How do I choose the right teacher?

At AskOurEinstein, 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!

What if a teacher asks me to pay him/her directly?

Let us know, because that should never happen: Teachers who work with AskOurEinstein should never ask you to pay via cash or check directly, as it goes against their contract. If your teacher asks you to do this, please decline and let us know by emailing or calling (586) 992-6583 to speak with a student counselor. We'll be happy to connect you with a new teacher through AskOurEinstein.  Teachers who ask students to pay for their lessons in person (ie not online through AskOurEinstein) are subject to be removed from our platform.
