Hallo: Live English Classes and Speaking Clubs

Have questions? We have answers.

Bookings (helpful videos coming soon...)

Everything you see is presented in your timezone but students will see it in their time zone. Your time will automatically adjust wherever you are! 

Private lessons are highlighted in green

Private Lessons:  When a student books a private lesson with you the student’s icon will show up on your schedule. A private chat is also created so you can communicate with your student. 5 minutes before your lesson, a “Join Now” button will appear on the homepage (on the left-hand side mid-page).  Click it to enter the class. If a student booked two or more lessons back to back, they get automatically combined into one lesson.

If teachers are 5 min late, lessons are cancelled automatically while if students are late, lessons will continue because students paid for their lessons. Three no shows from teachers will lead to revocation of teacher status.

Both students and teachers can’t cancel lessons within 1 hour before their lessons. Students can cancel 24 hours in advance and get a 100% refund and cancel within 24 hours and get a 50% refund.

At the end of each lesson including no shows and late classes, students and teachers can leave a review for one another.

Hallo uses a Bayesian Average to determine a teacher’s rating. It is a weighted average that is often used on sites where individual people receive ratings from others. When there are only a few data points, the Bayesian Average discounts the basic average, relative to the average of all the teachers on Hallo.

As the teacher receives more ratings, there is more confidence that the teacher’s basic average is accurate. Over time, as the teacher earns her own ratings, the Bayesian Average converges with the teacher’s basic average. If the student does not leave a rating for the lesson, the rating for the lesson will be 5 stars by default.
