WAM Application

Before you start: WAM Clarification

WorldEd Affiliated Mentor (WAM) program is a combination of two services: the international certification, and membership. 

  • The International Certification: Upon completion, the teacher will receive a certification of "K-12 Certified Mentor" that recognizes their ability to assist students in the American K-12 curriculum. The certification is issued by WorldEd International School.  

  • Membership: The teacher who obtains the Certification will then be eligible to become a member. A mentor can tutor their own private students enrolled in any WorldEd Program. The teacher can also be invited by WED to support its students globally and be paid for it. 


The certification and the membership is a service provided by WorldEd to the private mentor. The initial fee includes 12 months of membership and the Certification. The membership may be renewed annually for continued affiliation.

WAM can support two kind of students:

  • Private students: Those are students obtained independently by the mentor. The mentor has full autonomy to determine their class fee for private students. WorldEd is not part of the service relationship between the Mentor and private students.

  • WorldEd Students: Those are WorldEd students. WorldEd can invite the WAM to mentor any WorldEd student. The WAM will receive a compensation payment per class.


The student must pay the program tuition fee directly to WorldEd School independently if the student is a WorldEd or Mentor student.

Step 1: WAM Application Form filling

Fill out the form below.


You will be contacted upon receipt and review.

Step 2: Credentials submission

WorldEd understands that teaching expertise can and does result from a variety of sources such as education, life learning, practical experience, and a combination of all of the above. All education and experience will be evaluated, including general teaching practice and English proficiency. We do like to ensure that our students will have the best learning experience possible, and a well-qualified mentor is a great part of it.

• Well-known certifications and test scores are a great way to provide evidence of English proficiency. These might include TOEFL, IELTS, CPE, TKT, TOEIC, SAT, ACT, GCE A Level, or equivalent;


• A degree or diploma from a secondary education institution where English is the primary language and the program duration is of greater than 3yrs can also be accepted (preferably in education or Language Arts);

Our academic department will analyze and reply (usually in 3 days). More documentation may also be requested.
