MyCoolClass is an international teacher cooperative with its own online teaching platform. We bring together the best teachers from around the world with the most eager learners in a fun, open, and culturally diverse space. We also give independent teachers the power to design their own workspace.
We’re an autonomous association of independent teachers who have voluntarily come together to meet our common economic needs, professional goals, and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically controlled platform cooperative.

Better wages, better benefits, and total transparency
Teachers pay 19% of their monthly earnings into the cooperative. This covers operating expenses, payment processing fees, and a contribution to the general fund that helps us grow. Part of the 19% also goes to your paid time off! We don’t have any major shareholders taking a cut. As a member, you also are part owner of the co-op and have a say in what happens to any profits.
Create your own lesson packages and group courses
MyCoolClass offers three options for teachers to optimize their teaching business.
Teacher Marketplace – Create your profile and lesson packages for individual tutoring. Students can easily book lessons with you through our website.
Course Marketplace – Create your own unique group courses in any language, subject or skill and attract learners around the world.
Private Students – Bring your own students to MyCoolClass and use all of our cool features and tools. Teachers can set a private rate that isn’t listed on the marketplace.
Paid time off
Teachers accumulate seven days of paid sick or personal leave annually, based on their contribution and average daily salary. We want teachers to be able to take care of themselves when they’re sick or on leave without losing income. You can only take out what you put in.
No penalties or fines for cancellations if you are sick or have an emergency
Bad things happen. If you have a family emergency or need to take a few days off, just cancel class and let your student know. We expect teachers to be responsible and communicate with their students.
Anytime and anywhere in the world
Our platform works wherever you are and wherever the road takes you. All you need is an internet connection. Our platform also works in mainland China without any restrictions.
Everything you need to run your teaching business
Our platform provides all the tools teachers need to manage their students and courses.
With MyCoolClass you can exchange messages, use forums, set up lesson packages, create courses, complete online assignments and much more.
We take care of all administrative tasks and serve as a payment gateway to receive payments from your students worldwide. This way you can do what you do best and focus on teaching.
You help make the decisions that matter
Each MyCoolClass member has access to a members-only website with governance information, rules and regulations, election information, polls, and more. Any member can also run for the Board of Directors. We encourage our teachers to participate in the co-op.
Flexible and efficient payment
MyCoolClass offers a variety of payment options to ensure you get paid as efficiently as possible. We currently pay our teachers via Wise, PayPal or UK bank transfer.
All teachers are welcome
As long as you’re qualified to teach the subjects you offer, you’re welcome to join us! We don’t care about where you’re from, where you live, who you love, or what language you speak. Discrimination isn’t cool and has no place in education.
Teacher-Owned Platform Cooperative
Yes, that’s right! All teachers become co-owners and have a share in the co-op. In a cooperative, there is no “big boss” or investors who make all the decisions to increase profits. Each member has a stake in the co-op and an equal vote.
