Gible connects countries and people through education. Everyone's experiences, skills, and knowledge can be a tool to make a difference in people’s lives across the globe.
Our classes consist of all aspects of learning including English, Korean, pre-college courses, Bible study, IT, mentoring, etc.
Your commitment can be as little as one hour a week, but the result can be as big as fostering a community in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, South America, and all over the world.
1. Be patient.
Patience is a must for Gible teachers for the following reasons.
Many students who wish to take classes do not have any English background, so it could take time for them to understand and answer your questions. Even when you don’t get their responses instantly, please don't rush them.
Also, most developing countries do not have the strongest wifi signals. Not only that, their weather conditions affect the connection tremendously. As a result, the video chat may lag or get cut off more often than you could expect. When a situation like that happens, wait until the connection stabilizes, or in the worst-case scenario, postpone the class.
Lastly, the younger your students, the shyer they can be. This means it will take time for them to adjust to the online learning environment. But don’t worry! They are extremely excited to see you, meet you, and interact with you.
2. Be open-minded.
Gible is available for everyone across nationalities, religions, ages, gender, etc. Therefore, please be open-minded with whoever you teach and interact with. The key is to connect people around the world and give both parties opportunities to share and learn.
3. Be responsible.
Once you decide to be a teacher, it is important to maintain the class for the given length of the period. Teaching online, especially with students from different learning backgrounds, could bring many unexpected variables opposite from your prior teaching experience and expectations. But please keep in mind that you are not only delivering knowledge to them, but changing their future.
At the end of the day, both you and the students should wrap up the class with a smile. The purpose of Gible is to connect students in developing countries with teachers in developed countries,
enhancing the lives of both those full of possibility and those with life experience. So we hope that the short one-hour interaction between you and your students creates a meaningful experience in both of your lives.
We are constantly expanding our curriculum. Currently, the Basic or Intermediate English courses are the highest demanded classes among all our curriculum but there is always a need for more specific and professional fields like job mentoring, teacher training, Bible study, IT support (Excel, PowerPoint, Google Search and etc), language education or basic college subjects.
If you have your own teaching materials, feel free to use them! However, if you don’t have any, our curriculum is easy to use without training. Please go to adducate.net

If your field of expertise is not on our list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what your specialty is. We are open to all possible courses.
