Platform Guidelines

When using our site, there are a few things to keep in mind that can help you find a great teacher. When you find a teacher that you think might work, don’t forget to do your homework before agreeing to anything!

Ask Around

Has anyone you know used the teacher before? Sometimes a warm referral can be a great way to make a connection!

Ask For References

Don’t be afraid to ask the teacher for references. A phone call or email to someone can help you verify information

Background Checks

There are several resources available for a very low cost to do some research in advance of deciding if a teacher is right for you or your child.

Meet In Person

Meeting over coffee or lunch can be a great way to get to know a teacher before any work is to be done
