How do I join TakeLessons?
The process of becoming a TakeLessons teaching partner is simple. All you need to do is fill out your profile details
and experience, complete a background check, and agree to our independent contractor terms. We are actively seeking
local and online teachers in every city in the United States and offer flexible online teaching options for teachers
How much does it cost to list my profile?
Listing your profile to book new students through TakeLessons is completely free and unlike other websites,
you never have to buy or bid for leads or students. TakeLessons assesses an administrative fee only when
a fully-paid student is delivered to you (to cover marketing costs, student payment processing, and more).
Once you start teaching lessons, you’ll earn up to 90% of the total lesson price per student. You have 100%
control over your earnings at all times.
How will new students find me?
Thousands of new students come to TakeLessons every day looking for the perfect private instructor to help them achieve
their goals. Students use our search filters to find teachers with awesome profile photos, detailed lesson descriptions,
reviews, and the Background Checked badge (very popular with parents). We provide all the tools you need to make your
way to the top of our search results where your profile will get the most views and bookings.
What happens when I get a new student?
Once a new student has booked and paid for lessons through your profile, we will send you an email alert and text
message notification ASAP so you can start doing your happy dance. You have 48 hours to accept every new student
through our online acceptance process.
Am I guaranteed to get new students?
No, we do not guarantee that you will receive new students. Why? The demand for lessons varies greatly depending on
your geographic area and the subjects you teach. If you teach a rare subject, we recommend adding a few additional,
more popular subjects to your profile (like singing, piano, guitar, or a foreign language) to improve your chances
of booking new students.
How do I get paid?
Every week, you’ll receive payment for any lessons you taught delivered directly to your bank account.
We handle all the billing and payment for your students’ lessons, so you never have to worry about accepting cash,
checks, or chasing anyone down for payment. It’s super convenient, secure, and hassle-free for everyone.
