Hello Abassomooyedele,

I think the sentence is a little awkward. I would suggest either of the following:

I have a proven track record of preparing students for critical examinations, which they pass with flying colours.

Maybe, I do not have an online profile. it is difficult for me to answer because I don’t understand what an online profile mean a little bit. So, I will guess and try to write. My name is kaito seito. I am 20 years old. I was born and raised in Chiba prefecture. I graduated from high school in 2019 and currently I am commuting to university. I am currently studying English and French at university. However, I am not very good at either. So, I would be happy if you could give me some advice in English and French. Universities not only study but also have various circles. I belong to the futsal circle.  I have been playing baseball since I was elementary school student, but after I entered university, I wanted to try a different sport and started playing futsal, which is completely different from baseball. Futsal is a very difficult sport, but I like futsal very much. I want to try various thigs from now on. Thank you very much.

Maybe, I don’t have an online profile. It is difficult for me to answer and to think about online profile because I’ve never heard this word, online profile, and I don’t know it at all.Therefore, I’ll try to image if I want to see people who is studying Japanese now. Of course, I write my name, my native place, and the distinction sex. In the past, most people wrote my sex in some papers. However, recently, I think that it doesn’t become normal. There are many kinds of people in the world. Therefore, everyone doesn’t necessarily have to write your sex on the online profile or in some papers. I’ll go back to the subject of online profile. In addition to, I want to write my hobbies, culture that I like the best in Japan and in the world. In this way, I think someone is interested in me when you saw my online profile and the chance is increased to talk with me in Japanese. To thinking from my position, if I found someone who match me in the point of hobbies or something that you like, maybe I think I’ll try to talk this person. From these, I haven’t written online profile, but it is important for us to write and see your online profile.
