Is there any one finding it difficult to get student also on this platform despite the fact that you are good as a tutor? What can we do?

In my experience, there is not so much that we can do, I corrected a lot of people but never got a new student. However, I think that doing so may show your profile to other people, I don't know where my students find me but I guess from recommendations or maybe we just have to trust the algorithm 🥴

It’s not easy to find serious learners here, even if you teach for free, most conversations are like this… Too many games. And it's better if you have techniques for teaching children. Myself cannot get along with children, even parents book lessons with me, after once or twice they will cancel. But nowadays every child is learning English, if you don't hate children and can make them happy, parents would like to pay a lot.

Hi! I have some tips as a new teacher. *This is my copy-paste notes 😂 - If you only teach 1 popular language such as English, you have too many competitors. Currently, there are 8000+ English teacher on italki. If you speak more than 1 language and can teach it too, students might found you through 2 language filters. - Try to open your schedule based on your target countries or your target students, instead of only relying on your own timezone. So you can get students from other countries. You could raise your price based of the countries too. - Students can also filter by keyword, for example: accent coach. So maybe if you can have more detailed class descriptions or some unique/specific keywords, it could help. Find your niche. - Check some profiles of teachers who teach for longer time and/or have many lesson times. Try to distinguish, what made them look interesting. - Try to promote your profile outside italki. - If you already have 1 student, try to subtlety ask them to promote you to their friends etc. Hope you get many new students soon!
