A description example: I am an experienced, qualified teacher and tutor with over 15 years of experience in teaching Maths and Chemistry, across different boards including CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE and State Board. Passionate about solving mathematical problems and chemical equations, over the years I have helped thousands of students overcome their fear of Maths and Chemistry. So far, I have worked as a Teacher with Presidency School (Bangalore), DPS (Bhagalpur) and Kendriya Vidyalaya (Nagpur).
Step 10 - Tutoring Information- The more information you provide on your profile, lower are the chances of student rejecting you, when he reaches out to you.

Hence this section allows you to tell the world whether you are a full-time or a part-time tutor and how many students you teach. Students also want to know your willingness to provide a demo class and if a demo class is chargeable or not. Don’t forget to save changes once done.
Step 11 - Gallery - Students and Parents want to know more about your teaching style, your class ambience, your notes etc. Your gallery section allows you to upload intro video/ photos/ videos/ documents to answer all such queries of your audience.
