Safety

We want you to have a safe and productive tutoring experience.  It’s important to remember that tutors are independent and when you hire a tutor, you are hiring an independent contractor.  TutorFuse screens potential tutors using a safety questionnaire.  Answers given by potential tutors are based on individual honesty.  TutorFuse DOES NOT run background checks on tutors.  You are responsible for researching and overseeing your tutor.  We recommend interviewing potential tutors by phone or meeting in a public place the first time, as a safety measure.  By exercising caution and using good judgement, you should be able to avoid problems.

Use Reviews

Look at the reviews on the tutor profile from previous customers.

Have An Adult/Guardian Present

An adult should always be present for tutoring sessions if the student is under the age of 18.

Keep Personal Information Private

Keep personal information private in initial communications. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.  Do not exchange personal contact information until you are completely comfortable.
