Time for Payment
Payment for lessons must be
paid in advance. Monthly tuition is due on the 1st of the month. If student has not paid
monthly tuition in full prior to the start of lessons, no lesson will be
given. There are no refunds once lessons for the
month have been paid in full in advance. Acceptable forms of
payment include cash, check, PayPal, and all major
credit and debit cards via PayPal.
If student is unable to attend scheduled lesson, you must contact
Teacher forty-eight (48) hours prior to the lesson. Failure to do so will disqualify you from a possible make-up lesson.
If Teacher cancels lessons due to illness, family emergency, or any
other reason, a make up lesson will be granted to the student. Make
up lesson will be scheduled on a mutually agreed upon time. If a make up lesson cannot be given, student tuition for (1) lesson will be credited the following month.
Make Up Lessons
If a student misses a lesson for any reason, the student is not entitled
to a make up lesson. Make up lessons will be given solely at the
discretion of Teacher and are not mandatory. Tuition will not be
adjusted for any reason, including missed lessons. However, the teacher will make an attempt to schedule a make-up lesson if possible. As a mobile teacher, make-up lessons are difficult to re-schedule.
If the student is tardy, the student will only be given a lesson that lasts
for the duration of their prearranged and agreed upon time and date.
For example, if the student’s lesson is from 4:00-4:30 on Monday, and
the student arrives at 4:15; the student will only be given a lesson until
4:30. No make up lesson will be given for tardy students and tuition
will not be adjusted.
If the student becomes disruptive, disrespectful, or otherwise
misbehaves, Teacher reserves the right to terminate the lesson
without refund. Teacher is the sole determiner of what

pre-arranged day of the week and time slot. On certain months the

For example, a student is scheduled for lessons on Thursday
at 4:00pm. During the month of August 2013, the student will
receive four (5) lessons. During the month of September
2013 the student will receive five (4) lessons. A parent, guardian, nanny, or any other adult must be present during the entire duration of the lesson. If they are not available, the teacher will not be able to conduct a lesson and a make-up lesson will not be given.
If Client wishes to cancel lessons, they must notify Teacher in writing
no less than 30 days prior to the beginning of the next calendar
month. If the Client fails to notify Teacher within 30 days of the next
calendar month, they will be obligated to pay a $100 cancellation fee.
This policy has been put into effect to minimize the loss from perspective students
desiring to study with me. Once you reserve a time slot, I hold that time slot for you or your child.
