Daylight Savings + Student Feedback Award


This Sunday, March 10th, 2019, the United States will be setting their clocks forward one hour at 2:00 AM PST in observance of Daylight Savings Time

If you reside in an area that does not observe daylight savings, please carefully read through the instructions listed below.  NOTE: This procedure has changed from recent years, veteran tutors!

  • Despite the time change at Yup HQ, do not change your normal weekly schedule in your local time zone if your country doesn’t observe Daylight Savings this Sunday.
  • However, it is important to note that we will be changing from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). This means the timing of your weekly schedule will change by 1 hour when referring to your shifts:
    • For example, a 6PM – 9PM PST shift will become 7PM – 10PM PDT from the Yup HQ standpoint. (This is important for correctly referencing your shifts to Yup Ops/other tutors.)
  • IMPORTANT: If you reside in an area that observes Daylight Savings but on a different date, please respond to the email you received to let us know.

Please don’t hesitate to send questions our way via!
