How to update your Profile Photo:

1. Visit your tutor Dashboard, and click the downward-facing arrow next to your name in the top right corner of the screen. 

2. Click Profile

3. On the left navigation menu, choose Photos. 

Here, you can manage your current photos, as well as add a new photo. When choosing a photo for your Wyzant profile, you should consider recent pictures of yourself that are in focus and clearly show your face, so that your students will easily recognize you when it's time for your lessons. Photos that don't clearly show a tutor's face won't be accepted. All photos are reviewed by Wyzant before becoming available to set as your Profile Photo, and if you currently have only one approved photo, it will be displayed as your Profile Photo by default.

 

How to update your Profile Title

1. Visit your tutor Dashboard, and click the downward-facing arrow next to your name in the top right corner of the screen. 

2. Click Profile

3. On the left navigation menu, choose Free Response and Title. 

You'll notice examples at the top of the screen for a suitable title, followed by a text field where you can enter a new title (70 characters max). Once you're finished, just click the orange Update Title button. When your new Profile Title has been reviewed by Wyzant, it will appear on your profile.

 

How to update your Free Response

1. Visit your tutor Dashboard, and click the downward-facing arrow next to your name in the top right corner of the screen. 

2. Click Profile

3. On the left navigation menu, choose Free Response and Title.

All updates to your Free Response will be reviewed by the Wyzant team before the changes are implemented. Any updates made to your Free Response should continue to provide specific and detailed information, such as education, academic test scores, degrees, professional and academic achievements, awards, licenses, certificates, teaching or tutoring experience, and other facts that provide students with key information about your expertise. Free Response updates must be grammatically correct, written in English, and should not include lists, sentence fragments, and improper capitalization or punctuation. Please note that Wyzant does not accept lists, resumes, or cover letters in place of the Free Response. 

 

How to update your Education section

1. Visit your tutor Dashboard, and click the downward-facing arrow next to your name in the top right corner of the screen. 

2. Click Profile

After entering the information you'd like to update, just click the orange Update button. Changes made to your Education section will automatically be visible on your public profile.

1. Visit your tutor Dashboard, and click the downward-facing arrow next to your name in the top right corner of the screen. 

2. Click Profile

3. On the left navigation menu, choose Rate and Policies. 

Hourly Rate: Your default hourly rate appears on your tutor profile and in search results. All new students are subject to this rate unless they agree to a rate change. 

Rate Change Requests: If you need to send a student a Rate Change, simply click Change Student Rates from the Student Table, and a list of your students will appear, allowing you to send a Rate Change Request, which the student must agree to before the change in rate takes effect.

Cancellation Policy: Wyzant does not have a cancellation rate policy, and tutors are allowed to set their own. To do so, choose a timeframe from the drop-down menu under Cancellation Policy. This information will be visible on your public profile once you've clicked Save Changes at the bottom of the screen.

Rate Details: You can use this section of your profile to detail any important information about your rate, including group rates, subject-specific rates, or special pricing and discounts. Please note that, while you may outline specific info about travel, tutors are not permitted to charge additional fees for any travel within the radius presented on their profile. Also, please note that tutors are not permitted at any time to charge per mile, or per minutes of travel. Please see this article for more information.
