Policies: Missed Lessons/ Make-Ups

1. The annual agreement reserves your regular lesson time slot. If lessons are missed (from the side of the student) a make-up lesson is not guaranteed. However, I will do my best to rearrange it. We have 12 weeks off in the year which gives us a bit of a cushion if a lesson here or there is missed unexpectedly.

2. If I need to cancel a lesson and am unable to complete the 40 lessons as contracted within the year, I will make a billing adjustment at the end of the year deducting the corresponding rate per missed lesson from my side.

3. Please let me know with advance notice if possible, when you are planning a trip and the dates you will be gone. ( I will do the same on my side) This allows me to schedule “pre-makeup lessons” with you if possible. It also gives me the flexibility to offer makeup lessons to other students in your time slot while you are away.

4. If you need to shift or reschedule a lesson, don’t be afraid to ask. I am always willing to be flexible if I am able to do so.

Cancellation of Agreement

This agreement can be cancelled on a month-to-month basis. Upon cancellation you may be invoiced any difference in price if more lessons had been given than had been paid for under the monthly payment scheme.
