The EDGE Tutor Hiring Process Steps


Step 1: Introduction Video: Get Camera-Ready - Look Your Best!


First impressions are crucial, and when it comes to online tutoring, a good camera setup is your ticket to success. To ensure that you present yourself in the best light possible, follow these tips:

  • Camera Orientation: Make sure your camera is properly oriented to capture your face clearly. A well-framed shot allows students to focus on your teaching.

  • Good Lighting: Adequate lighting is essential for a clear and engaging video. Position yourself in a well-lit area to ensure your face is well-lit without harsh shadows.

  • Clean White Background: A clean and clutter-free white background provides a professional and distraction-free environment for teaching.


Step 2: Technical Check: Check Your Equipment - Get the Right Gear


To deliver high-quality online tutoring sessions, your equipment must meet certain specifications. At EDGE Tutor, we value the importance of efficient tools for effective teaching. Here's what you'll need:

  • Desktop/Laptop - An i5 processor or higher ensures smooth performance during your tutoring sessions.

  • Internet Speed - A minimum internet speed of 25mbps guarantees a stable connection for uninterrupted lessons.

  • Backup Internet - We recommend having a backup internet connection in case of any unexpected disruptions.

  • RAM - You'll need at least 8GB of RAM to handle multiple applications simultaneously.

  • HD Webcam - A high-definition webcam ensures your video quality remains crystal clear.

Teaching is all about connecting with your students. Here's how you can shine:

  • Be Prepared - Familiarize yourself with common interview questions and practice your responses to present yourself in the best possible light.


Step 4: Time for a Live Demo - Make It Fun
