Students and Parents can use the findings of a criminal background check and Social Security number trace to help them choose a qualified local tutor. SpeedyTutor has partnered with Checkr, Inc. to provide SpeedyTutor with background check services. SpeedyTutor does not require tutors on its website to have a background check.
As a SpeedyTutor tutor, we require your legal name, residential address, Social Security number, and any aliases you may have. Furthermore, as a tutor, you must submit an authorization for a background check when Checkr requests it within seven (7) days of the initial request. When this is obtained, as requested by a tutor, student, or parent, Checkr will conduct a National Criminal Database check, yielding just the following results:
To the extent permitted by applicable law, the following convictions relating to children, theft, fraud, or violence will result in the deactivation of a tutor’s profile from the website: felony convictions within the last seven years; and misdemeanor convictions within the last three years, with the exception of misdemeanors relating to children, which will be considered within seven years. SpeedyTutor, on the other hand, will analyze each background report, taking into account the kind and degree of the offense, the time of the offense, and the fact that the person is attempting to be a tutor. Before removing an individual’s account from the website, SpeedyTutor will allow them to challenge any false or incomplete information.
The background check is merely a database search, it may not include all federal, state, and local information. This means that minor charges may not be discovered through a background check, and the background check will only cover publicly known convictions, not all arrests or overseas records. Not all databases are current. To preserve the privacy of tutors, the results of background checks are only given to SpeedyTutor on a pass/fail basis. Background checks are not perfect and may offer members a false sense of security. Background checks are not a perfect answer for safety, and criminals can get through even the most powerful search equipment. For additional information, please see the Terms of Service.
SpeedyTutor will delete the account of any tutor who fails to pass a background check or who fails to provide the essential information and authorisation for a background check within a certain time frame. Furthermore, we will notify any students the tutor may have contacted while a member of SpeedyTutor that the tutor has not met the site’s background check requirements. All disagreements concerning the outcome of the background check must be submitted to Checkr, Inc. at the contact information provided below, with notification to SpeedyTutor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If a background check is changed, SpeedyTutor will reinstate the tutor’s account. When the tutor’s account is reactivated, SpeedyTutor will notify any former pupils. Please keep in mind that providing false or insufficient personal information, such as a tutor’s name, alias, or Social Security number, may result in a background check that does not fulfill the website’s requirements, and therefore the tutor’s account will be cancelled.
