Tutormill.com is a site devoted to helping mentor students and emerging artists in illustration.
Each student will pick 2 teachers from the available list.
Students are responsible for completing the work in the timeframe designated for the course that the student selects and pay for.
Students cannot contact the teachers outside of the Tutormill website. Any misconduct due to abusive behavior, foul language, threats, etc will result in the student's course being terminated by the administrators. Tutormill Administrators may decide at their discretion to remove and/or permanently ban a student at their sole discretion.
Students will be given a full refund if the teachers do not comply with the terms.
Tutorrmill is not a replacement for formal education. We do not grant degrees, certificates or any industry credentials. The purpose of instruction is to serve as an enhancement tool. This way, taking courses with Tutormilll can serve to compliment formal education.
Portfolio reviews are between yourself and the teacher of your choice, selected from our list of available teachers for portfolio reviews.
You understand that you must have a valid and active SKYPE account, as well as the necessary equipment to connect to Skype and use their services.
A deposit is required to request a portfolio review. At that time, you will request a time and date with the teacher of your choice. The teacher is under no obligation to approve the time and date that you request and may require that another time and date be set to better suit their schedule. If you and the teacher can not come to an agreement on a time and date, then your deposit will be refunded.
While it is highly unlikely, there is no guarantee that you will benefit from this review of your portfolio. There is also no guarantee that you will agree with the review. Once a final payment has been made and a time and date agreed upon, there are no refunds.
Tutormill is not responsible for the communication exchange conducted via online video interviews between the student and teacher. Both parties agree not to hold Tutormill (Robert Zimmerman, Gary Taxali and Thomas Fuchs) libel for any copyright infringement, defamation, coarse language, vulgarities, and any thing else that arises from the sessions. We will do our utmost to ensure students and teachers will be of suitable moral character and will not abuse the system in any way.
Tutormill guarantees a 45 minute online video session. If there is any interruption on behalf of the teacher, he or she will be required to make up that time in a accordance with a time suitable for the student.
Students may only use the teachers' SKYPE addresses for a paid portfolio review session only. Contact after the session through SKYPE is not permitted (unless of course the teacher allows this). Students must respect the privacy of this information and are not permitted to do give teachers' confidential SKYPE information. Failure to comply with these terms will result in immediate termination without a refund and a possible permanent blacklist from Tutormill.
