I got an email this morning about my tutoring gig being cancelled…here’s the important bit:
- Taking part in doing someone else’s academic work (which will likely be submitted as the student’s own work) or engaging in acts of plagiarism/unauthorised copying is a violation of most, if not all, schools’ Honor Codes and constitutes copyright infringement. This behavior can lead to the suspension or expulsion of students. Fiverr does not allow this type of fraudulent activities and it will not be permitted on our platform.
Let me start my rant by saying, I’m a formerly credentialed teacher as it says in my profile, so I know very well the definition of plagiarism. I also know quite clearly, which it seems Fiverr does not, how tutoring works and that it is FAR different than anything they suggested is going on.
Now as I yet to have a client base on Fiverr for tutoring it makes little difference to me that they have CANCELLED my gig for a load of nonsense. I’ll just build my tutoring business elsewhere.
My Fiverr experience leaves much to be desired.
