Starting the lesson F.A.Q

I made a reservation with a teacher. What now?

When you make a reservation, we will send you an e- mail confirming your lesson. Also e- mails will remind you of your lesson, 24 hours before the lesson, an hour before the lesson and at the time of the lesson. 

Only thing you have to do is to have www.preplesson.com open, and it will take you directly to your lesson. In the video screen, please click on "I am ready" and wait for your teacher to arrive. You will be asked to allow the use of your camera and microphone, please allow these. 

If for any reason, you leave the video screen, please click on "Reservations I made" and click on your current lesson and you will be connected to the video again. 

How long are the lessons?

All lessons are one hour long. Preplesson allows for slightly longer lesson times because teachers and students maybe a little late sometimes. It is the teacher's duty to end the lesson in one hour. 

How are lessons delivered?

All lessons are live, one one one with teachers. Preplesson uses Skype to have lessons. After you book your lesson with your teacher, add him/her on Skype and start the lesson when lesson time comes. 

Are we on the same time as my teacher/ student?

It doesn't matter where you are from, Preplesson automates timezones, so you always see someone's calendar on your own timezone.

My internet connection may be too slow, can I still use Preplesson?

Getting Paid F.A.Q

I have finished a lesson with a student but my fee is still not shown on my "Wallet"

It takes upto three hours since the start of the lesson for the money to appear in your account. Until that time is will be shown as "Pending". 

How much does Preplesson charge for its services?

Preplessons charges a total of 15% of the value of the lesson. This 15% includes credit card charges, and costs of sending transactions to teachers. Students pay exactly the lesson fee, no other cost, the teachers receive 85% of the value of the lesson. No other expenses. 

My account balance in "Wallet" is always changing. How is that possible?

Preplesson always calculates all values in US Dollars. However, your account balance is shown in your local currency. When currencies fluctuate, you will see that the amount of money in your balance change slightly. You can check your real US Dollars balance at the bottom of "Wallet" page. 

What is a trial lesson?

Trial lessons are 30 minutes long and they are half the price of the lowest priced lesson of the teacher. Preplesson sometimes organizes campaigns for free trials, and every student may have 5 free trial lessons from 5 different teachers. Students can not have more than one trial lesson with one teacher. After a total of 5 free trial lessons, other trial lessons are not free but still half priced. 

How do I reschedule a lesson?

If you are sure you won't be able to attend the lesson, you can cancel it and ask your student to make a new reservation. 

What happens if my student cancels a lesson?

If a student cancels a lesson 24 hours before a lesson, the full amount is returned to the student. If a student cancels after this, they will get a 50% refund, and you will be awarded 50% of the value of the lesson.

How will I be paid?

Each lesson awards your fee three hours after the start of the lesson.

Go to "Wallet" and withdraw money. Then you can either request a bank transfer at a cost of 10 USD per transaction, or you can claim your earnings by Skrill. Skrill offers a high level of security and is cheaper compared to more famous payment portals. You will need to confirm your e- mail address and we will send the money to Skrill to be claimed by your e- mail address only. You can open an account at Skrill easily and collect your money using your e- mail address. In the meantime, Skrill will send you an e- mail to let you know Preplesson has sent money to you.

How does the reference system work?

When you log in to www.preplesson.com, please click on the affiliation program link, you can see your individual reference link. You can copy paste this link onto any social media. When any student who click on this link and get directed to www.preplesson.com to purchase any lessons, you will be awarded 5% of the value of the lesson. The payment is done directly to your Preplesson account one hour after the lesson is finished. You can then claim this by requesting payment to your Skrill or local bank account. You don’t have to purchase lessons to use this award, so all bloggers are welcome.

How do packages work?

Packages are group of lessons which you can purchase at (usually) a lower price. All teachers have 5 or 10 lesson packages. You can always purchase lesson packages from teachers, usually at a discount. Teachers may choose different discounts for 5 and 10 lesson packages, so they are usually better value. You should use your lessons in your package in one year. 

How often do I get paid?

Preplesson makes payments to all teachers on Wednesdays.

You need to request funds at least one day before that Wednesday to be eligible for that payday. 

How much should I charge?

Check out what other teachers are charging. Casual teachers tend to charge around 10-30 USD per lesson, while professional teachers have a wider range of prices. The best way would be to start teaching at a lower price, and gradually increase your prices when you gain more reviews. 

How much can I earn?

This depends on how much time you are going to spend teaching at Preplesson. There are teachers who teach 10+ lessons every week, at prices of 40 USD. This would gather an income of around 1300-1400 USD per month.
