AP Max Prep is committed to building a world where people from every background feel comfortable learning and teaching. Our commitment rests on two foundational principles that apply both to AP Max Prep and Learners: Tolerance and Respect .

AP Max Prep, Learners, Tutors, and anyone interested in using our services agrees to read and act in compliance with the following policy to realize our mission is to ensure everyone can have access to learning and anyone can be a Tutor because everyone is great at something.
- Tolerance – while highly subjective, we define tolerance in a very serious way. When a patron joins AP Max Prep as a learner or Tutor, they agree to our tolerance requirements, that include, but are not limited to, prohibition of prejudice, racism, and hatred. These disgusting acts have no place on our Platform or in our community. While Tutors and Learners are required to follow all applicable laws that prohibit discrimination based on such factors ase reace, religion, national origin, and others listed below, we try to do more than just follow the minimum requirements established by law.
- Respect – At all times, the AP Max Prep community must respect each other in all forms of communication, messaging, photos, video-call sessions, and in-person Sessions. AP Max Prep understands and appreciates that cultural norms and local laws vary around the world and expects that all AP Max tutors abide local laws and engage with each other respectfully as well.
