    I have been working at TakeLessons full-time (More than a year)


    TakeLessons is run by fun, passionate people who care about what they do. They are a small, close-knit team of professionals who truly put in their best work every day. The mission is to sustain an online marketplace that enables teachers and tutors to make a living doing what they love. No matter where you start, there are opportunities to truly make a difference while developing your personal and professional skills.


    If you're uncomfortable with change, or prefer a predictable day-to-day gig, the start-up life isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    The only suggestion I can think of is to offer formal programs whereby employees can get paid-for professional certifications in related fields. Since this would be an addition to an already stellar compensation package, this suggestion is far from criticism.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TakeLessons.


    Fill out an online form - have two phone interviews, pass a background check. Easy (although not really thorough). The whole interview questions were pretty standard for teaching, but there was no talk of having to submit a video of you teaching or an inperson demonstration. I have been teaching for 10+ years and found it odd that a telemarketing company based in San Diego wouldnt require any sort of quality control when it comes to the ability of instructors.

    Interview Questions

    • Having to pay for your own background check. They are also really big on wanting your financial info before agreeing to a salary   Answer Question
