Tutoring centers, language schools, and test preparation companies all operate in the education field, however these organizations have very different business needs than traditional classroom-based institutions. Teachworks is a business management application that provides tools for managing and monitoring all different types of education-based businesses.
The Teachworks platform includes modules for scheduling, student communication, billing, payroll, and analytics, among other features. Begin upgrading your own business practices by selecting which modules are most important within the context of your educational center. For example, if you run a driving school, you’ll probably want to begin by creating a company calendar where students can schedule sessions with specific instructors. On the other hand, if you manage a language school with younger students, then being able to communicate digitally with those students’ parents is probably a top priority. With Teachworks, you can also do things like set up automatic lesson reminders to go out to students before each class, along with notifications whenever new invoices have been sent or payments have been received.
Business owners can give their employees more autonomy by allowing them to have their own personal Teachworks logins. Giving employees access to Teachworks enables them to edit their own schedules based on availability and provide feedback to students with lesson notes. Teachworks even sends teachers their payslips via email, including all payment hours and details.
