Sometimes we need substitute tutors. Even with the best planning, sometimes tutors need to miss a class, and it helps SO much if we have a short list of tutors who might be available for short-term cover.

Substitute tutors can say NO at any time! Being a substitute just means you're on a list to be called if necessary. If the time or date doesn't suit you, just tell us, and we'll call the next person.
