By registering as a tutor with Math Ninja, LLC, you (“tutor”) agree that the following terms and conditions will govern all payments made to you by students.

Conditions for guaranteeing receipt of payment for student lessons

If any of the following conditions are not met and Math Ninja, LLC becomes unable to collect your payment from the parent, student, or other type of account-holder (collectively, “student”) to whom you gave a lesson, Math Ninja,LLC cannot guarantee that your payment will be successfully collected, processed and distributed to you:

a) The information pertaining to the lesson is accurate. This includes the start and end time, duration, subject and student account name. Unless otherwise agreed to by the tutor and student, the start and end time will be considered to be the times of the actual tutoring lesson, not arrival and departure times to and from the tutoring location.

b) Prior to each lesson being given, the student has on file with Math Ninja a valid form of payment. This includes a valid credit/debit card or PayPal account, or a positive balance of prepaid tutoring credit. The tutor can view the status of the student’s payment information by contacting Math Ninja, LLC. The requirement to verify payment information must be followed for continuing students as well as new students.

c) The lesson is delivered in-person at a mutually agreed upon location or through Math Ninja’s online tutoring platform. If the lesson is delivered remotely through another medium, such as via the internet, email, telephone or Skype, or in the instance when the tutor does proofreading or other asynchronous, non-tutoring work with the student, the tutor must obtain written confirmation from the student to the tutor’s Math Ninja email address that acknowledges the nature of the work to be done and the expectations of the time and cost required to complete the work.

d) The tutor’s services are instructive and constitute learning, not cheating. More specifically, the tutor is not to complete assignments, write papers, take quizzes or otherwise do work on the student’s behalf. Further, the services that the tutor offers must not violate the academic honesty policy or other conduct policies of the student’s school, university, academic institution or workplace.

e) The tutor enters the lesson into the Math Ninja system or assesses a cancellation fee within seven (7) days of the lesson occurring. Lessons cannot be submitted more than seven (7) days after the date of the lesson.

f) The tutor does not collect or request payment directly from the student by cash, check or otherwise, for the lesson.

g) For cancellation fees assessed to a student, the cancellation penalty is both consistent with the cancellation policy publicly displayed on the tutor’s profile and is explained to the student prior to the occurrence of the cancellation.

h) The tutor is over 18 years old and is eligible to work in the United States.

Timing and delivery of payments

If all the Conditions for guaranteeing receipt of payment for student lessons are met, tutors can expect to receive their funds according to the following schedule. If there are questions about any of the conditions, payments may be delayed while Math Ninja attempts to resolve the questions.

By default, a tutor is paid by check mailed to the mailing address on file. (The mailing address is entered into the system by the tutor during the signup process and can be amended at any time thereafter by the tutor.) Checks are mailed via USPS on the 1st and 15th of each month or the following business day in case of weekends and bank holidays. In order for a lesson payment to be included in a particular pay period, that lesson must be entered 5 days prior to the payment date.
