Background Checks on Tuteria is part of our efforts to promote trust and safety within our community.
Our application process manually verifies tutors' identity offline and online including their education, work and other personal details. Background checks therefore provide an additional metric to consider when choosing a qualified local tutor.
When requested by a tutor or a client, Background Checking International will conduct a National Criminal Database search on a tutor which will return results limited to the following:
Residential Address Verification
Felony and misdemeanor convictions within the past seven (7) years
Sex crime convictions (misdemeanor or felony) within the past seven (7) years
Generally, in accordance with applicable law, felony convictions within the past seven years; and misdemeanors within the past three years relating to children, theft, fraud or violence will subject a tutor to removal from the site.
Tuteria, however, will review every background report and will take into consideration the nature and gravity of the offense, as well as give tutors an opportunity to dispute any inaccurate or incomplete information with evidence before removing an individual from the site.
Ordering a background check
A background check may be ordered in one of two ways. In both cases, the party ordering the check will be responsible for the fee of ₦9000.0. First, a tutor may choose to run a background check on him or herself. This step is optional and may increase the chances of receiving future tutoring lessons. Second, a client may order a background check on a tutor.
What happens after a passed background check?
Upon notification of a successful background check, Tuteria will post an icon on the tutor’s profile that indicates they have successfully passed the check. Clients will be able to see this icon when choosing a tutor.
What happens after a failed background check?
In compliance with the law, Tuteria will deactivate the profile of any tutor who does not pass a background check. Additionally, we will alert any client the tutor may have transacted with while being part of the Tuteria community that the tutor has not passed the background check requirements of the site.
