Apart from competitive remuneration, salaried teachers at Zabaan can also expect a 5-10% annual salary increase based on performance, 12 days of paid vacationfree beverages throughout the day, free lunch, and free 90-minute classes in a language or subject directly relevant to the employee’s work — 1 class for part-time teachers, 2 classes for full-time teachers.

Zabaan is hiring hourly employees with expertise in a culture-related topic or proficiency in HindiUrduGermanFrenchTamilBengaliGujaratiKannada or Telugu.  Those with teaching experience seeking a flexible hourly schedule and a desire to convert their skills into an additional source of income will be compensated at a rate of 500 INR per hour.  Hourly employees also receive free beverages and free lunch during their teaching hours.

In addition to teachers with language proficiency, Zabaan is looking for teachers with knowledge about cultural subjects related to any of the languages we offer.   Keenly aware that exposure to various aspects of culture — such as food, architecture, festivals, sports, music, movies, dance, and the like — provides additional context for language learning, Zabaan is interested in offering courses on a wide variety of culture-related topics. 

Knowing how difficult it is for independent teachers to find teaching space that is affordable, comfortable, and fully equipped, Zabaan now offers classrooms for rent. Three different sizes of rooms can accommodate private lessons, large group classes, or anything inbetween.  Rental rates depend on the number of students in the class:

  • Classroom for 1-3 students600 INR per hour.
  • Classroom for 4-8 students1000 INR per hour.
  • Classroom for 9-20 students2250 INR per hour.

Classrooms are regularly cleaned, generously dimensioned and well-equipped with white boards, markers, printers, AC, Wi-Fi and unlimited in-room beverage service for teachers and students (10% surcharge applicable).  Black and white printing is available for 1 INR per page, while color printing is available for 7 INR per page. Independent teachers also receive free lunch shared with the Zabaan team if prepared during their class hours.

To reserve a classroom, send an email to scheduling@zabaan.com with your CV/résumé and a brief description of the course you’d like to teach at Zabaan.
