CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS TO LESSONS

You will be responsible for rescheduling or cancelling any Scheduled Bookings. You can cancel or amend a Scheduled Booking on the Site, free of charge, up to 24 hours before the booking is scheduled to begin.

If you cancel or amend a Scheduled Booking less than 24 hours before the Scheduled Booking is scheduled to begin, you will have to pay a cancellation fee of 50% of the Scheduled Booking Fee. Full fees will be charged for a cancellation on the same day as the session.

If you do not attend your Scheduled Booking and have not provided us any notice of cancellation, the full Scheduled Booking fee will be charged.

You cannot amend, extend or cancel a booking during the performance of the Services.

You acknowledge and agree that if the Tutor is unable for any reason to perform the Tutoring Services, the Tutoring Services may be performed by another Tutor pursuant to this Agreement.

If the Tutor is unable to fulfil a confirmed Booking (in full or part), we will attempt to find you a replacement Tutor. If we cannot find you an alternative Tutor, we will reschedule your Scheduled Booking to a new time, which suits you. If we cannot find a suitable time for you, you may cancel the Scheduled Booking at no charge.

There is a minimum of three (3) Bookings of 60-minutes duration each for recurring Bookings. Any weekly or other recurring booking cancelled after the first booking will be retroactively charged the one-time service rate and any reduced rates charged on the basis of the recurring booking will not apply. The parties agree that such a fee is a genuine and reasonable estimate of the loss Tutornova will suffer as a consequence of your cancellation. We reserve the right to reduce the fee payable under this clause at our discretion. In addition, the first three Tutoring Services of the recurring Bookings are to be provided within 5 weeks of the initial Booking where the recurrence is weekly and within 7 weeks where the recurrence is fortnightly. If the services are not provided during this period, Tutornova reserves the right to charge its one off fee rather than a recurring booking fee.

 

STUDENT LATE ARRIVAL TO LESSONS

Each Scheduled Lesson is for an allotted time, as agreed at the time of Booking. If you are late to a Scheduled Lesson, the Tutor will endeavour to prioritise with you the content that you wish to cover in the session.

If you arrive more than 20 minutes late for your allotted time, your Scheduled Lesson will be forfeited, and you will be charged the full Fee for the Scheduled Lesson.

If you request that your Tutor ends a lesson prematurely, the unused portion of the Scheduled Lesson will be deemed to be forfeited, and you will be charged the full Fee for the Scheduled Lesson.

 

TUTOR LATE ARRIVAL TO LESSONS

If your Tutor arrives late to a Scheduled Lesson, your Tutor may extend the Scheduled Lesson or a future Scheduled Lesson, as is agreed between us.

If your Tutor arrives more than 20 minutes late, the entire Scheduled Lesson may be rescheduled for an alternate date or time, as is agreed between us.

If your Tutor does not complete a Scheduled Lesson, you must notify us as soon as possible. We will use our best endeavours to assist you and your Tutor to determine whether a subsequent Scheduled Lesson should be accordingly extended, or a new Scheduled Lesson booked.

 

UNPAID SERVICES

Invoices must be paid within 10 days of issue. Failure to do so will incur additional charges which are non negotiable.

After 10 days outstanding, a further $20 will be added to the invoice as a late payment fee.

Any amount that is outstanding beyond 10 days will incur a daily late charge calculated at $20 per day.

In the event where your overdue account is referred to a debt collection agency, law firm and or the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, you will be liable for all costs which would be incurred as if the debt is collected in full, including legal demand costs, court costs and other miscellaneous costs associated with the collection of outstanding payment.
