Also, feel free to share your profile page link on social media or email or postcards. Students can start chats directly from there.

What is the different between public and private feedback?

Students can leave both public and private feedback after a session. Private feedback is seen only by you, and public reviews appear on your profile.

We recommend services like Desmos for math and science, Replit for coding, and Loom for quick screen recordings.

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States

Your current sessions will remain active until ended by you or your students.

Students won't be able to start new sessions with you though.


Is there a minimum charge?

$1

How do teacher rates work?

Min Charge + (Minutes * Teacher Rate)

So a 10 min chat, with a teacher whose rate is $0.30/min would be: 1 + (0.3*10) = $4.

What is the processing fee?

There is a 15% platform fee, and a 3% payment processing fee. This combined fee is deducted from the session total before being transferred to the teacher.
