Your Strydal profile is your virtual storefront for your students and future students. So it’s important to spend some time creating an appealing profile.
But don't worry, that's what this article is all about! We'll give you some ideas of what to include to connect with your students, and share some examples of what other teachers have done.
Introduce yourself in a personable, approachable way: describe your teaching background, experience and hobbies.
Define your focus area and what you offer; describe your typical students, and whom your services are for.
Your profile photo is visible on your public profile and also on your live classes. Pick a photo where your students see your face, and remember: it’s important to get a high-quality image here.
Size: 500x500 pixels.
Your cover picture is visible on your public profile, above your profile photo, as a much larger "full-width" image.
Many teachers choose an action or landscape image, or you can use a more personal "lifestyle" image (as shown in the example above). Again, it’s important to get a high-quality picture to represent your business.

Your timezone is automatically selected depending on your device settings. However, you can manually change your timezone if you wish.
IMPORTANT: your students can select their preferred timezone. All live classes are shown in the selected timezone, so you don’t need to worry about converting for local times.
