These teachers are online now and waiting for you to schedule a live session with them!  All Instant Tutoring sessions are 30 minutes long.  You can extend Instant Tutoring sessions by requesting an additional follow-up session with your teacher after you complete your current session.

Sort by the language that you want to learn.

✔ Make sure you have ITC in your account!  Instant Tutoring works best if you already have ITC in your account as you won’t need to go through the payment process.  Buy italki credits.

After you click on Request Instant Tutoring, you will be brought to the confirmation page.  You can write a message to the Teacher informing him of any special requirements.  Confirm the Instant Tutoring session by submitting your italki password.  italki will then hold this ITC for you and will only release it after you have confirmed the Instant Tutoring session is complete.

3. Wait for your Teacher to accept your Instant Tutoring Request

While most teachers will immediately accept your Instant Tutoring request, as a courtesy, teachers will have up to 10 minutes to accept or decline your request.

Don't be discouraged if you don't get your Instant Tutoring Request as another student may have secured the session with the teacher.  Just make a new Instant Tutoring Request with a new teacher! 

 

4. Have your online session via SKYPE or other VOIP software!

After your teacher accepts your Instant Tutoring request, the teacher's SKYPE or other VOIP program ID will be visible. 

Connect and have your session!
