ReferenceError: Profile is not defined

console says ReferenceError: Profile is not defined. Do you see my mistake ?

var profile = require("./profile.js")

function home(req , res){
    //if url == "/" && GET
     if(req.url === "/"){

    res.setHeader('Content-Type', 'text/plain');
    res.write("Hola Amigos")
    res.end('Hello World\n');
       //if url =="/" && POST
       //Redirect to /:userna}
   // handle HTTP route GET /: username i.e /rodrigo
    function user(req , res){
        var username = req.url.replace("/", "")
        if (username.length > 0 ){
        res.statusCode = 200;
        res.write("Hola Amigos")
        //ge json from Treehouse
        var studentProfile = new Profile(username);
        //on end
        studentProfile.on("end" , function(profileJSON){
            //Show profile
            var values = {
                avartarUrl : profileJSON.gravatar_url,
                username: profileJSON.profile_name,
                badges: profileJSON.badges.length,
                javascriptPoits : profileJSON.points.JavaScript ,
            //simple response
            res.write(values.username + values.badges + " puntos \n");

        studentProfile.on("error" , function(error){
            //show erros
module.exports.home = home;
module.exports.user = user;

Are you exporting profile.js correctly? Are you sure the file path is correct? What line is the error coming from?

There really isn't enough information here

Maybe line one also should be 'Profile' since you're using it as a constructor when assigning it to studentProfile.

well, I think that I already have the solution, it is "var profile" on the line 1 should be "var Profile" but thanks. It was a so hard to find
