Certain Teacher Obligations
Marketplace Basics: As a Teacher, you must provide REACH with any information requested in order for REACH to hire you and for you to be booked for classes. REACH has sole discretion as to which Teachers are accepted into the marketplace and we reserve the right to reject any potential Teacher and remove or suspend any Teacher from the marketplace for any reason. REACH may, but is not required to, conduct background checks on and interviews of Teachers in its discretion and solely for its own benefit. As a Teacher, you agree to provide written and/or electronic consent to such background checks and to participate truthfully in such interviews.
Community Standards: When you join the REACH community, you agree to follow our policies, including our Community Standards. Those expectations include thoughtful and professional communications with our community (colleagues, parents, children), modeling appropriate behavior for our learners, and acting professionally. In addition, you agree to use social media, blogs, and other online forums, in an appropriate manner. Inappropriate behavior in any REACH-affiliated online forum includes, but is not limited to: behavior intended to provoke, bully, demean, or cause harm to others, or to create conflict; or any other posts or content that REACH, in its discretion, believes to be unconducive to a respectful and welcoming community for all. Inappropriate behavior in any online forum includes, but is not limited to: posting online or speaking to the media on REACH’s behalf without prior written authorization from REACH; posts that REACH, in its discretion, finds to be offensive or inappropriate based on race, sex, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability or medical condition, veteran status, or any other legally protected characteristic; derogatory, disparaging, or disrespectful comments about learners, teachers, parents, or REACH staff, even if the target is not identified by name; sharing any private material, communication, or information regarding parents of learners, including but not limited to students’ or parents’ names, photos, conversations, emails, student academic or performance information, screenshots of student work, or any other personal identifying information; posts that may be harmful to REACH’s ongoing business operations; sharing content that contains or promotes hate speech, threats of violence, or the endangerment of children; and any other violation of REACH’s community standards.
Teacher Responsibilities: Each Teacher is solely responsible for obtaining all licenses and other permissions required to offer or provide any Classes, and REACH assumes no responsibility for a Teacher’s failure to obtain such licenses or permissions or otherwise comply with any applicable laws, rules or regulations.
You understand and agree that REACH is not an insurer for you as a Teacher. If a Parent, Student or Teacher books any of your Classes, any agreement you enter into with such Parent, Student or Teacher is between you and the Parent, Student or Teacher, and REACH is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, REACH is authorized to serve as your limited agent purely for the purpose of accepting payments from Parents on your behalf and transmitting such payments to you (minus our Fees). You acknowledge and agree that, as a Teacher, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions while using the Services. With the sole exception of students enrolled in the applicable Class, and/or their Parents, you further agree that you will not share any Class Recordings made available to you by REACH to any third parties.
To the extent that you are using the Services as a Teacher, you agree to abide by the terms of our Teacher Contract and Confidentiality Agreement.
General: Each User (Parents, Students and Teachers) agrees to pay all applicable fees for Classes (“Enrollment Fees”) as set forth on the Site. All Enrollment Fees are payable in the currency specified on the Site at the time of purchase. Taxes are calculated in each Enrollment Fee. Users hereby authorizes REACH to bill User’s payment instrument upon confirmation of a purchase, and Users further agrees to pay any charges so incurred. If a User needs to dispute any charges you can refer to our Refund Policy.
Teacher Payment: REACH will transfer the Enrollment Fees to Teacher’s Paypal account for each sale of a Class (or set of Classes, as applicable) to a Parent within a reasonable period of time, minus REACH’s service fees (“REACH Fee”), according to the schedule and policies detailed in our Teacher Contract. In order to transfer funds to Teacher’s Paypal account, Teacher shall sign up for a Paypal account. REACH has discretion to act on behalf of the Parent, and to not transfer the Enrollment Fees to Teacher, if Parent reports that the Classes were not provided or adequately completed. This may include but is not limited to circumstances where a Teacher did not arrive for a Class or a Class was of insufficient quality. REACH will independently review such cases, seeking input from the Parent and/or the Teacher, and may decide at its sole discretion to issue a refund to the Parent or reschedule the session. All determinations of REACH with respect to a refund or rescheduling a session shall be final and binding on the Parent and Teacher.
