"It's raining students!!! I have gotten 10 (ten!!!!) new students in the last week, including 3 just today. Before TakeLessons, I worked online for an Asian based ESL company. I used to hate my job. There was so much stress. When I got enough TakeLessons students last December, I was able to stop giving classes with the other company. My husband comments all the time how much less stressed I am and how much I laugh when I am working now. I am so happy with my TL experience. I have only been with them since last October. I had a handful of students early on but then my schedule blew up at Xmas time. Right now I have 37 active students. It has helped me grow my business as a self-employed person. I love making my own schedule, being my own boss and controlling the way I teach and the materials I use. And for the first time since I finished school, I am putting money away each week and thinking about purchasing a home within the next year."
"I have been with TL for about 6 months. I started my own music studio 6 months ago with zero students. Today, 6 months later I have 49 students. I teach violin, viola, and cello. I offer in-person and online lessons and I live in Pittsbugh, PA. I do have a Bachelors and Masters degree in viola performance and I am certified to teach Music K-12 in PA and NC and have taught for over 20 years. Prior to becoming self employed, I was unemployed for 18 months. I signed up with TL and a few other services to start my business. Now, I have been receiving a new student almost every week. To those who are unsure about TL, it works. I am proof of it. I have taken time on my profile, keep my calendar up to date, have lots of reviews, a video, and increased what and how I teach. I have invested a little money for a cello and some equipment for lessons, but I have made back that investment plus more. I appreciate everything TL does and feel very fortunate to be part of this community!"
"Shout out to TL! I market with "other lessons companies" and they are not nearly as organized and well managed as the TakeLessons team. They know our time as busy teachers is valuable and that we do not have time to deal with unnecessary tasks. #blessed"
"TakeLessons is by far the greatest partner I've ever had for recruiting students, handling problems, and advertising. I launched my profile in December of 2015, slowly filled in all the details of my profile, got a few of my past students to review me on the site, and started getting messages like crazy! Here we are about 3-4 months later and I have roughly 25 students with TakeLessons, and they're my single biggest monthly check (when all the weeks are added together). My affection for TakeLessons in unending, as you literally keep food on my table, because my fiance has since had to quit her job because of an injury, and we're able to stay afloat thanks to you all helping me over the months and excellent student retention incentive model. Hats off to you all!"
"My business wouldn't be a business if it were not for TL. There once was a time when I was struggling with two jobs and the additional money I made from teaching kept me alive. I can honestly say that I would not be in the position I'm in today without TL. Today, I use the tools that TL provides on a daily basis whether it is plugging my site on social media, checking my schedule, looking at my income in terms of positive or negative gain. It all adds up. Can't say enough good things."
"I want to thank TakeLessons for setting me up with 3 new students in the month of March! More importantly, I want to thank TakeLessons for teaching us partners how to build a good profile (through the Partner Training Academy) and other many useful skills about being an entrepreneur. I know that success comes AFTER you put in the work yourself :). Also thank you to the staff who is always so incredibly helpful and they are always here to serve us. I've never met such a great group of people! So basically, thanks for helping me live my dream of having a stay-at-home career!"
"I have been with TakeLessons for several years now and am so grateful for all of the wonderful students they have brought my way!! They have played a significant part in allowing me to do what I love full time. I will be forever grateful for the support, encouragement, resources and incredible opportunities that TakeLessons has provided me. Please know how much what you do is valued and appreciated by all of us who continue to benefit from all of your hard work and dedication!"
"I started with TakeLessons about 4 years ago, when our family was struggling financially. I have since made connections with some wonderful people I would have otherwise never met. I have grown my business both in my home and out and have much more confidence as a professional. TakeLessons is wonderful and I am grateful to get to work with their team."
"Yesterday I tried the TakeLessons platform. I had never tried it because anything related to technology scares me :). But it was so easy and so helpful. The student loved it. It really makes you look more professional. Great job. Thank you!"
"In my opinion, TakeLessons not only sends us students but helps us to be more entrepreneurial, to build ourselves as business owners. Thank you TakeLessons for helping me get to the next level in my career!"
