How does delivery time work for tutors giving lessons?

Hi
I’m an online English tutor and I’m trying to create a gig. But I’m a little confused over how to set my delivery time. Usually a student contacts me and we agree a time on my calendar for a lesson. But if I set a delivery time does it have to happen within a specific number of days. My availability is different every week.

Also, a lot of my students book weekly lessons, and I offer discount packages if they buy 10 hours upfront. With one or two lessons a week, this won’t take place within the 30 days.

I’d appreciate and advice from any tutors out there.

So, I have no idea how it works in this field, so I’d suggest looking into similar gigs and how they work. But, the first thing that came to mind was delivering a calendar with all the dates and the subjects you’ll be covering? Although I’m not sure sure how this sits with the ToS, so I’d ask CS before doing that.

Hi, I totally understand what you mean. I tutor Python to students from Fiverr and experience the same issues.

I’m pretty sure (or maybe it was just a dream) I saw a Fiverr article somewhere about certain calender apps that can help with appointment bookings which you can then put into your requirements once a buyer has booked. It’s pretty neat.

When I find the article, I will share it here with you.

In relation to booking the class over a period of time, I am thinking of tweaking my gig wording so that the buyer is actually buying “a commitment to a booking + some resources”. If they don’t show up to the appointment then they simple will lose out but still have the resources. I know this sounds harsh and I guess it will lead to some issues but I will give the opportunity to give 24 hours notice.

I’ve had one customer who booked 10 but then he kept failing to show up, which meant I could have made other plans instead of sitting around at my computer waiting for him to come online.

Here was the link I was referring to before:

https://sellers.fiverr.com/en/article/going-live-best-practices-for-selling-live-services-on-fiverr-using-video-calls

edit: no idea why but this hyperlink does not go to the right place. I can only access it if I go to the edit requirements section of my online tutoring gig.

it depends how much estimated time anyone take to complte the task.coz being human we hae busy schedule in life such as, cooking, outing, lunch/dinner, sleeping, meet friends, gym or exercise. everyone can better know that how much time he/she can spare for this work.
please take your time and try to calculate how many hours you can spend on fiverr.
