About this pro
À Deux (or A2 Lessons) is a service devoted to bringing aspiring students together with qualified educators in their community. The teachers who work with us are generally independent instructors who use our service for the purpose of web marketing as well as for a form of security verification for students. The teachers who work with A2 are all background screened and go through a process similar to a job application as a quality check, ensuring that they are well qualified and able to meet students' needs. The vast majority of the cost of lessons goes directly to the teacher and stays in your community! We enjoy bringing quality education to students, and we are confident that you'll enjoy lessons with our qualified teachers. À Deux was founded by a small group of independent educators with some web marketing skills to help students find the best teachers in their community right away online with minimal effort searching around. We've since swelled our ranks with other teachers joining as independent members/contractors. We benefit teachers who join us by helping them find students in their communities. We do so by granting teachers access to our centralized organization and marketing strategies. By pooling resources, teachers have more advertising leverage that will give them the exposure they need to make a decent living, doing what they love without wasting valuable time and money trying to figure out how to find students on their own. What we truly love is spreading knowledge, so the more new teachers, students, and communities we can get involved, the better it is for all of us. It is a goal of ours to benefit our teachers, students, and their communities by ensuring that lessons are affordable, that fare rates are paid, and that small businesses can thrive within their communities. Making this happen is what we truly enjoy.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our rates vary depending on available teachers, subject, location, instructor experience/education, and a variety of other factors because we allow teachers to negotiate rates on a per-student basis. That being said, it is in our teachers' best interest to keep their prices competitive, so we are able to provide lower price lessons to students in need as well. We guarantee that our teachers' prices will always be a great value!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?À Deux will receive information about the student's background in the subject they seek to learn as well as find out information on the price range the student is willing to pay, their travel preferences, and their age. We also take into account any special requests students might have, and based on this information we will then assign the best available A2 Lessons teacher to suit your unique needs as a student.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All of our instructors go through a screening process similar to that of a traditional job application. Every teacher at À Deux has the educational/experiential background to be capable of teaching their students.
