Terms of Engagement

1. Rate is for private tuition lessons at the student’s home, within 30 minutes of travel for the teacher. Save $5/hr off the published rate by having classes at the teacher’s place. A surcharge of $5/hr applies if Google Map shows a travel time of more than 30 minutes to reach your place. If you have a study group, please check with us for group rates.

2. Payment is at the beginning of the month for all the confirmed lessons in that month. We do not require payment for the entire term or year. We do not require registration fees or security deposits. We are the ones teaching. You do not need to pay any kind of referral fees. You will only need to reimburse the teacher for the cost of materials that your child will keep.

3. Payment will be on a pro-rata basis for the first month for students starting during a month.

4. Before the start of the month, please plan and fix the dates for all tuition lessons in that month with the teacher. As the parent, you will know the school’s time-table, and the schedule of other activities (e.g. swimming classes, music lessons, holidays). If you have a preferred time-slot, please let the teacher know as early as possible. In the event of unforeseen circumstances, such as sickness or school activities, please let the teacher know at least one day in advance. This will help in the re-scheduling of lessons. If no notice is given,  and your teacher turns up for the lesson, the lesson will be charged. The teacher needs to plan and prepare for lessons and s/he can only do so for lessons that are confirmed and paid for.

5. Additional revision tutorials can be scheduled during the holidays, and in the two weeks prior to the school exams. A post-mortem class is held once the exam papers are returned.

6. We can have small group tuition only if the students are at the same competency level and using the same materials.

7. We do not offer a stand-alone trial lesson. Unlikely an enrichment/tuition center, the teacher does not follow a fixed lesson plan where your child is just an extra head-count in class. A single trial lesson is unlikely to be representative of regular lessons. Further, we need a workable schedule for regular lessons.

8. On the first lesson, please orientate the teacher with helpful information, such as your concerns, preferences and expectations, past exam papers and results, feedback from school teachers, behavioral issues and learning disabilities. The teacher will spend some time identifying root causes of poor performance and areas of weakness to work on with the student during the first lesson. These allow the teacher to employ the appropriate range of materials and methodologies subsequently.

9. For international schools, International Baccalaureate, and Integrated Programme students, please look at the equivalent grades.

10. Payment must be documented, by bank transfer, cheque or PayNow; not cash.
