TEACHER FAQ

1. Do I have to have a degree to teach with Handy Ande?
No, but you do have to show that you have done successfully what you say you can teach.

2. Who decides what the tuition is for my class? You do, and we can help you.

3. Who decides the date I will teach my class? For the most part, you do. Scheduling is also a factor.

4. Who decides how many or how few students will attend my class? You do, and we can help you.

5. Who is responsible for generating interest in my classes? The school is, and you're invited to actively promote your courses as well.

6. What if only two people register for my class? You have the option of canceling or postponing to a future date.

7. What if nobody registers for my class? Then we consider it a test. Not all classes will fly.

8. Can I teach my class both online and offline? Yes.

9. How do I get accepted as a Handy Ande teacher? You must submit a bio of your qualifications, a brief description of the class, and a lesson plan. See the submissions page.

10. Who owns the copyright to the class? If it's your original idea and you fully develop it yourself, it's yours. If it's our idea and we develop the description and lesson plan it belongs to us or the creator of it.

11. Can I admit my own clients or students to my class? Yes, but they must first register with Handy Ande, just as all other students.

12. Can I teach my class other places while teaching for Handy Ande? No. That would put us in a competitive disadvantage and our investors would not be happy. If you find you can teach your own class elsewhere - with your own content, not ours - at a better profit than with us, be honest with us. You are welcome to leave us at any time with our blessing. If you leave on good terms, you can always come back to us if your alternative situation doesn't work out.

13. Are teachers employed by Handy Ande? No, you are classified as independent contractors. We pay you for services rendered. You pay your own income tax.

14. What would get us fired? A lack of integrity, character, and standard of care toward your students; dishonesty, badmouthing faculty or students, too much self-promotion in your classes and too little useful content.

15. How much will I be paid? Your teaching fee will be about 40% of the student fees from your class. You can also charge a reasonable materials fee for handouts or workbooks.

16. What happens to the other 60%? Of every $1000 earned, 10% covers payment transaction fees and marketing. 50% pays both Andrea Reynolds, owner-founder, and the investors.
