Students can go to the teacher search page and look for teachers that have schedules that work best for them. 

If a student books a private lesson with a teacher on the teacher’s profile, the teacher’s info will show up for the private lesson on the schedules page. When it’s time for your lesson, a button called “Join Now” will show up on the schedules page that will take you to the lesson when you click on it. Also, if a student booked two lessons back to back, they get automatically combined into one lesson so the student and teacher don’t need to leave the first lesson for the second lesson. 

All private lesson schedules are based on your time zone, and Hallo sends you a push notification 30 minutes in advance just in case you forget. We recommend that students check their schedules frequently so they don’t miss their lessons or aren’t late. Enjoy!

If you are late for your lesson, it’s okay as long as you join the lesson before it ends. If you didn’t show up before the lesson ended, you don’t get a refund. We recommend that students keep track of their schedule.
