I used to be a " pro" for many years in Thumbtack. I am with Thumbtack since it started. But I lost the motivation on responding to the new Thumbtack leads, since my price is higher than other Portuguese teachers. I invested a lot of money developing my method which includes 500 video classes, homework, audios etc..... I am the founder of Portuguese Today. com . I , as a teacher also offer to my students the access to my online course. My cost per class can't be the same as the new teachers that are entering in Thumbtack , or most that are there already. Because it , I stopped betting and competing with the other professionals that charge much less than I do for my work and my time. Thumbtack is now a platform to promote the professionals that are starting in the market, and are opened to work for a lower cost than I do. I believe that those are the ones who get the job now, and Thumbtack will probably loose the most experience professionals that have a bit higher cost for their services.
