Both parties naturally need some clarity on how and when payment is made, any rearrangments, punctuality and expectations:

- The first two one hour lessons will be on a trial basis where the £35 payment is made on each day, either by cheque or in cash. These lessons allow me to assess the student and I will draw up and issue a programme for your child, to allow you to decide if you wish to continue.
- Payment will then be required for half a term in advance, typically for eight one hour lessons. Payment is due by the first lesson of each half term.
- Renewal payments are due by the first day of the following half term. I will remind you in person or in writing the week prior to the payment being due, together with dates for the following lessons. Half a term’s notice is required for discontinuation of lessons.
- The price assumes a one to one lesson. If you would like to arrange for two pupils to attend the rate will be discounted to from £35 to £25 per person.
- Cancellations: 48-hours notice is required for any lesson cancellations during term-time (i.e. the term dates for London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames’ schools). In the event of a cancellation with this notice, I will do my best to re-schedule the lesson within the same week but this is not guaranteed. If less than 48 hours notice is given, or I cannot reschedule in the same week, then the lesson will be rescheduled at a mutually convenient time. if I have to cancel a term-time lesson myself then I will either re-schedule or provide a full refund.
- Students are expected to attend punctually at the time arranged. Unfortunately I cannot extend the lesson due to lateness. Books, other materials, website subscriptions are to be purchased by the student/parent, as advised.
- We strive to provide high quality tuition. However, we cannot guarantee or be held accountable for exam results.
