The school's students and teachers don't any longer have to be in the same room for lessons to take place.
More flexibility for the teachers
The interesting prospect of teaching from home opens for the school’s existing teachers. At the same time, the flexibility iolma brings by eliminating the need for a daily commute means schools can begin attracting teachers from out of town.
Expand the student base
Besides proposing the school's current students an exciting and practical alternative to the typical commute, iolma provides the schools a unique opportunity to expand their student base, by enabling their teachers to reach students from across the world.
Just like face-to-face lessons
During face-to-face lessons, one can quickly shift focus to the point of highest interest, but this wouldn’t be possible using the traditional web communication tools. Starting from this, we have developed our unique multiple-cameras technology, making it possible to instantly focus on details during the remote lessons, and thus making the learning process more natural. And this is just a random example of how a solid understanding of the teaching process guided the entire development of iolma.
Unique ergonomic features designed in consultation with world-renowned teachers (such as using a foot-operated pedal to switch between cameras in real-time and with no delay*) crucially contribute to an effective and pleasant lesson experience.
* Foot-pedal operated switching available for all iolma Studio Systems
Users of iolma.com can, for a fee, watch the recorded lessons posted on the website. The fee for viewing is set by the teacher of the respective lesson and can vary from lesson to lesson. This feature allows you to generate additional income even after the lessons took place, by simply recording*, editing and uploading it on the website.
* The possibility to record a lesson is subject to the student providing their consent in this respect, as expressed during the booking process.
Optimized time allocation
Teaching from a location of your choice not only reduces your travel expenses, but it also allows scheduling lessons in the time otherwise spent travelling, or in the “down” times from your agenda.
As iolma eliminates the distance-related inconveniences, you can now work with previously out-of-reach students.
Time differences as an advantage
Being available for lessons outside the regular working hours of your country can now be an advantage. Such availabilities allow you to match the working hours of other timezones, thus establishing the grounds to attract new students form the respective timezones.
Keep in touch
Students relocating doesn't any longer mean you will lose them. Using iolma, you can keep on working with your students even if they are away.
No upfront fees, no mandatory payments and a fair business model
With no upfront fees or subscriptions, our business model is to retain between 20% and 40%* of the lesson fees to cover all the technological and operational costs. This way, you are free of any burden and we only make a profit when you make a profit.

Using iolma grants you the ability to quickly adapt to demand. For example, it takes you only a few minutes to schedule a lesson to help a student polish those crucial little details right before an audition.
Students can book lessons only after they have paid the lesson fee, so, when contacted for lessons, you can be sure of the students’ commitment.
Logistics made easy
The integrated payment system means you don't have to go through the hassle of administering every transaction.
Once listed on iolma, your profile is highly visible and students can find you easily. At the same time, features such as the recorded lessons allow you to best showcase your teaching skills.
