Teaching System: Changes to Free Trial


Dear italki Teachers,

We wanted to tell you that we have been listening to your feedback, and that we are busy working on improving the teaching system.  Big changes will be coming soon.  In the meantime, we wanted to tell you about some small changes we've made.

Students now must purchase italki credits in order to use free trials.

Some students were only interested in getting free lessons from teachers.  Now students must demonstrate they are willing to pay for classes by first purchasing italki credits.

We hope this will increase the probability that a free trial student will turn into a paying student.  Likewise, we hope that you will respond to all requests for lessons (even if it is just to decline them).  As always, if you do not wish to offer free trials at all, you can change this in your personal settings.

The new system we are working on should be able to handle many features that you have requested, like lesson packages.  We will let you know as soon as the new system is ready!  Please keep on sending us your thoughts on how we can improve the system.  You can send us ideas through our feedback system.  Thank you again for your patience and we'll put up the new system as soon we can.




good job.
