Frequently asked questions

    • Are willing to provide a personalized learning experience to international students
  • What subject can I teach?
    We have over 100 subjects on Preply, including languages, school and university subjects, hobbies and art.
  • How do I become an online tutor at Preply?
    1. Provide some basic information about yourself
    2. Upload your headshot photo
    3. Describe your strengths as a tutor
    4. Record a short video introduction (up to 2 mins long)
    5. Choose your availability

    You’ll see tips and examples at each step of the registration process to help you create a great tutor profile. When you complete registration, our Tutor Success team will review your profile within 5 business days. Once your profile is approved, students from around the world will see it on Preply and will be able to book lessons with you.

  • How can I get my profile approved quickly?

    Sometimes, we don’t approve tutor profiles at the first attempt because the profile photo, video or description doesn’t meet our requirements. Make sure you use a real photo of yourself, take the time to record a short video and describe your strengths as a tutor in the description. A surefire way to get approved is to follow the tips given at each step of the registration process.

    Also, be sure to avoid mentioning any contact details, lesson prices or misleading information in your profile description and video. We’ll ask you to remove this information, which will slow down the approval process.
