Academic Integrity Contest


Have you ever had an amazing teacher? Someone who made learning fun and interesting, loved when you asked questions, and helped you fully understand the lesson and materials better?

Those are the same qualities you should look for in a tutor as well!

Beware of toxic tutors - a person who calls themselves a tutor but their goal is simply to help you pass or get a specific grade, rather than understand the material and develop skills.

Here are some red flags to look out for when looking for a tutor:

  • They have you send them the assignment sheet 
  • They give you the answer instead of helping you understand and apply the concepts
  • They give you a template to just fill in
  • They use past course material (which raises copyright issues)
  • They offer to do the assignment FOR you

October 20th is the International Day of Action against Contract Cheating (when someone has others do their work and then submits it as their own for a mark or grade). #myownwork
