Instant lessons are 30-, 45-, or 60-minute lessons that students request here and now.  

Trial lessons are 30-minute lessons that can only be booked as 1 lesson per tutor. Students pay $3.49 for the trial lesson and the tutor received the full price.

The trial lesson can bring you an extra $10 in case the student subscribes afterwords.
Such lessons are great for potential students who want to check out the platform and find a tutor for further learning

Instant lessons can only be booked with the tutors who have this feature enabled in their profiles.

To enable instant lessons:

Open "Tutor studio" > "Private lessons settings"

Here, you can choose if you want to receive instant lesson requests while you're online and/or offline.

Perks of enabling instant lessons:

  • You get a special badge on your tutor card and can be found through a special filter, which makes your profile more visible and increases your chances of being noticed and booked;
  • You can quickly get new lessons/students in case of canceled/rescheduled lessons;
In short, instant lessons are a time-efficient way to grow the number of your students and income.

If at any point you feel overwhelmed by the number of lesson requests you're getting, you can turn this feature off or just reject any of the incoming requests.
