8) Dealing with different ages, levels & needs

Being an online tutor is great because you get to meet people from all over the world, young and old. You'll also need to adapt to students with different levels and learning needs.

In your Settings, you can update the type of students you accept (ages, levels and learning needs). This will show on your profile.

You may still receive bookings from unsuitable students who haven't checked your profile properly. If this happens, cancel the session and please explain to them why. 

Very occasionally, suspicious bookings are made. If you notice anything remotely suspicious, please contact us. You can also read our advice on dealing with inappropriate behaviour.

The vast majority of students you come across will be adults, but occasionally you may meet someone under 18 who may be learning to support their school/college studies. In this situation, you can cover similar topics and materials to those followed in their school. As per our Terms, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
