Q: What can I do to enhance my lesson experience and prevent technical problems?
A: Technical difficulties happen, but you don't have to miss your lesson due to failings of your internet service provider or an unexpected computer crash if you’ve taken the proper steps to prepare.
Your devices and internet connection are your responsibility, so make sure to follow these instructions carefully before every lesson:
Most technical problems are solved by turning your device off and on again. Before your lesson, turn your device fully off and back on again ten minutes before your lesson. (Restart sooner if your device takes a while to be ready to use.)
Sluggish internet speeds are often improved by restarting your router. To restart your router: Unplug the power cable, wait thirty seconds, and plug the cable back in. Most routers take 5-15 minutes before they are up and running again, so start the process twenty minutes before your lesson to play it safe.
Make sure your device is updated with the latest operating systems and software.
Ask others to not use your internet connection during your lesson time. YouTube and Netflix burn up bandwidth and will reduce your internet speed, which leads to grainy video and distorted audio.
Get the fastest internet you can. Recommended speed is at least 30Mbps (download speed) and 10Mbps (upload speed).
If your device or internet has problems frequently we recommend that you have a Premium or Executive Membership to avoid the stress of missed lessons.
