First impression counts, and you only get one chance to make a good first impression. Studies show that having a good profile picture increases the chances of your profile being opened by 7 times! Your photo will not only help students trust you, but it will also tell them something about your personality.
Follow our simple tips and take a profile picture that shows the best version of yourself.
You should be the only subject of the photo. This means no objects, sunglasses, hats, group shots, or photos of you with your family or pets. Use a head-to-shoulders or head-to-waist frame to be recognizable. Avoid full body shots.
Friendly and professional
Make eye contact, smile and dress appropriately.
Simple, single color background or background in a classroom/teaching setting is a good pick. Make sure the background is not distracting.
Natural light is the best option. Your face should not look dark.
The background could be slightly out of focus but not your face.
