Our Story

Hi, I’m Brett Morris and I created Instructal to help teachers and instructors of all types improve their business. Instructal can help you see more students and increase your income while keeping your administrative burden in check.

Instructal was inspired by my wife’s experiences in college. She was on her way to earning a math degree and teaching credential while juggling multiple jobs. Her jobs all revolved around teaching, private tutoring or coaching youth sports. While these were great for flexibility, the odd hours and numerous students she worked with represented an administrative challenge in remembering not only who to bill and for what amount, but who was working on what subject, who needed extra help in a specific area, who was she supposed to work with tomorrow and so on. She also had no easy way to market herself online in order to reach more students as setting up a website was viewed as lower priority than her linear algebra class. With these problems in mind, Instructal was created as a single platform to give instructors of all types an easy and cost effective way to manage their business.

Instructal gives you that online presence in minutes without the need to hire an expensive web designer or figure out hosting. Instructal keeps track of your appointments so you always know who to see and at what time. Students can even book their own appointments if you have availability. Instructal allows you to bill your students at any time and receive payments by credit card. Students can also pre-pay for appointments as they are booking online. Instructal allows you and your students to share materials privately with each other. If your student needs some extra help in math or wants a new nutrition plan, privately share some new worksheets or eating guide with those students and it will stay in their student portal for them to have access to at any time. Instructing your students shouldn’t be a burden administratively. Let Instructal handle the busy work and help you focus on what you love to do.
