Rules and Guidelines for Wyzant Resources

There are currently 65,000+ tutors located throughout the country who use Wyzant’s platform to advertise their services. This network of talented individuals has at least one thing in common – a love for teaching. Wouldn’t it be great if students could ask quick questions to these tutors, or if tutors could share insights or materials with other users? We thought so too, which is why we created the Resources section of Wyzant.

To make Resources as beneficial and helpful as possible, please read and abide by the following guidelines:

  1. Don’t be rude. This forum is intended to be a helpful. All users are expected to treat one another with respect. This respect should also extend to the Wyzant site in general, including its staff, and the moderators who help run it.
  2. Resources is moderated with a common sense perspective. We reserve the right to remove any content at any time, without giving prior notice or warning.
  3. No disruptive behavior will be tolerated. This behavior includes but is not limited to flaming, trolling, or providing posts/comments that encourage that behavior.
  4. No victimization of others or the use of discriminatory language will be tolerated. This behavior includes but is not limited to personal attacks of other users for any reason including without limitation, any sexist, racist, ableist, homophobic, or transphobic slurs.
