Huckleberry English School recruits students to be introduced to native-speaking teachers. This allows the teacher to concentrate solely on instructing the students. Huckleberry manages lesson times, dates locations and acts as a liaison between the students and the teachers.
Teachers registered with Huckleberry are advertised on a Huckleberry website. Huckleberry posts a profile of the teacher on the website. This allows prospective students to choose a teacher to meet for a free trial lesson.
A prospective student may request a 20-minute free trial lesson with a particular teacher. Usually the trial lesson takes place at the Huckleberry office. The teacher, prospective student and a representative from Huckleberry are present at the trial lesson.
After the student pays an entrance fee, Huckleberry gives the student and the teacher their each informations. When regular lessons begin the teacher receives 2500yen per a 60-minute lesson from the student.The student only pays the teacher directly following each lesson.Huckleberry does not receive a percentage of the teacher’s fees, but gain all company revenue from the student introductory fee & the monthly fee. The regular lesson may be held at a café in down-town Sapporo or at Huckleberry office. Teacher or the student will need to reserve the office space for their lesson in advance. At café, teacher and student should pay for drinking expenses by themselves at cafe. (If the teacher is asked to come to the other area, outside of “T/E Free Area,” the teacher should receive the public transportation fee on the lesson fee. “T/E Free Area” is a square area; “North 9, South 5, East 5, West 11.” )
If a teacher needs a textbook for a student, the teacher may request the student to purchase it.
If a student ever has any concerns or complaints about a lesson, the student informs a Huckleberry staff member and the staff member meets with the teacher to improve the lesson or resolve any problems.
The teacher is requested to submit a simple Monthly Report on each student by the 5th of following month.
If the student cancelled your lesson on the day of the lesson, at the next lesson the student will need to pay you 1,000yen on top of the lesson fee as a cancellation fee. But, if the teacher cancelled the lesson on the day of the lesson, the teacher will need to discount 1,000yen at the next lesson. (As long as the canceling information is delivered on the day before the lesson day, no cancellation fee involved.)
