Here is a reminder about our Safety Guide.

Be Aware Of The Risks

We want you to feel safe when taking on jobs with us. For a start, it’s important for you to be aware of the possible risks associated with private tutoring. While we make every effort to mitigate any risks, it’s still important to be aware of the possible risks: 

  • Travelling to unsafe areas

  • Damage to personal property: musical instruments etc.

  • Stalking or inappropriate messaging

  • Bogus clients with sinister intentions

  • Theft

  • Sexual harassment

  • Other serious crimes

Be Vigilant

Please ask questions before accepting a job. Make sure you know as much as possible about what is expected of you and what the details of the job are.

All tutors should inform their next of kin of their whereabouts and their expected time of return. 

When tutoring a minor, we'd suggest we ask a parent/guardian to be present during the first couple of lessons until you both feel comfortable with one another.

If clients are expecting too much from you, and are wanting you to provide learning support outside of tutoring times etc. please contact your Support Manager to let them know.

Take Action

We strongly recommend that if you feel uncomfortable about any aspect of your tutoring job that you notify your Support Manager immediately and/or take any additional steps you deem necessary, which might include contacting the authorities, such as the South African Police Service (SAPS), or a next of kin.
