It is important for teachers to keep their availability updated so that students can request the times that work for you. Please note that changing your availability will not affect any lessons that have already been booked - those times are "locked in".
How to edit your time schedule
Click on the "Teacher Settings" option and then select the "Lessons and Availability" tab and “Teaching Calendar”. This will open up your Standard Weekly Schedule and Monthly Calendar.
Teacher Settings - Lessons and Availability- Teaching Calendar
Editing your Standard Weekly Schedule
Your Standard Weekly Schedule repeats every week. If you wish to edit specific days, scroll down for the Calendar view of the whole month.
If you have regular hours, then the standard weekly schedule will help you by copying these times into each week of the monthly calendar below.
Note: Whenever you change your Standard Weekly Schedule, it will overwrite your entire schedule for the future, except the time slots you have added in your Calendar. If you have made changes to certain days, you will need to delete or edit those dates again in Calendar view, which is below your Weekly Schedule.
How to add your available teaching times
Hover over the date and click the "+ Add" option.
How to delete a specific time
To delete a specific Time Availability period on your calendar, simply hover over a selected time period and click on the small trash can icon. Please note that this only deletes the selected period.
How to add a specific period of time to your calendar
To add a specific period of time where you are available to teach (e.g. you can teach this Thursday from 6pm - 9pm and want to add this to your calendar) click on the + Add icon at the bottom of the date cell on the calendar. Click on it and add your new time period. Please note that this only adds new time periods to the selected period. It will not automatically repeat on other days or weeks.
Clearing your time availability schedule
To set periods when you cannot teach, you simply need to delete your the time period from your schedule. You can delete your times for a specific date, time period, or a specific Date Range.
In Calendar view, look below the calendar for the "TURN ON VACATION" button.
Select the date range that you wish to delete and click submit.
Your teaching schedule for those dates will be cleared out.
This is useful if you are going on vacation or cannot teach for a longer period of time.
If you will be unavailable for a while
If you will be gone and cannot respond to lesson requests, please also go to "Lessons and Availability - Availability Settings" and set your lesson request availability status to "Allow lesson requests from Nobody". This will remove you from teacher search and no students will be able to send you lesson requests. You can reset your settings when you come back.
