Payment

The process of invoicing and billing is a responsibility under the control of Private Tuition Club. An hourly rate shall be agreed in writing between the Client and Private Tuition Club. An introductory lesson shall be arranged with the tutor. The introductory session is paid by the Client in advance of the first lesson at the agreed hourly rate. Once the Client is happy with the tutor, they shall proceed to payment of a set of hours agreed by Private Tuition Club and the Client. Payments must not be made directly to the Tutor at any time. Private Tuition Club reserves the right to claim back any payments which were made without our knowledge.

Clients

Private Tuition Club is an agent on the tutor’s behalf and will introduce the tutor to the Client. In order to arrange lessons effectively, the Client must provide a telephone number and email address. We are unable to provide a Tutor without these methods of contact. There are no exceptions.

Non – solicitation  

The Client is not permitted to make private arrangements for tuition with a Tutor introduced by Private Tuition Club. Should a Client breach this obligation, they will be liable to account to Private Tuition Club for all sums paid to the Tutor without deduction and Private Tuition Club shall be entitled to obtain an injunction against a Client to prevent further breaches. This obligation shall continue notwithstanding termination of this agreement.

Private Arrangements

Under no circumstances are tutors recruited and trained by Private Tuition Club to make private arrangements for tuition directly with a Private Tuition Club client and pupils. Should any tutor breach this obligation, they will be liable to fully pay the sum received from the client. Tutors will also be faced with an injunction against them to prevent further breaches. This obligation shall continue notwithstanding termination of this Agreement.

Expenses  

All expenses (including books and travel) are to be covered by the Client. Private Tuition Club will agree with the Client before ordering resources and notify the Client of the cost before purchase. The charge for resources shall be added to the monthly invoice. Any books or supplies purchased by the Tutor which are not agreed upon by the Client will not be reimbursed by the Client or by Private Tuition Club. We request that, where possible, all receipts for travel and books are kept by the Tutor for accurate reimbursement. We also ask that these expenses are agreed in writing where possible to avoid future disputes.

Liability

Private Tuition Club does not accept liability for claims by the Client arising out of or related to the carrying out of the tutoring by a Tutor introduced by Private Tuition Club.

Tutors

All Private Tuition Club tutors are self-employed and are liable to pay their own taxes.

Cancellation policy

Both the client and the tutor must notify the other party in advance of any holiday commitments they have arranged and any changes to the tuition timetable due to ill health or other causes. An alternative date will be arranged. 24 hours cancellation notice of any session must be given by the client, under which Private Tuition Club charges them if they cancel the lesson. Tutors are entitled to 100% of the agreed sessions payment to them if the client cancels within 24 hours, outside which none is provided.

Environment

The tutor and the client are responsible for agreeing on a suitable environment for tuition to take place. Private Tuition Club accepts no liability for an unsuitable environment agreed by either or both parties

Approval

All client and tutors accepting our services are assumed to be in agreement to these Terms and Conditions.
