This agreement applies to individual consumers and their immediate households only.  RK Tutors may provide tutoring services to institutions or organisations under separately agreed terms.

4. Pricing and payment

The charges - you have agreed to pay for tutoring services are inclusive, unless otherwise specified.

RK Tutors lessons has three different payment plans (Pay As You Go, Pay Monthly and for Group Tutoring).  Lesson rates can be found on RK Tutors website: www.rk-tutors.blogspot.com There is a special discount rate for the first booked lesson(s) purchased and old Maths Doctor students will receive an initial discount.  RK Tutors rates are subject to change at the discretion of RK Tutors.

Payment may be made through accepted PayPal methods via RK Tutors website: www.rk-tutors.blogspot.com.  Until payment for the first lesson has been processed the first lesson will not commence and RK Tutors reserves the right to limit services until any payments have been settled.  Payments can be made via RK Tutors website by the payee.

If you are on a Pay Monthly subscription and wish to purchase additional lessons in excess of your monthly quota, payment for any extra lessons will be charged at the Pay As You Go Rate.  Pay Monthly plans are based around a 4 week rotation from the date of payment.  If you subscribe to a monthly subscription plan any unused hours remaining on your balance will automatically expire at midnight GMT on the last day of the 4 week period to which your monthly subscription relates.

If you purchase a 'Pay-as-you-go' your lesson entitlement will expire once you have used up your full allowance for the current period or at the end of the applicable period from the date of purchase unless otherwise specified. Where unspecified, lessons credits expire 12 months from the date of purchase.

5. Your right to cancel

NB: In addition to any other cancellation rights that RK Tutors may give you, you may cancel tutorial services that you have ordered from RK Tutors up to 24 hours before your first lesson. If you cancel within this period and have not received any tutorial services from RK Tutors prior to cancellation, you will receive a full refund.

Any such appointment may be cancelled without charge provided that the booking change is made up to 24 hours before the day that the tutoring session is due to commence.  Booking changes of a tutorial session made on the day of the appointment or failure to attend a tutorial session that you have booked with a tutor will result in the full price of the tutorial being charged at the tutors discretion.

7. Technical issues

If a tutoring session fails completely due to technical failure you will not be charged for that session. If part of the session fails due to technical failure you will only be charged for the part of the session that was delivered successfully.  If technical failure prevents a number of lessons occurring, and the technical failure is due to your equipment or connection, we may require you to test your system in advance of each lesson.  If problems are identified before a lesson then your tutor will try to assist you to attempt correct your systems at no charge.  However, if extensive assistance is required as a consequence of a technical failure due to your equipment or connection, such as installing a second computer or a full repeat installation of your original computer then the lessons can be frozen until the customer fixes the issue and wishes to recommence.

8. How to make a complaint

If you are unhappy with any tutoring session you must report your concerns to us within 24 hours of the end of the tutoring session.  Please see contact page at RK Tutors website.  Contact details can be found at www.rk-tutors.blogspot.com.  An investigation into your concerns will be made and, if appropriate, arrange to credit back the balance of your lesson allowance. Our decision in this regard is final and binding.

9. Recording of tutoring sessions

Please note that RK Tutors does not currently record tutoring sessions.  For this reason it is advised that an adult such as a parent or guardian is available whilst tutor is tutoring said child.  This is for child protection purposes, quality monitoring purposes, and to resolve any other issues between RK Tutors and our customers in the event of a complaint.

If a customer wishes to cancel their subscription with RK Tutors please see above for information on this. The month period is defined from the date that the customer’s payment is made to RK Tutors, not by calendar month.

Subscription holders have the right to ‘pause’ their package for one month. This allows the customer to pause both their payment and correlating lesson hours for one month. To take advantage of this, the customer must notify RK Tutors before the first payment date of the month in question.

Unused lessons cannot be carried forward to the next subscription month.  RK Tutors may allow the carry-over of a small number of lessons, at tutors discretion. The customer is still obliged to pay the following full month’s subscription if on the Pay Monthly plan.

If a tutoring session fails completely due to technical failure you will not be charged for that lesson. Please see above for further information on this.

A customer may purchase a one off extra lesson for a one-off payment.  This will be charged as a Pay-As-You-Go rate. Alternatively they can upgrade to Pay Monthly.

We advise all pupils to use 45 minute lessons, however we can provide one-hour lessons at the parent’s request.

All lessons and tutor time is measured in 15 minute increments.

Unless otherwise stated Pay-As-You-Go and Pay Monthly plans are for one pupil.  For group tuition please contact RK Tutors and rates are stated on the website.

A customer can pre-book any number of tutoring sessions in advance without charge.  Lessons will not commence if they have not been paid for in advance.  Any such appointment may be cancelled without charge provided that the cancellation is made 24 hours before the day that the tutoring session is due to commence.  Cancellations made on the day of the appointment or failure to attend a tutorial session that you have booked with a Tutor will be charged in full. All sales are final.  For further details on cancellations see above.

Your statutory rights are unaffected by the terms set out above. Should you have any queries about our pricing policies, please contact us by following the instructions found on the ‘Contact’ page on the Site.
