A full refund will be made of the booking fee paid in advance for all lessons cancelled by the tutor. Should you be unable to attend a scheduled lesson you will be able to re schedule to an alternative time with your chosen tutor.

Our teachers do put a lot of time into preparing for your class, so we won't be able to refund you if you cancel your lesson. Lessons which are disrupted due to unforeseen circumstances or if your teacher does not attend the lesson will be eligible for a full refund providing we receive notification within 7 working days following the date of the lesson.
