TERMS & CONDITIONS
Last Updated on: February 23, 2023
Tootor.ca is operated by NewArts Toronto (also referred to as “us”, "our", or “we” herein). Newmarket Community Music and Arts Centre is NewArts Toronto's legal name and is a registered Canadian non-profit charitable organization.
These Terms set forth the terms and conditions under which you may use our website and services as offered by us. This website offers online tutoring and educational resources. By accessing or using the website of our service, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.
We provide online tutoring services in Math, English, and Science subjects in accordance with the Ontario Curriculum through the website tootor.ca. The service is intended to provide students with access to qualified tutors who can help them with their academic needs. The service is not intended to replace classroom instruction or to be a substitute for professional educational advice.
If you wish to use any product or service made available through our website, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant including, without limitation, your name, address, email, age and level of education.
In order to use our website and/or receive our services, you must be either of the following:
Individuals over age 18 (or over age 13 with consent of their parents/guardians), who have sufficient competence, experience and ability to provide online tutoring support to Ontario students (“Volunteers”); and/or
Individuals who are seeking tutoring services for themselves or their child (“Service Recipients”). There is no age requirement for Service Recipients except that you either must be over age 18 or have consent of a parent/guardian if under age 18.
You are not allowed to use this website and/or receive services if doing so is prohibited in your country or under any law or regulation applicable to you.
Volunteers who wish to provide online tutoring services to Service Recipients are solely responsible for ensuring they have any applicable authorization, capacity or insurance to provide this support. By submitting the volunteer application form you consent to us doing background checks on you which may include criminal records checks, social media checks and/or verifying identity.
In order to provide, access or use some or a portion of the services as either a Volunteer or a Service Recipient, you may be required to register with us using the Sign Up form provided on the website and provide us with your contact information.
We charge a monthly subscription fee for the use of the service. The prices we charge for using our services / for our products are listed on the website. We reserve the right to change our prices for products displayed at any time.
We understand that sometimes it may be necessary to cancel a tutoring session. Therefore, we have developed the following cancellation policy to ensure that both our students and tutors are treated fairly.
Student Cancellation Policy: If a student needs to cancel a tutoring session, we require that they notify the tutor at least 8 hours before the scheduled session time. Acceptable methods of cancellation include cancelling the session via the My Bookings page or emailing the tutor. We ask that students avoid last-minute cancellations since tutors spend a significant amount of time preparing for each session.
Tutor Cancellation Policy: If a tutor is unable to attend a tutoring session scheduled in more than 48 hours, they must notify us so that we would be able to work to find a substitute tutor. If a tutor needs to cancel a session scheduled in less than 48 hours, they must cancel the session via their Wix calendar and inform the student. We ask that tutors avoid last-minute cancellations since it can be disruptive and frustrating for students who may have already set aside time to attend the session and it can also impact the student's learning progress and delay their academic goals.
You recognize and agree that by uploading any content (including, but not limited to certain information, text, graphics, videos, or other material) through any means to the website, you confirm that you own all the relevant rights or received the appropriate license to upload/transfer/send the content.

You agree to indemnify and hold Newmarket Community Music and Arts Centre and their respective directors, managers and employees harmless from any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), made against them by any third party due to, or arising out of, or in connection with your use of the website or any of the services offered on the website.
