area. Students will use our localised search facilities to search for the teachers that suit their needs - whether that be purely location based, someone qualified to teach English as a second language, a teacher to help with exam prep, or someone available for ongoing lessons and support. Teachers will register as a member and choose one of the subscription services on offer (3 months, 6 months etc.) Once you have registered and completed your profile you will be fully listed in our directory of private tutors.
How do I create a teacher account?
Like students, you will have to complete registration forms. Along with basic information such as nationality and years of teaching experience, a further form is included asking for information on your teaching skills, what you can offer students and your location and fees. A subscription service will be rolled out, with a number of different time periods available.
How do I edit my teacher’s profile?
If you log in you will be able to load up and edit your profile details and make any changes you need, such as different fees or change of address. If, at any time, you wish to delete your profile, then there is a button on the teacher dashboard to enable you to do this. In terms of your subscription, please give at least 48 hours' notice before your subscription period ends for cancellation to be processed.
I have lost my username and password. How do I recover them?
Please go to the login section and use the forgotten password option. Type in your email address and you'll receive an email with a link to click. This will enable you to reset your details and gain access to your profile.
How do I create a good teacher profile?
We've designed our forms to be easy to fill in and submit. Please give a good overall picture of your teaching experience and any specific skills or services you can offer students who conduct a search with us.
How do I pay for a subscription?
Payment details and accepted methods of payment will be made available on site and through communication that we send out. A number of different options and time periods will be available, so you could join for 3 months, 6 months, or a year. You can cancel your subscription at any time and it will run out on expiry, or if you decide to stay with the site it will auto renew.
How do students contact me?
Registered students will be able to contact you by sending a message to your email address. You also have the option to add a contact number to your profile.
Will my contact details be visible to everyone?
Contact details will only be visible to registered students. They will click on your details in their search results, and will see your profile details and any contact details you've chosen to upload.
How do I get paid for my lessons?
Students will pay for lessons offline and you will be paid directly by them. You can arrange payment methods directly with them when they book or arrive for their first lesson. You will be working on a self employed basis, so while payment will vary depending on each individual student and their needs, you are responsible for including relevant taxes within your fees, and fulfilling tax obligations.
