Below you will find a few excerpts from emails and an open letter, all of which came from instructors who are currently using the WebAccomplice Scheduler. Take a moment to see what instructors are saying!
"I'm excited about all the features and just over the moon I've found a program
to help give me back my life in swim season. When I started working, I
wanted a part time job, so I can still be a mother to my 3 boys. This
scheduler is going to give me so much more time with my family and I cannot
thank you enough for that.
I'm starting my day tomorrow with ALL my tuition already paid, information on
students updated AND a schedule printed and ready to go- that I didn't have to
cut, paste and make in Excel...what could be better than that!!"

"Thanks again for everything and all of the updates on the scheduler. It is
working out wonderfully and was the best decision I ever made for organizing

I have been teaching Infant Swimming Lessons for 15 years. In 2008 Stephanie
Catanzarite added her "scheduler" to my existing website. It literally changed
my work life. Like most instructors my gift is in teaching not scheduling,
organization & paperwork are not my strong suite. The scheduler is very well
thought out and Stephanie was able to make adjustments to accommodate my
The parent can sign their child up online, pick their desired class date &
time, receive any paperwork needed to sign prior to class and pay any fees due
for lessons. The scheduler keeps track of all clients personal information
giving me the ability to send mail-outs through postal service or e-mail. It
keeps all days information whether the student swam or if lessons cancelled,
was it "no fee charged" if I cancelled or "charged" due to child not
attending. It keeps payments, credits and end of year balances for tax
purposes. There are many more options but all I can say is Stephanie has been
a dream to work with, very reliable and precise in all she does. The scheduler
has made my work load so much easier, giving me more time in the water.

While sitting on my living room floor in 2004 surrounded by refresher and new
student enrollment forms, my head was spinning. I didn't know how I was going
to organize all of the lesson times and know how much time each student would
Just then my phone rang and it was Stephanie. I explained that I did not know
when I could see her girls for their refresher lessons as I was trying to
figure out my upcoming schedule. Stephanie asked if she could design a website
for me with an online scheduler.
Of course I said YES!
After she completed my website and scheduler, I was very apprehensive about
clicking the button that allowed parents to sign up for their lesson time and
tentative start date online. Once I did, I was so relieved. It took a little
re-training to get my swim parents to stop emailing/calling me to schedule
their lessons, but once they did they found it much more convenient.
The scheduler serves many functions. First of all, you can turn it on or off.
Either the parents sign up online or they see a screen that tells them to
contact the instructor directly. The parents understand the start date they
choose is tentative and dependent upon the student before them finishing
lessons. The instructor determines the number of weeks each lesson type is
automatically signed up for. New students for 7 weeks, refreshers for 3
weeks, (this allows for make up days) and maintenance lessons are individually
reserved. Before completing the sign up process, they must agree to my Release
of Liability and fill out a form with all of their contact information which
is then included on my printed schedule each week.
There is a feature for MI's to block off certain lesson times/dates for a
The Invoicing and PayPal option is amazing. No more multiple trips to the
bank! Each payment is automatically applied to that specific student. It
also tracks attendance including absences and cancellations. There are so
many other fantastic features about this scheduler. Too many to mention here.
Stephanie has done an amazing job meeting the needs of the many instructors
who now use the scheduler. Feel free to visit my website to see how easy it
is for swim parents to use. Find my scheduler under the "How do I sign up" tab

This was my first year teaching and I could never have coped over the summer
without 'The Scheduler' - it literally saved me when my lessons got very busy.
It is very efficient, allows parents to choose the time slot they want, and
tracks all payments etc...., which literally saves you hours of admin. a week!
Plus the print out of the weekly schedule has all the student information you
need on it! I love the scheduler and would highly recommend all ISR
instructors use it - it is immensely helpful and will help you run your
business smoothly. Plus if you ever need help with anything regarding 'The
Scheduler', Stephanie is so helpful!
