How do I get paid for the lessons I teach?

As a lesson provider of My Weekend Plan, you agree that all transactions with your My Weekend Plan students will be processed through us. At no point should you accept money directly from your My Weekend Plan students. Other sites charge an up-front listing fee, an ongoing membership fee, or they charge you for each lead. Not us! We only make money when you do! Failure to comply with this guideline will result in your immediate removal from our site. That means our partnership would be over, and nobody wants that!

You will also receive a sales summary via email at the end of every month which includes payments due for all conducted classes for the current month.
My Weekend Plan will make payment to your designated bank account via Internet Banking after you have reviewed and confirmed the details. Please allow at least 3 working days for the payment to be processed by your Financial Service Provider.

How do new students find me?

To make it easier for students to find you, your lesson page should be attractive and easily contactable. Follow these guidelines to improve the chances of you getting more students!

1. Having clear, vibrant, artistic pictures of your product or past lessons
2. By providing us with all the information regarding your lesson when you apply for your FREE Lessons Listing
3. Include an outstanding write-up of your instructor
4. Be readily available to be contacted via Whatsapp to answer any questions that we will be relaying to you

Am I guaranteed to get new students?

Every lesson provider’s experience on our site is different – some receive new students right away and others have waited several months to receive their first student. Why? This variance can be influenced by two main factors;
(1) the demand for local lessons in your subjects and
(2) how informative and attractive your product page is.

Students pick their lessons based on many different attributes including travel distance, availability, student reviews, level and style of teaching, product and event photos, etc. We have come to realize that the more detailed and informative your product page is, the more chances of you getting a student. This may be because that with all the information online, it makes it easier for students to make a decision. this may also be because with a detailed and well written product page, you will seem more professional and trustworthy. Thus, increasing the chances that their investment in your lessons are good choices!
There are other things you can do to improve your chances, too, such as asking former students to leave positive reviews on your product page.
*Please note: We do not call before placing a new student with you! Students are booked based on a lesson provider’s availability, so if you have your lesson listed, we’ll assume you are available to teach!
