Rules and Recomendations

Embrace cutting out everything that needlessly adds cost or complication.

No grades.

Grades imply both the student and teacher are doing extra work just for the sake of the grade. Cut it out and save time.

Feedback, questions, and answers are still encouraged. A student and teacher benefit from knowing how well the student is grasping the material. But a grade should not be the end goal. Too often, in college, you can find a student and teacher burning time arguing over a grade. No need to bother with that here.

One day at a time.

Another important cost and conflict cutting measure is only pay for one class day at a time just before class.

How is this a cost saving? For students, it lets them stop (or skip) when they want (or need) to. For teachers, it means less customer service. In college (or a certificate program) a student dropping out often leads to a request for a full or partial refund. That leads to time spent in a negotiation and/or a refund.

Student, teachers, and locations earn ratings over time.

We've kept it simple. Each class day, a 'like' is assumed for both student and teacher. If you want to change the rating, go to that class profile and 'dislike' it.

Whether or not a teacher has repeat students will be factored into the teacher rating.

No refunds (except in extreme cases).

By paying the teacher one class at a time and right before class, the student is lowering his or her financial risk. However, the student is also eliminating the need to refund money due to a cancellation. The student is putting his or her money at risk for just one class. If the teacher or class was not satisfactory (as long as it wasn't criminal) we encourage the student to stop signing up for classes with that teacher, and/or give them a bad rating. If it was criminal, please, ensure your safety first, report it to the local authorities as appropriate, and finally email us about it.
