Your bio is one of the most important areas of your profile, as it allows you to tell students why you are a great tutor and ultimately the best one to help them achieve their goals. It should, therefore, be written in a professional but friendly manner.
We find that the best bios read more like a personal statement rather than a CV or list of your accomplishments. Your bio should inform your students of your experience and teaching style as well as engage them!
It needs to be at least 750 characters, and should also be written in paragraphs rather than bullet points, as well as in the first person. You don’t need to write a short bio, as we’ll automatically take the first part of your long bio and use it for this!
We understand that there is no such thing as a perfect bio as everyone expresses themselves differently, but if you are struggling to complete it, here are a few questions you may want to answer:
- Why would you make a great tutor?
- How would you plan to help your students and what would you do during sessions?
- What qualifications make you suitable?
- What is your knowledge of the curriculum and exam expectations?
If you’re still unsure, it can be really useful to search for other tutors who are teaching similar subjects to you in your local area, as this can help show what is currently attracting students in your area.
