Instructor Compensation

Thank you for teaching at BARN!  

BARN hires instructors as contract employees. Most studios now submit payment information directly to the bookkeeper who mails the instructor a check for the total amount after the class has concluded. Please make sure you and your studio contact have agreed upon the compensation for your class.

Please ask your studio contact if they are using this updated system or if you will be required to either produce or sign an invoice before payment.

Payments will be mailed to the address we have on record. If you have moved recently, please make sure we have the correct address. Please allow 7 to 10 days for processing.

If you have not completed a W9 tax form, you can access it through the link on the left. All paid instructors must fill out a W9 form before payment is processed.

If you have any questions, please email the BARN Bookkeeper or your Studio Representative.
