If a student is unable or refuses to engage with our online 1:1 service, you may be able to arrange to transfer them to Fresh Start in Education Ltd. This is our sister company, a specialist in re-engagement and re-integration.
We are realists. Sometimes personalities just don’t mix. A good relationship between student and tutor is an essential part of our service. If your child has a tutor who, for a good reason, cannot connect with, we will replace them with another tutor.
Tutors are aware that we observe their lessons online from time to time without causing any interruption for quality assurance and safeguarding.
In the unlikely event that we are unable to accept your child, we will refund all money paid by you.
If a tutor is ill and we have to cancel a lesson, we will arrange an alternative time and date.
If you cancel a lesson for any reason, you will still be charged. If a student is ten or more minutes late for a lesson, the lesson will automatically be cancelled, and you will still be charged. If you choose to cancel part way through a block of lessons we will refund any outstanding lessons, minus the charges for 2 weeks lessons.
Lessons cost £40.00* each including VAT. An initial payment of £40.00, for the first lesson, must be made at the time of booking by a Credit or Debit Card.

The balance of £160.00 (for the final four lessons of the block of 10 lessons) will be charged to your Card, after the fifth lesson has taken place.
*This excludes music lessons and some specialist subjects, which may cost more. It also excludes resources that are not readily available online, costs of exams if our representative needs to attend a school or other meetings. We will agree any additional charges with you in advance.
