How Apprentus Works
Create Your Free Profile
It's completely free to post a class on Apprentus. Click the yellow 'Post a Class' button on the top of any page on the site. This will take you to a form where you can list the categories you teach, describe your qualifications, your teaching style, your location, prices and experience for potential students to review.
It is up to you to decide how much you charge. You can set different prices for lessons provided at student's location or at your own location as well as advanced lesson duration pricing.
Your profile is the place where you need to showcase your qualifications and experience for potential students to feel confident booking lessons with you.
Collect student ratings and reviews, fill out a detailed profile of yourself, including your education, teaching methods, past accomplishments and upload photos that shows off your personality so that students learn more about you.

Millions of people search online for private teachers every day. Every year, hundreds of thousands of new students and parents come to the Apprentus website to find a teacher.
Students will be able to find you in search results and will message you directly through Apprentus to ask you questions about you and your class, as well as confirm availability. You'll be notified via email.
Use this opportunity to ask questions and get comfortable with your potential students. No personal information will be exchanged until after a reservation is accepted. We ask that you reply the new student within 48 hours.
If you like, you will be notified via SMS.
You never have to accept a booking unless you're 100% confident.
Good communication is key to being a successful teacher. You might want to ask question like what is the purpose of the class and you can always request that prospective students connect with Facebook in case you need additional peace of mind.
Book New Students
When you receive a reservation request, you have 48 hours to accept or decline the request or it will expire.
You're always in control of who books your class. We encourage you to reply to every request, even if just to decline it, as expired requests will negatively affect your search results.
It's free for the teachers to list and to sell classes on Apprentus.
Depending on the location and category of the class, we may add a variable fee on top of the amount the teacher charges which lets Apprentus provide services like our Good-Fit Guarantee and customer support.
When a reservation is paid directly via on-line payment and accepted by the teacher, we immediately charge the student for the full cost of the reservation, but we hold on to the money until 24 hours after their lesson date.
Managing your business
Get the tools and support you need to manage your own successful teaching business. Our scheduling tools make it easy to stay on top of your busy calendar.
Once a new student booked a class with you, both of you will be able to see and manage the schedule in your online accounts. Students are able to cancel lessons or request a lesson be rescheduled. You'll have to approve any reschedule request before a lesson is moved.
Apprentus customer support is available 7 days a week to ensure you and your students have an excellent experience.
