We discourage foreign nationals to apply since the process of acquiring the requirements is tedious. If, however, you can get a Tax Identification Number (TIN), and can open a bank account in the Philippines, then you are welcome to apply.
To become a tutor again, you’ll need to retake the Demo Lesson (and undergo the English Proficiency Test if you’re not done with it before). Just log in to your RareJob account, fill out the Application Clearance form, wait for its approval, then take the tests.
Once an applicant becomes an active tutor, they’ll be given access to Orientation modules, assigned to a counselor, and undergo a coaching session.
