Booking Form For Private Tuition
All fields in the form are mandatory. Please give full answers so I can asses the students capabilities properly.
Terms & Conditions
All students and parents signing up for private tuition are expected to adhere to my Terms & Conditions as below.
Either by cash at the time of each weekly session. Or for online students by BACS, prior to each lesson.
Please keep absences to a minimum. I have a 48 hour absence policy. If it’s not possible for your child to attend their lesson, please give 48 hours notice. This may give me time to offer your child’s slot to another student on my waiting list. If you must cancel within 48 hours then a full lesson cancellation fee will be payable.
Exceptions – are accepted only if I have another slot become available later in the week and your child is able to fill it, or in the case of severe illness or emergencies.
The session will start, and finish, on time. If your child is late, the session will still end at the usual time. Occasionally I am late, in this situation I will finish an hour from my start time.
If it’s appropriate I set homework for students to do to in between lessons, for online students this will be sent through via email after the lesson. I appreciate that there are other things in life and schoolwork takes priority but the homework is part of the learning process.
I do not formally mark homework, I review it at the beginning of our next lesson, taking spot checks on questions and seeing where there might have been a problem. If you would like homework formally marked I will have to charge an additional fee.
As a general rule I do not tutor regular weekly students in school holidays. However with students in the run up to exams I will be available for extra lessons.
WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR A COURSE
You will be sent a copy of the T&Cs to sign, which should be returned to me prior to commencing the course.
As you might know the new European General Data Protection Regulation makes it mandatory for me to disclose what data I hold about you and your child(ren) and how I use it. All students and parents signing up for courses give their consent for the following:
Your personal information will not be passed to any third parties without your explicit consent unless there is a legal requirement for it to be disclosed.
Your personal data will be held in a password-encrypted file stored on a password-protected account
Names of student and parent/guardian if applicable
- Age or school year group of student
- School/college attended and details of target qualification
- Address, phone numbers and email addresses of parent/guardian and (if provided) student
- Anything else mutually considered relevant to private tuition
- Email addresses and phone numbers are also stored in email and phone contacts, and basic information relating to the course of study is included in planning documents, which are shared with the student on a regular basis. I will also keep a record of student’s assignments and grades, my notes on student’s progress and any e-mail communication regarding students and their work.
- If a student aged under 18 is emailed, then the parent will also be copied in on the email. Phone numbers will only ever be used for matters directly relevant to tuition.
All of this information is collected solely with the purpose of providing your child with the most adequate learning experience. Your personal information will not be passed to any third parties without your explicit consent, unless there is a legal requirement for it to be disclosed.
You have the right to ask for all information held relating to you to be deleted. Please note, however, that tuition cannot continue after information is deleted and that terms and conditions regarding cancellation remain the same. Unless a client has specifically asked for information to be destroyed, client details will be held on file until the end of the following academic year after a student has finished tuition. Financial data will be retained for seven years for tax reasons. When the information is destroyed, all papers will be shredded to protect the client’s identity and any data held in computer files will be either anonymised or permanently deleted.
Subject access requests: you have the right to see information held relating to this tuition agreement. If you wish to exercise this right then you can do so by making an appointment to come at the beginning of a tuition session.
