Changing the lesson prices
Individual lessons have a duration of 30, 45, 60 and 90 minutes. You can choose a price for these time durations and type them into the box under Individual lessons. Click here to learn more about price setting.
For Lesson Packages, you can choose how many lessons you would like per Package. When you have chosen, you can add the price (which cannot exceed the price of the same number of individual lessons).
For example, if you choose to charge $15 for 1 lesson and your Lesson Package contains 5 lessons, the price for the Package should not be more than $75.
When students see your courses on your profile page, they will not see how much a single lesson costs in a Lesson Package. They will only see the total price of the Package.
