Coffee shops and libraries are great places for tutoring sessions. Remember... In-Person = In-Public.
Be sure the person’s picture matches, their credentials are the same, and ask any relevant questions to ensure the person is who they claim. This is not considered rude. Tutors are encouraged to do the same.
Remember, that both student and tutor users should seek additional information about the other to increase security and safety. Tutors and Student users are encouraged to research backgrounds, ask questions, and request references.
TUTR allows all users to Accept or Reject any request at anytime before the tutoring session begins. As an independent user of TUTR, you are never obligated to accept a particular tutoring session. If something about the opportunity doesn’t appeal to you, just wait for the next one.
NEVER exchange personal information with another user.
Follow your intuition and use your best judgement when engaging with new users, especially In-person. If you ever feel you’re in an emergency situation, call 911 immediately.
Both parties should treat one another with kindness and respect. Please review Tutoring Tips for more information.
