How do I select the right teacher for me?

You're in control. Find the right teacher for you!

At TakeLessons, we know that every student has a unique idea about what makes a teacher qualified, so we give you lots of tools to find the teacher with the exact qualifications that you want. We encourage you to use our search filters and flip through descriptive teacher profiles, read through informative student reviews, and even ask your favorite teachers a few questions before booking. All of these tools are available to help you find the best teacher for your needs.


Choose your teacher based on...

Experience Level

We’ve got teachers with a wide range of experience and expertise so you can find advanced, PhD level teachers as well as great teachers for beginner level students. Every teacher's background and experience are listed on their profile for you to review and decide who has the right qualifications for you.

Student Reviews

Read about other students’ experiences under the Reviews section of teacher profiles. All teachers who have at least 1 review will have an average star rating and we encourage you to check out the full reviews students have written about their experience. You may learn even more about your potential teacher!

Badges and Awards

All TakeLessons teachers have the option to undergo an extensive background check when they sign up for our platform. Those teachers who opt in and pass their background check have a blue Background Checked badge on their profile.   In addition, we display the red Student Favorite badge on teacher profiles and in search results so you can easily identify our top teachers across the country. The Student Favorite badge is only awarded to teachers with the best profiles who keep their students happy for a long, long time.
