So you've been chatting with a student and agreed the time and date for your first session - congratulations! Next, you'll just need to make the booking on the website.
Students are able to request lessons via your profile if you've got your availability set, and if a lesson has been requested, you'll either just need to confirm the session for it to be booked in, or alternatively, if you're currently opted into our instant book system, the session will be automatically confirmed and ready to go!
Alternatively, you can also book in lessons with students - to do so, you can use the “Lessons” option at the top of your screen. Under “Upcoming Lessons” you will then see the button to “book a lesson”.
Fill in the details of your lesson together and check the lesson price at the bottom is correct - this is the amount the student will pay in total for the lesson, which is your hourly rate plus our service fee. As soon as you click "Create Booking" we'll add the lesson to our system and we'll email your student to ask them to confirm the session.
If you've booked more than a day in advance, students will then have up to 12 hours before their first session to confirm the booking by entering their payment details. We'll keep you updated and message you as soon as they've confirmed so you know you're good to go!
To book an online lesson:
If you are wanting to book an online lesson, you need to ensure that you are first set to teach online in your teaching preferences, and then there will be a special 'Online' option under location in the booking form.
Booking in a lesson as "online' will set aside a special online classroom just for you and your student on the day.
To book in-person lessons:
If you've arranged an in-person lesson with a student, you'll just need to select either the 'Student address, 'My address' or 'Other' option when selecting the location of the session. It's important to make sure you've agreed the location with the lesson with the student, and that you're both happy travelling to the place where the lesson is due to take place before booking it in!
To book recurring lessons:
While the default option is weekly, you can also book one-off sessions and fortnightly sessions by changing the selected option.
As the student isn't charged until after each session takes place, booking repeating sessions will not cause them to be charged before you've had these lessons!
Students really appreciate knowing their weekly tuition is sorted and booked ahead of time, so we'll always encourage you to make repeat bookings where you can.
To book a lesson through our app:
Just navigate to your schedule page and click the + in the bottom right-hand corner, then fill out the lesson details and click Book Lesson once you're done:
