"Be a language teacher"
Flamingo makes it easy to teach a language and meet new people in your spare time.
- Meet people
Flamingo finds you learners you can teach through casual conversation in person.
- Anytime, Anywhere
Set your own schedule and teaching area - teach when are where suits you.
Q. Do I need experience to teach?
No, you don't. It would be great if you do, but it's fine to begin teaching without any experience. However reviews about your teaching are written by your learners.
Q. Why do I have to send Flamingo a residence card?
To check your work permit and identification for security and reliability. Please take a picture of the front and back of your residence card. All we want to check is your name, face photo, birth date, address including city name and district name, and work permit, so you can blur the others if you don't want to show them. If you are Japanese, it's fine to upload something you can prove yourself (ex. driver's license).
Q. How do I get remuneration and how much will Flamingo get the fee?
Flamingo uses PayPal, so make sure that you have to have a PayPal account when you want to withdraw remuneration. Once you teach a lesson, you get remuneration from the learner as Flamingo points at a rate of 1 point = 1 JPY. When you want to transfer money to your Paypal please send us a transfer request from the Flamingo point menu in the app.

Ratings and Reviews
Schedule Management is Lacking
Although I’ve mostly enjoyed using Flamingo as a Teacher, there are a few areas where updates could vastly improve the user experience.
1. Teacher Schedule Management:
Schedule screen sometimes scrolls down when tapping on a timeframe. I would prefer if the screen was static rather than scrolling out of view with taps.
2. Lesson Scheduling
2.a. Time Flexibility:
Allow lesson times to start at half- and quarter-marks, for example at XX: :15, XX:30 and XX:45 rather than only at XX:00.
Even if I’m holding two congruent lessons at the same cafe, it’s unreasonable for the teacher to meet a second student the minute the first student’s lesson ends. At least allow for a 15-minute gap in scheduling within the app.
Allow lessons (especially upcoming lessons) to appear in chronological order so the user can see which lessons are coming the soonest.
2.c. Reminder Notifications:
Allow the ability to set a reminder/alarm when a new lesson will start soon (e.g. alarm 1 or 2 hours prior to a lesson).
3. Location Editing:
Sometimes the lesson location (neighborhood or cafe) needs to be changed beforehand, but in the current setup, the only way to change the lesson location post-confirmation is by cancelling and confirming a new lesson, which may penalize either the Student or the Teacher.
If lesson locations can be altered even post-confirmation, teacher AND student would be benefitted because Upcoming Lessons could show accurate locations without penalizing either party.
