What Our Customers Have To Say
Chasing down a student for a late payment is the last thing you want to do when you become a teacher. You want to focus on teaching, not convincing people to pay you. I’ve learned over the last 10 years it’s better to have a simple, straightforward policy that is upheld by something other than yourself. With Fons, my policy is enforced and I never have to chase a late payment again. Emily P.
I was piecing together multiple spreadsheets and paying a bookkeeper to handle most of my business administration. Fons handles everything for me so I can give up the spreadsheet scene and save money on bookkeeping. Beth P.
Kids' schedules are busy, and when there is a conflict, Fons allows us to change lesson times without multiple phone calls or emails back-and-forth. It's totally seamless. Tom
I love that it reminds when a lesson is coming up and gives me the option to cancel or change a lesson if needed. It also automatically charges for the lesson when it has been completed so I don't have to think about bringing a check and figuring out what I owe each month. Katherine M.
