Linguaspectrum PLUS provides teachers with an online teaching platform designed to enable teachers who lack the skills or desire to create a complex website and online teaching presence to do so easily and quickly.
Linguaspectrum PLUS is NOT an employment service and all teachers using the services offered on the site do so as freelance teachers. No employment contract has been entered into or implied by your being granted the use of the services offered.
All payments from students for Teacher Minutes will be paid to Linguaspectrum PLUS and processed by PayPal on behalf of Linguaspectrum PLUS. Earnings will be held for a period of 14 days from the date of payment to make sure that any complaints or disputes that may arise can be successfully dealt with. When the balance of payments received more than 14 days beforehand, less PayPal charges incurred by Linguaspectrum PLUS and less 10% of the gross payment, exceeds the teacher's payment threshold, the money will be transferred to the teacher from PayPal to an acceptable destination of the teacher's choosing.
The receiving party is responsible for any charges incurred in receipt of the payment.
All classes must be booked with teachers by students using the booking form provided in the Student Lounge. Under no circumstance must students book classes direct with the teacher. There are many features built into the system designed to protect both the student and the teacher. These features make sure that minutes bought and used are accurately recorded. They provide protection for the teacher for missed and cancelled classes. They ensure that students accept the terms and conditions of the site and are thus legally bound by them. They alert us to possible problems. Without the accurate recording of class time given and minutes bought, discrepancies will arise that may prevent us paying teachers the money they are owed when they request it.
Any teacher found to have dealt directly with students that they have secured through their participation in Linguaspectrum PLUS in order to deprive Linguaspectrum PLUS of income will have their account suspended with immediate effect.
Teachers are not employees of Linguaspectrum PLUS and are responsible for their own tax payments on earnings in compliance with the appropriate legislation in their country of residence. Linguaspectrum PLUS will in no way be liable for any taxes or other payments for individual teachers. Teachers are only using our services to facilitate their own freelance teaching practice.
Linguaspectrum PLUS provides an online teaching platform for teachers. This platform is designed to give the teacher a means to post their biography, information about their teaching, and their availability through a booking calendar to prospective students. Linguaspectrum PLUS makes no guarantees, implied or otherwise, that teachers will secure paying students through the use of our service.
As a Linguaspectrum PLUS teacher, you agree to treat students, prospective students, fellow teachers and Linguaspectrum PLUS staff with respect and you further agree to maintain the high standards on which Linguaspectrum PLUS has been founded. You agree to be on time for all booked classes and agree to communicate promptly and courteously with all of your students.
You must describe yourself truthfully in your online biography and in all communication with Linguaspectrum PLUS.
Any teacher found to have been dishonest or to have engaged in any activity which does, or would be considered to be likely to do, damage to the reputation of the Linguaspectrum PLUS community of teachers may be removed from the site and all outstanding payments returned to their students.
You also agree not to post any copyrighted materials, when the copyright does not belong to you, to this site and agree not to encourage any user of this site to use copyrighted materials beyond the limits of the copyright.
You, and you alone, are responsible for anything you publish on Linguaspectrum PLUS and you grant Linguaspectrum PLUS the right to edit or remove any information you post.
You are responsible for keeping yourself available for Introductory Class requests from students. You must log into the site at least once every 7 days and should update your teacher profile information at regular intervals. If you have not logged in to the site for 7 days or more, students will no longer be able to book Introductory Classes with you. If you have not logged into the site for a period exceeding 30 days you will be deemed to have no further use for this platform and your account will be put on hold pending appeal. Your on-hold account will no longer be usable for teaching purposes unless you can provide a valid reason for reinstatement of your account. We are under no obligation to email you regarding putting your account on hold. The first you will hear of it is an account on hold notice on your account when you log in. The decisions of the Linguaspectrum PLUS Management Committee is final and binding.
