Think of your tutor profile as your personal marketing platform for students. Because new students often choose which tutor they want to chat with after browsing through tutor profiles, it is really important for you to make sure your profile is up to date! Do you have teaching experience, unique work experience or interesting hobbies? Be sure to write it all! Go ahead, brag a little! ;)
Make sure to upload a friendly-looking headshot! The best profile photos are a clear, high-quality headshot of you looking directly into the camera and smiling. We've found that tutors who smile in their profile photos receive more new students than those who don't. Go figure, people like friendly faces!
The best head shots should contain your full face and the top of your shoulders only (i.e. no one else in the photo, no body shots). Here are some examples of great profile photos from three real Cambly tutors.
In addition to the profile photo, you should also add a short profile video to introduce yourself and showcase your unique personality! If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. By recording a short video of yourself talking about your experience, interests, and teaching style, students get a much better idea of who you are and what to expect from a session with you.
Tutoring/Demo Videos (Optional)
You can also upload short videos of yourself teaching English (i.e. how to pronounce the "th" sound, how to memorize new vocab words, etc.). While these videos are not required, they will give students a better idea of your unique teaching style.
Please note that your tutor profile is publicly available online. Only add information you feel comfortably sharing (i.e. no personal contact information). To Further protect your privacy, you may use a pseudonym by editing your username from your account page.
