What do I do if my teacher missed the lesson?

On rare occasions, teachers may have personal or technical issues that prevent them from making your lesson.

To resolve the situation where your teacher missed your lesson, please do the following one or more hours after your lesson was supposed to begin:

1) Go to your Dashboard.

2) Locate the lesson your teacher missed. Your lesson may be on the first page of your Dashboard; if not, search for your lesson by clicking on the "All" dropdown and selecting the "Incomplete" filter.

3) Click on the incomplete lesson.

4) Under "Actions", click "Report Issue".

5) In the pop-up screen, check the check box next to "Teacher was absent". 

6) Optionally, include comments about the situation. These comments will be communicated to your teacher.

7) Click "Report".



1. If you report an issue with your lesson, but do not file a support request, then the Verbling Support team will be unaware of any issue that happened until a support request is filed. Our team is never notified of issue reports until a teacher or student reaches out to our team directly.

2. If you report an issue with your Verbling lesson and your teacher does not resolve it within 2 business days, please reach out to our team so we are able to resolve your issue report for you!

    Hi, My tutor showed up and opened the class. I went to the session. But the Google Hangout said she is not in my circle. I sent her messages. But there was no reply until one hour later. She said she was on the class waiting for me for 20 minutes. And she charged me for this class. Anyway I booked another class the next day. And this time she blew me off. And now I can't even send a message to her or check the conversation history. It seems like she blocked me. What am I going to do!?

    Hi Mayuree, it looks like Kendra was able to unschedule the lesson with you so you can take it again!
