1. Background; Other Agreements.
1.1 How it Works.
Registered Tutors(“Tutors”) are independent contractors who use the Platform to offer their services and to perform work on assignments and tutoring for registered students needing their services (“Students”). Tutors and Students can use the Platform to directly and independently coordinate with each other regarding all aspects of their assignment or/and tutorial through the Platform’s available assignment bid order (“Available assignment”), private messaging, and payment functionality.
1.2 How to become a registered Tutor.

1.4 How Students create Assignment Orders.
A Student exclusively controls the content of a proposed Assignment Order. Generally, each Assignment Order is governed by our standard Assignment Order terms and conditions (the “Assignment Order Terms”) accessible by following this link: www.assignmentme.com/legal-workorder unless a Student varies these standard terms and conditions by adding language directly to a proposed Assignment Order through the Platform interface.
1.5 How a contract is formed between a Student and a Tutor.
A Student posts an assignment on the Platform to be bid on, or directly proposes an assignment order to a tutor of choice. Through the Platform, a Tutor may bid on an assignment, or accept a direct assignment order from a Student and agree to provide services on the terms stated therein or a Tutor can make a counter offer to the Assignment Order. A Student can then agree to the counter offer with the added or changed terms. Once accepted, an engagement for completion of the services set forth in the Assignment Order (“My assignments”) has been established by Student and Tutor.
1.6 AssignmentMe’s Role.
AssignmentMe is not a party to any Assignment Order or any agreement that might separately be entered into between Student and Tutor. Neither a Tutor nor a Student can modify an Assignment Order to make AssignmentMe a party to an Assignment Order. Any terms a Student adds to an Assignment Order shall not modify, amend, or otherwise change the rights and obligations of AssignmentMe under this User Agreement. AssignmentMe is not an employer or joint employer of any Tutor. AssignmentMe is not responsible for the performance or non-performance of any Student or any Tutor. Each Tutor is solely and entirely responsible for the Tutor’s acts and for the acts of the Tutor’s employees and or collaborators. Each Student is solely and entirely responsible for the Student’s acts. AssignmentMe is not a party to any Assignment Order and is not bound by any terms of an Assignment Order, except as otherwise provided under the Assignment Order Terms and Conditions, the Tutor Terms or Student Terms, or this User Agreement.
