Why is a background check (tutoring clearance) so important?

Proving that you have a clear criminal record is a vital step for us to ensure a safe learning environment for our learners. It is the final vetting stage of becoming a tutor with Teach Me 2.

Aside from the legal requirement of having a clear criminal record when working with minors, a clearance check gives parents peace of mind and helps build trust.

Clearance is required for both online and in-person tutoring.

Note: Once your tutoring profile has been made live, your clearance will be available to download for your personal use under the tab “background clearance certificate”.

How to obtain a background check:

Get clearance via GoodHire
