I am looking for a skilled programmer who can help me finish my website within 2-3 WEEKS! I am on a tight schedule and I am actually running behind because the guy I hired flaked out on me. I want everything to be COMPLETED by May 10 at the latest!
I CAN'T PAY YOU UP FRONT because I was recently conned by someone on oDesk who I hired for this project. He took my money, wasted a lot of my time, and then ran away without giving me anything! Therefore, I will only pay you after the job is completed. Don't even bother to apply if you're going to ask for an upfront payment because I'm never doing that again!
I have decided to simplify the website in many ways so that you can finish more quickly and I have already deleted a lot of features that the website was going to have originally.
I designed this website by myself. If you think you might be able to make this site, I will send you all the photoshop files I have.
My website is a members-only site for learners of Japanese. For a monthly fee, members gain access to the site and receive a set number of points which they can use to take skype lessons with our Japanese tutors.
Each student and tutor has their own profile and they can contact each other through messages and make friends. Each tutor's profile has their own schedule on it with the times they are available for lessons and students can use points to make appointments from this schedule. 1 point = one 45-minute lesson with any tutor on our site.
The schedule needs to limit students to reserving lessons at least 24 hours in advance so that the tutors have enough time to prepare.
Everyone who comes to the site can see everything on the site, but only members are able to send messages, make appointments, and write on the forum.
When students sign up to become members, they can choose from a range of subscriptions such as: 4 points for $100/month, 8 points for $195/month, 12 points for $290/month, and 16 points for $380/month
Once they become a member, they can change their subscription type and they can also buy individual points if they don't want to upgrade but they want to do extra lessons. Our points never expire as long as the student retains their membership. If the student decides to cancel their subscription, their account will be deleted along with any points that are remaining, and they will be unable to use the site anymore. Of course, they will be warned of this.
As for a payment system, I am just going to use paypal.
I would need to be able to manage everything on the site. If I wanted to create a free account for a student and give them points, I need to be able to do that. If I wanted to change the price of subscriptions or the amount of points given in subscriptions, I need to be able to change that.
Tutors will need to be able to edit their own schedules from their account as well as upload pictures and write on their profiles.
We also need a messaging system. In addition to students and tutors being able to exchange messages, we need a way that we can send messages automatically when certain events happen such as when students first sign up for the site or when they schedule an appointment with a tutor. These messages should go to their inbox on the site and to their email address that they used when they signed up for the website.
In the automatic messages, I need to be able to attach files as well. I want to give all new members a free ebook and I am planning to do that by attaching it in a message that is sent automatically when they sign up.
If you think you can make this WITHIN 2 WEEKS and you are willing to be paid AFTER you complete the project, please apply. Then, I will send you the photoshop files.
