New: New tutors must add some very necessary information before submitting their first lesson. We’ll require your bank account information so we can pay you via direct deposit and let the poor trees alone.
New: Sometimes you might not have an Internet connection (it *could* happen). Other times our servers might have some issues (this could *also* happen). In any case, we’ll let you know. And we’re sorry if our servers misbehave. We can’t do anything about your Internet though.
Improved: “It’s all about the money, Arnold.” - someone used to say. But also, safety first. A student’s payment information will now *always* be visible in the entire Jobs section.
New: Remember when you sent that message…well, never mind. You can now match keywords against your conversation list and find what you’ve been looking for.
Get up, Jake, it’s late in the mornin’

Do you want a sneak peak or a sneak peek of this week’s app updates? Homonyms are so tricky. To, too or two? They’re, their or there? Meat, meet or mete? BY, BUY OR BYE? Bye.
The name for the shape of Pringles is called a Hyperbolic Paraboloid. And it turns out that once you pop, you really cannot stop.
- One million Earths can fit inside the Sun. If you try to fit one million Sour Patch Kids into your body over the course of a financial quarter, you will fail. We dared one of the devs to do it and things got kinda ugly.

Bug fixes and improvements
The word astronaut comes from the Greek word “Astron” which means star and “nautes” which means sailor. The Russian cosmonaut has a similar meaning from ‘kosmos’ meaning universe and again “nautes” sailor. The word Wyzant has a mysterious meaning, which is written into our contracts that we never reveal. Just kidding, we don’t have contracts.
You can now use the Wyzant app to chat with your students in real-time. Look for the green dot to indicate that your student is active now. You’ll also be able to see when your student is typing and when they’ve received your messages.
