Terms and Conditions

By agreeing to tuition, students and parents understand and accept the following terms and conditions:

  • Lessons are pre-booked in advance with a reserved and fixed weekly tuition slot for the academic year.
  • An invoice will be issued each month and will contain a minimum of 4 lessons, the next invoice date and the payment due date. The invoice must be paid by the stated due date via bank transfer. Late payments incur a £5 surcharge per day (waived if notified in advance). Two consecutive late payments may result in the termination of tuition.
  • Once invoiced lessons are confirmed and tuition is paid, they are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. However, where possible, a minimum of 7 days advanced notice is required to transfer lessons to another date in the same/following week if there is tutor availability. If alternative times/dates are offered and not accepted, the lesson will be forfeited and cannot be deferred.
  • Last-minute cancellations (within 72 hours) and non-attendance are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  • In the event of adverse weather conditions, heavy traffic, sickness or trips, essay/exam marking and/or Skype lessons are available as alternative lessons during the original time slot if a student cannot attend.
  • A waitlist is in operation for any upcoming ad-hoc tuition slots and is offered on a first come first served basis with advance payment to reserve the place.
  • Reserved tuition follows the state school academic year. October and Christmas holidays are optional tuition lessons. February, April and May half terms are compulsory tuition lessons and will be invoiced.
  • In order to cancel tuition, a minimum of four weeks’ notice is required and will be cancelled after the last invoiced lesson.
