When you become a tutor you may need a:

  • Contract for art, ballet or music lessons;
  • A coaching agreement for teaching sport or giving swimming lessons;
  • A tutoring agreement for teaching a foreign language, school subjects or for providing computer literacy courses to senior citizens.

In our sample tutor agreement further below we provided alternate options under some of the paragraph headings which you can edit in your word program to compile a variety of sample tutoring contracts.

Note: If the student is a minor, the parent or legal guardian will sign the agreement on behalf of the student and the student will not sign the agreement. Furthermore, before entering into a tutoring contract on behalf of minor children, parents should verify references of the tutor and must be allowed to chaperon the child.

Sidebar:

One very important aspect of the tutoring contract to both parties is to clearly establish the status of the tutor as that of an independent contractor, who will be responsible for his/her own tax declarations and insurance.

For guidelines and how to legally distinguish between a contractor vs employee as well as more independent contractor agreements please refer to our Independent Contractor Templates page and for employee forms, please refer to our Employment Contracts page.
