For nearly eight years, Superprof, the world leader in private tutoring, has kept three clearly defined objectives in their company mission:
- To connect motivated students with tutors and teachers in a variety of different subjects
- To promote the sharing of knowledge around the world
- To provide as many people as possible with access to our services and achieve their learning goals
Since it was first launched in France in 2013, Superprof has expanded to over 34 countries around the world including Canada and the United States, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Germany, Spain, Indonesia, Malaysia, and New Zealand to name a few! With now over 20 million tutors on the platform, Superprof has continued to fulfil its goal of promoting education and the sharing of knowledge around the world.
Superprof would certainly not have become the largest teaching community in the world if its customer satisfaction was not at the centre of Superprof's business model.
Each day, the Superprof team works hard to make improvements to the platform and to ensure that its users fully benefit from the Superprof experience.
No matter what you wish to learn, when you decide to take private lessons be it for mathematics or tuba lessons, then you'll want to find the best possible tutor to fit your needs, schedule, and budget.
It goes without saying that your private lessons should always be of an excellent standard.
When you choose to take lessons through Superprof, you are joining a platform with a vast experience in the tutoring market that fully our students' learning goals.
Our Students are Central to Our Tutoring Goals
In November 2019 the results of the 2018 PISA for the OECD (which evaluates the performance of students in each country’s education system) showed that Canada could still do better when it comes to its learning and education goals.
This finding explains the growth in private tutoring in recent years! More students are seeking the help of a private tutor to help their achieve their academic goals.
For students that are falling behind in school or who wish to enter university but who don't have a high enough grade point average, Superprof offers a solution that will help them to succeed in the Canadian national curriculum.
Early on, the founders of the Superprof platform identified the two most common ways to find a tutor:
- traditional academic organisations and large tutoring companies
- adverts in shops, the classifieds or online
The issue with tutoring companies is that students often have no say in who is assigned to tutor them. This means that there is often a risk that the tutor is not suitable for the student and the lessons are not personalised to the student's individual needs.
Alternatively, with one to one Canadian tutors who advertise locally, there is no way of really verifying their qualifications or methodology without asking.
In light of these problems, the Superprof founders aimed to create an alternative that could offer freedom to choose as well as the assurance of each tutor’s academic skills.
This personalised way of finding a tutor now allows everyone to find one-on-one tutoring services that are tailored to each students' strengths, weaknesses and personalised way of teaching.
Are you looking for a few lessons in the form of an intensive course with a certified teacher who can help with preparation for exams?
Do you need regular supplemental instruction and help with study skills throughout the academic year?
Every learner is able to find just what they need thanks to a powerful algorithm and an engaged customer service team.
Private lessons aren’t just about the academic subjects.
There is high demand for lessons in recreational disciplines, and Superprof responds to this by offering lessons in 250 varied subjects, such as:
- Guitar lessons
- Sports coaching
- Violin lessons
- Photography lessons
- Even origami lessons!
The variety of the services Superprof can provide and the freedom to browse tutors safe in the knowledge that they hold the right qualifications is the reason why more than 170,000 students have chosen to use Superprof to find a home tutor that suits their needs.
And the platform boasts an exceptional rate of customer satisfaction from over 1500 reviews left on its Facebook page, with 93.7% of users leaving a positive review!
Satisfaction for Our Personal Tutors
Without the passion and devotion of our tutors, Superprof would simply not exist.
It is important for the team to be able to facilitate work for the tutors so that they stay motivated as well as making the process as easy as possible for those who want to become a tutor themselves.
Private tutors who wish to sign up to Superprof to deliver their services pay nothing to do so.
Yes, sign-up is free for tutors!
This represents a fundamental element of how Superprof operates, allowing anyone to give private lessons with ease.
Certain tutoring companies ask for a minimum grade B at Secondary School or High School level, to apply for tutoring jobs and charge for registration.
They also take a commission from the cost of each hourly session.
Superprof works differently:
- Registration is free for tutors
- No commission is taken from lessons
- Anyone who has skills or knowledge to share can teach on Superprof
This last point is important, as it means that self-taught professionals can also deliver lessons, as well as university students to have not yet graduated, for example.
Free signup for our tutors does not affect the amount of support we offer them. This explains why Superprof is Europe’s largest teaching community!
We advise each and every educator on completing their profile and the customer service team is always available to help answers any questions tutors may have.

Verified Reviews of Each Private Tutor
Online, it can sometimes be difficult to be certain about whether what is written in reviews is true.
Certain platforms let people leave reviews even if they are not signed up to their website. This is dangerous because there is no way of knowing whether a person is a customer of the company, or leaving a review for their own popularity, for example.
At Superprof, only those who have received tuition from a tutor may leave a review on their page.
- future students can read about the methodology of their potential tutor and decide whether it suits their learning style
- tutors can work on areas for improvement if any are pointed out
This review and rating system gives tutors an incentive to be on-time for their students and deliver their best teaching, so future students will be more likely to choose them.
The Superprof team and the Superalgorithm check the identity and qualifications of each tutor to ensure a high level of security. Verified reviews act as a way of completing this verification as the team and students can see whether the tutor provides the expertise advertised.
Whether you’re looking to learn a foreign language, rekindle your love for trigonometry and algebra by brushing up on your maths skills, need a physics tutor for exam preparation or would like a reading tutor to help your child with spelling, grammar and vocabulary, Superprof lets you browse for free so that you can find the perfect home or online tutoring mentor.
By reading each tutor’s profile you can learn about their background as well as see how they perform in reviews from their students.
With Superprof, you’re sure to find a private class to suit your needs.
What Our Personal Tutors Think
We work hand in hand with our tutors to be able to deliver on our vision of high quality individualised support.
This features in the Superprof guarantees!
We truly value the opinions of our tutors, which demonstrates the trust which develops between tutor and tutee over time, but also between tutors and the Superprof team.
Marlene is a tutor who has been able to quickly find suitable students thanks to Superprof:
“This site is very easy-to-use and helpful. Thank you to the Superprof team for all of their help! Without their advice, I would not be aware of the most effective way to find pupils as classified ads do not always work. A big thank you to the whole team.”
Sarah is a self-employed online tutor who teaches French as a foreign language on Superprof:
“A very good platform to be visible and finding customers quickly. I am self-employed and give 90% of my French lessons, which come from Superprof, by videoconference. Being able to have reviews and recommendations is important for me and makes all the difference.”
Our tutors are especially enthusiastic about the success of their students. Mark is a math tutor from London:
“I am very active on Superprof. It is important to be able to quickly respond to my students and give them feedback. I insist that my students send me their personal work online so their progress can be tracked in real time and we can both see where they need to improve. The impact of Superprof is much bigger than waiting for the next maths lesson to resolve any problems.”
Samuel offers lessons in playing guitar and singing:
“My students appreciate that I always look for the best way to approach an exercise, creating variations and making it fun while keeping it effective. My students make real progress and most of all, they are happy when they come to class.”
Customer satisfaction is central to the Superprof philosophy!
