If you visit or use Hometuitiona1.com’s services, you accept these conditions. The term customer/client refers to the student, parent or the person requesting for a tutor.
Home Tuition A1 provides matching services to get parents a private teacher but we do not guarantee that teacher would improve the results of the student. We believe in mutual efforts and we advice that both parties should participate in an equal way to improve the outcomes. Parents are equally responsible for the good or bad academic results of their kids and we recommend that parents should spend a little time in motivating their kid as teacher alone cannot bring the best results as he spends only a few hours a week with the kid. Home Tuition A1 will not be responsible for the poor academic results of the students.
On the first lesson or upon meeting up, you need to request the tutor to present his/her credentials and qualifications for validation. It is your responsibility to ensure that the tutor’s credentials and qualifications are satisfactory.
Our matching service is completely free for our clients. The commission payment will be 50% of the first month’s tuition fees (first 4 weeks of lessons). Payment can be made through Bank Transfer or Cheque to our designated account. For the remaining 50% of the tuition fees, you will pay to the tutor on the last lesson of the first month (usually the 4th week). Subsequently, tuition fees payment will be made directly to the tutor monthly (or based on mutually agreed date).
We do not make any amendments to the information in our tutor database and we show it as it is to our clients as we trust that our tutors will provide us with the genuine information. However, we request the tutor to present hard copies of his/her certificates and documentations to the parent/student on the first lesson. It is client’s responsibility to double-check the tutor’s qualifications and credentials on the first lesson to ensure satisfaction.
Cancellation & Replacement
Our clients are allow to request for a replacement or cancellation of tutor, upon completion of the first lesson. However, payment for any lessons conducted are still payable to the tutor and to our company respectively. For a request of replacement of tutor, we will find a new tutor and a new confirmation will be issued. All cancellations or replacements, have to be of valid and reasonable, to be fair to the tutor.
We do not conduct any trial lesson, all lessons provided by the tutor have to be paid. A minimum of one lesson has to be conducted, before the client can cancel or replace a tutor. For cancellation before the first lesson, the clients will be liable for the administrative cost incurred. Any postponement or cancellation of lessons, has to be informed at least one day in advance, unless due to unforeseen circumstances. Also, any changes (or addition) to the lessons frequency and schedule in the first month, has to be made known to us. All tuition assignments are assumed to be engaged for the long term. If you intend to engage a tutor for the short-term (less than 3 months), you have to disclose to us. This policy ensures fair commission arrangement towards the tutor and company.
The lessons will be held at the client’s residence, unless otherwise arranged. Any change of venue before the commencement of lessons has to be informed to us in advance.
All tuition rates are fixed upon confirmation among the client, tutor and our company. The tuition rates cannot be changed in the first month, unless approved by us.
