Each lesson is scheduled in the calendar feature on your LingRoom personal dashboard (www.lingroom.pl). After a lesson has been completed, the tutor confirms its duration and provides a short synopsis. LingRoom will automatically send the student a request to evaluate the lesson. Once these actions have been completed, the tutor’s account will be credited. Tutors receive payments via direct banking transfer at the end of the month. LingRoom guarantees regular monthly payments provided that all documents/invoices are completed correctly.

You need to provide documents confirming your education background. These include a higher education diploma, language certificates, and any additional training. Please contact us for more information.

If you are a new teacher, you might consider offering a more competitive and lower price than usual in order to build up your community of students. Offering a lower price early on could help you get students and the first ratings/reviews on your profile. You can increase your rates at any time in the future. You should use the price indicator available on your dashboard to help you get an idea of the price ranges of other teachers on LingRoom.

a. Retain your students. Learning a language takes time and requires persistence. To help your students in their learning journey, encourage them to book more lessons with you. Ideally, you want your students to take lessons as frequently and as regularly as possible. Try to turn your lessons into a habit, and always suggest another class.
b. Encourage bulk purchases. Students become more committed and motivated when they purchase a cycle of lessons. 
c.  Be service-oriented and kind. Regardless of someone's background or attitude, it's always important to be friendly and polite to potential and existing students. Given the nature of LingRoom’s high teacher community standards, tolerance and openness are vital. As a partner of this community, please keep this in mind.
d. Be professional and reply quickly. It's important to consistently ensure that students have a great experience with you as a tutor. Since your students are also your paying customers, remember to maintain the proper level of professionalism.

If you work with LingRoom as a B2B partner, simply confirm the monthly summary report sent to you by LingRoom, prepare, and then send your invoice to our accountancy department.

With LingRoom, you pay for your personal teacher and nothing more. Direct lessons – an individual with a teacher or in a group with other students – are the most effective and proven way to achieve success in learning a foreign language. LingRoom offers a highly accessible and convenient way to search and book private language lessons. Make the most of your choice by selecting from a large database of teachers who offer a range of courses and have varying rates. This should make it easier for you to find the right fit for your particular needs. As a LingRoom user, you pay only for your learning.
b. Personal choice. Choose a teacher who is right for you. Make an informed and independent choice from a database of hundreds of highly experienced teaching professionals who have achieved at the highest level of education and come with excellent references. Try several teachers to find the teacher that is right for you. Change teachers depending on your needs. The teacher will teach what you want to learn, and the lesson will move at your desired pace. Lessons are tailored to your level, pace, and interests.

b. Once you've completed step a), get in contact with a potential teacher.
c. Compose and submit a request to a teacher, informing them of your language learning goals and the type of lesson you are interested in. In addition, send a short self-introduction message to the teacher. It is advisable to contact more than one teacher so that you can have a few options. Although some teachers may respond quickly, others may take more time. It is also important to get a sense of which teachers fit your learning style.
d. Once you have chosen a teacher, select the course you would like to take.  Teachers offer different courses at different prices.
e. You will receive an offer of a trial lesson with your selected teacher(s) from the LingRoom platform; you will also be required to respond to the offer.

If the trial is not free of charge, you will be asked to pay for the trial lesson using LingRoom’s secure payment system.
f. Once you have confirmed your wish to have a trial lesson, you will receive a confirmation of the trial lesson from the teacher. The teacher must formally accept your lesson request and has 48-hours to either accept or decline your lesson request. If the teacher does not accept or decline your lesson request within this 48-hour period, the session request will automatically expire and you should repeat the teacher search process, i.e., from step a.
g. Once you have received formal confirmation from your chosen teacher about the lesson, you will be able to plan the date, place, and time of your trial lesson via the dashboard calendar.

k. Once your payment is accepted, you will receive a formal teacher confirmation of the course you have purchased. You and your teacher will then be able to plan the dates, places, and times of your language journey.

Every tutor responds differently. LingRoom does its best to encourage teachers to respond promptly.

If your booked lesson does not take place, we will provide a full refund or a replacement teacher of your choice.

After the first trial lesson and, based on teacher’s assessment, you will receive a suggestion from your teacher about the number of the lessons you should take. A teacher may advise not only on the number of lessons but also on the duration of the lessons. Package payments guarantee the safety of your money as the teacher gets paid only after you confirm that each lesson took place.
