By holding a hard line on quality, we’re giving you a peace of mind that every recommendation you get remains a quality one.

  • How do teachers stand out on yodaa?

    At Yodaa, teachers are permitted to use their profiles to quote and solicit new business. The page is yours, and so is the business you get. To improve your community standing and trust with customers, here are 3 things you need to do:


    1. Get 2 good references from past students or parents. Customers rely heavily on references when deciding whom to hire. With grades a given, use your references to convey your teaching style and what customer can expect from hiring you.
    2. Get a great looking profile photo. Candid single shots, group shots where you’re prominent, and business logos are great. Never use a passport photo.
    3. Respond to each quote with a well crafted personal message. You can create a template and tweak the details for each request, but make sure it stays tailored and personal. Hint: address new customers by name .
