What Makes Propel Different
Teach for yourself. Build a reputation and adjust your price to reflect what your time is worth
Clients come to you. There is no travel to people’s backyards or condos, this is you teaching in a pool that you can call your own
Earn 20% more with extra swimmers. Whenever a second swimmer is added to a lesson, clients pay 20% more and you earn 20% more
No SFA, Bronze Cross, or NL required. All you need is an up-to-date teaching cert (Red Cross or LSS)
Incredible facilities. You and your clients can enjoy everything these facilities have to offer, from free towel service and wifi, to relaxing in the hot tub for end-of-lesson feedback
Teach how you want. Cater to your clients needs however you see fit. Teach wet or dry, use a gopro or any other piece of equipment you want
Seriously, set your own price. The average payout for instructors is currently $41/hr after access and booking fee deductions AND you never pay out of pocket
Set Your Own Price
Access Fee: -$14
Lesson prices, access and booking fees, and instructor payouts all increase by exactly 20% when a lesson is delivered with an extra swimmer. So an instructor who normally makes $35/hr will make $42 for these lessons.
To keep prices stable for swimmers, all prices are set seasonally. To change your price for the next season, let us know at or before the time when you submit availability for that season. Lessons booked in advance for future seasons will be locked in at the pricing and payment terms they were originally booked at.
Be In Demand, Not On-Demand
48 Hour Booking and Cancellation Window
Clients can book, cancel, or reschedule lessons anytime up to 48 hours before a lesson start time. Within 48 hours clients can’t surprise you with last minute bookings or cancellations. If a client can’t make it or doesn’t show up, the lesson is forfeited and you still get paid except in the case of extenuating circumstances.
Real Instructors, Real Results
How It Works for Instructors
1. Create Your ProfileIt's free to create a profile on Propel. Introduce yourself with a short description, add a few photos, and list your areas of teaching interest or expertise.
2. Set Your Location, Price, and AvailabilityBrowse available pools in your area and decide where you would like to teach. Set your price and see the effect that access and booking fees will have on how much you make. Lastly, set your availability to let clients know when they can book with you.
3. Get Booked and Teach Your LessonsOnce you are booked, prepare for your lesson by reviewing any notes sent from your client and the access instructions for the pool. Meet your clients at the designated time and teach your lesson.
We've Got Your Back
Propel charges clients at the time of booking, so you don't need to worry about handling payments or clients who don't show up for lessons. Payment is sent out via direct deposit bi-weekly minus any fees and taxes.
$5M Liability Insurance
If your client gets hurt during a lesson, our Instructor Liability Insurance protects you from liability claims up to five million dollars, included free for every Propel instructor.
Never worry about clients trying to cancel on you last minute. With our 48 Hour Cancellation Policy, you will always know ahead of time exactly what your lesson schedule will be.
