Palfish FreeTalk:

  • For teachers who prefer to teach Adults
  • More flexible than the Official Kids Course – you can set your pay rate and also determine your hours

IMPORTANT: Teachers can promote themselves to prospective students on the app – the more you engage, post and follow people, the more exposure you will have to students.

The Palfish community is also very strong. When your application is approved, you are automatically added to a large group chat with other teachers. Everyone shares their tips and tricks and you can ask whatever you need.
