Usual hours of availability: Any time, unless I've made prior plans in which case I would let the tutor know I am not available at the arranged time in advance.
Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I have been playing various tiers on Pokemon Showdown for about 7 years, starting from when I had no clue what the difference was between EV's and IV's up till the point that I was exclusively playing competitive UU games, which would be now, making it only up to about 1500 on the ladder. I want to learn as much as I can about teambuilding, which I've struggled a lot with up till this point and get a good feel of how to better outplay my opponents. Eager to learn, observe, and eventually conquer!(Competitive Pokemon, I mean. XD)
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: Primarily Discord, I can use Skype if I have to.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I used to play a lot of Ubers late gen 5 and early gen 6 with some success. I did reach #1 a couple of times on the Ubers ladder and had a good time in the Ubers room. I did try VGC for a while but that wasn't really my thing... as I don't like doubles to begin with. As for other tiers, I did try them but not all that successfully.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): i started playing comp pokemon in late 2013, i was very young at the time and just messed around until like 2015, which was when i started taking it more seriously. well even then i was still really bad and i stopped playing in mid-2016, i don't remember why. however, i started playing again in february of this year and i'd say that i'm more invested than i've ever been before. i have a yearn to learn UU since out of all the lower tiers i'd say it's the one that i struggle with the most and acquiring information about it would really help me out on doing well at the grand slam.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
Played since Emerald and beat all of the main games and some spin-offs, but never anything competitive. I've been playing OU on PS! to get the feel of battling live people. I prefer using off-meta stuff and using interesting combos, so I'd rather go for UU than OU. Uuuh I don't really have anything else to add, but my favourite types are grass, poison, and ghost.

I much prefer discord, but I can do both if needed.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon : I've started playing Competitive Pokémon since 2016. I started watching videos on YouTube, and training alone until I became aware of what Pokémon is Competitive. From time to time I ended up getting a taste of Tier UU, I participated in tournaments in Brazilian forums, and I still participate. This has generated some achievements. I want this tutorial to help me with the Tier's greater knowledge.

Usual Hours of Availability: irregular, pretty much all over the place, but enough spare time overall to have at least a decent shot at arranging pretty much any time other than 4am and the like
Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): The last meta I was properly familiar with was way back in Gen 5 RU. I dabbled in Gen 6 UU but didn't really get into it that much. At this point I'm pretty much out of it, am struggling to keep up with the new mons, but still remember enough from the old days to e.g. be able to speak the language pretty well already.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have been playing UU for this generation and OU before.

I would like to work on my battling mechanics, teambuilding, and improve my understanding with the tier!

Usual Hours of Availability: I work a lot from my computer at home so generally pretty available any time after 6 pm my time. Weekends are especially free if the tutor lets me know ahead of time.
Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started as a randbats player last year and got kinda good, and then started playing other tiers at the suggestion of my friends. I got into UU because a) mega-alt is top 3 favorite mon and b) I like the slower pace of battles compared to some of the other tiers; the idea of making a gameplan and executing it over the longer sequences of UU is something that I've also enjoyed when playing some of the GSC tiers. Unfortunately, I'm rather bad at building teams and would like to have guidance from an experienced UU player.

Your timezone: UTC-5
Usual Hours of Availability: I'm -5 so I know this is a long shot for a +3 tutor, but I've got a pretty messed up schedule, which might help with the timezone difference. To be specific, here are the times that I'd be available on Friday and Saturday if given some advance notice (I also translated my ranges to +3 for your convenience):
thursday: evening (if you're up very early on friday)

friday:
12 am - 2 am
5-6 am
9:15 am - 12:00 pm
2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
4:30 pm - 8 pm (I might host smogon tour at this time range)
8 pm - 12 am

saturday:
12 am - 2 am
9 am - 2:30 pm
2:30 pm - 6 pm (I might host smogon tour at this time range)
9 pm - 12 am

friday:
5 am - 10 am (I have the occasional night exam in this time range)
1 pm - 2 pm
5:15 pm - 7 pm
9:30 pm - 11:30 pm

saturday:
5 am - 10 am
5 pm - 10:30 pm
I might not always be on at these times, but if I have a couple days of notice, I should be able to make it work.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started August last year as a randbats player and started playing UU earlier this year. I think I've shaped up as a decent player, breaking into high ladder (peaked at 1700) and participating in some UU forum tours. I'm doing alright in Majors (2-0 atm), which is a definite improvement over my R1 Exit in Open. But I think I have a long way to go playing-wise and teambuilding-wise, especially teambuilding.
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype? Discord, can make a Skype.
