  3. If the Tutor cancels an arranged Lesson less than 48 hours before the Lesson is due to begin, for a reason other than an accident or an emergency, then the Client is entitled to ask that a subsequent Lesson, up to the same duration, be offered by the Tutor at an alternative time suitable to both parties.

  3. If the Client shall pay the Tutor, then the Client will pay the Tutor the Lesson Fee for said Lesson during said Lesson unless a mutual alternative agreement has been made between the Client and the Tutor.

  4. If the Client does not pay an amount due before the date when it was due then TutorElite reserves the right to charge a late payment fee of up to £10 for each letter that is sent to the Client with regard to the amount owed. Such letters will be sent no more often than once each calendar month. TutorElite also reserves the right to charge interest on any overdue amount at 8% above the base rate.

  5. In the case of a lesson fee dispute, the hourly lesson fee, confirmed when the tutor's details were sent to the client, will be used.

  6. TutorElite will, at their discretion, charge a reasonable travel expenses surcharge for mileage/fuel when delivering face to face tuition.

  7. If a client chooses to pay for a bundle of lessons, any discount will remain solely at the discretion of TutorElite.

  8. If a client, following the purchase of a bundle, decides to cancel the remaining sessions, for whatever reason: 

    1. a: Up to, and including the third session, all remaining sessions will be refunded in full, minus any completed sessions, which will be charged at the hourly rate.  ​​​​

    2. b: After the third session, any refund will be at the discretion of TutorElite.

    3. If, following the purchase of a bundle a client requires an additional lesson or lessons, these will be charged at the bundle price including the discount.
