Top Lessons related questions

What is the difference between lessons and tutoring services?

Most private lessons are focused on learning sports, physical, and recreational activities that you can enjoy in your leisure time. Meanwhile, tutoring services are more of academic support that helps you get better grades in class. You can also use our platform to find a tutor for general subjects like Maths, Science, and English. Apart from the traditional lectures and discussions, tutors can also lend a helping hand with homework, exam preparation, written essays, and other academic requirements.

How long does a private lesson normally take?

Most sessions take at least an hour or two. You can schedule an hourly private lesson once or twice a week, every after work or school hours. Or if you are willing to spend longer hours than usual, we recommend taking classes every weekend or on your vacant days. Kindly confirm your preferences with your instructor so they can make the necessary arrangements beforehand.  

Can I also book an online lesson at home?

It depends on the exact lessons you need. Some can be taken online at home, like painting, drawing, acting, and chess lessons. However, training and practices involving physical activities like gymnastics or swimming must be conducted in person. For these face-to-face courses, you may opt to take them at home if it’s possible so that you no longer have to travel or leave your place. 

What do I need to prepare for my learning class?

Some lessons may require you to prepare your own equipment and supplies. For example, it is necessary to prepare a set of brushes for your painting lesson or a pair of fabric scissors for your sewing class. There are also a few activities where you need to dress accordingly, like wearing comfortable gym clothes for gymnastic lessons or swimwear for surfing and swimming. 

What qualifications and skills should I look for in a personal instructor?

While it’s highly beneficial to hire someone with a formal education relevant to the lesson you need, it’s also possible to come across great instructors who have earned their expertise through supplementary courses and special programs. Apart from their background, it’s essential to find someone who is passionate, patient, and if possible, experienced in teaching your skill level. Feel free to use our rating and feedback system to confirm their skills and qualifications for the job.

Can a Tasker also conduct lessons in a small group?

Yes! If it encourages you to learn and master a skill with a small group, perhaps your closest friends, most Taskers can arrange special training courses for you. For such cases, make sure to specify it right away when putting up your task. It is also best to set the most convenient schedule in advance so that it’s easier to find the most available and flexible instructors for the job.

What do private lessons include?

Versatile instructors provide educational, sporting, artistic, and recreational programs for all age groups and skill levels. Depending on the service you need, they can train you at your place or at any safe and suitable location for the specific activity you require. The teaching method and strategy are personally matched to your learning preference while following your pace, so there’s no pressure to get everything right the first time.  Here are some private lessons that you can book through our platform:


Playing sports with friends and family is always a fun activity! Sports lessons include virtually any competitive indoor and outdoor game. Those who love sports with a higher level of physical activity can get lessons in football, tennis, and basketball, which can further develop your skills. Or if you prefer individual water sports, you can also get a Tasker to teach swimming and diving or even basic to advanced surfing! By hiring a Tasker, you’ll learn about game rules, appropriate terminology, and of course a few techniques that can help you improve your skills. 

In case you’re preparing for something bigger, like sports competitions, you can also get expert coaching from a nearby Tasker! 

Fitness training

Perhaps you’re reshaping your daily lifestyle and gearing towards a healthier path? You can also use our platform to book fitness training lessons to help you get started on this exciting journey! Here, you’ll discover a range of gymnastic, aerobic, and trampoline lessons that can improve your core strength, flexibility, and coordination skills. Or if you want to feel empowered and challenged more than just burning calories, how about learning karate or kickboxing? Most classes are done in gym facilities, although some Taskers can also visit your place for private training.

Art and crafts

Arts and crafts lessons are perfect for adults and children who want a creative outlet. You can choose the topics and skills you want to learn, from drawing and watercolour painting to pottery and sewing. Regardless if you’re learning from scratch or seeking to bring your skills to the next level, we can connect you to experienced artists and teachers who can help you master the mechanics, step by step throughout your artistic journey. 

Besides arts and crafts, you can also have a skilled photographer teach you how to capture beautiful shots on your phone or even have a teacher give you piano lessons to hone your musical abilities. You can book them for a one-off session or regularly, depending on your goals and specific needs.
