What is a Tutoring Contract?

Tutors and their clients often use Tutoring Contracts as a means of defining the scope of tutoring services that will be performed. With signatures from the client and the tutor, this document can help each party to set reasonable expectations and reduce the risk of conflicts. When you build your Tutoring Contract on Rocket Lawyer, you will have the option to activate Document Defense®, which enables a lawyer to help you demand payment or enforce your rights.

When to use a Tutoring Contract:

  • You are a parent who is hiring a tutor for your child(ren)
  • Your family is taking part in a learning pod and want to sign your own contract with the tutor
  • Your child(ren) is doing remote learning through their school but want to supplement with private tutoring
  • You are a private tutor for hire and need an agreement to have the parent/guardian of your student sign
