What is Instant Book?
You now have the option to allow parents to Instant Book a Free Video Meeting with you.
This feature cuts out some of the back-and-forth between you and parents when you schedule a Free Meeting.
Rather than sending suggested times or accepting a parent's request for a Free Meeting, parents can now automatically confirm a Free Meeting with you at the times which you've offered.
It is completely your choice whether you choose to offer Instant Book or not. If you do choose to offer it, you'll appear higher in parent searches for that week, since we know you're available right now.
How does it work?
If you choose to offer Instant Book, you can opt in once you've boosted your profile, and select which hours you're available for a Free Meeting. We recommend that you keep this up-to-date regularly so that it reflects your availability for the upcoming week (and so you can stay high in parent searches).
You can also set your advance notice period. This sets the minimum amount of notice that you're happy for a parent to Instant Book a Free Meeting with you. For example, if you set this to 24 hours, a student can only book a Free Meeting with you at 24 hours' notice.
Parents can Instant Book with you directly (by selecting your profile when they're searching on our list), or via our Matching Team (who will speak to them on the phone to help them find the perfect tutor).
We'll then email you to confirm the Free Meeting, and we'll open a new message thread between you and the parent, so you can say hello.
