TeamUP! Tutors Values
Our policy is to ensure prospective tutors possess the experience, subject expertise, and qualifications required to excel at their job. We consider only those candidates whose past performance reflects the following core values:
Respect. Tutors agree that students deserve and will receive their total attention. Tutors ensure shared language is mutually understandable and accept each student as an individual without judgment.
Honesty. Tutors will constantly encourage students and provide sincere feedback without false hope or empty flattery. Tutors will provide an accurate record of all tutoring sessions.
Understanding. Tutors recognize that what is obvious to them may not be obvious to a student. As experienced educators, they use thoughtful examples, constantly confirm students are grasping key concepts, and guide students toward independent learning.
Leadership. A tutor’s role is never to do the student’s work, but to give the student the capability and confidence to succeed. In addition to teaching, tutors will be open to learning from their students’ ideas and suggestions.
Proficiency. Tutors must be proficient in any subject they teach. If difficulties arise, tutors will admit to the problem and seek assistance.
Professionalism. Tutors will establish and maintain a professional relationship with their students. They will be punctual and keep appointments. Tutors will not impose personal values, religious beliefs, political opinions, or lifestyle choices on students. Student information will be kept confidential.
While the obvious responsibility of a tutor is to help instill knowledge, we embrace these values because every tutor is a role model with the opportunity to inspire a lifelong love of learning.
