    Only approved tutors may post in this thread.

    The Battling 101 Staff will be putting the program on hold for a week to apply some changes that will make the program better for all. The first step is having an organized thread for all tutors to maintain their profiles. If you were already a tutor in the program, the only thing you need to do is post a new profile with the updated information field provided below.

    This is an opportunity for anyone looking to share their wealth of experience and knowledge of competitive Pokemon to become recognized contributors of Smogon. We are looking for members who able to teach new or inexperienced players. The main metagames we offer tutoring for are the standard tiers for BW OU, DPP OU, ADV OU, BW Uber, and BW UU. Individuals looking to be a tutor should be proficient in all of the metagames they apply for. Battling 101 is one of the most important parts of the site because it molds an upcoming generation of players. Being a tutor requires patience and dedication to help their apprentices learn. Tutors that have proven to fulfill their duties with regularity will earn a badge and be upgraded to community member status.

    If you are not currently a tutor and think you are qualified, please PM Bloo, Limitless, and Ojama why you think you would be a good fit. Please make sure you fill out all of the information in the tutor profile. Here is the template:

    Username:
    Timezone:
    Regular Online Hours (in EST):
    References:
    Tier(s):
    Accomplishments in the respective tier (tournament, ladder, or voting success):

    You should be prepared to arrange a meeting with one of the Battling 101 Staff members to assess your ability to teach before we allow you to become a tutor. Once you have been accepted, you may post your profile. Here is the information it should include:

    Username: Kevin Garrett
    Available: No
    Timezone: EST
    Regular Online Hours (in EST): 2PM-12AM
    Tier(s): BW OU, DPP OU, ADV OU
    Personal Profile: I enjoy sharing everything I learned playing Pokemon and see other people become the best they can be.

    The new tutor profiles should be updated to reflect your availability in the program.

    Personal Profile: Hiya. I'm 19, heading off to a local college next fall, gonna major in education and philosophy. Hobbies? uhh I played / watch American football so if you're into that, that's awesome. Sports in general are cool stuff. I'm also a pretty big Zelda fan and I love listening to all kinds of music. As far as Pokemon goes, I'm mostly comfortable teaching in-game decisions and predicting, although I'm also proficient with teambuilding (offensive teams, primarily).

    Personal Profile: Hi. I'm 18 years old and just graduated high school. I'm free basically all summer until I attend uni in the fall (bar moving), so I have a lot of time on my hands. I've played BW OU since the beginning of Gen5 and started getting into Ubers soon after, so I feel like I'm a seasoned player. Teambuilding is my favorite aspect of the game Pokemon-wise. My main hobbies include tennis (though I'm no MikeDec!) and reading.
