How do new students find me?


Students search for lessons on

After you have completed your free TakeLessons teacher profile, you will appear in our online marketplace within 24 hours. New students use the search filters on to find your profile and book lessons with you.



Your TakeLessons profile increases your online exposure and your reach to new students with nationwide marketing. This listing is available to all potential new students browsing The locations that you have selected during your onboarding, will determine if your profile is listed in searches for local and/or online lessons.

Your profile can include photos, videos, diverse lesson offerings, and more. Students can filter results to view teachers who are nearby, have passed a Background Check, have lots of reviews, and so on.

Note: Starting January 1st, 2022 all new and existing contractors will be required to have a background check in order to provide services through the TakeLessons platform


NOTE: We do not call before placing a new student with you! Students are booked based on a teacher's availability, so if you have it listed, and your profile is live on the site, we'll assume you are available to teach!
