Coverage is based on the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of your policy. Be sure to read your policy to verify your coverage.
Set appropriate expectations - Tutors may be sued by parents whose child fails an important exam. Due to this risk, it is valuable to discuss your role by setting reasonable expectations and goals with all the parties involved. Do not make promises that cannot be upheld.
Tailor your lessons to the individual - What works for one student may not work for another. Listen to the feedback your students provide and make the appropriate adjustments. By assessing your students individually and maintaining flexibility in your tutoring style, you will increase the likelihood of a positive outcome.
Be prepared - Preparation can maximize the time spent with a student. It is valuable to have a working knowledge of the topic you are discussing with your student. Create an agenda to structure each meeting.
Know your role - Tutors have been sued for completing students' assignments, assisting with take-home exams or commenting on other instructors. You are responsible for helping the student through the learning process rather than doing their work for them.
Stay safe - When conducting one-on-one tutoring sessions, try to meet your client in a public space during daytime hours. Always have your mobile phone with you and be quick to report any incidents. Perceived inappropriate or unwanted touching becomes a he-said she-said court battle, and even groundless lawsuits can have a devastating effect on your career.
