What do we check for in the entire process?
Prior teaching experience is not required.
We check for 3 skills and make sure that space and hygiene conditions are provided for.
Math ability : Cuemath teacher partners are required to handle the responsibilities of delivering learning outcomes to students by delivering the program. Therefore we check for proficiency with Math for teaching high school level classes.
Empathy with children : At Cuemath, we believe that knowing math is not enough to teach math to children, you must also have an ability to work well with children and to motivate them to learn. These attributes ensure that teachers deliver learning outcomes consistently.
Communicate effectively with parents : Teachers also need to work along with the Cuemath team to grow their learning centre by gathering enrolments from their vicinity. For this the ability to communicate well is required.
Space and Hygiene : Sufficient space at home to accommodate 6 students for running the centre.
What are the qualifying criteria to be shortlisted for training?
Before we begin the process we assess the following and follow it up with a telephonic screening.
- The applicant’s education qualifications
- Time commitment from the applicant, up to 6 students at a time
- Sufficient space at home to accommodate 6 students
- Continuity of the centre : Will the applicant continue for a sufficient period
The second level of shortlisting will be through a telephonic interview where one of our associates will have a detailed conversation about the role requirements and assess if the applicant fits the requirements.
The applicants are also briefed about the details on revenue, growth and management of the centre etc. The applicant’s understanding and agreement to these details is very important to make the decision of continuing the Cuemath journey.
What will be checked in the telephonic screening?
The telephonic screening will be to reconfirm some of the information that you have provided via the online application. Additionally there will be a few questions to understand your profile. Here are some indicative questions for you:
- Could you walk me through your profile?
- What made you choose Cuemath?
- How much do you know about Cuemath?
- Do you have any issues with any of the terms and conditions shared?
Do I need to pay? How much? Why?
A total investment of Rs. 6000 is needed to start your center.
Each Cuemath teacher needs to invest in a set of learning aids, collectively called the Math Box –
The Math Box is a collection of 15 physical manipulatives. Each set of manipulatives are designed to bring about deep conceptual understanding of math concepts taught in KG to 8th grade. The total cost of the Math Box is 6000 Rs currently.
Once registered, the teachers will need to complete a training course to understand the job responsibilities and acquire the additional skills to establish and manage the learning centre. At the time of registration you will need to pay a fee of Rs 6000.
The Rs 6000 payment is like an Earnest Money deposit and designed to make sure that only committed teachers progress into training, as the entire cost of the training is borne by Cuemath.
For more details on refund due to any reason please refer our policy.
Why do I need a tab?
In every class students will work on a Tab and complete aptitude exercises. The teacher will need to have a tab. If you already have a tab and it is one of the certified brands then a new tab need not be purchased. Else you will have to procure a tab which you can order of your choice from one of the e-commerce websites. Here is a list of approved tabs. The approximate cost would be Rs 7000. Cuemath does not procure tabs. You will need to procure a tab after you complete the training but before the certification.
Does paying the registration fee mean that I am accepted as a teacher?
Registration fee marks the acceptance of the application for the Cuemath teacher training program. The applicant needs to successfully complete the training courses to be certified as a teacher.

I was not accepted in the last attempt. Can I re-apply?
Yes. One can reapply to the role of Cuemath teacher partners. If you drop out, have not qualified you will be intimated by email. You can re-apply after 90 days from the date of this intimation.
My math skills are rusty, I have not done it for a long time. How can you help?
This is a common question. Most of our current teachers do not have a formal teaching qualification. Cuemath will train and certify you as a teacher before you begin a class. Refreshing the math knowledge and getting you up to speed is a major part of the training. Below are the key elements of training.
What does the training cover?
The Cuemath courses cover the following topics.
Math Knowledge : One math course is part of the certification training. Others can be taken after the initial certification based on need.

- How to accelerate learning through various strategies, what works, What does not?
- How to cue answers rather than simply giving them away?
- How to motivate students through intrinsic as well as extrinsic rewards?
The aim of the training is to prepare teachers to start their Cuemath center, confidently take their first Cuemath class, and most importantly ensure learning outcomes for all students.
How long does the training take?

Some time some extra courses will be assigned basis the assessment and that can also be typically covered within 7 days. All online training can be done on a mobile or laptop as per your convenience.

However after the online courses are completed you will need to go to the nearest Cuemath office or certification center for an in person assessment.
Online courses : Many prospective teachers may not be able to regularly travel for an offline course, a major part of the training is done online. All online training can be done on a mobile or laptop as per your convenience.

Each city office has a dedicated training team
Each of our city teams have a dedicated training team. In addition they are helped by existing Cuemath teachers who help train and hand hold the new teachers. These teachers are appropriately called buddies.
How does one get students?
Cuemath teachers get students by spreading the awareness through local channels and generating word of mouth. Events that showcase the teacher – called Math workshops help in spreading the word. A dedicated team of employees and Buddy teachers in cities help the new teachers to get students.
