Your teacher profile introduces you to parents and learners. It should use a professional tone. It will show up on your classes, and serves as your personal teacher page. Having a great profile will give parents more confidence to sign up for your classes.
- Name: Your name on Outschool does not need to be your full name, but it should be some variant of your legal name.
