CANCELLATION OF LESSONS BY CLIENT/STUDENT
The Student may postpone a session by giving at least 24 hours prior notice to the Tutor in which case, the Student has up 48 hours to reschedule and makeup the session with the Tutor based upon the availability of the Tutor. All make-up sessions must be completed within 14 calendar days from the day of cancellation. It is understood that emergencies do occur. However, in those cases, the student/family is required to give the tutor a 2-hour notice and contact the TML office. NO SHOWS by the family is an automatic forfeiture of the day’s session.
**No refunds/credit on postponed sessions.
CANCELLATION OF LESSONS BY TUTOR
The Tutor may postpone a session by giving 24 hours prior notice to the Student in which no penalty shall be incurred by the family. At the time of notification, Tutor must offer an alternative time of availability to reschedule the postponed session. Please note that there is no refund/credit for postponed hours while a student is a current client. Make-up sessions must be scheduled with the tutor.
Fees are calculated according to the times stipulated in the schedule and NO adjustment shall be made for the time lost because of the late arrival of the student.
Any lost time as a result 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 parent/guardian or an adult 21 years of age or older who can serve as the Designated Adult (DAS) Supervisor is required to be present for the duration of the session. If the parent/guardian or DAS must leave during any part of the session, the tutor is required to leave. At no point during the session should a tutor be left alone with a student who is under the age of 18.
Students who are not present at the pre-determined location when Tutor arrives or who are more than 15 minutes late are considered no-shows. If the Student is a no-show, he or she is still responsible for payment for the tutoring session. No discount or refunds shall be given in respect of lessons not attended by the Student.
Pay-per-session clients must present payment for the session which he or she was a no-show and the following session in order for tutoring to continue.
Because the nature of the tutoring sessions is to improve academic performance, it is pertinent that the Student attends regularly and on time. If there are 3 or more cancellations, no-shows, or tardies in any 2 month time frame, the client will be charged a $35 Convenience Fee for each 2 month occurrence.
If there are pets located in the designated tutoring location, please make sure that they are placed in an area so as not to disturb the tutoring sessions.
In the event of inclement weather (snow, sleet, hail, flooding, tornado, hurricane, severe thunderstorm) we will leave it up to the discretion of the Client/Student and the Tutor as to whether or not a lesson will be held. All clients have the option to use online tutoring as an option in lieu of cancellation due to inclement weather. Please communicate with your tutor on lesson days when there is inclement weather. The Tutor shall reschedule the appointment at a time agreeable to both parties, should lessons be cancelled due to inclement weather.
This tutoring agreement may be terminated/changed by either party at any time by giving the other party (14) ten days prior written notice. If TML terminates the agreement, a refund may be given based on a pro-rated balance owed (if a balance is owed). If Student changes the Learning Package, the original length of the agreement begins again.
Please be aware that we have a No Refund Policy for all services. Refund requests, including, but not limited to, those made by Students who cannot attend or use services, regardless of the student’s reason(s), and regardless of whether the Student provides us with advance notice, will not be honored. Should you choose to cancel a prepaid Learning Package after attending your first session, you will be billed for the remaining amount of the Tutoring Package price. Exceptions may be made only in cases in which a Student cannot attend due to serious illness or the death of an immediate member of the Student’s family. In these cases, official documentation may be required.
