On occasions, students have asked GTAs if they can hire them as private tutors. While there is no formal School policy on this, there are some fairly strong views on ethical practice. The recommendation is that the School/department/Teaching and Learning Centre do not put forward persons to act as private tutors – it is up to the student to find someone and agree terms. It would be inappropriate for a GTA to act as a private tutor to a person they teach. You may, however, wish to point the student to the free study advice available at LSE through the Teaching and Learning Centre – see Section 10 for further details.
