Jered,

Thank you! Our counsel (which is a hired contractor of the university and not a full-time employee), as well as our senior administrators, are aware our tutors do advertise their services. (Recently, we did have an issue with a student both advertising tutoring services AND selling old PowerPoint slides from a former professor on a personal website, in which our counsel had to get involved. They had no concerns that our tutors sell their services to our students; they did obviously, though, have concerns with the student in question selling the old PowerPoint slides.) Additionally, we were recently audited by the Department of Education and this was not brought up as a point of concern.

Thanks again,

Patrick,

I would at least suggest that you consult your university counsel, if you have one. Our policy was adopted with the help of our counsel, who brought up important liability issues that could arise from such an arrangement.

Hi there!

It appears our "policy" is a bit different from everyone else's (though, I wouldn't call it a policy necessarily, as it isn't written anywhere). We do allow our tutors to provide private tutoring outside of our office, even to students who are receiving tutoring through our office. Because we provide individual tutoring only to students who meet certain eligibility requirements and only for a certain amount of hours a week, we allow our tutors to provide individual tutoring to any student who reaches out to them. (For example, even if we've approved a student for 2 hours a week of individual tutoring, but that student is interested in more hours that we are unable to provide for some reason -- we will encourage them to work directly with their tutor to pay for those additional hours.) Our budget isn't small, but is heavily focused on providing many opportunities for group and lab tutoring; as a result, we are unable to offer large amounts of individual tutoring. And while we!
 
  do push students to these group and lab options, some are more comfortable with one-on-one tutoring and, in those cases, we have no problem with our tutors providing further support for a fee if the student reaches out to them. We will even offer names of tutors of ours who offer private tutoring to students who are not eligible to receive that tutoring free from our office. 

Thanks!

Good Morning, Everyone!

Do any of you have a policy on your tutors tutoring (for extra income) outside of your college's tutoring program?  If so, what are the details?
