New Mobile and Online Tools by TakeLessons Combat Common Private Instructor Challenges By Simplifying Marketing and Eliminating Paperwork
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TakeLessons, an online marketplace that matches students with the best instructors, recently announced the availability of new online tools and a companion mobile app that help instructors grow and manage their private teaching business. The tools, designed for anyone who manages a roster of students, simplify scheduling, billing, and lesson management to allow instructors to focus on what they do best: teach.
Since the company's inception in 2006, TakeLessons has built a robust, nationwide marketplace that allows students to find and book lessons with the best, local instructors. With this new release, the platform is creating value beyond the initial transaction by simplifying the administration of each lesson. From coordinating re-schedules with busy parents to reducing friction around payment collection, the new tools offer solutions to an underserved market that has a thirst for new ways to leverage technology that supports their business.
TakeLessons is also introducing its first native mobile app which enables teachers to manage schedules and coordinate lessons with students while on the go. Over 70% of private instructors rely on smartphones to assist with business operations, and the TakeLessons companion app will help these teachers dramatically simplify lesson administration on their mobile devices.
"Our team has spent the past few years cultivating a trusted marketplace where music teachers can go to find a consistent flow of new students no matter where they live," said TakeLessons Founder / CEO Steven Cox. "Opening up TakeLessons.com and making our marketplace tools available to instructors in every field is a logical next step for our company. And as online marketplaces mature, the best platforms will continue to add lasting value beyond the initial transaction."
Over the years TakeLessons has been very focused on tackling the tough logistical challenges that come with matching in-person supply and demand at a local level for music instruction. The company is now leveraging this expertise to open up the marketplace to all instructional categories and offers online lessons for students who prefer that delivery method or can't find an expert that fits their needs locally.
TakeLessons is an online marketplace that matches students with the best instructors. Millions of students visit TakeLessons.com every year to find qualified and vetted instructors who offer online and in-person lessons in areas ranging from music, dance and acting to foreign languages, math and photography. Instructors rely on TakeLessons to simplify marketing and lesson administration by providing integrated scheduling, billing, payment, and communication tools that work seamlessly across desktop and mobile devices.
