• Only Individuals can register; If you want to create a Corporate profile to advertise your Company services please contact us.
  • Starting your tutoring job in MyDaskalos is very straightforward.
  • In just 10 minutes, you can create your online profile and advertise your tutoring services.
  • You will need to take a few minutes to describe yourself by detailing your experiences in the field(s) you want to teach. Whether you have tutored in the past or not, does not matter. Beginners are always welcome!
  • We strongly recommend adding a nice photo of yourself on your profile, perhaps one of you performing a lesson, skill or passion!

  • Everyone has a passion to share or a skill to teach.
  • If you are looking for a flexible schedule, part time job, or wish to begin your own business, then tutoring is a great choice. It gives you the opportunity, during your free time, to make extra money by using your unique skillset to put them to the benefit of those who want to learn or need to hone their personal knowledge.
  • Of course, it’s the passion of sharing your wisdom that should remain the main motivation for you to become a teacher / tutor / mentor / coach, not money or experience.
  • If you are already teaching at a public or private school, it is necessary to check the policy of your school before subscribing.
  • As a “home” tutor you will be able to develop your own style of education and/or adapt your way of teaching depending on the student’s skills or way of learning.
  • It is also important to remember that teaching / tutoring / mentoring / coaching requires skills such as passion, the desire to teach, endless patience and unlimited energy, as well as adaptability, positivity and openness.
  • You do not necessarily have to teach your higher skill. For example, if you have a diploma in mathematics, you might have enough knowledge in physics to teach it (for beginners, elementary schools, middle high schools). Other example, if you are an accountant who studied piano for many years and who also has a passion since years in photography, you are fully authorized to tutor a course of accounting, piano (for beginners) and photography. You could even teach a subject that you’re higher skilled in yet not permitted to teach within schools. For example, a mathematics teacher is fully authorized to tutor a course of physics.
  • If you recognize yourself in this description and you want to try this experience, you will need to advertise your services to the fullest. MyDaskalos allows you to get great visibility.

    If I’m a student:
  • Students are the perfect profile for tutoring as you are not considered a professional so you can propose lower fees which attracts many users.
  • This is also one of the unique jobs where you can juggle between your studies and your social life.
  • If you have recently finished studying or if you are currently studying, the perfect offer would be for homework assistance for school students in the field of your studies.
    If I’m an expert in my field:
  • For experienced musicians or sports coaches for example, our platform is a great way to meet students and develop your home tutoring companies. By creating your tutor ad, you’re increasing your visibility! You can collect testimonials from past and present students and watch your lesson requests increase.
    If I am a company:

    If you are a company kindly note the following:

  • Only physical people are advertised in this website. We do not advertise the services of any private companies, such as private schools or fitness clubs.
  • If you want to create a Corporate profile to advertise your Company services please contact us.
  • The purpose of MyDaskalos is to introduce teachers, tutors, mentors or coaches to students. The only alternative of advertising the services of your company is to advertise your teachers, tutors, coaches, mentors by creating a profile for each one of them.
  • Example: If you are a fitness club who proposes the services of a fitness coach, a Pilates teacher or a kickboxing teacher, you will need to create three profiles: one for fitness coach, one for Pilates and one for kickboxing. Each teacher will have to fill his own profile.
  • You can propose to your students to take classes at your fitness clubs.
  • You can also propose different offers to your students and adapt your offers to their needs (first lesson free, one day course per week for a lower fee etc.).
  • This solution can also be very attractive to teachers. In fact, if a student is looking specifically for the teacher and not the renown of your Company, you can propose a commission to your teachers for each student they bring thanks to My Daskalos.

  • Whatever your profile is, you can advertise for Teaching / Coaching / Tutoring / Mentoring on MyDaskalos and set your own hourly rates and your own schedule and pay zero commission to MyDaskalos.

  • As a teacher / tutor / mentor / coach working for yourself, there are several legal and / or common-sense considerations to think about to protect yourself and your students.
  • It’s highly recommended to insure yourself. You may consider subscribing to a public liability insurance, business and portable equipment insurance and professional indemnity insurance.
  • You may also be aware of health and safety regulations, such as providing a safe environment for your students to learn if you plan to teach at your home.
  • It’s very important to advertise yourself honestly by not overselling your skills. Every claim you make must be real, which means that you should be able to provide documentary proof of any qualification you claim to hold.
  • It’s also very important to keep your income and taxes up to date and a legal requirement to declare your income. MyDaskalos is not responsible for any of your declarations and will not request any information on your revenue.

  • No, MyDaskalos is not involved in the payment process between tutor and student: it is for both parties to decide how they want to be paid, whether it be by cash, bank transfer or through another means.

  • At MyDaskalos we give you the opportunity to teach any topic of your choice which can be tutored, as long as it’s legal and enters in one of our categories. If your subject is not defined in one of our categories (sports/academia/hobbies/music/etc.) please contact us and we will add it as soon as possible.
  • You don’t necessarily have to be a qualified tutor to be an effective educator.
  • For example, a professional violinist is obviously qualified to give violin lessons, but teaching involves much more than certification.
  • It requires passion; the desire to teach, endless patience and unlimited energy, as well as adaptability, positivity and openness.
  • A violin teacher does not necessarily have to be a concert violinist, but he/she must have good ideas on how to become one and how to master the instrument and the music.
  • If you are giving Russian lessons, you need to have mastered the language yourself by near perfection, be fluent or bilingual and able to explain the principle rules in writing, grammar and accent reduction. You may also be required to teach your students the basics of the culture and history of the countries where the language is spoken.

  • In case you cannot find your course in the proposed given categories, please contact us directly and we will add it to our list as soon as possible.

  • Here are a few helpful tips to make your profile more appealing and attractive to potential students, thus allowing them to find you without difficulty:
  • Tell your story by highlighting your strengths, skills and experiences related to the courses you propose
  • Explain what differentiates you from other teachers and what makes your private lessons exceptional (the way you teach for example, the percentage of success of your past students etc.)
  • Explain your learning style/technique and teaching methodology.
  • Expressing your human side is very important (charity experiences for example)
  • Mention your hobbies, groups you are part of, your travels, your past work experience and successes in life.
  • Focus on the benefits from learning with you: what are you providing to your future students?
  • Avoid technical terms that may be difficult to understand.
  • Avoid phrases that do not detail what services you will provide such as “I teach mathematics at all levels, anywhere and for all abilities“.
  • Mention the exact levels at which you teach as well as the exact topics (algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, etc.)
  • Include a picture that makes you look professional. It’s important for your future students to know that you have nothing to hide and it’s even more important for them to recognize you when they meet you for their first lesson.
  • Avoid mistakes in your ad by reviewing it (with a text editor or by asking a friend to look at it before publishing it).
  • You can propose to offer your first lesson for free if you have not received any review from a student already. During the first meeting, teacher and student usually spent their time getting to know each other, to understand the aims and objectives of the lessons and agreeing on a teaching plan that works for everyone. For this reason, proposing your first lesson for free will make your potential student more confident in the seriousness of your work. Students will contact you more frequently; it is more engaging for them.
