## Your Maths Tutor’s Terms of Service

Please read the following terms of service, fill in and sign the **Client’s Information (an online printable version + terms of service)** or ask me to email you a **PDF file **to show you have read, understood and agreed to Your Maths Tutor's Terms of Service.

PRICE:

The basic hourly rate for maths tuition is £50 per hour for a single lesson or ad-hoc tuition.

The hourly rate for long-term, regular, tuition is £40 per hour - payments to be paid in advance in 10-hour blocks - unless agreed otherwise.

If you have currently a discount applied for group tuition, home educated students or otherwise, that will be agreed on and stated in our written conversation (email, WhatsApp, etc.).

If you want regular tuition over weekends, there is a 50% extra charge. There is no extra charge for tuition on bank holidays. If a single replacement lesson is agreed to be tutored over a weekend, your normal rate will apply.

DISCOUNTS:

Currently, there are discounts available for recommendations of new students and for booking multiple lessons per week. Please ask the tutor for details directly.

CHANGES & CANCELLATIONS:

Cancellations or changes to the length of the session have to be announced at least 48 hrs before the session in written form (via text message or email).

Lessons have to be fully paid if:

- the client isn’t present at the lesson, i.e. not responding to video call for online tuition, excluding technical/internet connection problems on either student’s or tutor’s side - lesson can be rescheduled at tutor’s discretion <see below>
- cancellation/shorter session request is announced less than 48 hrs in advance AND the client will not choose an alternative session <see below>

It’s a client’s responsibility to be ready on time for the lesson. If the client is late, the start of the lesson can be delayed by no more than 5 minutes, otherwise, the lesson will finish at the normal/previously agreed time and be paid for in full. This is to ensure the students having lessons afterwards won’t be affected by the tutor being late. Exceptions for a longer waiting time may be made at the tutor’s discretion.

If the tutor is late for a session, the client can choose one of the following options:

- having the session extended beyond the usual time to get the full length of the session (if that’s possible for both sides)
- being charged proportionally less considering the time lost by tutor’s delay
- adding the lost time to the next session with no change of charge

ALTERNATIVE SESSIONS*:

sessions can be tutored in one of the following alternative ways IF it suits both sides (student & tutor):

- rearranging** the session to another day/time
- distance tuition - the session is worked out remotely by tutor for the student to learn from the notes (the topic that was supposed to be a subject of the missed lesson)

*The price of any alternatively arranged lesson is the same as the price of the lesson originally booked.

**The session is not considered as rearranged if it would be requested at the usual time slot of the next regularly scheduled lesson.

REPORTS & FEEDBACK:

Besides short feedback after regular sessions please arrange a call or ask in advance as to whether the tutor can stay longer after the session to 1) discuss results and expectations of the tuition more in depth or 2) if you want to share teacher's notes and school reports. For any further communication with the tutor please feel free to use emails/texts any time.

HOMEWORK:

Providing additional homework resources is a free part of the service and can be done on a regular or irregular basis depending on the style that suits the best current student’s lesson plan. Shorter focus-based homework can be marked by the tutor if the homework is finished and returned at least two days before the next lesson. For more extensive homework, marking can be done either by the client (where answers are provided), as a part of the next lesson, or alternatively as an extra paid online/distance lesson.

ADDITIONAL MATHS SUPPORT:

Students, or parents on behalf of younger students, are encouraged to be in touch between lessons and ask additional maths questions (via email, WhatsApp,...) in order to get help with their practice. The tutor answers as soon as it is possible for shorter questions, this is free of charge. If there is a more complex maths problem that needs to be helped with between lessons, an additional lesson may be arranged or this can be left to be solved during the next lesson.

SCHOOL HOLIDAYS:

Tuition during school holidays is expected to continue as usual. The days/times may vary if requested. The best way to book a different session day/time for school holidays is to discuss availability a few weeks in advance.

END OF TUITION:

Tuition services can be terminated at any time but at least 48hrs before the next scheduled lesson.

Any outstanding payments for the rest of the prepaid lessons will be refunded.

DISCLOSURE:

Long-term regular tuition helps improve student’s knowledge and maths skills to a degree that varies for each individual. By discussing specific academic goals and following the tutor’s recommendations for the lesson plan, the student may expect the desired result.

The tutor doesn’t guarantee any specific academic results, exams grades, etc.

The tutor is not liable for any mistakes (on her side nor the student’s side), the overall outcome of the tuition nor for the academic results, grade results, entrance applications success etc.

The tutor’s work in any form is meant to be a guidance for the student who is supposed to learn from it and then do the required maths by themselves after having a sufficient amount of lessons.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Contact me for bank details - payments to be sent via bank prior to the lesson(s).

For international payments, you may want to use TransferWise (if it supports your currency) to have lower currency conversion fees.
