Responsibilities:

Tunelark Instructor - Tunelark (ends 4/14)

Description: 

Hi there! A little about Tunelark: We offer music lessons in people's homes and via video chat. Our instructors primarily offer traditional music lessons, but they also are trained to use Tunelark as needed to help students develop skills like note reading in between lessons. You can learn more about Tunelark on our website. We are accepting applications from prospective instructors on a rolling basis.

Qualifications: 

- Excellence in the instrument(s) you want to teach
- Ideally some experience teaching that instrument

Responsibilities: 

- Communicate in a timely way with Tunelark staff.
- Show up on time to lessons.
- Charge students for lessons through the Tunelark website.
- Play through some of the curriculum on Tunelark to familiarize yourself with it. This should take an hour tops.
- Assign educational games to students as needed to help them learn skills in between lessons.
- Respond within 24 hours to emails from students to provide quick answers to their questions or to tell them that you’ll make a note to answer their questions more fully during the next lesson.

Salary: 

Instructors are hired as 1099 contractors. As an instructor, you would earn 80% of the lesson fee (keep in mind that you’ll need to pay payroll and income taxes). For in-home lessons, lesson fees are $54 for 30 minutes, $69 for 45 minutes, and $79 for an hour. Instructor travel time is included in those rates. For video chat lessons, the fee is $1 per minute. So, for example, an hour in-home lesson results in $79 * .8 = $63.20 being paid out to the instructor. One important note: a student’s first lesson is free. That said, Tunelark pays the instructor half of what they otherwise would have earned had the lesson not been the student’s first lesson. In the above example, if the hour-long lesson had been the student’s first lesson, the instructor would have earned $63.20 / 2 = $31.60.
