Improved: Minor UI tweaks here and there. We’ve also added some extra useful (maybe? we’ll let you decide) information in the Lesson Details screens. And now you can add your upcoming lessons to your calendars. In case you forget about any of them. We know you don’t. But just in case. Oh and...you’ll be able to better sort and filter the available jobs according to your needs. Aaaaand…(one more thing, we promise): you can find an FAQ section in Settings :D
Fixed: Some small issues around zip codes in Settings and student notes.

Fixed: We had a couple screens that would overstay their welcome. Now they know better when it’s time to leave (the other ones were fine; they’ll still appear when they’re meant to).
Fixed: We were allowing you to send empty messages to our Customer Service. Guess what? Now you’ll have to write something in those messages (we hope mostly good things).

Fixed: Tutors may now schedule lessons from Messaging without lesson plans.
Fixed: Tutors may update rates to values starting with ‘0’.

Fixed: The “Done” button will now always be present when updating distance.
Fixed: Jobs can now be properly sorted and filtered.

Bug fixes and improvements

Version 1.8.0

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.
