Charges and other FAQ
Lessons are £30 per hour. Payment by bank transfer is required on or before the day of the lesson. Alternatively, some parents find it more convenient to pay either monthly or per term in advance.
During lockdown I switched from teaching in students' homes to teaching online via Skype. I am keeping the situation, regarding returning to face to face tuition, under review but currently all of my lessons are online via Skype.
Lessons are provided on a weekly basis, throughout the school term, including training days. Lessons are available on weekdays from lunchtime through till around 9pm. I don't normally teach at weekends. Tuition during school holidays may be possible by mutual agreement.
I ask all parents and students to make the arranged lesson time a priority and try to avoid cancellations whenever possible. If, however, a cancellation is unavoidable, please give as much notice as possible. I also ask that parents, rather than students, contact me to discuss cancellations.
The following fees apply to all cancellations at short notice:
- Less than 48 hours notice, half the normal lesson fee will be payable.
- Less than 24 hours notice, the full lesson fee will be payable.
If, however, the cancellation is due to illness, the cancellation fee will be waived, provided:
- The illness is serious enough to warrant time off school.
- Every effort has been made to give notification as early as possible.
