How can I show students I'm a teacher they can trust?

Confirm, Renew, or Request a Background Check

STEP 1 Log in to your TakeLessons account and check to see if you have a current background check on file. Go to the Profile page in your account to view your background check status.  If your background check is current, your background check status will be Approved:

STEP 2 If your background check status is Expired or you've never had a background check through TakeLessons, renew or request one now through your account for $19.95. Once you pass, you'll receive the Background Checked badge on your profile.

STEP 3 Once you've passed your background check, your new badge will appear on your profile and on your search listing.
