To protect your privacy, do not give out your personal account information to students or post it on your profile. When a student requests a session with you, italki will provide you and your student with the contact details so that you can add each other on your chosen communication platform.

- Microphone and/or webcam
You must have a webcam and microphone. Headphones are also recommended.
Using an external camera or microphone typically provides better audio/video quality than using your device's built-in camera or microphone.
