Your Username has now been successfully edited.


For a "display name". This does not need to be your real or legal name, but it should be a name that you expect your students to call you. Please do not enter an online handle or nickname, since this does not make your profile seem like a real person.

Acceptable "display names":

  • "Mr. B", "Teacher Marie", "Chen Yifei", or "Kathy" are all acceptable

Not acceptable:

  • "TOEFL Teacher" (instead of putting "TOEFL" in your name, you can add it as a "teaching specialties" tag so students who want to take the TOEFL can search for you using the exam")
  • "anime451" (please do not use an online nickname or handle.)
  • "English Tutor" (please do not use a name that cannot distinguish you from others)
