How can tutors protect their personal safety when using Tutorfair?

Last Updated: Sep 12, 2015 04:12PM BST

Bookings through the site

Tutors should not disclose any contact details to clients who have not booked and paid for a lesson; and NEVER attend a lesson that has not been booked and paid for through the site.

Doing so is a very unsafe practice. Some clients could be not genuine and meeting up with a stranger without them committing to a payment, and disclosing their actual information to us, is dangerous.

 

Meeting in a public place

If you feel unsure of going to a client's house for a first lesson, then we recommend meeting in a public place, such as a cafe, or library.

 

Contacting Tutorfair

You may also email support@tutorfair.com if you have any concerns, and we will readily be there to answer any queries that you have about your booking

 

Is that really necessary? Does Tutorfair really have evidence of ‘clients’ who it might be unsafe for tutors to meet in person?

I’m afraid so. We have found that making clients pay, even a small amount (leaving a record of the credit card used to pay with) is an extremely effective deterrent against people who are not genuine clients.
