Introduction

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) govern your use of this website (www.letsgo2class.com), any mobile applications, and the services provided in connection therewith (collectively, the “Site”), which are owned, operated and/or maintained by Let’sGo2Class Inc. (“LG2C”/“we”/“us”/“our”).

2.         Students and Instructors

2.1       The Site offers a marketplace for those seeking tutoring services (“Students”) to connect with those seeking to provide tutoring services (“Instructors”). All Instructors are independent contractors and are not employees of LG2C. As independent contractors hired by Students, Instructors control the methods, materials and all aspects of the lessons.

2.2       Students are solely responsible for selecting the right Instructor for their needs. In making hiring decisions, Students should review and investigate each Instructor’s self-reported credentials, education, and experience, as well as reviews from other Students. We neither confirm nor deny the accuracy and validity of information provided by Instructors.

2.3       Students under the age of 18 may create an LG2C account but will not be able to access and use the Site until a parent or guardian completes the registration process within seven (7) days of the Student creating the account. If we do not receive confirmation from your parent or guardian allowing you to use the Site, or if that permission is expressly refused, we will delete your account and your personal information. If we delete your account, you may not create another account or access or use the Site by any other means until we receive consent by a parent or guardian or until you are at least 18 years of age.

2.4       Students under the age of 18 who participate in tutoring sessions should be supervised by a responsible adult. We are not responsible or liable for any interactions between Instructors and Students.
