  2. Use our internal messaging system for all communications until you are ready to use your personal communication channels e.g. phone and email.
  3. On your first lesson or interview confirm each other’s identities (e.g. view driver’s licence or passport).
  4. If you feel uncomfortable, depending on the situation stop the lesson immediately, or finish the lesson and discontinue further lessons with that tutor or learner.
  5. Report any bad behaviour to TutorTower, and depending on the nature of the behaviour, also report to the relevant authorities such as the police.
