Why be a Millie Academic Mentor

Academic mentoring is more than tutoring.

We don't call our mentors "tutors" because tutors teach and mentors inspire. Millie is different because we try to guide students along their educational and career paths rather than just delivering.

Our courses and programs offer targeted small group online classes that provide guidance through the maze of international university applications and preparation for the academic hurdles ahead. Alongside delivering learning, our mentors consult with students and parents on their needs to advise them on the best standard or customised program for them.

Our experienced team is also here to provide training and support to get you started as a Millie academic mentor, and you'll have the opportunity to network with other academic mentors who have studied and worked at the world's best institutions.

Mentoring with us is simple because you can do everything from home, as our services are delivered 100% online.

What we look for in a Millie academic mentor

A full life experience

A breadth of academic study, travel and an interesting career will make you a great Millie mentor. We look for people who can inspire beyond academic boundaries.


For our academic mentors, who teach the paid courses in our programme, you need to be passionate about education and enjoy sharing your knowledge. You will have an excellent academic record, with a high grade/score average if you are still studying, or have graduated from a top university in your subject area. 3+ years tutoring experience in your chosen test / curriculum would also be an advantage.


You are quick and enthusiastic to adapt to new communication tools and multi-way communication (across our online platforms, google calendar, zoom for video sessions, etc.). You are able to engage with your students outside of formal sessions (on WhatsApp, Instagram, Kakao – you name it!).


You have studied at an international high school, or college in another country, or have significant work or living experience abroad.

Dedicated team
