One of our students gets the cybersecurity hero of the month award. This very sharp and vigilant student posted a Kijiji ad looking for a tutor. He received a response from a gentleman claiming he was a professor at Mount Royal University. Rather than take the man at his word, the student wisely made inquires first with his department chair and then with others. No one could vouch for his employment past or present.
Bravo to this smart young man for checking the perspective tutor’s credentials! Because he took the time to check for references and confirm that the person is who they said they were, he avoided paying a premium price for a not so premium tutor.
