Respect Others' Copyrights
Information on the Internet has copyrights and licenses. Copying the works of someone else without permission or saying it is your own will not only ruin your own online reputation, but could land you with hefty fines and lawsuits.
Follow the TOS
Most sites have a "Term of Service" policy that also lists rules of netiquette. Read it and abide by it. Discussions are constantly deleted because what was posted did not meet the terms of the website.
Keep it Appropriate
Never write or say anything that you would not let your parents/kids read. It can really come back to haunt you if you write something that is not appropriate. Be aware that electronic messages are archived, and the archives are available for a very long time. It is generally not possible to retrieve messages once they have been sent.
Research your Facts and Cite Sources
There is so much information online, it can be very difficult to distinguish what is true and not true. Before posting something, forwarding emails, or going off on a tangent, make sure it is factual and cite sources if possible to boost your credibility.

A Caring and Safe Environment Fosters Integrity and Respect
Amazing Tutors Inc. and the Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation are committed to providing safe and caring environments in which all learners can achieve academic excellence, personal growth and responsible citizenship. We follow the Safe and Caring Policies and ensure that our center-environments are free of acts of:
Bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, threat and intimidation, violence in any form:
No "Flaming": Flaming is a form of verbal abuse when a person intentionally attacks or disrespects somebody for whatever reason. Maybe he or she did not agree with something they said, however, there is a nice way to share a different point of view without name calling or attacking someone. Harassing or insulting someone is not an acceptable behaviour.

It is expected that students will:
Amazing students are expected to wear clothing that is discreet and appropriate. Slogans that depict, suggest, or promote drugs, sex, violence, alcohol, racism, power groups or use or suggest profanities and the like are not permitted. The expectation is that the students of Amazing Tutors Inc use their common sense and be sensitive to the feelings of others. Students inappropriately dressed may be required to return home to change. Behaviors cited in the code of conduct are examples only and not all inclusive list. There are rising expectations for behaviour as students mature through successive grades.
Consequences of unacceptable behaviour will consider the student's age, maturity and special needs (if any - such as an intellectual, physical, sensory, emotional or behavioural disability), severity and frequency of actions and whenever possible and appropriate, focus on being restorative rather than punitive in nature. Reasonable steps will be taken to prevent retaliation against a student who has reported breach of the code of conduct and an explaination of our center's responsibility to advise other parties of serious breaches (notification).
Academic Integrity Policy
Amazing Tutors sets high standards for its students and expects that all students maintain a high standard of integrity. Student work must be original and sources referenced appropriately. Currently, SFU and secondary schools as well as many colleges around the world use a program called Turnitin. Student work submitted for English, English Literature or Social Studies courses, is routinely check by the Turnitin plagiarism identification program.
"Plagiarism is the passing off of another person's work as one's own, whether deliberate or accidental. Accidental plagiarism is usually the result of poor citation or referencing or of a poor preparation or a misunderstanding of plagiarism. Deliberate plagiarism is an attempt to claim another persons's work as one's own (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plagiarism)."
