A teacher will have a maximum of 48h (or the lesson starts time, whichever is sooner) to respond to a lesson request.
Your lesson is booked successfully only after your lesson request is accepted by your teacher.
If you don’t want to wait, simply filter by “Auto-accept” on the teacher search list to find teachers instantly accepting lesson requests automatically.
If your lesson request is declined, you will receive the credits returned to your student wallet.
Successfully purchased italki credits cannot be refunded to cash. Read more about our Credits Policies.
