EXTENDED BONUS: Earn Up To $20/Hour on Cambly Kids

Dear Cambly Kids tutors,

There are a lot of new Cambly Kids students excited to meet you! To help you connect with these students, we are offering a special bonus.

From Monday, June 28 to Sunday, August 8th, you will be rewarded for completing reservations. For every ten reservations you complete, you will receive a special bonus! For example, if you complete 20 reservations (~10 hours) in a week, you will receive a $30 bonus. If you complete 40 reservations (~20 hours) in a week, you will receive a $100 bonus. Please see the table below for more details on the bonus structure.

While we want to create meaningful connections between students and tutors, we also want our tutors to take care of themselves! Please be mindful of your energy level. Our students definitely recognize and appreciate it when you are fully present and bring your best self to lessons. 😊 Thank  you for helping our young learners from all over the world and making a difference in someone’s life every day!

For questions, please see Q&A below. If you have additional questions, comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to message Tutor Support! We love hearing from our tutors, don’t be shy!

Happy Tutoring!
Cambly Kids Team


If I complete 35 reservations this week, how much bonus will I receive?
Congrats for completing 35 reservations! If you complete 35 reservations, you will be paid $60 in bonus. However, if you complete 5 more and have 40 completed reservations, you will be paid $100 in bonus.

What counts as a completed reservation?
Great question! Please complete the full 30 minutes in the lessons whenever possible as parents pay for the full 30-minute lesson. Any unused minutes cannot be used or rolled over once the reservation time ends. However, we totally understand that at times, students might show up to class late, which is something outside of your control. This is why we will count any reservations above 25 minutes a qualified reservation for the bonus. We have seen that tutors who send a reminder message to students prior to class have the highest student attendance rate. Plus, it demonstrates to parents that you really care and look forward to the lesson. 😊 Give it a try!

Do I need to tell someone after I completed x reservations? Do I need to send in screenshots?
No need! We will do a weekly calculation to see how many qualified reservations you’ve completed and pay you directly! Please focus on tutoring and let us take care of the logistics!

When and how will I get paid?
Payment will be on Mondays in a separate PayPal transaction!

How far out should I open my reservation calendar?
Depends on what works for you! Some tutors open their reservation calendars six months in advance. Others open their calendars one month in advance. Those tutors who open their reservation calendars at least three months in advance often get booked consistently with regular and serious learners. In addition, students, parents and tutors all appreciate the consistency and predictability in schedule.

  1. The only reason (2) I have not already joined CK is I dont want to give up my regular adult (ages vary widely) students. I will see if I can keep my ongoing students and add CK. also I am more “mature” and wonder about my energy level for CK. just being aware before starting. the higher pay is definitely a benefit.

    1. Thank you for your comment! You can always teach your adult students more than your CK students. ☺️ Also, don’t worry about being too mature for CK! The kids always give you so much energy because they’re so sweet and eager to learn!

      1. I am 64 and love teaching on CK. However, the younger ones or any kids with a very low level of English are definitely draining.

      2. Hey Susan! Haha, teaching kids requires a lot of energy at times. We’ll address how to keep your motivation and energy while teaching CK on the blog very soon. Thank you for your comment and happy tutoring. 🙂

      1. I would love to get involved. I applied 4 weeks ago and have not heard back from Cambly kids! I would love to know when I will hear back so I could take part in the reward programs.

      2. Hi Abbey! We have certainly seen an influx of applications over the past couple of weeks. You should write into Tutor Support to ask for an update on your CK profile! 🙂 Best of luck!

  2. Brilliant initiative and certainly appreciate this as it makes such a difference! Let’s hope it is extended!! Thank you Cambly

  3. Will this continue past the 11 July by any chance? Was thinking of switching over to CK but I see I have missed this reward time slot already!

    1. Hi, Michelle! I will ask the team about an extension, but as of right now, the bonus is set to end on July 11th! Thank you 🙂

  4. I am a regular Cambly tutor for adults. My rating is 4.92 star/super tutor. However, I often get calls from children aged 12 to 14 years of age. Would it be possible to add some content to the Cambly library so that when we get these unexpected calls we have some content to refer to. I also taught children for a Chinese company for two years but donated all my props to charity when I went back to full-time employment at our local university. Do I need additional props to teach on Cambly kids or is the content provided for each lesson sufficient.
    Many thanks and best wishes,

    1. Excellent point, Judi! To answer your question, no, you do not need additional props to teach on Cambly KIds. However, many tutors have reported a few benefits of having some extra material close by to assist them. I hope that helps! I will also pass your recommendation over to the curriculum team about some CK material on the regular Cambly to see if we can make that happen for you. 🙂

    2. I second this! I’ve also always been curious why when you’re not a CK teacher do you get children on your schedule?

  5. It’s better than the last bonus it was pretty hard to submit photos of new students ended up losing a lot especially if you teach students with the same name

    1. I understand where you are coming from with similar names, Julia. However, if you write into Tutor Support, they would be happy to help you sort this issue out. We are here to help! 🙂

  6. Will reservations completed on Monday July 12th be counted? Seems like no, but I just wanted to check.

  7. If cambly considered extending a little more given all the tech issues this week then that would be *chefs kiss* I sadly lost out on a level due to the issue where we can’t be seen/heard by the students *cries*. Either way this made a big difference to my life the past month, thank you Camfam! <3

    1. Hi Kylie! I’m so sorry that you experienced some tech issues this week. Your wish is our command, we have decided to extend the CK bonus to August 8th! Have a lovely week! 🙂

    1. Hi Marc! Great question. We’ve received a lot of questions similar to this one, and I can assure you that we are looking into our options.

  8. Yes, please consider making the bonus system a permanent plan. It made such a difference in my life. The wage was now a competitive wage with the bonus in place, and being that CK is a 24/7 schedule, CK would have the rest beat. Please don’t take the bonus away🙏🏼

    1. Hi Amy! Thank you so much for your concern and comment, we’re blown away by the positive feedback regarding the bonus. Rest assured that our team is discussing options for more bonuses moving forward!
