The website’s really easy to use, but in case you get stuck, the following guidelines should help. Your experience on MyTopTeacher.com can be broken down into the 3 steps illustrated on the homepage. However, before explaining these steps, we’ll touch on the Registration/Signing Up procedures:

Register as a Teacher/Institute

Step 1 (Teachers and Institutes)

Becoming a Member

The Registration procedure for teachers/institutes is extremely straightforward. Start by selecting the appropriate tab between standalone ‘teacher’ or an ‘institute’, and then proceed to fill in the ‘Name’, ‘Email’, ‘Area/City’, ‘Mobile Number’ and ‘Password’ fields. If you are a standalone teacher, also enter your ‘Gender’ and ‘Date of Birth’.

We’ll then check to see if you already exist in our database. If any of the teachers in the list suggested by us is you, hit “That’s Me”. You’ve already been added as a teacher by another user, and you can check more details by clicking on that teacher from the list. Once our team verifies your details, you will also be able to add your profile picture and other contact details so your audience can easily connect with you. Also, you’ll be able to edit the other details that the person who originally added you entered.

On submitting your information, our team will get in touch with you in the next 48 hours to verify your details. Your contact details will only show up on the website once your details have been verified.

Step 2 (Teachers and Institutes)

Profile Information

If you’re not on that list, you’ll need to fill in your profile information. “Skip & Proceed” - this should take a couple of minutes.

Institutes - enter your institute level profile information here.

Teachers - fill in your profile information.

The following is an explanation of the fields in the standalone teacher form. The institution form is very similar, except less information needs to be filled in.

  • You can start off by uploading a profile picture.
  • ‘Phone Number’ is a mandatory field. Your primary phone number will get transferred from Step 1, but you can add more phone numbers here. Assume the country code (+91) is already entered (Examples: Mobile: 9898123456, Landline: 2261234567).
  • Select the ‘teacher type’. There are two options here:
  • Academic - For those teachers who give tuitions/teach in academic fields like Mathematics, SATs, Commerce, Spanish, etc.
  • Non-Academic - for those teachers who teach anything that’s not directly related to academics like Yoga, Soccer, Basketball, Dance, Guitar, Personal Fitness, etc.

You can select more than one option here. For example, a Physics tuition teacher might also be giving fitness classes.

  • Tell us whether you teach at your desired location, or are willing to go to a student’s address of choice. Whether you teach all over the city, online, or use some other form of correspondence (emails, blogs, forums, letters, etc.). More than one option can be selected.
  • The Next Piece of information you’ll fill in is ‘Class/School/Institute Name’. This option only needs to be filled in if your class has a name or you teach in a school/college.
  • Next, select the ‘Subject(s)’ you teach from our list. Multiple subjects can be selected; for example, a Yoga teacher might also teach Meditation. Enter the fees associated with the subject if you know it.
  • Finally, type in a specific area/city, and our map tool will assist you. You can also enter the building/block number in the space provided.
  • Select the relevant ‘Age Group(s)’ of your students from a dropdown list. The options are self explanatory, and can help users refine their search and find suitable teachers for them.
  • If applicable, type in the ‘Board(s)’ that you have experience in
  • ‘Qualification(s)’ is an optional field. General comments about your teaching methods and such can also be mentioned by you in the space provided.

Step 3 (Institutes only)

Add teachers

During this step, institutes can add individual teacher profiles for teachers teaching at the institute. Multiple teacher profiles can be added, and all will be linked to the institute.

Step 3 (Teachers) and Step 4 (Institutes)

Add Classes

Teachers/Institutes that will be conducting short term seminars/classes can add the dates the classes will be held on and other relevant information during this step. Users interested in such classes will be search for them in a convenient manner.

Hit ‘search’ and you’ll be directed to the search results page where you can filter and sort your results based on area/city, teaching location, subjects, and various other factors.

Rate a Teacher

Once you find the teacher you’re looking for, click on the teacher to rate her. On adding a teacher as a student, you’ll automatically be directed to the teacher profile page where you can rate your teacher. The procedure is really simple; you just need to be signed in.

You’ll rate a teacher on 5 different criteria on a scale of 1 to 5 stars:

Knowledge of Subject Matter (1 indicates ‘Needs Improvement’, and 5 indicates ‘Great’)

Communication (1 indicates ‘Needs Improvement’, and 5 indicates ‘Great’)

Patience (1 indicates ‘Needs Improvement’, and 5 indicates ‘Great’)

Personal Attention (1 indicates ‘Needs Improvement’, and 5 indicates ‘Great’)

Fees (1 indicates ‘Expensive’, and 5 indicates ‘Economical’)

You can choose to be anonymous or display your name next to your rating.

The final step will be to write a comment about the teacher to complement your rating. Be sure to read our Terms of Use, Copyright Compliance Policy, and Privacy Policy before rating or commenting on any teacher. Your ratings and comments represent your opinion of a teacher, and not the website’s. Further, you must make sure that your comments and ratings are can be justified by you in your personal capacity, and that they are not defamatory towards teachers, but rather feedback that teachers can use to improve their teaching methods. To reiterate, your comments must focus on how a teacher teaches, and not her looks, personal attributes, or anything else that is uncontrollable. Our team will read through your comments and approve them before they are posted, but it is your responsibility to ensure your comments follow our guidelines.

Teacher’s Response to a Rating

We allow teachers to respond to individual ratings posted by students. As a teacher, you can visit your profile page and check all ratings posted by students. If you feel that a particular rating contains information that is not true, or you want to respond for any other reason, you can click on the ‘respond’ button below each rating and write a response.

Our team will read through the response before approving it to ensure that it relates to the original rating and that it does not contain any cuss words or offensive language. This is done to ensure that the website remains credible. An email notification will be sent to you to tell you when your response is approved.

Favourites and Compare

Our awesome new favourites feature will allow you to save up to six teacher/institute profiles you’d like to look at again, and compare those profiles in case you’d like to view a snapshot of multiple profiles on the same screen.
