1. Update your calendar
Teacher Settings -> Lessons And Availability -> Teacher Calendar.
If you are going on vacation, click "TURN ON VACATION". Then all your availability will be blocked immediately, the "Book Now" button on your teacher profile will not be available.
When you come back, click "BACK FROM VACATION". Then all your availability will be restored and students can book your lessons immediately.
2. Update your lesson request status
Teacher Settings -> Lessons And Availability -> Availability Settings
Set your lesson request status to "allow lesson requests from current students or nobody". This will prevent you from showing up in the "Find a Teacher" list.
3. Notifying your students
- Leave a message in your profile introduction, letting students know when you will be gone, and that you will not be able to reply to lesson requests.
For example: I will be away from April 3-17 and unable to reply to lesson requests.
- Send all your students a message that you are taking a break from teaching. If necessary, cancel the lessons or packages that you have with them.
4. If you are away for a very long time
If you do not log in once for more than 3 months, your profile will be automatically deactivated. If you wish to begin teaching again, you will need to resubmit an application. (All your profile information and lesson history are saved.)
