We normally use tutors who are students and or faculty.  Liability concerns regarding volunteer tutors  prohibit me from using them.

Subject: volunteer tutors?


Good Morning,

Does anyone utilize volunteer tutors??  Perhaps retired persons in your community or additional students who just want to volunteer?


I am being asked to look into this.   Of course, it is a cost saving measure, but I have some concerns.


Any guidance or experience with this is greatly appreciated.
