Most people think of students as little kids going to school. Some, especially those with kids in college or at university, picture students as young adults, soaking up all the knowledge they need to make a life for themselves.
At Superprof, we maintain that a student is anyone, regardless of age, who is actively engaged in the lifelong pursuit of knowledge.
Thus, we welcome masters of any and all disciplines to our platform, not just those who specialise in academic subjects - though they are most certainly welcome, too. We invite the Scottish potter as well as the retired professor to create their tutor profile so that they can pass on their wisdom and knowledge to legions of learners.
From potters to professors emeriti... that's quite a range of subjects.
Indeed, so great is the range of subjects you can study with Superprof that we feel the need to provide you with an overview of them.
Eight years ago, our founders launched Superprof as an academic support network, intent on providing homework help to school students in France. Clearly, it was an idea whose time had come; within a year, the Superprof platform became that country's largest tutoring community.
It wasn't too long after Superprof France had 100,000 tutors on standby; soon we branched out int0 other countries.
Do you know the K.I.S.S. principle?
Keep it simple, Sweetheart: that was - and still is our modus operandi. Our core service is to provide qualified tutors to help school students at all levels excel at education basics - reading, writing and maths, and beyond. We all know that school has so much more for kids to master, don't we?
The Sciences - biology, chemistry, physics and even Earth Science - also known as geology. And then, there's history and geography; religious studies and more.
Whatever is taught in primary and secondary school, there's a Superprof to help you understand it better.
Going to school is not only about studying academic subjects; it's also about getting along well within the school system, developing learning and coping skills, and learning to work independently, out from under Teacher's watchful gaze.
There's a whole host of conditions that could make going to school and learning a nearly insurmountable challenge. Learning disabilities - dyslexia and its lesser-known cousin, dyscalculia; ADD and ADHD - Attention Deficit Disorder (with or without hyperactivity), kids on the autism spectrum and those who live with anxiety and other mental stresses...
Special educational needs (SEN) create unique conditions for some students. Superprof academic coaches are not the be-all and end-all of overcoming SEN challenges but they specialise in learning strategies to help kids succeed.
Even if you/your learners do not have a SEN certification, you/they may need help doing their homework, organising their study routine or helping prepare for their SATs, GCSEs or A-Levels.
Indeed, you would be astounded at how Superprofs can help set up their students' study and revision programmes...
As Superprof operates in 28 countries, tutoring in languages is a given. Which languages can you find a Superprof to help you learn? Some of the most popular ones, like Spanish, French, and German, for starters. But Superprof language tutors have so much more up their sleeves.
How would you like to practise speaking Arabic with your Superprof tutor? Or maybe Hindi?
Other languages you'll find a Superprof tutor for include:
- English as a Second Language (ESOL)
You can even learn other languages that are not currently on offer in schools - like Tagalog, Swahili and Korean with a Superprof. In fact, you may choose to study with a native speaker of the language in question or someone who has spent so long learning it that they speak it at near-fluency levels.
The advantage of learning with such a Superprof is that they know how difficult it can be to master that particular language. They may also be native English speakers, which means they can explain some of the more complex aspects of learning your target language in easy-to-understand terms.
Health and Fitness
After the year we've just endured, we could all use a bit more fitness in our lives, couldn't we? And who better to provide it than a Superprof fitness trainer?
Whether you're looking for a vigorous Zumba session each week or you want to get into the yoga lifestyle, Superprof has a mentor for you. You might want to learn the technical aspects of weightlifting from a powerlifter Superprof or find one who can help you build endurance for a variety of other athletic pursuits from marathon running to cycling.
Incidentally, you can find a cycling coach on Superprof, too.
If you're interested in organic food preparation, building a diet plan to complement your recently-started gym workouts or you just want to know about nutritional supplements and what a good pre-workout consists of, you can discover all of that from your Health and Fitness Superprof.
And the best part is that you can receive your instruction online or in person. Superprofs are flexible in the lesson delivery methods; you get to choose whichever way is right for you.
No need to stress overpayments and charges for such expertise, either. We've got the whole system designed to be stress-free!
Arts and Hobbies
You'll find that many Superprofs' skill sets overlap from one discipline to the next; cooking classes, diet plans and organic gardening are prime examples of activities that could be labelled both a hobby and health-education related.
Did you know that Superprof is home to all manner of gardeners who give gardening lessons online and in-person?
Conversely, if you're less interested in making things grow than turning earth into works of art, you can find pottery and ceramics instructors on Superprof. Also, sculpting tutors, painters, designers, writers and... a Superprof for just about every hobby and art form you could wish to learn about.
