Tutoring Session Logistics


How soon will I know if I need to teach a student?

Clients need to book a session 96 hours (4 days) prior to a session. If your schedule is more flexible, you can change these settings on your individual calendar to allow parents to book you with shorter notice.

Someone booked a session with me, what do I do next?

Congratulations. The next step is for you to contact the client and determine where exactly the session is to be facilitated. We recommended making contact within 4 hours of an appointment booking confirmation. The client will also have your contact information.

I appreciate privacy and rather not give out my personal contact information.

We can provide you with a @mycredentialedteacher.com company email address.

We also recommend signing up for a free Google Voice phone number which will forward calls to your personal phone without providing the caller your personal phone number.

Where do I teach the student?

We do not allow teachers to facilitate sessions at their own residences.

We recommend the student's home because it is familiar and convenient so long as it is without distractions. Other venues include coffee shops, libraries, parent's office, and the teacher's classroom.

Is the cost or time spent during travel reimbursed?

The cost for travel is the responsibility of the teacher.

What happens if the student cancels?

You will be paid 50% of your rate if cancellation is within a 36-24 hour window. You will be paid 100% of your rate if cancellation is within a 24-0 hour window.

I’ve gone to the specified location at the specified time and the student is nowhere to be found. 

     How long must I wait?

It is important that you document the student's tardiness by calling, texting, and/or emailing after 10 then 20 minutes. The policy is that teachers will wait for a maximum of 30 minutes. Be sure to contact the parent before leaving after 30 minutes. Also, contact us about the no-show via the  contact form.

     Will I be compensated for my time?

Yes, you will be paid the full amount for the time designated for the session. If you and the client agree to extend the session to make up for lost time,  notify us so we can properly bill the client.

What do I do if I no longer want to teach a student?

If for any reason you'd prefer not to continue teaching a specific student, please  contact us so we can find a new teacher for the student.
