Searching for teachers is done from the search engine present in the top of each page of the website. Once the teacher(s) is (are) selected, the student can contact the teacher by clicking on the button "Reserve a private lesson," under the teacher's photo. Once the message is sent to the teacher, it is necessary that he/she accepts the current request for the details to be forwarded to the student.
We ask our teachers to be as transparent as possible when writing their ads, detailing their profiles through three distinct categories: Experience, Teaching and Curriculum Vitae.
Teachers are required to provide us their certificates and/or degrees that we verify under 24 hours. We also control their contact information (phone, email, photo) so that the the first meeting is facilitated.
On the ad of each teacher, the response rate (i.e. 100%) and response time (i.e. several hours) are displayed and updated in real time. Students can also see when has last connected to his/her Superprof account, indicating that he/she is active on the website.
Reviews of former students and recommendations from peers, published in their ads, help to form an opinion on the quality and style of the lessons given by the teachers.
Superprof has implemented a system for measuring the availability of real-time professors, and an analysis of responses to other students.
The cost of the matchmaking is $19 and it is exclusively the responsibility of the student to contact as many teachers in as many subjects as he/she wishes, over a period of 30 days. Note that the first lesson is very often provided by the teacher.
However, you can choose several teachers simultaneously, obtain their contact information and then select the one that suits you best.
If the initial request of the student has not been completed after 48 hours, Superprof offers students other profiles of teachers relative to their needs, according to the same criteria (subject, location, rate) and offers the first lesson for free.
In this manner, we would like students and parents to increase their chances of finding a teacher most fitting for their search.
The rate of each teacher is in the ad. You can also check the ad's practical information if a teacher offers a discount for the purchase of several hour lessons.
You directly pay your teacher without passing through the Superprof website. Superprof not involved in the settlement between a student and teacher.
Si la demande initiale de l’élève n’a pas abouti au bout de 48 heures, nous recherchons et proposons à l’élève d’autres profils de professeurs, toujours selon les mêmes critères (matière, géolocalisation, prix) et qui offrent la première heure de cours.
Nous souhaitons ainsi permettre aux élèves ou parents d’élèves d’augmenter leur chance de trouver un-e professeur-e adapté-e à leur recherche.
