    non of them, if you wanna talk to your professor in a polite way you'd better use the verb "فرمودن" and in order to make it intimate - but still polite - use the informal form "فرمودین" instead of "فرمودید"

    The second is a polite sentence.

    Hey.
    I think you can use both.as you know that "ین" is colloquial form of the "ید" and when you use them it shows your respect.the "ید" is more formal but I don't think that level of formality would be necessary,huh?she's an affectionate teacher.
    Good luck!
