The Consumer Arbitration Rules specifically state:

You and My Instructor Payments agree to notify the other party of the dispute and make good faith efforts to resolve it informally before bringing the matter to arbitration. You can email the My Instructor customer care staff; we will get in touch with you at the email address you gave us. The party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email before commencing the arbitration if, after a good faith effort to negotiate, it feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved amicably. The AAA Rules provide that in order to begin arbitration, a claim must be submitted to the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (found at www.adr.org) must be given to the other party.
