Subscriptions are designed to add more flexibility for tutors and students. For students, a subscription is essentially an auto-renewable lesson package that isn't "assigned" to a specific tutor. Lesson prices for students are determined by subscription plans, not by tutors.
This way, subscriptions level the field for tutors, because, in this case, you compete with your skills and personality, not with your prices.
Elements of subscriptions:
1. 30-minute trial lessons
We believe that 30-minute trial lessons may become a great encouragement for students to subscribe to full-length lessons and see if the tutor matches their expectations and needs.
- The price for students is fixed - $3.49.
- Each student can have only 1 trial lesson with each tutor.
- Tutors get guaranteed the full amount of $3.49 per 30-minute lesson + an extra $10 and 2XP if the new student buys a subscription after the trial lesson.
For tutors, how much they get per lesson is based on their level (XP).
The tutor level (XP) depends on:
- How many completed lessons they've had in the last 365 days
- The number of new students who have bought a subscription after trial lessons in the last 365 days.
The more lessons you have, the higher your level, the more you earn.

How to get the most out of subscriptions?
1. Dedicate yourself to trial lessons.
A well-prepared 30-minute trial lesson can bring you $13.49 if the student subscribes after it and continues their learning path with you. Read more about the first steps in approaching your new student.
2. Keep your availability up-to-date and avoid rescheduling often.
Instant requests to reschedule lessons will cause students to doubt the seriousness of your intentions to regularly and effectively teach them, and may push them to look for a more stable learning process with another tutor.
3. Show the student that their goal is reachable.
Introducing a clear vision of the learning plan, which will correlate with the student's interests and needs, will convince the student they made the right choice with you.
