PAYMENT
After the completion of the first free introductory meeting/consultation, payment is expected at the beginning of each session. Payment may be accepted in the form of cash or check. Any late payments will be charged an additional $25.00 late fee if later than 30 days.

SCHEDULE OF LESSONS
Tutoring charged at the given rate shall begin on the contracted day and time agreed upon during the consultation session and will continue thereafter on a weekly tutoring schedule until the time the tutoring agreement comes to an end.

CANCELLATION AND REFUND
The Student may cancel a session the day before the scheduled time and not be required to pay for the session. Sessions not attended for any reason by the student without giving 24 hours prior notice to the Tutor shall be charged at the full rate. If the Tutor cancels a session for any reason and at any time prior to the start of the session, the Tutor agrees to not charge the student for that session.

LATE ARRIVAL AND CHANGE OF SCHEDULE
Fees are calculated according to the scheduled time agreed upon by the Tutor and Student. No adjustment to fees shall be made for time lost because of late arrival by the Student or by early termination of the session by the Student. Any lost time because of the late arrival of the Tutor shall be compensated for by extending a lesson by mutual agreement and by such amount of time that was lost. The Tutor agrees to wait fifteen minutes from the time of the scheduled session for the Student's arrival before leaving and considering that session canceled without sufficient prior notice and therefore subject to the terms set forth in the CANCELLATION AND REFUND policy. A session may be rescheduled for a mutually agreeable different time the same day with no penalty when either party notifies the other within one half hour of the scheduled session. If no agreeable time can be found that day, the session will be considered canceled without sufficient prior notice and be subject to the terms set forth in the CANCELLATION AND REFUND policy.

OBLIGATIONS OF THE TUTOR

  • The Tutor undertakes to do all preparation prior to lessons and to structure lessons in such a way as to optimize time to the benefit of the Student.
    The Tutor shall keep confidential all information of the Student and shall contact other parties involved in the education of the Student only if given permission by the Student to do so.
    The Tutor shall not assign any of his/her duties or obligations under this tutoring contract to a third party without the permission of the Student.
    The Tutor shall at no time be required or obliged to execute homework or assignments on behalf of the Student.

OBLIGATIONS OF THE STUDENT

  • The Student undertakes to assist the Tutor in identifying problem areas in which the Student needs specific tutoring.
    The Student agrees to provide their own materials needed for each tutoring session (E. g. paper, pencil, etc.).
    The Student agrees to try giving an assignment sufficient effort without the assistance of the Tutor when suggested by the Tutor.
    If the Student is under age 18, the parent (or an adult approved by the parent) must be on the premises during sessions unless the sessions are conducted in a public place. If no adult is present, then the session will be considered canceled (or delayed until an adult arrives) and subject to the corresponding policies as stated in this contract.

NO WARRANTIES
The Tutor makes no promises or warranties with regards to a Student's performance as a result of any tutoring provided.

STATUS OF THE TUTOR
It is expressly understood that the Student retains the services of the Tutor as an independent contractor and not as an employee. The Tutor shall be responsible for his/her insurance and for all statutory declarations and contributions with regard to income tax.

TERMINATION
This tutoring contract may be terminated by either party at any time by giving the other party 24 hours prior notice.

RELAXATION OF TERMS
No relaxation, indulgence, waiver or release by any party of any of the rights in terms of this agreement on one occasion shall prevent the subsequent enforcement of such rights and shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach of any of the terms.
