Confidentiality

We strive to maintain a positive, safe, supportive environment, and we take student confidentiality seriously. Therefore, we do not normally disclose information about a tutoring session without the permission of the student. Discussions and session information will be kept confidential unless a tutor believes a student may be at risk of harming themself or another, or there is an alleged violation of TRU’s Academic Integrity Policy.
