Teachers and tutors

Teachers and TutorsTeachers provide structured and professional lessons, so they charge more.

Tutors can correct your mistakes and help you in your speaking and listening skills, but they do not provide structured lessons for beginners. If you are a total beginner, you should choose a professional teacher. whereas if you are at least at the intermediate level, a tutor may be a good choice for you in order to be able to speak more informally and save money.

Lingostan is an online language learning platform. We connect people who want to learn or improve foreign languages (students) with people who want to teach them ("tutors" or "teachers"). The classes are one-to-one and take place on your preferred VOIP platform: Skype, WeChat, Google Hangout, Zoom.us etc.

It is very important, in order to be able to book lessons, to set your correct time zone, put your Skype account name and your display name.

A class cannot be canceled, either by the student or by the tutor/teacher, only postponed by mutual accord.

The student chooses the tutor/teacher and a time for class and makes the payment to Lingostan. After the class is over, the student confirms the class took place, and then Lingostan makes the payment to the tutor/teacher. Payments are stored in the tutor/teacher’s profile and will be sent every 15 days to the teacher/tutor’s chosen method of payment.

The student pays Lingostan for the class at the time of booking and the tutor/teacher does not receive payment from Lingostan until the student confirms that the teacher attended the class.

The teacher will only receive payment when the lesson is completed. Don’t worry, just drop us a message so we can transfer the money back into your account. In the meantime, we will keep hold of the money for you.

We are constantly making every effort to include only the best and most professional teachers and tutors but, if for any reason you are not satisfied, please write to us explaining the reasons and, if we find that the teacher didn’t behave in a professional manner, we’ll give you a refund.

Please contact us: email and we will be happy to help!
