It all starts when you create your free profile where you can list the categories you teach, describe your teaching style, highlight past accomplishments, and upload photos and videos. Your profile has everything new students need to feel confident booking lessons with you.
For more information, review our teacher requirements and policies.
After your profile has been reviewed and accepted, students will be able to find you in search results. When a new student books, either online or via our call center, you'll be notified via email. We ask that you contact the new student within 48 hours.
Remember - these are not prospects. When we notify you, it means that a student has booked and paid for lessons. No false alarms!
Once a new student is placed with you, both of you will be able to see and manage the schedule in your online accounts. Students are able to cancel lessons or request a lesson be rescheduled. You'll have to approve any reschedule request before a lesson is moved.
Our scheduling tools make it easy to stay on top of your busy calendar.
Billing couldn't be easier when you're working with TakeLessons. We automatically bill your student according to the billing plan they've selected.
You'll get paid every Friday based on lessons that you've marked complete in your online account. If your student misses a lesson without notifying you in advance, you still get paid for that lesson. Ready to get started?Create Your Free Profile
