OKpanda uses an online platform similar to Google Hangouts or Skype. Classes are one on one to a student base of primarily adult Japanese and Korean EFL learners. Teachers should be available to work a minimum of two (2) hours per day, 4 days per week. Classes start every half-hour and last for 25 minutes. In between classes, teachers are responsible for providing some brief feedback on the completed lesson and preparing for any upcoming classes they may have.

The rate for a successfully-completed 25-minute lesson is from $1.50 to $5.00 USD (up to $10 USD / 50 minutes) depending primarily on accent, experience, foreign language skills, and teaching qualifications. Great performance will be rewarded with opportunities for raises, promotion, and career growth.
