To remove available hours:

  • Select the location from the left side of the page
  • Click and drag your mouse over the hours you are no longer available.
    • Remember, you don't need to manually adjust your availability when you add lessons to your calendar (we'll automatically block your calendar off as busy/unavailable for the times you're teaching students).

Your unavailable teaching hours will appear as white on the calendar. Hours filled in with color indicate you are available to teach and schedule new students at that time and location.  

You can only view and edit your availability one location at a time, so you may notice gray areas on your calendar as well. A gray area on your calendar indicates that you are available at another location at that time.

If you just want to confirm existing availability you've already entered, click Confirm Availability.
